WHAT HAVE YOU DONE
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.

Katniss Everdeen; Slytherin
“We Slytherins are brave, yes, but not stupid. For instance, given the choice, we will always choose to save our own necks.”
I agree completely. People seem to forget that there’s a very, very thin line between Gryffindor and Slytherin. And those who say that Katniss is a Gryffindor because she volunteered for Prim at the Reaping are obviously unaware that Slytherins are supposed to be fiercely protective and loyal to their own. Katniss went into the Games with the attitude that she would do anything to win. That determination is one hundred percent Slytherin.
^^ omg thank you.
