NeSpoon calls her artistic approach the “jewellery of the public space”: Jewellery makes people look pretty, my public jewellery has the same goal, make public places look better. NeSpoon often uses the usual spray paint and stencils of enlarged lace patterns to produce her works on the street vi...

jtotheizzoe: The Far Future of the Universe It’s natural to wonder what the future has in store for us. While we may not be able to predict what will happen to us tomorrow, science has made some pretty strong predictions about what will happen to the universe in the eons to come. From the rearrangement of the constellations and meteorite impacts to the evaporation of our oceans and the stars themselves going out, there’s a lot of stuff to (not) look forward to. Sure, the universe might not have...

Starbursts in the wake of a fleeting romance This image shows galaxy NGC 4485 in the constellation of Canes Venatici (The Hunting Dogs). The galaxy is irregular in shape, but it hasn’t always been so. Part of NGC 4485 has been dragged towards a second galaxy, named NGC 4490 — which lies out of frame to the bottom right of this image. Between them, these two galaxies make up a galaxy pair called Arp 269. Their interactions have warped them both, turning them from spiral galaxies into irregular o...
