Typically, businesses declare bankruptcy when they are burdened by debts they can’t hope to pay off. They are then protected from the demands of creditors for a period of time, allowing them to either liquidate assets to pay debt, or restructure the business to return to profitability. It’s a beneficial system for both debtors and creditors because it helps businesses to pay off debts that would have just pushed them into oblivion otherwise.
When Kodak declared bankruptcy in January of 2012, the company had some serious debts to pay off, including $2.8 billion in unpaid pensions to former UK employees. To put that in perspective, the company is projected to bring in just $2.5 billion in revenue this year.
After selling more than a thousand patents and axing its consumer imaging operations, Kodak has now eliminated much of the debt that’s been hanging over its head. But even with the debt under control, one bankruptcy is often a sign of bad things to come.
The court has banned cellphones after receiving a number of complaints that witnesses and victims were being photographed in the courthouse. The pictures were then posted on social media sites in an effort to intimidate witnesses and keep them from testifying, officials said.
Earlier today, we shared the news that NASA has officially joined Instagram, and just in time to share some photos of the Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (or LADEE) launch on Friday. Well, NASA weren’t the only ones taking pictures that day, and one of the cooler pictures that came out of the launch is the pic you see above by former NASA photographer Ben Cooper.
If his name sounds familiar, then you’ve been following PetaPixel for a long time indeed. Cooper was an official NASA photographer when he agreed to be one of the first people we ever interviewed.
These days he works as a freelancer — photographing everything aerospace, travel, science and astronomy-related — and for this most recent launch, he set himself up on top of the Rockefeller Center and captured the awesome photo above.
Here’s NASA’s official video of the launch:
The photo shows the streak the Minotaur V rocket carrying the LADEE painted across the sky Friday night, with the beautiful New York City skyline making an appearance in the foreground. The launch actually took place in Wallops Island, Virginia, so Cooper’s photo shows it from some 200 miles north.
Luckily for Cooper, even the Empire State Building in the foreground was “posing” in a way. It was lit up blue and green in honor of the Tennis US Open being played in Queens this week.
