Stay Sharp in NASACertified Sunglasses

first_img Tune In As Brad Pitt Speaks With NASA Astronaut on ISSNASA Says 2 Asteroids Will Safely Fly By Earth This Weekend When America’s space program was revving up in the 1980s, NASA was tasked with finding a way to protect astronauts’ eyes from space radiation.Inspired by the peepers of birds of prey, which produce oil droplets that filter out harmful light, scientists developed a selective-filtering capability for cosmonauts.Back on Earth, California-based Eagle Eyes Optics began integrating the polarized lens technology into its sunglasses, promising to block out 99.9 percent of damaging rays—which can impair the retina and cause cataracts—while allowing in vision-enhancing light.Eagle Eyes’ TriLenium Lens Technology with Broad Spectrum Polarization was certified in 2007 by the US Space Foundation and later inducted into the Space Foundation’s NASA Technology Hall of Fame.“Our products cross the bridge of form plus function,” CEO Alan Mittelman said in 2009. “And we have long been proud as being recognized as the brand ‘built on science.’”via Eagle Eyes/NASAHumans are born with clear eyes. But as we age, sensitive tissues are destroyed, and our vision deteriorates. Unfortunately, it can take years to even notice the damage done by exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays. And by that time, you may have developed cataracts, which can lead to reduced vision and, if left untreated, blindness.“It has only been recently that people started to realize the importance of this,” Mittleman said.Eagle Eyes’ technology is available in three versions—TriLenium (with triple filter polarization), TriLenium 7 (added smudge- and waterproof coating), TriLenium 10 (added anti-glare coating)—and come in a variety of frame materials, styles, and colors (including clip-ons).Eagle Eyes understands the importance of healthy vision, and often donates products to places in need of eye protection, like Alaska, where the sun reflects off of the snow and increases the chances of cataracts.

Game of Thrones Actors Crash Kit Haringtons SNL Sketch

first_imgStay on target ‘Game of Thrones’ Targaryen Prequel Series Is Reportedly Coming to HBO‘Game of Thrones’ Star Kit Harington Joins Marvel’s &#… Game of Thrones is approaching its last season, but we do not need to say goodbye to the fantasy series just yet. Kit Harington, also known as Jon Snow, hosted Saturday Night Live on April 6, and some of the series’ starlets crashed his sketch and demanded Season 8 spoilers.On Saturday, Harington went on stage and was “surprised” by some important audience members, including Emilia Clarke, Rose Leslie, and John Bradley, who all wanted to know more about the final season of Game of Thrones.After tackling various audience questions, Harington politely told everyone that he wasn’t going to reveal who wins the battle or how Game of Thrones ends. And, that’s when Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) pressed an interesting question: “Could you just give us a general sense of how it ends?” She then went on to explain how it’s been “so long” since they wrapped up filming for the series, and how she spent most of her time talking to a dragon that’s really a “tennis ball on a green pole.”Clarke wasn’t the only actor to crash the monologue: Bradley (Samwell Tarly) asked Harington what happens to his character, and Leslie (Ygritte) demanded Harington tell her how they’re going to continue earning money, since he’s the “King of the North.”Harington’s skit wasn’t the only treat for fans, SNL also teased some mock prequels, sequels, and spin-offs for Game of Thrones, which is ending its reign on HBO soon. Castle Black, a “sexy moody drama about forbidden love” involved Jon falling hard for a White Walker lady. Arya receives a Daria-like makeover and attempts to go to high school in Arya, and Samwell and Gilly enjoy time at home in The Queen of Kings Landing. The icing on top of the cake was Game of Thrones: Special Victims Unit, where Ice-T and Mariska Hargitay “investigated” grisly Westeros crimes.Game of Thrones Season 8 airs on HBO on April 14.More on Geek.com:Kit Harington Acts Out Leslie Jones’ ‘Game of Thrones’ Fantasy in ‘SNL’ PromoNew ‘Game of Thrones’ Teasers Show Powerful Ties and White Walker Aftermath‘Game of Thrones’ Showrunners Reveal the Night King’s Dark Motiveslast_img read more
