The Fukang Pallasite. Pallasites are a type of iron meteorite, quite rare, made out of large olivine crystals in an iron-nickel matrix. Olivine is a a magnesium iron silicate quite common in our planet’s subsurface, but which weathers fast when exposed to the surface. An anonymous finder recovered a 1003 kg specimen near Fukang, China in 2000. These extra-terrestrial gemstones mirror the stellar beauty of the cosmos. The Fukang Pallasite is a specimen that clearly out shines all meteorites of its class. See more photos here.
i love this fukang pallasite
This has always been SO COOL ae;rlkj
god i love the detail that went into this show jkshdfjkshfs
yesss fantastic gifset
seriously, i don’t understand how anyone could dislike this show
the creators are so happy and in love with it and that just rubs off on the fans and makes this show really special u__u
I was honestly really skeptical FOR THE LONGEST TIME AND I DIDNT GIVE IT A CHANCE OR EVEN A SECOND GLANCE. But then I actually watched it. Although there were some things that they threw in I didn’t care for but I understand that because it is meant for a younger audience it was needed. I really feel like the romance and drama did not belong for the most part.
but there is so much more to this show :> It’s great.
ZUKO. ZUKO STOP THAT. RIGHT NOW.
More gorgeous “shrimp” for your day: The Mantis Shrimp
Despite their name, the mantis shrimps are neither shrimp nor mantises, but receive their name purely from the physical resemblance to both the praying mantis and the shrimp. These creatures are sometimes referred to as “thumb splitters” because their claws are strong enough to split human appendages. These highly intelligent creatures are often monogamous and they get to know and regularly interact with their neighbors. The mantis shrimp also has the best eyesight in the animal world with 16 different photoreceptor types (compared to four in humans). But – what really makes these creatures badass is their ability to break out of aquariums by smashing the glass with their claws. It has a punch stronger than a .22 calibre pistol.
