An interesting model of our solar system’s path as it travels through space in the Milky Way.
Certainly a departure from usual models that show the Sun as a static object, which it certainly isn’t

I had no idea this was happening. Where are we going?

To fuck some shit up

Around the center of the Milky Way, which is heading towards the Andromeda Galaxy.  And our whole Local Group is moving towards the Virgo Cluster.
But we’ll never actually reach the Virgo Cluster because space is expanding between us and them faster than we’re moving towards it.
Motherfucking science.

SCIENCE BONER. RIGHT NOW.

CASUAL REMINDER THAT YOU AND EVERYTHING ELSE IN THE UNIVERSE IS ACTUALLY FLYING AROUND SPACE AT BATSHIT-CRAZY SPEEDS IT’S ONLY BY A FUCKING MIRACLE CALLED GRAVITY WE HAVEN’T RAMMED SQUARE INTO SOMETHING ELSE YET

Fire glass produces more heat than real wood, and also is environmentally friendly. There is no smoke, it’s odorless and doesn’t produce ash. You are able to stay toasty warm without cutting down trees and the specially formulated glass crystals give off no toxic deposit.

Holy shit it really exists

main benefit: it looks a lot like sorcery

“Hidden away, deep within a forest in central Africa, is something quite special. But the Pollia berry’s name doesn’t quite do it justice, because this thing is shiny. In fact, it’s the shiniest living thing in the world. These fruits, which look a bit like something you might hang on a Christmas tree, owe the title to their microscopic physical structure. In fact, it might shock you to hear that they contain no blue pigment whatsoever. The surface of the berries is actually made of four layers of thick-walled cells, each layer itself containing more layers made of cellulose fibers. All those fibers run parallel in their own layer, but crucially the layers are all slightly rotated relative to each other, forming a spiral when you look from the top down. That means that when light hits the structure, some light is reflected by each layer of fibers in such a way that the light bouncing back is amplified—a concept known as constructive interference—to produce remarkably strong colours. The result is very shiny—shinier than any other living thing on the planet.”

WOW BEAUTIFUL???
