“It is sometimes said that scientists are unromantic, that their passion to figure out robs the world of beauty and mystery. But is it not stirring to understand how the world actually works — that white light is made of colors, that color is the way we perceive the wavelengths of light, that transparent air reflects light, that in so doing it discriminates among the waves, and that the sky is blue for the same reason that the sunset is red? It does no harm to the romance of the sunset to know a little bit about it.”

― Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space

Well it seems that the craze around the  New Horizons probe is not so much science based but meme driven. Ok, it’s still matters because in an age that REAL discoveries and enthusiasm is in short supply, this planetary fly-by will bring a wealth of scientific information about how the solar system was  formed–so who cares if memes are driving the convo, people are paying attention and young minds are captivated by the science, this is good.

    “Philadelphia based McNabb & Co. Studio offers a refreshing and unique take on fine woodworking in their project, “The City Series”. Founder James McNabb meticulously uses a bandsaw to individually shape small pieces of various wood species, eventually combining them into stunning collages of sorts. The abstracted architectural forms come together in an interesting perspective on urban sprawl”
