theres a giant burning orb in the sky and it can burn your flesh, it can give you diseases, it can kill you, looking directly at it causes physical pain, and we all think this is okay. we like this orb.  we like to go outside and lie around on our backs when this orb is in the sky. children draw cute pictures of this levitating death orb with a smiley face on it. what is wrong with us

This is some Night Vale level shit.

FACT OF THE DAY:  these images of this recently discovered planet come to us from the New Vistas space probe.  Launched in 1977, New Vistas’ goal was to exit the solar system and look for potentially livable planets in neighboring star systems.  For 35 years, New Vistas was unsuccessful; a clash with an asteroid in the Kuiper Belt sent it drastically off-course.  However, this turned out to be a blessing in disguise.  On February 27th of this year, New Vistas came across a large planetary body, about 1.5x the size of Earth.  Scientists are optimistic that this new planet can indeed sustain life.  Two new probes have been launched and are expected to reach the newly discovered planet in 2030.

Universe Quotes
Via: Ser, I mean, my lady
"There is a fundamental reason why we look at the sky with wonder and longing—for the same reason that we stand, hour after hour, gazing at the distant swell of the open ocean. There is something like an ancient wisdom, encoded and tucked away in our DNA, that knows its point of origin as surely as a salmon knows its creek. Intellectually, we may not want to return there, but the genes know, and long for their origins—their home in the salty depths. But if the seas are our immediate source, the penultimate source is certainly the heavens… The spectacular truth is—and this is something that your DNA has known all along—the very atoms of your body—the iron, calcium, phosphorus, carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and on and on—were initially forged in long-dead stars. This is why, when you stand outside under a moonless, country sky, you feel some ineffable tugging at your innards. We are star stuff. Keep looking up."

All alone.

Hundreds of thousands of miles from anyone or anything.
