Spacesuit X-Rays And Other Amazing Images From This Week

Jupiter Cake

This model of Jupiter is actually a cake, detailed down to the planet's Great Red Spot storm, which you can see in the photo (it's that swirl of chocolatey goodness). The genius creator (who runs the blog cakecrumbs) spent eight hours adding details to the planet, and also has an Earth cake. Hoping for a full solar system soon.cakecrumbs

Circular NYC

Cartographer Max Roberts created this circular version of New York City's iconic subway map. Roberts's map might be geographically distorted--the directional lines are curved, which makes the boroughs taper off at the bottom--but it looks great, and feels more organized than the actual NYC subway map.Max Roberts via Mashable

Coffee Haus

Designer Yves Behar created this coffee kiosk concept for coffee startup Briggo. It's like any other coffee shop but with all social interaction removed (score, introverts!). You order your coffee through an app and this very nice-looking robo-barista spits it out.Briggo via designboom

Spacesuit X-Rays

What happens when an astronaut breaks a bone in space? Uh, almost certainly not this, actually… But! These x-rays of spacesuits dug up by The Atlantic, including this helmet from 1964, are great.Mark Avino and Roland H. Cunningham, Smithsonian Institution via The Atlantic

Rainbow X-Rays

Meanwhile, take a look at this other work inspired by x-rays: rainbow street art from Shok Oner. Here you see the hand of a half-person, half-unicorn.Shok Oner via Colossal


Photographer Carl Warner creates digital -scapes--an earlier project was "foodscapes"--and for Bodyscapes he makes (you guessed it) landscapes out of bodies. They're almost a little unnerving. You can check out more here.Carl Warner via LikeCool

Pretty Soap

Artist Ruslan Khasanov created this image with millions of tiny gumballs by taking an up-close look at a simple mix of ink, soap, oil, and water. Who knew? You can see a video of the project here.Ruslan Khasanov via Co.Design

Slow-Mo Trees

Design studios Mkgk and Raw Color turned people into human trees by having them play with objects--say, throwing paper in the air or dangling a stick--and filming the process in slow-mo. Here's the oak tree.Mkgk and Raw Color via It's Nice That

The Next Pyongyang Airport

This could be the new look of North Korea's largest airport, according to reports from the South China Morning Post. The international airport in the capital, Pyongyang, would have room for 12 planes--which, with travel restrictions against the country, still seems like a lot--and would cost $200 million to build. Not like there's anything else that money could be spent on.PLT Planning and Architecture via Dezeen

Owl With Wig

This is an owl with hair. Why, you ask? Perhaps it is better to let your imagination run wild. Although they were apparently published in a Dutch magazine, presumably accompanying an article about owls with hair. See more birds with hair here because why not almost weekend.Rene Mesman via Behance
