This image from 1992 is from another remarkable science and innovation center, NASA’s Kennedy Space Center. This photo is in a <a href="http://www.nasa.gov/centers/kennedy/news/eagles.html" target="_blank">series of remarkable shots</a> documenting the daily lives of two of the most famous residents: the southern bald eagles that inhabit an enormous nest on the Kennedy Parkway North. Each fall, eagles take up residence in the nest to breed a new generation. That year, a rare and unique event was captured by a camera hidden in the tree -- a second clutch of eggs was laid, even though a healthy eaglet was born just one month earlier. While it is impossible to determine if it is the same eagles returning each year, the continued tolerance shown by this pair to the human presence seems to indicate that they are the same couple.
