“Out of this world, quite literally: The beautiful and mysterious Fukang meteorite” - “Within the rock, translucent golden crystals of a mineral called olivine gleamed among a silvery honeycomb of nickel-iron.”

Hey tumblr friends
let’s pool our collective funds and go buy this house.
And then we’ll install a bunch of computers and enable wifi
and just spend every day on tumblr and reading books and drinking tea and hot chocolate
Earth at Night
Sometimes, a little bit of perspective can be breathtaking. At night the International Space Station can see brilliant auroras, the curve of the earth, networks of city lights spreading out like veins—and sometimes all three at once. Feast your eyes on some of the best images from NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Centre Flickr stream.

Sometimes i just want to punch these ppl.
Why? This is awesome and recycles a bunch of stuff that would otherwise be sitting on a bunch of other stuff that pollutes our planet.
Turning the brightness down doesn’t alleviate that, does it?
Recently, researchers have found evidence that suggests the colour temperature of one’s monitor can effect on your circadian rhythms, headaches, etc.
Obviously, it’s not a cureall, but it goes a long way to help. I’ve been using it for years, and it helps avoid headaches and other annoyances.
Here’s what f.lux has to say:
Ever notice how people texting at night have that eerie blue glow?
Or wake up ready to write down the Next Great Idea, and get blinded by your computer screen?
During the day, computer screens look good—they’re designed to look like the sun. But, at 9PM, 10PM, or 3AM, you probably shouldn’t be looking at the sun.
F.lux fixes this: it makes the color of your computer’s display adapt to the time of day, warm at night and like sunlight during the day.
It’s even possible that you’re staying up too late because of your computer. You could use f.lux because it makes you sleep better, or you could just use it just because it makes your computer look better.
It’s available for Windows, Mac, Linux, and iPhone/iPad.
I downloaded this earlier and when I was setting it up, I was like “WHOAH the nighttime lighting is SO orange/yellow and horrible and distracting,” but then I waited until the nighttime and it’s actually awesome. I switched back to the regular lighting for a second, just for comparison, and it was like a giant blue flashlight being shined right into my eyeballs. How did I live with that?!

Commissioned painting. One of my favorite recent works, I think. :)
I’ll be doing a very limited edition print run of this piece to start off my personal print shop. They’ll be gallery quality inkjet prints, signed, numbered, 13”x19” size and run about $80 USD. E-mail me if you’d like to reserve one in advance. Otherwise, there will be an announcement in the future when they’re available!
