Tatooine? No, it's Kepler-16b. The existence of a world with a double sunset, as portrayed in the film Star Wars more than 30 years ago, is now scientific fact. Our Kepler mission has made the first unambiguous detection of a circumbinary planet - a planet orbiting two stars - 200 light-years from Earth.

Unlike Star Wars' Tatooine, the planet is cold, gaseous and not thought to harbor life, but its discovery demonstrates the diversity of planets in our galaxy. Previous research has hinted at the existence of circumbinary planets, but clear confirmation proved elusive. Kepler detected such a planet by observing transits, where the brightness of a parent star dims from the planet crossing in front of it.

All done. But I'm not convinced it will even fit by next winter - tried it on the munchkin and it already fits. Might end up having to knit another later in the fall.

Ugly socks are ugly. But they're done and that's 277 yards out of the yarn stash.

This might be a bit better if I had white instead of grey, but it works.

+Karen Fenlason​ it's actually a darker green but my cell phone photo quality sucks. I've got it all finished up, though, so I'll post a better picture of it tomorrow. :)

"Only 21% recognised the site as unrealiable because of a commercial bias. Fully 48% of the students thought the site was a reliable source for investigating health effects of energy drinks. The remainder were equally divided between those who identified the site as unreliable but couldn’t figure out why, and those who identified it as unreliable but had a reason other than commercial bias."

And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off... -Tyler D.

"Praising Graham distracts from a hard truth: It doesn’t matter how black children behave – whether they throw rocks at the police, burn a CVS, join gangs, walk home from the store with candy in their pocket, listen to rap music in a car with friends, play with a toy gun in a park, or simply make eye contact with a police officer – they risk being killed and blamed for their own deaths because black youths are rarely viewed as innocent or worthy of protection"

+Vita Haake Porobil If they're about to run across the street, I'd recommend a body block. ^_-

But I'm guessing it's "OK" here because the kid's minority (thus animal).

What we have here is a little boy who woke up too damn early, stayed awake through our grocery trip, and is so exhausted that he fell asleep in the car and then barely woke up to get out of the car and into the house and is now passed out HARD in my lap.

I'd explain to him that this is why he should have slept in but I don't think he'd understand.

I got my feet on the ground and I don't go to sleep to dream
Introduction
I'm a web designer/business owner growing to hate technology, knitter, gamer, sci-fi nerd, tree hugger, and a bit shy with a side of opinionated. I garden and like to can and pretend I'm being self-sufficient, but the truth is I suck at it. A lot. Like, I'd probably starve and die if I had to actually do any of this to really survive.

I play with photography on a Canon PowerShot A560 and the husband's Canon 20D.

Mom to an awesome little creature whose middle name is, in fact, Danger. 

I ride a beat-up 1996 Rebel 250. She had some dings in her when I got to her, and I've put a few more in, but we've had a good time together. I've upgraded to a beautiful blue/cream Triumph America (which I call my TARDIS - you'll get it if you're a Doctor Who fan) but it's still early in our relationship and I'm still learning how to handle her. She won't take me through space and time, but we'll hopefully cover a lot of miles together :)

If I had a million dollars I'd buy a farm and live off the land.
