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.

I like to take personality tests from time to time because my results are almost always different from the last time I took one, even if only slightly.

Pretty sure my alignment test came back as Neutral Good because there were so many questions about treatment of animals that it cancelled out a lot of my otherwise avoidant behavior, though. Fuck the guy crying in the grocery store, but I’ll climb a tree for a stuck cat any day.

I haven’t posted much about my garden because of all the family drama that’s been going on lately, but I’m greatly enjoying it. I started a lot of my seedlings in a communal container and have been transplanting them out as they get too large for their spaces. I have two tomato plants (one for big sandwich tomatoes, the other romas for cooking), nine broccoli plants, a zucchini plant, sweet peppers, cilantro, rosemary, sweet basil, spicy basil, and oregano.

The zucchini needs to be transplanted soon. Weather permitting, I’ll probably swap it out into its own container tomorrow. I’m also greatly considering putting my rosemary in the ground and letting it grow huge. The smell is wonderful and I can dry all that I don’t use fresh. We’ll see.

I’ll take pictures soon, once I get everything into its final container, or thereabouts. This year is very much an experiment and I’m hoping to set aside some yard space to do my veggies properly in the ground next year. I’m eyeing a nice patch in the back yard that gets full sun in the summer. The fence will keep out the rabbits, though I’ll have to put something waist-high around it anyway because dogs.
