Things...and stuff

I'm Ollie. I'm 22 years old (though staunchly say and feel I'm 21). Stationary body with a wandering mind. Musician, lyricist, artist and other -ist things. This is a personal blog about me and things around me (which is every other blog ever). If you like it, that's fine. If you don't, you've already stopped reading and clicked on the next thing :D. This is just, existence I guess. I didn't really plan what I was gonna say. I'll come back and retype this when I've got something vaguely resembling some sort of fridge-magnet-philosophy that people seem to like.

“According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs, and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate beings condemning them to spend their lives in search for their other halves.”

~Plato’s The Symposium.

How many times will I reblog this? “Always.”

I will always reblog.

Throwing (star)shade: a super cool way to find new planets

Last week, NASA made a huge discovery: Kepler-186f  a planet the same size as Earth in the habitable zone of its star, meaning it might be able to harbor life.

Astronomer Jeremy Kasdin thinks we could find a lot more like it. See, astronomers like him believe that every star in the galaxy has at least one planet, and that up to ⅕ of those may be an Earth-like planet capable of housing life. The trouble is finding them. The thing is, it’s pretty tricky to photograph a far-away planet with a telescope, partly because  sorta like when you’re smiling for a family photo at the beach  a lot of light gets in the way, thanks to really bright stars like our sun.

Enter the starshade. Starshades are man-made screens that block a star’s light — think eclipse — allowing a telescope to see that star’s planets clearly. For Kasdin and his colleagues, this means developing a giant flower-shaped screen half the size of a football field that separates from a space telescope, flips and flies 50,000 km away to block the light of a star.

If this starshade really works — and so far a sample has worked in 16 trials — we could get direct images of planets beyond the solar system. And maybe, just maybe, we’ll finally find aliens.
