Man made Sun

atomic sunset

The photo of this 'man made sun' was taken on July, 8, 1956 during a Apache H-bomb test on Eniwetok atoll. In 1963, health concerns about radioactive fallout led to a ban on atmospheric testing of atomic bombs. Since then, we haven't had a chance to enjoy the vibrant radiation of atomic sunsets anymore.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
