9 Unique Designs Born In The USSR – Mental Floss
This week while chipping away at an upcoming HODINKEE article project (stay tuned!) I had the advantage of investing some energy with smash hit writer and companion of the site, Gary Shtyngart. At a certain point, Gary (who was brought into the world in the USSR) clarified how Russian customer products from his childhood educated his plan tastes, and realizing little to nothing about Soviet plan culture, I got myself this primer.

A NASA Photographer Caught The Perfect SpaceX Launch Shot. At that point His Camera Melted. – Quartz
I scorn focal point covers. Simply request any from my partners. Toss a channel on there for assurance and you’re all set. But, obviously, when this occurs – evidently NASA photographic artist Bill Ingalls was capturing the SpaceX Falcon 9 dispatch this week and this person here became involved with a little wildfire touched off by the dispatch. This is the stuff of nightmares.

The Weird, Dangerous, Isolated Life of The Saturation Diver – Atlas Obscura
Step into the firmly stuffed and hazardous universe of an immersion diver. This top to bottom gander at a misconstrued and on-the-periphery calling follows a progression of divers as they fix oil frameworks at incredible profundities. From weeks constrained to work in totally dark conditions, and the consistently present dread of a fast depressurization, on the off chance that you’ve at any point pondered who very that helium get away from valve on your fake watch prices – dive in.

In Defense Of Maximalism – Elle Decor
Recently I have become fixated on insides. And keeping in mind that I used to slant towards white dividers and mid-century furniture, recently I have completely accepted the tasteful of an early English house. More customary, more flower, more more. I thought I was distant from everyone else in my preferences until I went over this article commending Maximialism, featuring the most amazing aspects of the once passé style. Be as yet my WASPy heart.

Planet Or Plastic? – National Geographic
I mean, have you seen a more splendid magazine cover than this? I didn’t think so. This is Nat Geo doing what it specializes in, combining a feeling of miracle with sharp worldwide answering to get perusers feeling enthusiastically about something significant. In case you’re not mindful of the harm plastic is doing to the planet at this moment, hurry to the nearest news stand and get the issue ASAP.
