How NASA’s Parker Solar Probe Will Touch the Sun

In the early hours of August 12, 2018, NASA’s Parker Solar Probe launched from Florida’s Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, beginning a historic seven-year journey to ‘touch the sun.’ From The New York Times:

The Parker Solar Probe is designed to expand our understanding of the sun, measuring electrical and magnetic fields, cataloging the ingredients of the solar wind and photographing the corona — the outer atmosphere that is millions of degrees hotter than the sun’s surface. Instruments on the spacecraft will be able to detect details that cannot be seen from farther away, and hopefully fill in many of the blanks in human understanding of our star.

To do this the probe will venture as close as 3.8 million miles from the sun—”about one-tenth the distance between the sun and Mercury“—and, at one point during the mission, it will be traveling “roughly 430,000 miles per hour, setting the record for the fastest-moving object made by humanity.”


It’s also safeguarded by a revolutionary heat shield that will endure 2,500 degree Fahrenheit temperatures in order to keep the probe’s instruments at a comfortable 85F. Read more about the Parker Solar Probe mission at The New York Times and at NASA.gov.

Herman Brown is Feeling Down

“Herman’s quiet world is suddenly interrupted by something loud and stressful.” What is that noise? What is that feeling? Is it as big as it seems or are things not quite that bad?

Herman Brown is Feeling Down is a Royal College of Art graduation film by London-based animator Dan Castro. The short combines abstracted shapes with music and sound by composer Kenny Young to embody Herman’s anxiety and tumult. Via Short of the Week, Castro explains:

“I wanted to take the feelings of anxiety I was having and try and deal with them in a bright and colourful way, a way that kind of embraced them for what they are, and what they really felt like to me.”



He also played and experimented with the film’s abstract visuals:

“As the film was animated primarily in After Effects in a sort of unrigged, cut-up style, it meant I could work very quickly and test things out and see how I felt about them. But this process took a long time to develop a structure, and when I was stressing out about it I decided to blow off some steam and try something new, experimenting with traditional 35mm scratch animation – painting inks directly onto 35mm film, using bleach to remove the chemicals on it, all sorts.

This required very little planning – I allowed myself to just roll with it and see what happened. That’s how the stress-jazzy bits were made – it was actually the most relaxing and fun part of the process!”


The ink-on-film technique is also reminiscent of some of our favorite animations: Boogie Doodle (1948), Pen Point Percussion (1951) and Dots (1940), three films featuring the pioneering work of Scottish Canadian animator Norman McLaren.

We also recommend Osvaldo Cavandoli’s La Linea, the Chuck Jones-directed short The Dot & the Line: A Romance in Lower Mathematics (1965), The 30 Dots Collection, and Geometry of Circles.

Over thirty hummingbirds splash & chatter in a bird bath

Flying, hopping, splashing, and chattering. More than 30 hummingbirds take a morning bath together in a Beverly Hills backyard. The footage was captured by Youtuber WildWingsLA in the spring of 2017. It’s a rare treat to see so many sharing the same space as hummingbirds can be territorial.

Related DIY: How to Create a Hummingbird-Friendly Yard and How to Tame Angry Hummingbird Behavior. For a feeder that’s easy-to-clean-and-refill, we like this red Couronne Recycled Glass Hummingbird Feeder. There’s also a dye-free sugar and water recipe at Audubon.org.

The Future Forest, a plastic-filled botanical garden in Mexico

Our planet is drowning in waste, especially that of consumer plastic, washing up on every shore and taking over our nature. The only reason this isn’t visible everywhere, are the people working hard everyday to collect and sort our trash. In Mexico City these heroes are known as pepenadores.

Thomas Dambo made The Future Forest, not only to create awareness of this huge issue, but as a tribute to these everyday heroes, not nearly getting the recognition and respect, we all owe them.

Together with the pepenadores, their children, more than 700 students, an orphanage, an elderly home, and more than 100 volunteers, in two months Thomas and his team turned 3 tons of plastic waste into a colorful 500m2 forest with thousands of trees, plants, flowers and animals.

The Future Forest was built in Mexico’s Jardín Botánico de Chapultepec as a part of the 2018 Festival FYJA. Filmmaker Alexander Kaiser Lauritzen captured the Danish artist’s collaborative project in the video above. You can also see more photos on Dambo’s instagram:

A female blue orchard bee builds her ‘bee-jeweled’ nest

A new type of bee is buzzing through California’s orchards. And researchers are hoping that the iridescent, greenish insect may help provide a more efficient way to pollinate nuts and fruits in an era when traditional honeybees have struggled.

Unlike honeybees, blue orchard bees don’t sting humans. And instead of building large colonies with thousands of worker bees caring for eggs laid by a queen bee, female blue orchard bees work alone to build their nests and stock them with food. They’re solitary bees, like most of the 4,000 species of bees in North America.

And though they don’t reproduce as quickly as honey bees, fewer female orchard bees are needed per acre for orchard pollination. In this Deep Look video, we can see how they lay their eggs in long thin tubes packed in a pattern of mud partitions, pollen provisions, and individual eggs. It’s a ‘bee-jeweled’ nest of about eight eggs per six-inch tube, sealed with a final bit of mud to keep them protected until spring.

To explore pollinating with solitary bees, check out MasonBeesForSale.com. They sell seasonal mason and leafcutter bee tubes and supplies, and have some good starter FAQs. We also recently bought the Mason Bee Management System House. It has an overhanging roof to protect the openings and deconstructable trays to clean the holes off-season.
