HiRISE images make timeless fashion

by Celine Semaan Vernon — October 20, 2014

We are geeks over here at Slow Factory.

Science turns us on and we truly believe "Science is the Breath of Progress". Our Mars, Revealed! Collection is made with images from HiRISE (High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment is a camera on board the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. The 65 kg (143 lb), $40 million USD instrument was built under the direction of the University of Arizona's Lunar and Planetary Laboratory by Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp. It consists of a 0.5 m (19.7 in) aperture reflecting telescope, the largest so far of any deep space mission, which allows it to take pictures of Mars with resolutions of 0.3 m/pixel (about 1 foot), resolving objects below a meter across.

HiRISE has imaged Mars landers on the surface, including the ongoing Curiosity and Opportunity rover missions.)

Sorry for the long parenthesis but we over here love pointing to Wikipedia and have our timeless product carry a little bit of information/education about the kind of Universe and World we live in. Read Space.com interview with Slow Factory's founder.

Explore our collections and find yourself amazed and in awe with the beautiful world we live in.

Dignity Fund x Anera

by Celine Semaan Vernon — October 09, 2014

We have partnered with ANERA and created the Dignity Fund to support the work of ANERA across the Middle East.

According to the World Heart Federation, heart disease and strokes are the world’s leading cause of death, killing 17.1 million people every year. That is more than cancer, HIV and AIDS and malaria. In honor of World Heart Day, ANERA features the story of two couples in Lebanon in love. The husbands both take heart medicine that ANERA delivers to clinics across Lebanon.
