The first modern and truly accurate measurement of the speed of light was conducted between 1924 and 1926 at mount wilson by albert a. michelson, who was america’s first nobel prize winner in a science field. the historic relevance of the mount wilson observatory doesn’t start with michelson however, george hale essentially founded the study of astrophysics at the observatory just after the turn of the 20th century. 📷 by @jamespasieka #losangeles #night_shots #moon_shot #nightsky #la #laskyline #great_captures_city

One major reason that hollywood emerged as the center of filmmaking is that early on, most moviemaking patents were held by thomas edison’s company in new jersey, and filmmakers were sued to stop their productions. to escape this, they began moving out west, where enforcement was difficult. 📷 by @artbyartla #losangeles #losangeles_la #hollywoodsign #hollywoodlife #dronestagram #city_captures

The walt disney concert hall is held together by tape 😂. okay, not duct tape, but a special kind of adhesive. the outside walls are covered in 6,500 stainless steel panels, no two of which are the same shape or size. permasteelisa, the construction team, needed a way to invisibly fasten each 145-pound piece of steel—no rivets, no welds. the solution: 3m’s vhb tape, an acrylic foam adhesive so strong it can hold locomotives together. 📷 by @filipshobot #lalaland #waltdisneyconcerthall #losangeles_city #city_captures #citygrammers
