Space doesn’t belong to any one person or group of people. It belongs to all people.– Leave your racism, your sexism, your religious fundamentalism, your homophobia, your xenophobia, and all of your other harmful negative attitudes on the launch pad. While we work to improve relations on our world, travel through the universe will be an experience equally available to all peoples.
I used to be angry at those who would look at the stars and say, “We must keep this away from (insert group of people here)”. But now, I merely pity them. I pity that they don’t how beautiful it could all be. A future where our Earthly divisions mean nothing. A future where people explore and create, and the collective efforts of all people make all of our greatest dreams possible.
Space travel is inevitable for us. It is in our nature to explore. But whether it be the first colony or the five-hundredth, please let my words reach as far as the stars.

I’m just so emotionally attached to a lot of the people I follow. Like, I might not even talk to you, but I’ll see your little icon and url pop up on my dash and I’ll just stare at it and smile and be like: friend.
Like all living things, humans are bioluminescent (meaning we glow) – We glow brightest during the afternoon. - weird, interesting & funny facts
i’ve been staring at this for like 5 minutes. so.. what. i don’t think people glow. but this is telling me that we actually emit visible light.. especially in the afternoon?? am i reading this right or what
"all living things" plants. when do the plants glow
science side of tumblr pls
I’m not from the science side of tumblr, but here’s the answer anyways:
Basically, all living things are bioluminescent because every living thing has chemical reactions occurring in their cells. The energy created from these chemical reactions physically manifests as light, thus… all living things naturally glow.
However, this glow cannot be seen by the human eye. In fact, the only way they’ve ever captured this light is through special cameras. Using these ultra special cameras, they’ve imaged subjects’ bodies over 24 hour periods. It has been found out that humans emit the most of this glow during the afternoon (about 4 PM), it is the weakest in the morning (about 10 AM), and the brightest light is emitted from the cheeks, neck, and forehead.
The light is about a thousand times weaker than what humans can perceive.
Basically, it’s a side effect of metabolic reactions. It’s been suspected that humans are bioluminescent for years, but they weren’t able to confirm it until recently thanks to technology and a man named Masaki Kobayashi from the Tohoku Institute of Technology.

Me: *heals self*
Enemy: *heals self*
Me: Whoa. Whoa.
Me: What do you think you're doing?
Me: I just took off half your health bar, and then you go and do that?
Me: Yeah, I KNOW I just healed myself.
Me: It's different when I do it.
Reading fanfiction is the worst because you start out with “I’ll just read this cute one shot” then suddenly it’s four am and you have 12 tabs open and you’re crying again because THEY DESERVE TO BE HAPPY WHY CANT THEY JUST BE HAPPY
