Bryan Cranston won several Emmy awards for his portrayal of Walter White on “Breaking Bad.”
AMC


  • Breaking Bad” star Bryan Cranston shared a video of his transformation into drug kingpin Walter White on Twitter Monday. 
  • Cranston, who had a brief cameo in “El Camino,” the “Breaking Bad” spin-off film that premiered on Netflix this month, had to wear a bald cap and special makeup for the scene. 
  • The time-lapse video shows the actor getting fitted with the bald cap as well as a fake moustache. 
  • Cranston had a full head of hair at the time due to his role as anchorman Howard Beale in the Broadway adaptation of “Network,” and only had 36 hours to film the cameo. 
  • The actor wore a bald cap to resemble Walter White again, but his head shape had to be altered in post-production. 
  • “We also had to get a little digital (effects) help to shrink Bryan’s head so it didn’t look bulbous with the bald cap on,” writer-director Vince Gilligan told USA Today

Phobos’ Shadow: Experience an Eclipse on Mars with NASA’s InSight Lander

Phobos’ Shadow: Experience an Eclipse on Mars with NASA’s InSight Lander

NASA’s InSight Mars lander focuses its sensitive instruments on the Martian surface and below, but it took a moment to appreciate celestial events last week: two quick eclipses of the sun by Mars’ moon Phobos.

InSight, which landed on the Red Planet in November, caught views of one eclipse with its Instrument Deployment Camera on March 5 and the other with its Instrument Context Camera on March 6. Its radiometer also showed a 1 degree Celsius drop in temperature for both short eclipses, as well as a third one. InSight’s cameras are essential to setting up and operating its array of instruments that track Mars weather, seismic activity and below-surface heat.

While cameras from the Mars spacecraft have captured a Phobos eclipse before — including Curiosity tracking the moon’s progress across the sun — this is the first time this type of observation was made with a radiometer.

The camera was able to capture a brief darkening of the ground around it over the 24.3 second eclipse. (The camera captures a frame of video every 50 seconds.)

“The cooling is by about 1 degree C and is thus somewhat larger than expected and certainly better than with the most pessimistic estimates (that would have said we will not be able to see it at all)!” Tilman Spohn, an instrument lead for InSight, said in a blog post from the German space agency DLR. “So the team is happy and rejoicing about the first eclipse on Mars ever observed with a radiometer.”

Just like meteor impacts with Mars and Marsquakes can help InSight’s seismometer learn about the planet’s composition, this natural eclipse helped the radiometer learn about the makeup of the material near the planet’s surface based on how it conducted the change in heat.

“There is a quantity that scientists call the thermal inertia,” Spohn said. “The quantity depends on the thermal conductivity of the near surface material, its density and its heat capacity.” A small value would lead to a bigger observed effect from the brief eclipse, and would suggest low thermal conductivity or a more porous material.

“The team will now have to analyze the data and come up with a model of the uppermost millimeters or so of the surface material,” he added. “So it is part of our efforts to measure the geophysical parameters of Mars.”

InSight deployed its instruments one by one after its landing last year, and it placed its final instrument, a heat probe “mole,” on Feb. 12. The mole has since hit a rocky obstacle as it drills itself into the Martian surface, and Spohn said in the blog post that the team has been meeting to figure out next steps for the instrument. The thermal conductivity measurement, as well as measurements from the seismometer as the mole tries to propel itself downward, should help the researchers figure out its exact predicament.

Her closet specifically dedicated to designer bags has reached legendary status.

And now fans finally know just how many purses are stored in Kylie Jenner‘s special room which is reported to have over $1 million worth in product.

The 21-year-old make-up mogul’s interior designer Martyn Lawrence-Bullard revealed that the reality star has over 400 designer handbags in the closet of her Hidden Hills mansion.

The 51-year-old London-native opened up to People magazine about Kylie’s massive ‘purse closet that is dedicated to her collection of incredible bags.’

Back in August, Kylie gave her fans a special inside look at her impressive collection for a video on her YouTube channel as Bullard shed even more light on it.

He said: ‘There are at least 400 bags, mostly Hermés, lots of Birkin bags and then Louis Vuitton, lots of Chanel and some Dior and Fendi.

‘Lots of them are collectors items. She’s bought some as investments and they’re treated like works of art.’

Bullard added that she has a individual closets for everyday clothes, workout clothes, a VIP storage room, the handbag closet, and even a custom-designed fitting room. 

In the video posted on her YouTube channel back in August she revealed that she even has a few handbags set aside for her one-year-old daughter Stormi including a $7,700 pink Hermes bag that will likely be her little girl’s first purse.

Kylie has at least four leather Hermes Birkin bags, which cost $11,000 or more a piece, while her orange suede Birkin retails for about $20,000.

‘The one that I think is the most unique and cool is definitely the Dalmatian. I think it is really beautiful,’ she says of the limited-edition Birkin, which costs about $20,000.

Kylie also thinks her Hermes So Black Birkin is ‘pretty cool’ because it has all black hardware. The limited-edition style, which was estimated to be worth $10,000 to $15,000, went for $24,000 at a Christie’s auction.

Last year it was revealed that Kylie in on track to become the youngest ever self-made billionaire.

The star, who is nearing the billion dollar mark through her cosmetics empire, said: ‘The reason I got into makeup is it’s all about making yourself feel better.’

Kylie’s home has been featured very prominently recently as she is featured in Architectural Digest’s annual Star Power issue.

Little Big Town and Kassi Ashton Debut Powerful Songs About The Role of Women in Society

Hootie & The Blowfish gave both a glimpse into the future and a look backward at Universal Music Group Nashville’s 10th annual Team UMG at the Ryman luncheon during Nashville’s Country Radio Seminar Feb. 14. 

While Hootie frontman Darius Rucker, a Capitol Nashville Records artist, was listed to play the concert, which featured performances from more than a dozen UMGN acts, the reunion with his former bandmates was a surprise to the radio programmers who filled the pews at country’s Mother Church.

The group, which also includes original members Mark Bryan, Jim “Soni” Sonefeld and Dean Felber, performed “Only Wanna Be With You,” and “Hold My Hand.” Both songs were featured on the band’s 1994 debut, Cracked Rear View, which has sold more than 10 million copies in the U.S. alone, according to the Recording Industry Assn. of America.

While Rucker has enjoyed a long and prosperous career as a country artist since Hootie & The Blowfish went on hiatus in 2007, the band appearance served as a preview of what’s to come on the Group Therapy tour, the group’s first full tour in more than a decade. Hootie & The Blowfish are also making a new album for UMGN.

The event provided plenty of other striking moments, including show opener Little Big Town’s debut of “For the Daughters,” a beautiful, yet pointed, song about the role that society puts many young women in as compliant “good girls.” It included the lyrics “Say what you mean just as long as you nod your head with your lipstick on / And pose like a trophy on a shelf and dream for everyone but not yourself / I’ve heard of God the son and God the father / I’m just looking for a God for the daughters.”

The female theme continued with Kassi Ashton. Instead of singing “Violins,” whose video was released yesterday, Ashton performed new song “Pretty Shiny Things, a biting anthem that included the lyrics “Put your makeup on, girl / stand up straight / your face will take you farther than your brain / you oughta know by now that beauty is pain.”

Other performers appearing at the showcase included Eric Church, Dierks Bentley, Keith Urban, Chris Stapleton, Jordan Davis, Travis Denning, Adam Hambrick, Caylee Hammack, Brandon Lay and Maddie & Tay.
