This Is Big: Scientists Just Found Earth’s First-Cousin

Right now, 500 light years away from Earth, there’s a planet that looks a lot like our own. It is bathed in dim orangeish light, which at high noon is only as bright as the golden hour before sunset back home. 
NASA scientists are calling the planet Kepler-186f, and it’s unlike anything they’ve found. The big news: Kepler-186f is the closest relative to the Earth that researchers have discovered. 
It’s the first Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of another star—the sweet spot between too-hot Mercury-like planets and too-cold Neptunes— and it is likely to give scientists their first real opportunity to seek life elsewhere in the universe. “It’s no longer in the realm of science fiction,” said Elisa Quintana, a researcher at the SETI Institute. 
But if there is indeed life on Kepler-186f, it may not look like what we have here. Given the redder wavelengths of light on the planet, vegetation there would sprout in hues of yellow and orange instead of green.

Please stop and read this.

I’m doing a project on gay rights in today’s society.

So if you believe that same sex couples should be allowed to get married, please reblog this.

This would be a lot of help, thank you.

Sarcastic Rebel White Boy goes on a Deep Space adventure with his Exotic Asian Girlfriend to prove that he’s better than his Deadbeat Dad and save the human race or something, starring Matt Damon

Yeah…And the icing on the cake is that the initial pitch was the ‘novelty’ of the idea of a hetrosexual white male being portrayed like a social minority. IN SPACE!

Okay, in all seriousness, I actually remember seeing this when it first came out in 2000 and loving it. It then faded from my memory for a near decade untill I found it completely by accident again, and I still enjoyed it. Or rather I enjoyed what it potentially could or, dare I say it, can be.

The movie has its fair share of problems; pacing, poor or untold motivation of the side cast, dated looks, plot holes and inconsistencies and the context I pointed out earlier is pretty glaring (and uncomfortable) in 2014. But… I am just really taken with the interlectual property, that idea of a universe with a shattered Humanity barelly scraping by, of it being subject to callous Alien Species older than even our perception of time, Of people lossing their way - to finally finding it in the end.

I am also just a sucker for a sci-fi universe that could be a bit different from the big established ones today and it breaks my heart a little that Titan A.E. never had a chance to be one. But… there’s always hope for a reboot, I supose. And with that they could adress the problems the original had and make something even stronger and much more inclusive to all kinds of fans and people.

Imagine a series, a sprawling saga that fully fleshes out the universe the movie just touched on. Now imagine that show having a diverse (maybe even POC majority, thinking Pacific Rim perhaps) and intricate cast with all the time it needs to flesh out the characters and setting. Reinforced with todays effects and technical knowhow and going after the collage age demograph in terms of depth, scope and content matter. Animated of course.

Man, it could be the Farscape of 2014.

…Yeah, I am just dreaming. But its a nice one at least.
