The Beautiful Cosmos: Aurora borealis from space

This is an amazing picture taken by the good folk at the International Space Station (ISS) earlier in February. Moving at such a great speed, the ISS crew experiences a total of 16 Earth dawns every day, constantly catching up with the Earth time zones. The green and blue lights at the Earth horizon is […]

Life, part 2: Six months of Chinese studies

It feels like an eternity has passed since I first decided to study the language, about a year ago, and applied for the program. I was nightmarishly late for my very […]
