Measuring a mere 40 square meters, the four-storey windowless house features a glass roof and glass floors on every level, allowing its occupants an unobstructed view from the basement all the way to the sky.
It is certainly a bold and interesting concept–imagine looking up to see someone using the toilet or taking a shower. Would you like to live in such a house, or are the transparent glass floors too open for comfort?
Carl Sagan guided the maiden voyage of Cosmos a generation ago. He was the most successful science communicator of the 20th century, but he was first and foremost a scientist. Carl contributed enormously to our knowledge of the planets. He correctly predicted the existence of methane lakes on Saturn’s giant moon Titan. He showed that the atmosphere of the early Earth must have contained powerful greenhouse gasses. He was the first to understand that seasonal changes on Mars were due to wind-blown dust. Carl was a pioneer in the search for extraterrestrial life and intelligence. He played a leading role in every major spacecraft mission to explore the solar system during the first 40 years of the space age.
Raise your hand if you think the best part of the new Cosmos were the amazing shots of Carl Sagan’s life and work.
I love you Neil, but so many Carl feels.
We all love someone way too fucking much.
You may know my name, but you don’t know my pain
I can’t stand the light, I’m from the dark side
I may look the same, but I ain’t playing games
I can’t die, ‘cause the music is my life
This is my life, my life, my life
And I will live it ‘til the night is fucking done
