Ramblings of a Fangirl

Can you imagine though I’d be like I found Narnia but it’s smaller and duller than expected

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.

Lendrum Castle - the dentist's office is in the basement, the castle itself is used as a living room.

Really? That’s so cool. I hadn’t even heard of it til the other day. Awesome!

This is what happens when the convenience store doesn’t sell brown sugar but they do have brown sugar packets for coffee.

Okay, coolest thing ever. They literally built a castle on top of a one storey house. It even has stained glass windows and suits of armour. And guess what? It’s a dentists office.

Lady, where is this?? I need to find it!

Edmonton!
