NASA hosted a live audio conference today to reveal what could be the most exciting development of the decade in space news: the Kepler Space Telescope has discovered the most Earth-like planet known to date. Although there hasn’t been a report of little green men, Kepler-452b is being described as “the most Earth-like planet outside of Earth”—a rocky, similarly-sized planet where liquid water can exist, orbiting another star in the same way our earth orbits the sun.

These daisies, depicted in a photo posted to Twitter by @san_kaido, are just the latest to go viral and point to excessive radiation as the cause.

Juniper Ridge's Topanga Canyon wilderness perfume captures the California coast in full bloom

As summer hits its stride Juniper Ridge‘s experimental Field Lab is in full effect – and they recently released their latest limited-edition wildcrafted fragrance. Topanga Canyon is a light, herbaceous scent that captures the first days of spring on the California coastline. Juniper Ridge sent me a bottle and I’m impressed – compared to the dark and smokey redolence of Winter Redwood, it’s a vivacious and floral fragrance tempered with notes of sage and oak. Founder Hall Newbegin says “It’s Neil Young’s Cinnamon Girl on an old car radio and the hills exploding with sticky green life. We wanted to capture the transcendent, sunflare moment when the whole California coast is a wash of color and light.” If you’d like to capture the moment, act fast – Topanga Canyon is available in a limited run of 315 hand-numbered bottles, and once they’re gone they’re gone.
