Hey, if you have a book (or DVDs) by Carl Sagan, please take a look at this! I need your help!

I started to put the mosaic together, but I just don’t have enough images to complete it. I can say that even when it’s half done, it looks really cool! I feel so humble to put this together :)

I need 27 more images!

A few months before he died, Carl Sagan recorded a moving message which he dedicated to future explorers and settlers of Mars. 7 years later, the first succesful landing of a long-term rover to the red planet’s surface was achieved. In 2012, the Curiosity rover (its self-portrait on the image) landed on Mars and is still going.

This is too important for me not to mention.
This “Christian” child-rearing manual has led to at least three known deaths through child-abuse.
The book states: "Give 10 licks at a time, more if the child resists. Be careful about using it in front of others — even at church; nosy neighbors might call social workers."
This is literally a how-to manual on how to abuse and beat your children.
Sign this petition to have Amazon stop selling this hideous thing.

Introverts, in contrast, may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They tend to dislike conflict. Many have a horror of small talk, but enjoy deep discussions.

When a star meets a black hole.

Supermassive black holes lurk at the centre of almost every galaxy, weighing billions of times more than our Sun - and Nasa has just caught sight of one ‘feeding’ on a star. A re giant star that wandered too close to the centre of a galaxy 2.7 billion light years away was pulled in by the enormous gravity of the black hole - and shredded.

We seldom stop to think that we are still creatures of the sea, able to leave it only because, from birth to death, we wear the water-filled space suits of our skins.
