A Wednesday, Dec. 18, 2013 photo shows the second imaging chamber, which was one of the first of the heartbeat simulators that were built by machinist Juan Fernandez (this one was made with plastic screws and was compatable with MRI machines) at Methodist, in Houston. Fernandez's handiwork has made some very significant contributions to in the history of cardiovascular surgery. He works on designing all kinds of instruments for the doctors and researchers at hospitals whether they be complex prototypes for medical devices or trying to remake simple surgical tools that have been discontinued.

In a Wednesday, Dec. 18, 2013 photo, Juan Fernandez, the machinist at Houston's Methodist Hospital, works on a project in his machine shop at Methodist in Houston. Fernandez's handiwork has made some very significant contributions to in the history of cardiovascular surgery. He works on designing all kinds of instruments for the doctors and researchers at hospitals whether they be complex prototypes for medical devices or trying to remake simple surgical tools that have been discontinued. Prior to coming to Methodist two years ago, Fernandez worked for Baylor College of Medicine as their machinist for nearly 25 years, working with greats like Dr. Michael DeBakey, helping the heart surgeon design the first prototype for his left ventricular assist device.

Astronaut Edwin E. "Buzz" Aldrin Jr. poses for a photograph beside the U.S. flag deployed on the moon during the Apollo 11 mission on July 20, 1969. (AP Photo/NASA/Neil A. Armstrong) Conspiracy theorists have claimed that photos of the lunar landings are bogus due to: a lack of visible stars; inconsistent shadows and lighting that seem to track with a studio production; what looks like the letter “C†written on a moon rock and the lunar surface; an Australian woman’s alleged claim that she saw a soft drink bottle in the frame while watching one of the manned landings take place on live television. NASA has provided plausible explanations for all of the above: Stars weren’t visible due to the brightness of the sun during the lunar daytime; inconsistent shadows and lighting were the result of lens distortion, lunar dust, uneven ground and multiple light sources; the “C†shape does not appear in original lunar camera film and is believed to be a coiled hair that made its way into the printing processes
