ok what space stuff do i wanna post for space week first
dont really wanna use the hashtag 'cause i aesthetically dislike hashtags
was reading the little prince yesterday and this illustration reminded me of freeman dyson's idea of planting trees on comets (i have mentioned this before)
anyway my headcanon now is that de Saint-Exupéry was wrong, the prince did not live on Asteroid B-612, but on a comet
planted with genetically engineered space trees that can live on the faint sunlight in the Oort cloud, tolerate hard vacuum, and convert the water and carbon of the comet into plant stuff and oxygen
except as always things went wrong and some of the genetically engineered species got a little too rowdy, hence the problem of the baobabs

do not genetically engineer baobabs they are already Too Big
anyways my answer to this is, in a tree house, on a comet, with space tomatoes and space cats and a space canoe

also read this pls
quite possibly this single book matches my vibe more than any other piece of writing in the world
just wanna be a space gardener or alternately a space mountain man is that too much to ask
said anyway twice in the same thread kill me
ok i'll put the hashtag here, just once

i mean
george dyson needs to get on twitter
this image of kids playing in an enormous gigakayak has basically never left my mind since i first read this book, like, 20 years ago
