Sun Tunnels | Land Art

Sun Tunnels is a magical place in the remote Great Basin Desert, outside of the ghost town of Lucin, Utah. Created by Nancy Holt in 1976, this land art installation was quite a feat. The concrete tunnels are nine feet high, eighteen feet long, and weigh twenty-two tons! Nancy collaborated with engineers, pipe manufacturers, drillers, truck drivers, and astronomers on this complex, riveting project. Arranged in an x-shaped configuration, the tunnels align perfectly with sunrises and sunsets. Continue Reading

The 10 Best Clear, See-Through Faucets

These trend-setting faucets will make you want to over-wash your hands, except for the fishbowl one, where the water drains out of the fishbowl as you wash, making you think about water conservancy as the fish’s water is draining rapidly. I guarantee that all the other faucets will make you want to turn on the water and just watch, they are so cool! In the world of faucets, there are so many to choose from. There are LED-lit faucets, 3D-printed metal and glass faucets, faucets that create a vortex of water, faucets that ration your water use, or at least make you realize and ponder your consumption. Regardless of which one you select, it’s bound to be a conversation starter, and just plain fun to use. Continue Reading

NASA Rocket Motor Test | Promontory, Utah

I had the opportunity to witness NASA’s motor test of Orbital ATK’s SLS Booster, that will one day journey to Mars. It was the experience of a lifetime! The test was done in the middle of nowhere, in Promontory, Utah. The countdown leading to the motor firing was exciting, and I’ve never experienced anything like the feeling of the intense heat from the rocket fuel. The plume of smoke that developed was pretty monumental, and stories high. Every so often NASA puts on a spectacular show like this. I will do my best to let you know when the next one will be!
