Museum of Science and Industry (MSI) is located in Chicago, Illinois in Jackson Park, in the Hyde Park neighborhood adjacent to Lake Michigan. It is housed in the former Palace of Fine Arts from the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition. Initially endowed by Sears, Roebuck and Company president and philanthropist Julius Rosenwald, it first opened in 1933 during the Century of Progress Exposition.
Among its diverse and expansive exhibits, the Museum features a working coal mine, a German submarine (U-505) captured during World War II, a 3,500-square-foot (330 m2) model railroad, the first diesel-powered streamlined stainless-steel passenger train (Pioneer Zephyr), and a NASA space capsule used on the Apollo 8 mission.

54th edition of the downtown St. Patrick's Day @ Chicago. Every year on St. Patrick's Day, the river is dyed green.
Bill King, the administrator of Chicago's St. Patrick's Day committee, stated that "the idea of dyeing the Chicago River green originally came about by accident when a group of plumbers were using fluorescein dye to trace illegal substances that were polluting the river".
The secret ingredients used to dye the river green today are claimed to be safe and not harmful to the thousands of living organisms that find a habitat in the Chicago river.
I often have wandered in deep contemplationIt seems that the mind runs wild when youre all aloneThe way that it could beThe way that it should beThings I'd do differently if I could do them again
Ive always loved spring time, the passing of winterThe green of the new leaves and life goin onThe promise of morningThe long days of summerWarm nights of loving her beneath the bright starsJ Denver
Colors changing huemorning fields of amber grainweathered faces lined in painare soothed beneath the artist's loving hand.
