Welcome to the Hearth of the Sun

Life on Earth could not exist without the gigantic nuclear power station of the sun. If it “turned off”, the life on our planet would end. Solarium, a video installation by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), puts visitors in the hearth of the sun, surrounded by dynamic visuals of the giant star’s turbulent gas atmosphere exploding and erupting.

In the last five years SDO has been watching the sun, taking one picture a second and collecting data. The imagery was then paired with audio created at Stanford University in California, with the end result being a truly immersive setting.

The installation permits the viewer to plunge directly in the sun and to closely enjoy an artificial but nonetheless magnificent indoor sun. Luckily, the real sun is expected to remain on for the next few billion years.

100% Organic? Get a Coconut

Numerous products nowadays present themselves as organic. Such labeling suggests these products are created according to the principles and in harmony with nature, yet, it is hardly ever defined what this exactly means.

This pure organic coconut water is a striking example. 100% pure organic coconut water would be to drink directly from the coconut. So how organic is this product really? 80% Organic? 70% Organic? Or just slightly more organic than the coconut water without the labeling?

Moonwalk Nike

Nature is the most successful marketing tool of our time and Nike knows it!
To celebrate the 45th anniversary of Neil Armstrong walking on the moon, on July 20, 1969, the sport brand has made a special pair of Air Max Lunar90. The lunar surface pattern of the shoes makes it look they are are made from moon rock.

If you’d like to feel like walking on the moon, you can buy the Lunar90 SP from today at Bodega for $145.00 USD. Since most of us might never take a step up there, this might be the closest we’ll ever get!
