Chris Hadfield, the commander of Expedition 35 on the International Space Station has recorded David Bowie's Space Oddity while in space.

Automatically sync files via secure, distributed technology.
This works like existing cloud file storage systems such as dropbox, box.com etc, except that:
File transfers are encrypted and use the Bittorrent protocol. Your information is never stored on a server in the cloud and your data is protected by private keys. This means that no-one but you can access it.
BitTorrent Sync was designed with privacy and security in mind. All the traffic between devices is encrypted with AES cypher and a 256-bit key created on the base of the secret—a random string (20 bytes or more) that is unique for every folder.

The following essay is by William Blake, who has been held in solitary confinement for nearly 26 years.
"He describes here in painstaking detail his excruciating experiences over the last quarter-century. “I’ve read of the studies done regarding the effects of long-term isolation in solitary confinement on inmates, seen how researchers say it can ruin a man’s mind, and I’ve watched with my own eyes the slow descent of sane men into madness—sometimes not so slow,” Blake writes.
