mythology meme:  [1/8] myths, legends, and stories
↳ ‘koit ja hämarik’ (‘dawn and dusk’)

Considered one of the most beautiful Estonian myths of popular origin, ‘Koit ja Hämarik’ is a fabricated myth by F. R. Faehlmann, first published in 1840. It has since become a beloved folk tale in Estonia.
Dusk is the female spirit responsible for extinguishing the light of the Sun when the night comes, and Dawn is her male counterpart responsible for re-lighting the Sun in the morning. Although they only met once a day so Dusk could hand over the Sun to Dawn, the two fell deeply in love. The Grandfather saw this and offered to let them marry, but the couple declined the offer and asked to remain unwed, because that way their love would remain forever bright and new. The Grandfather blessed their decision and the two only meet for a longer time during the four weeks around summer solstice, when the flowers bloom at their most beautiful and the nightingales sing most sweetly.

Space Origami: NASA’s Foldable Solar Array

When sending things into space, cargo is limited and costs are high. That’s why Brigham Young University researchers and NASA are using origami to develop ways of making solar arrays more compact. The current design allows the array to expand from 9 ft. to a whopping 80 ft. in diameter once it’s deployed in outer space. The array is expected to generate 150 kW of power, a significant increase over the 84 kW currently produced by the International Space Station. The absence of sliding parts in the solar array also decreases the likelihood of malfunction since scientists would only need to launch, deploy and monitor a single system.
