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.

So my German teacher told us this story once

skeletons-keys:

the-ugliest-duckling:

He was in Germany, sitting outside, observing an American family with two young children who did not speak German. This one drunk man, who is totally hammered and can hardly walk happens to stand nearby and start peeing on the wall. The little girl, disgusted, says, “Gross!” To which the man replies, “Danke,” (German for ‘thank you’). In German, the word ‘gross’ means ‘big’.
