Psst! Did you know NASA is still in the space business? Yup. Although the space shuttle program concluded in 2011, rockets are still launching and NASA is still exploring.

#LOVEVA: See the LOVE in Virginia

Y’all know “Virginia is for lovers,” right? Launched in 1969, “Virginia is for lovers” is one of the most brilliant tourism slogans EVER. The Virginia Tourism Corporation, the state tourism office, knows “love is at heart of every Virginia vacation” and has created LOVEwork, a 16 feet wide by 7 feet tall artwork of the word “LOVE.” Think of it as a piece of tangible love.
