Fibonacci you crazy bastard….

As seen in the solar system (by no ridiculous coincidence), Earth orbits the Sun 8 times in the same period that Venus orbits the Sun 13 times! Drawing a line between Earth & Venus every week results in a spectacular FIVE side symmetry!!

Lets bring up those Fibonacci numbers again: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34..

So if we imagine planets with Fibonacci orbits, do they create Fibonacci symmetries?!

You bet!! Depicted here is a:

  • 2 sided symmetry (5 orbits x 3 orbits)
  • 3 sided symmetry (8 orbits x 5 orbits)
  • sided symmetry (13 orbits x 8 orbits) - like Earth & Venus
  • sided symmetry (21 orbits x 13 orbits)

I wonder if relationships like this exist somewhere in the universe….

Pioneering astronomer Vera Rubin, who confirmed the existence of dark matter, is 86 today – celebrate with her fantastic 1996 Berkeley commencement address on science and stereotypes.

Her entire address is very well thought-out, I encourage you to read the linked article. Thanks for sharing, explore-blog.

Once again, someone has posted this bad crop of MY photo without sourcing me. Once again, while my Flickr page has very few views and almost no comments, some kid is getting thousands of notes on stolen pictures. Why is it so hard for people to add the extra link?? Seriously - you don’t lose a thing by adding a link to the original artist.
I have a reblogging policy: I will only reblog or like material that is properly sourced. I won’t follow anyone who is guilty of posting photos from WeHeartIt, or who posts pictures without credit. And if I realize someone I follow has been reblogging a lot of stolen material very consistently, I will unfollow that person. I am just a hobbyist when it comes to photography, but many pieces of stolen art and photographs are originally from professionals trying to earn a living through their crafts. Since Tumblrs ‘profit’ in views and favorites (and sometimes donations), it’s only fair to ‘pay’ the original artists by linking to their portfolios.
These are flowers that my boyfriend gave me on our first anniversary. We are just about to celebrate anniversary number 5. (:
