I'm a fangirl, a college student, and a writer. Thanks to the Internet, at least 70% of my thoughts now emerge in the form of memes. And pandas. If I post something that makes no sense, it's probably RP related.
In the 1970 NASA envisioned possibilities to colonize space: building giant spaceships, orbiting around the sun. The image shows a diorama scene from the Haus der Natur, in Salzburg.

Even in space we insisted on questionable urban planing ideas.
NASA is planning to grow basil, turnips and Arabidopsis on the Moon. The experiment, which will commence in 2015, will test whether plants can thrive in partial gravity and in a controlled environment. If the experiment succeeds, setting aluminium greenhouses on the Moon could soon be a reality(via Science Alert/fb)
