Riding a Unicorn

Posted in Kid Talk with tags , on May 29, 2015 by Aaron

I have a friend who is pretty strict about what she lets her eat and drink, but the other night she tried her first taste of cool aid.

“Do you like it?…”

“Omg, mom, it’s like riding on a unicorn!”

The Horsehead Nebula

Posted in Space with tags , , on May 23, 2015 by Aaron

As a kid I took an after school astronomy thing in elementary school. I remember they blew up an inflatable planetarium that had a special projector pointing at the ceiling. They told us Greek myths while we all lay down on the floor looking up at the different constellations. Out of all of them, the one that I could usually find without any trouble was Orion.

Of all the gorgeous space pictures floating around, the Horsehead Nebula is one that people are usually familiar with. Until I saw this gif, I don’t think I ever thought about where a particular image came from in a specific point in space.

It was discovered by a Scottish woman who worked as a main for a Harvard professor in Boston after her husband left her. He apparently was frustrated with his male assistants and said that his maid could do a better job then them. He later hired her to do clerical work and during that time she discovered nebula, stars, and novae. One of them being the Horsehead Nebula in 1888.

This super inquisitive young deer was wandering around my yard trying to figure out what my young chicken (Anna) was. It would slowly approach to try to smell it. Anna would hop a few feet away. The deer would try again… This comedy act went on for a good 5 minutes.

This can join the cute images of interspecies babies meeting that the internet is so good at sharing.
