Note: not a full-size replica.
- Stephanie Kwolek, the inventor of Kevlar, passed away last Wednesday. She was 90 years old. (via Geeks Are Sexy)
- A World of Warcraft player named Doubleagent has managed to hit level 90 without choosing a faction. How, you ask? He never left the Pandaren starting zone. (via The Escapist)
- There’s a new play about Aphra Behn, 17th-century playwright, poet, novelist, and British spy. The play is called Empress of the Moon: The Lives of Aphra Behn, and it sounds right up our alley. For those who live near Washington DC, you can check it out at the Capital Fringe Festival, starting July 10. (via Braak)
- That’s a wrap: The Hunger Games trilogy has now officially finished filming. (via Oh No They Didn’t!)
