This Is Big: Scientists Just Found Earth’s First-Cousin

Right now, 500 light years away from Earth, there’s a planet that looks a lot like our own. It is bathed in dim orangeish light, which at high noon is only as bright as the golden hour before sunset back home. 
NASA scientists are calling the planet Kepler-186f, and it’s unlike anything they’ve found. The big news: Kepler-186f is the closest relative to the Earth that researchers have discovered. 
It’s the first Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of another star—the sweet spot between too-hot Mercury-like planets and too-cold Neptunes— and it is likely to give scientists their first real opportunity to seek life elsewhere in the universe. “It’s no longer in the realm of science fiction,” said Elisa Quintana, a researcher at the SETI Institute. 
But if there is indeed life on Kepler-186f, it may not look like what we have here. Given the redder wavelengths of light on the planet, vegetation there would sprout in hues of yellow and orange instead of green.

Liquid Sculpture Art Photography by Jack Long

Jack Long, Liquid Art Photography. My goal is to create intriguing visual art using liquids as my subject. Because it is fluid, and happen so quickly, photography is the only method of seeing them. The photography portion is only the final stage in the creation of these images of fluids suspended in mid-air for a very brief period of time. The whole action takes just a fraction of a second. I work to create and capture the three dimensional fluid form at it’s most interesting shape and position. The form is captured with high speed flash photography that has a duration of as brief as 1/10,000th of a second. Even with complicated construction and extensive testing, the results are still often surprising and serendipitous.

While there is a lot of technical aspects to the work, my goal is to always strive to create visually intriguing photography. As an experienced photographer, the quality of light and form are extremely important in bringing out the characteristics and shapes of the fluids.

Unlike much splash based photography being made lately, the images I create are single capture events. I do not use photoshop composition or digital imaging to create my images. The techniques I use are self discovered and proprietary.

'I have created forms as large as one half of a metre in diameter to as small as 5cm. They all have similar forms that I can then transform depending upon the variables I apply.'

The 53-year-old uses a Canon 1Ds MkII camera with a Canon 28-70 f2.8 lens at 50mm.

Mr Long added: ‘The shutter speed was set at 125, but because I was using high-speed flash, I just needed to trigger the lights while suppressing ambient light.

'I have used an infrared flash trigger at times but these are triggered more by eye and feel than with an electronic system.'

Horses are actually quite smart. The animal we are looking at is called a cow. I know, I live around amish people.

These are gazelles!  Look at them with the jumping.  Gazelles!

Moon Moon!!! <3
