Each week our editors gather their favorite finds from around the internet and recommend them to you right here. These are not articles about watches, but rather outstanding examples of journalism and storytelling covering topics from fashion and art to technology and travel. So go ahead, pour yourself a cup of coffee, put your feet up, and settle in.

The Disposables – The Washington Post

These days we're so focused on instant gratification and the advancement of technology that sometimes it's fun, and even rewarding, to take a step back and enjoy the simpler things in life. This is a photo series where 25 women across America were given disposable cameras (you know, the good old fashioned plastic ones we used to take to the drug store for developing) and asked to document their lives over the course of a few weeks. The results are a raw and unedited look into the lives of a cross-section of American women. I found that this format made me connect with each of them much more than any crisp, edited, and perfectly shot photo from a high-tech phone could. Now I'm considering buying some disposable cameras for my own trips.

Christina Koch Lands On Earth, And Crosses A Threshold For Women In Space – The New York Times

Initially, I read this because Astronaut Koch and I share a name and I’m always game for some lady empowerment. That said, it’s also an interesting look at women in STEM careers and how their accomplishments can be overshadowed by being the “first woman” due to scarcity of opportunities within their field. Astronauts Koch and Meir completed the first all-female spacewalk, and Ms. Koch also now holds the record for the longest stay by a female astronaut in space at 328 days. The all-female spacewalk would have happened earlier, however, last year when Ms. Koch and another female astronaut, Anne McClain, were planning to go, NASA only had one suit fit for a woman, so they sent a man in Astronaut McClain’s place (no joke, this really happened). As women are more affected by radiation, NASA has previously limited the time women could spend in space, but with Astronaut Koch’s 328-day mission, this could change and open doors for women in the future. Her record-setting accomplishments do help pave the way for female astronauts, so they are notable in their own right.

What If The Oscars Nominated A Foreign Film For Best Picture Every Year? – The Ringer

This isn't exactly a revolutionary take, but it's one that is worth repeating: The Oscars only really rewards American films. Sure, there's a "Best Foreign Film" category, but the main Best Picture awards, the acting awards, and the myriad technical awards tend to focus exclusively on American films, or, at a stretch, films from other English-speaking countries. But that's a shame. Often some of the best films in a given year don't come out of Hollywood and aren't in English. Ahead of this week's 92nd annual Academy Awards, The Ringer takes a look at some years past in which casting a slightly wider net might have yielded different (and, in hindsight, much better) results.

The Night Sky Will Never Be The Same – The Atlantic 

Technology not only changes the way we interact with the world but it also changes how we view the world. Elon Musk’s ambitious project, Starlink, aims to bring affordable high-speed internet across the globe. In order to do so, SpaceX has already begun launching satellites into orbit and hopes to have 1,500 satellites in place this year alone. These satellites, which are said to be brighter than 99% of existing objects in Earth’s orbit, are producing diagonal white streaks in the night’s sky, streaks that are causing a disruption in the astronomy community. The Atlantic takes a deep-dive into how these satellites are affecting astronomers’ research and what the future might look when more companies (OneWeb, Amazon) join the fray.

Listening Spaces – Imgur

This weekend, I share a small favorite from the internet. This is an Imgur collection of photographs of where people sit and listen to music. Some of the spaces are modern, others are vintage. Some are fancy, some are simple. All are weirdly personal and cathartic (for me). From audiophile setups with lovely mid-century modern fittings to bedrooms with a lot of wattage, I love imagining myself in these spaces with my current jam pumping out of a great set of speakers. Whether you're a fan of audio equipment, interior design, furniture, or otherwise, this is worth a slow scroll while you captain your way through the weekend from the comfort of your favorite listening space.
