THIS WEEK IN space we’re staying within our solar system. After all, there’s a lot to see! We’ll begin with our neighbor Mars and its moons Phobos and Deimos. Mars only has the two, and they’re very small—Phobos is only seven miles wide and Deimos, four miles. Several mission proposals have suggested we explore these moons before humans plant their boots onto the Martian soil; the moons are likely made of Mars-type stuff, and their low gravity would make it relatively easy to launch a return mission. Imagine an astronaut with a control pad while hanging out on Phobos, controlling a scientific rover on Mars—it might happen!

Humanity is the biggest religion
“Sometimes the Bible in the hand of one man is worse than a whisky bottle in the hand of (another)... There are just some kind of men who - who're so busy worrying about the next world they've never learned to live in this one, and you can look down the street and see the results.”
― Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird

Bitten by a fairy?

Fly agaric (Amanita muscaria)

Svartskog, Norway

This otherwise perfect specimen has lost a chunk that will never be repaired and makes this mushroom look rather mutilated. Yet this is more the norm than not, which makes finding a perfect specimen difficult and requiring on a lot of luck.

This is from a ravenous slug having had a feast in the dark of night, which makes this frustrating as during the day they are nowhere to be seen and you can locate a beautiful specimen only to find it completely demolished the next morning.

Thus, as with life as a whole, never postpone. Never wait for a tomorrow, as now is when you have all the opportunities in the world to harvest what is available.

That said, I do find this artistic and beautiful as it is a beautifully carved bite and often a mushroom is crisscrossed with holes like a Swiss cheese and looking like a complete mess. This one is for a brief moment a piece of art.

This was shot in the very last minutes of daylight and I assume the slugs were already on their way to gnawing off another piece of the mushroom, making it much less of art and more of a disaster.
