On Tuesday, a bonsai tree boldly went where no bonsai tree has gone before.
Azuma Makoto, a 38-year-old artist based in Tokyo, launched two botanical arrangements into orbit: “Shiki 1,” a Japanese white pine bonsai tree suspended from a metal frame, and an untitled arrangement of orchids, lilies, hydrangeas, and irises.
When did the future switch from being a promise to being a threat?
ugh I’m having the worst shooting pain near my jaw and right ear and everyone I’ve been talking to thinks it’s a nerve condition (my teeth and gums are fine so it’s not a dental thing) and it hurts so much all the time with random seconds of intense stabbing pain that’s even worse, it’s awful.
I can’t deal with having another chronic pain condition. fibermyalgia is shitty enough on it’s own (esp since people still don’t believe my nerve pain is real), I don’t want another one. fingers crossed it’s just a weirdass sinus infection or caused from stress or something because fuck.
International Space Station astronaut Alexander Gerst has posted his “saddest photo yet.” From all the way up in the thermosphere, ISS personnel orbiting 200 miles over the Middle East can see bombs and missiles exploding in Gaza and Israel as the two sides go to war.
Here we have a fine specimen of the rare Clarissimis caligavit, or Bright Cloud Moth. Usually nocturnal and quite secretive, I stumbled upon it napping on a tree in a nearby alleyway not far from where I spotted the Mooncream moth last week.
Another moth-friend finished, hooray! This lady isn’t quite as large as the Mooncream, with her 8.25” wingspan and 3.25” long body, but she still took a mighty long time to embroider. She’s made from fake fur, velvet, felt, wire, hot glue, feathers, and a million miles of embroidery thread.
