This Is Big: Scientists Just Found Earth’s First-Cousin

Right now, 500 light years away from Earth, there’s a planet that looks a lot like our own. It is bathed in dim orangeish light, which at high noon is only as bright as the golden hour before sunset back home. 
NASA scientists are calling the planet Kepler-186f, and it’s unlike anything they’ve found. The big news: Kepler-186f is the closest relative to the Earth that researchers have discovered. 
It’s the first Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of another star—the sweet spot between too-hot Mercury-like planets and too-cold Neptunes— and it is likely to give scientists their first real opportunity to seek life elsewhere in the universe. “It’s no longer in the realm of science fiction,” said Elisa Quintana, a researcher at the SETI Institute. 
But if there is indeed life on Kepler-186f, it may not look like what we have here. Given the redder wavelengths of light on the planet, vegetation there would sprout in hues of yellow and orange instead of green.

For more on this — a new starshade that could help us find many more Earth-like planets: 


Yup.

Yup.

When working on music I drink a lot of seltzer water.  It feels so natural.  Now I know why.

Bob Mankoff’s 10 favorite New Yorker cartoons, above

The New Yorker's cartoon editor, Bob Mankoff, receives over 1,000 submissions every week. So how does he select only 17 cartoons for each issue? His personal favorites, shown above, illustrate the ingredients for a classic New Yorker-style joke — realistic, reflexive, and a little dangerous.

Don’t get the last cartoon? Check out Mankoff’s talk for an amusing explanation, and more. Watch the full talk here »

Ha.
