Giant Panda Family Rolls, Slides and Tumbles Around in Snow at National Zoo – NBC4 Washington

January 31, 2021

Hope the coming snow is as fun for humans here in CT as it was for Pandas in DC (@NationalZoo). Panda fur really seems to help for sliding around in the snow — even with a thick, padded jacket, I certainly can’t slide down hills on my back!

A Look at Some of the World’s Most Modern and Beautiful Chocolates

When we saw the photo of these amazing chocolates, the first thing we asked was, “Would anyone want to eat them?” How can you mess up something that looks so cool? These perfectly shaped mathematical wonders were made by Japanese company Nendo for the big Maison & Objet design show in Paris (that’s French for “House and Object”). The candies were made by pouring chocolate into a “mold,” a hollow shape cut so that when the candies cool down, they pop out looking like these. Suddenly a flat chocolate bar doesn’t seem as exciting as a spiky crown or checkerboard chunk — but in any shape, it all tastes good.

Sounds promising! By this spring

Monday night

December 21, 2020

For the past year, Jupiter and Saturn have been dancing ever closer in the night sky. On the evening of Dec. 21, the very nadir of winter, they will be so close — one-tenth of one angular degree — that if your eyes are as bad as mine, they will appear as one blurry, bright planet. With a little optical aid you should be able to discern them as separate orbs, almost kissing, although Jupiter will be 450 million miles in front of the ringed Saturn.

Go out and look southwest in the hour after sunset. According to astronomers, the two planets have not appeared this close to each other in the sky since 1623 — but the sun’s glare then would have rendered them invisible. To find a conjunction that humans could see, you must skip all the way back to 1226, or ahead to March 15, 2080. You might wonder who will be around to witness that event
“}} This Solstice, Solace for the Darkness
A rare conjunction of planets serves as a reminder that there is more to the universe than just ourselves.
