Mr Thomas Campbell, straight out of Santa Cruz, has an exhibition up at Half Gallery on the Lower East Side of Manhattan at the moment, and we wish we were there to see it. At least The Standard of the East Village has this video.
You know what will always win? The Simpsons. Even if we haven’t watched the show in a half decade, you throw a Homer, Bart, or Duff reference around, and we will gravitate towards it. That is why this Santa Cruz x The Simpsons release of cruiser boards (although we would never buy them), got our attention. And that classic Santa Cruz logo looks good as well…
This is what you remind us of. Seriously, you are 35, you can smoke weed whenever you want, don’t tell us how excited you are for 4/20. You aren’t a freshman at UC Santa Cruz on a beautiful Spring day smoking weed outside your first philosophy class.
This is when you know you have a bunch of nerds deciding galaxy names. There is something called “Goldilocks zone” of space. And a new planet in, Gliese 581g, in ‘Goldilocks zone’ of space where “liquid water could exist is strong contender for a habitable world.” Only 20 light years away!
Actually, this is pretty damn cool. And why is it cool? UC Santa Cruz is a lead source on what to make of the find. “Our findings offer a very compelling case for a potentially habitable planet,” said Steven Vogt, an astronomer at the University of California, Santa Cruz. “The fact that we were able to detect this planet so quickly and so nearby tells us that planets like this must be really common.”
