Good Night, Chicago

I like Chicago. The city is clean, the architecture is nice, Wrigley Field is fun, a river cuts through it and the lake is right there. I wanted to make fun of the Bean but it drew me in like a mosquito about to be zapped. And, hey, I realised that I don’t really like ketchup when I visited Chicago. It’s a nice place.


Dune And The Fantastic Science-Fiction Cities Of Finnian MacManus

I like Finnian MacManus’ reimagination of the worlds of Dune, the 1965 book by Frank Herbert. Above you can see the main palace in Harakkeen — a renamed city of Arrakeen in an alternative ending where House Atreides loses the war against House Harkonnen. The rest of his work is quite cool too.


I'll Never Get Tired Of Breathtaking Flyby Videos Of Earth From Space

I can’t even begin to imagine how incredible it must be to be an astronaut and see Earth from space like this. It can’t ever get old, right? I mean, I’m amazed every time I see one of these flyby videos and I’m just watching on YouTube.


I'm Not Sure Bike Rides Can Be More Epic Than Through The Isle Of Skye

There have probably been mountain bike rides that have been more intense than Danny Macaskill’s tour through the Isle of Skye in Scotland and perhaps there have been a few rides slightly more beautiful of his ride on the Cuillin Ridgeline, but I can’t imagine any feeling more epic than this. It is stunning.


Turning A Chunk Of Wood Into Something Beautiful Is Satisfying To Watch

Here is Alan Holland performing his craft: woodturning. He takes a big chunk of wood, spins it on a lathe and shaves and cuts it down into something much more detailed. It’s painstaking work, but it looks absolutely rewarding. Getting to the finished product is like discovering something that was hidden underneath.


A Beautiful Visual Diary Of Asia In Slow Motion

Markus Kontiainen visited 11 different cities in Japan, China and Southeast Asia over 35 days and recorded this visual diary of what looks like an absolutely magical place. I’ve been to many of the cities he’s visited, but after watching his video, it’s clear I need to go to more.


There's Nothing Cuter Than These Puppies Swimming Underwater

OK, people, stop doing whatever the hell you’re doing. Stop working, stop eating, stop loving or hating. Stop. Stop and watch these perfect photos of puppies swimming underwater by Seth Casteel< ./a> Because nothing else matters, really. Nothing. Nothing but puppies.


These Beautiful Mountain Views From Inside A Tent Make Me So Jealous

Ukrainian-based photographer and mountain enthusiast Oleg Grigoryev took a picture of the view from his tent every morning of his trip to the Fann Mountains, Tajikistan. The resulting photographic reportage is beautiful — and it makes me terribly jealous.


Incredible Photo Of The Milky Way Rising Over Green And Violet Auroras

Briefly: A long exposure photo by masterful Swedish astrophotographer Göran Strand is featured once again on NASA’s Astronomy Picture of the Day: Double aurora ovals — green and violet — over the town of Östersund, Sweden, with the Milky Way covering the entire sky. What an awesome world we live in.


NASA Publishes Unprecedented X-Ray Image Of Supernova Remnant

Once again, the Universe amazes me with a never-before-seen display of colour and shapes that defies belief. You are looking at Puppis A, a supernova remnant that is 7000 light years away and is 10 light years across (!) And yet it looks like microscopic view of a coral here on Earth. Amazingly beautiful.
