Syria’s Women of War
These are the members of the only all-female fighting unit in the war-torn Syrian city of Aleppo, photographed by Reportage’s Sebastiano Tomada in March of this year. They said they had come together to augment the fighting power of the Free Syrian Army. “Women are fighting on all the fronts now,” a female activist told Sebastiano. “Women often transport weapons and supplies for rebels as they are less likely to be searched at army and security checkpoints.”
On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first people to walk on the moon. The giant leap was made possible by decades of scientific research, rigorous testing, and new innovations spearheaded by NASA with collaborations by many other groups and organizations, one of which was GE. Among other contributions to the technology of the Apollo program, GE researchers developed a special silicon rubber for the astronaut’s boots. This week, to celebrate the 45th anniversary of the moon landing, GE, Android Homme and JackThreads collaborated on a new sneaker called The Missions, which Buzz Aldrin is wearing in the picture above. The sneakers feature lightweight carbon fiber used for jet engine components, and a hydrophobic coating similar to the materials that prevent ice from forming on wind turbines.
