Eat Your Tardigrades or You Don’t Get Dessert!
You know this little guy, right? It’s the mighty tardigrade, as featured in the new Cosmos. Tardigrades, also known as water bears, also known as FREAKIN’ MOSS PIGLETS, are microscopic eight-legged animals that can withstand temperatures from near absolute zero to boiling water, absorb extreme doses of radiation, go without food or water for ten years, and even survive the vacuum of space. They can even be completely dried out and ride on the wind to a new home, where they rehydrate and go about their tardibusiness. Tardigrade rain, folks.
In other words, they are BAMFs (bad-ass microfauna).
Oh, and you’ve probably eaten them. Thanks to Meg Lowman, I found out that these water-dwelling super-critters live not only on wild mosses and wet plants, but on grocery store produce like lettuce and spinach. Do you think that a mere rinse or shake under the faucet (or even cooking) is enough to dislodge a radiation-eating space pig? Ha! Not by a long shot, according to Lowman.
So yeah… trying to go strictly vegetarian? You’ve almost certainly eaten some tardigrades. Sorry. Don’t worry, though. They’re totally harmless. I like to imagine that when I eat them, I absorb their power, and become a little bit mightier.
New motto: For strength, eat your vegetables and eat your tardigrades.
Meg Lowman has more about your local tardigrade friends. Also check out Lowman’s awesome research project that helps wheelchair-bound students climb to the top of the forest canopy where they help study tardigrade biodiversity. Science is for everyone!

i love its stupid face

noot

did you know england sent them in to space and called it tardigrades in space and shortened it down to tardis

UPDATE: I just looked that last part up and yes, the European Space Agency did launch tardigrades into space to test their supposed invincibility as part of a mission called “Tardigrades In Space” that they did abbreviate as TARDIS.
Well played, Europe.
Read about that 2007 mission here and here.

Sam Loman’s “Underskin” Visualization By Randall Hand | VizWorld
See high-resolution version here.

You might have seen a great infographic popping up around the internet yesterday that showed the human body as a style of subway map (subway maps are becoming an increasingly popular metaphor for network visualization infographics). Most of the graphics were of disappointingly low resolution, but Sam has sent us an exclusive high-resolution copy of the graphic so that you can see all of the details and text. 
You can check out his her other fantastic work at his website just-sam.com.

Strike a match, light a rocket, and travel into the Golden Age of the Soviet space program with these vintage matchbox labels.

It’s important to remember that the USSR was first to most early milestones in space, and they celebrated their accomplishments with some amazing art. Some of that was in the form of classic Eastern bloc propaganda posters, and some was … matches, I guess.

Via an amazing Flickr gallery full of all subject matter of matchboxes, my favorites feature (from top) Laika the space dog, a couple commemorating the three-year anniversary of Sputnik 1, a trio celebrating the Luna 2 moon mission, and finally the museum/home of pioneering rocket scientist Konstantin Tsiolkovsky

Lots more vintage art, space-age and otherwise, here.
