Like 5 a day? Want daily reminders?



 

 Today is Earth Day, the internationally designated time to pay extra-special attention to human impact on Earth’s ecology. But in addition to your Earth Day observances, why not join NASA scientists this year in celebrating Sun-Earth Day, an astronomically educational holiday designed to recognize special moments between Earth and our Sun?

Past Sun-Earth Days have celebrated everything from Sun watching in culture (like ancient Egyptian pillars to the sun god Re and the Wijiji Great House in Chaco Canyon, New Mexico), space weather, magnetic storms, and eclipses. In accordance with NASA’s annual declaration, Sun-Earth Day falls on a different day every year, coincident with some special solar event between the spring equinox and summer solstice.

 This the Bandra Ohm, a 30-story skyscraper designed by James Law Cybertecture to be built in India. Each residential unit features a glass-walled pool for a balcony. Don't want a pool? Turn it into a turtle pond!

 Submitted by member AndyPiper, the question is - how do you even figure out your dog can do this?!

So which one was your favourite? Personally mine was the giant Turtle Ponds - turtles are adorable!

 

Til tomorrow!

>Not sure i'd feel safe in one of those pools.< Don't think I would! Not good if you are afraid of heights ;)

The teenage mutant ones freaked me out so turtles are only good for soup. As for using it as a pool it just looks wrong.
