Designers are beginning to go “open source”, allowing users to download tweakable templates for everyday objects like furniture. It is possible to download free item designs, get them cut at a local shop, and assemble them at home thanks to companies like AtFab, SketchChair and MakeMe http://econ.st/YxoSOJ

Earth's Location in the Universe

Earth → Solar System → Solar Interstellar Neightborhood → Milky Way Galaxy → Local Galactic Group → Virgo Supercluster → Observable Universe → Universe → Unknown (our Universe might be a part of Multiverse)


Earth - 12,700 km in diameter - Our planet

Geospace - 63,000 km Sunward side; - 6,300,000 km trailing side - The space dominated by Earth's magnetic field

Orbit of the Moon - 770,000 km across - The average diameter of the orbit of the +Moon relative to the Earth

Earth's Orbit - 300 million km across (2 AU) - The average diameter of the orbit of the Earth relative to the +Sun. Contains the Sun, Mercury and Venus

Inner Solar System - 6 AU across - Contains the Sun, the inner planets (+Mercury, +Venus, Earth and +Mars) and the asteroid belt

Outer Solar System - 60 AU across - Surrounds the inner Solar System; comprises the outer planets (+Jupiter, +Saturn, +Uranus and +Neptune)

Kuiper Belt - 96 AU across - Belt of icy objects surrounding the outer solar system. Contains the dwarf planets +Pluto, +Haumea and +Makemake

Heliosphere - 160 AU across - Maximum extent of the Solar wind and the interplanetary medium

Scattered Disk - 200 AU across - Region of sparsely scattered icy objects surrounding the Kuiper belt. Contains the dwarf planet +Eris

Oort Cloud - 100,000–200,000 AU across (2–4 light-years) - Spherical shell of over a trillion comets

Solar System - 4 light-years across - Our home planetary system. At this point, the Sun's gravity gives way to that of surrounding stars

Local Interstellar Cloud - 30 light-years across - Interstellar cloud of gas through which the Sun and a number of other stars are currently travelling

Local Bubble - 210–815 light-years across - Cavity in the interstellar medium in which our Sun and a number of other stars are currently travelling. Caused by a past supernova

Gould Belt - 3,000 light-years across - Ring of young stars through which our Sun is currently travelling

Orion Arm - 10,000 light-years in length - The spiral arm of the +Milky Way Galaxy through which our Sun is currently travelling

Orbit of the Solar System - 56,000 light years across - The average diameter of the orbit of the +Saturn relative to the Galactic Center. Our Sun's orbital radius is roughly 28,000 light years, or slightly over half way to the galactic edge. One orbital period of our Solar System lasts between 225 and 250 million years

Milky Way Galaxy - 100,000 light-years across - Our home galaxy, composed of 200 billion to 400 billion stars and filled with the interstellar medium

Milky Way Subgroup - 2.74 million light-years across (0.84 megaparsecs) - The Milky Way and those satellite galaxies gravitationally bound to it, such as the Sagittarius Dwarf, the Ursa Minor Dwarf and the Canis Major Dwarf. Cited distance is the orbital diameter of the Leo T Dwarf galaxy, the most distant galaxy in the Milky Way subgroup

Local Group - 3 megaparsecs across - Group of at least 47 galaxies. Dominated by +Andromeda Galaxy (the largest), The Milky Way and Triangulum; the remainder are small dwarf galaxies

Virgo Supercluster - 33 megaparsecs across - The supercluster of which our Local Group is a part; comprises roughly 100 galaxy groups and clusters

Pisces-Cetus Supercluster Complex - 300 megaparsecs across - The galaxy filament of which the Virgo Supercluster is a part

Observable Universe - 28,000 megaparsecs across - The large-scale structure of the +Universe consists of more than 100 billion galaxies, arranged in millions of superclusters, galactic filaments, and voids, creating a foam-like superstructure

Universe - Minimum of 28,000 megaparsecs - Beyond the observable Universe lies the unobservable regions where no light from those regions has reached the Earth yet. No information is available about the region, as light is the fastest travelling medium of information. However, since there is no reason to suppose different natural laws, the universe is likely to contain more galaxies in the same foam-like superstructure

Beyond - Size Unknown - Our universe might be a part of multiverse, omniverse, and/or other hypothetical concepts


Explanation of units:

1 AU or Astronomical Unit is the distance between the Earth and the Sun, or 150 million km. Earth's orbital diameter is twice its orbital radius, or 2 AU

One light-year is the distance light travels in a year; equivalent to 9.46 trillion km or 63,200 AU

A parsec is 3.26 light-years

One megaparsec is equivalent to one million parsecs or 3.26 million light-year

Heaven's Gate Mountain. Zhangjiajie City, China
The elevation of Tianmen Mountains is 1518.6 meters (the highest one in Zhangjiajie); people may feel amazing that about 40 peaks inside the mountain area are over 1000 meters. Due to the high elevation of the mountain, the day time is longer than the night hours and the temperature on the mountains is about 10 degree centigrade lower than the Zhangjiajie city, the sunrise on the mountain is 30 minutes earlier and the sunset is 45 minutes later than it is in the city areas. Thus it is known as an endless sky without darkness. 

The mountain is famous for its unique natural miracle - the Tianmen Cave; it was authorized as a national forest park in July, 1992. The door-alike cave was created after the cliff collapsing in ancient time. Tianmen Mountains is rich in Chinese culture; it is regarded as the Top 1 Heaven Mountain in the west part of Hunan province and the sprit of Wuling (an old name of the county here). This place has absorbed the essence from the nature for thousands years, therefore visiting the holy temple on the mountain – Tianmenshan Temple has become a popular way to pray for a safe and healthy life.

Upgrading to Husband 1.0

Dear Tech Support:
Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed that the new program began making unexpected changes to the accounting modules, limiting access to flower and jewellery applications that had operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0. In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as Romance 9.9 but installed undesirable programs such as NFL 5.0 and NBA 3.0. Conversation 8.0 no longer runs and HouseCleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system. I've tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail.
--Desperate***

Dear Desperate, 
Keep in mind, Boyfriend 5.0 is an entertainment package, while Husband 1.0 is an operating system. Try to enter the command: C:/ I THOUGHT YOU LOVED ME and install Tears 6.2. Husband 1.0 should then automatically run the applications: Guilty 3.0 and Flowers 7.0. But remember, overuse can cause Husband 1.0 to default to GrumpySilence 2.5, Happyhour 7.0 or Beer 6.1. Beer 6.1 is a very bad program that will create "Snoring Loudly" wave files. DO NOT install MotherInLaw 1.0 or reinstall another Boyfriend program. These are not supported applications and will crash Husband 1.0

In summary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited memory and cannot learn new applications quickly. Consider buying additional software to improve performance. I personally recommend HotFood 3.0 and Lingerie 5.3.

Good Luck! Tech Support

Air-powered urban commuter car by TATA motors
The 'airpod' seats three passengers, using compressed air rather than traditional fuel for a zero-emissions ride.
