I want this thing more than life itself
In 2012, a group of friends in Joensuu, Finland built a not-so-ordinary raft. The eclectic-looking boat has some unexpected amenities, one of which is a fully-functional sauna. It’s the product of a DIY project that’s known in Finnish as a Saunalautta, and it is an ingenious way to spend a day on the water.
Sharks Ledge Reef
Omg, this is so beautiful.
Artistic microscope slides produced in the Victorian era (1840~1900) by arranging hundreds of tiny diatoms into intricate patterns. This was often accomplished by using a single hair to move the diatoms in a special chamber that prevented disturbance to the slide. The fabrication of these amazing objects must have required incredible patience, attention to detail, and a steady hand.
Sapphirina copepod, a.k.a. "sea sapphire" is a tiny shrimp like crustacean that makes up the bottom of the food chain. The microscopic layers of crystal plates inside their cells catch light and reflect back different hues, from bright gold to deep blue that resembles like a gem.
When they’re abundant near the water’s surface the sea shimmers like diamonds falling from the sky. Japanese name this kind of water, “tama-mizu”, jeweled water. Combine this nifty trick with the sea sapphire’s impressively transparent body, and you have an animal as radiant as a star in one moment, and invisible in the next.
