Revolutionary Telescope Gets Green Light
An 82-foot telescope boasting ten times the resolution of the Hubble Space Telescope has successfully passed design reviews and is ready to be constructed.
The Giant Magellan Telescope will use a light-collecting mirror surface more than six times the area of current instruments to hunt for distant, potentially habitable planets and let astronomers time travel back to a billion years after the Big Bang.
GMT is going to be amazing!
GMT GIFs! Two of my very favorite things combined!!!
Seriously though, the GMT is going to be fantastic, and not just because A&M is a member of the consortium. That doesn’t hurt, though!

Arriving at Heathrow Airport (2/3/14, London)
I hate airport paparazzi (I see them at JFK and LAX pretty much every time I fly in/out of one of those airports, which is often, and they seem pretty awful), but hnggggg these pictures. Jeremy, hun, I’m sorry you were harassed, but right now my brain is mostly just HI PRETTY HIIIIIIIII.
Here’s a version of Van Gogh’s Starry Night created using thousands of curled up strips of paper. Susan Myers used a process called paper quilling to painstakingly build up her version of the piece.
Because I cannot even begin to handle any of the Cap stuff that’s just come out, here, let’s all stare at this amazing version of Starry Night instead, mkay?
I frequently get asks about what to do with unwanted gifts. Things that people gave you that hold neither practical purpose nor sentimental value beyond a fondness for the giver. Things that you have no use or desire for. And then, last week, I was browsing the #ufyh tag on Twitter, and I came across this:
Holy shit. What a great way to think about that. Once the gift has been given and received, the emotional transaction is done. You are free to donate, recycle, re-gift, or otherwise get rid of unwanted gifts. It was given to you, and it is now your possession to do with whatever you want, even if what you want is to get it out of your home.
Let go of the guilt, and get rid of the crap.
I need to do/remember this. For reals.
The first episode of the Aces sitcom!
A Party - Tom’s mother decides he needs to find a wife and settle down. Tom is giving it a go, but he’s just not feeling it, and he doesn’t know why.
My friend is making this webseries and it’s going to be awesome! They filmed the pilot on their own dime and now are running an IndieGoGo campaign to raise money for more episodes. Tumblr is the most ace-friendly space I’ve ever found on the internet—I hope we can help this project (a) make an amusing webseries, and (b) help increase the visibility of the asexual community! Help fund them! http://igg.me/at/aces-sitcom
