This week's NASA update has got us all singing a David Bowie classic, we were also stopped in our tracks by some incredible street art in Whitby Street, and Macbeth has been released

Life on Mars

Cue David Bowie…

For as long as we can remember, scientists have debated the idea of there being other intelligent life in our universe. From bug-eyed UFO’s, monstrous-like creatures and aliens in human suits, aliens have been a topic of science fiction not real life. However NASA’s latest discovery has lead to one of the most historic finds of our time – water on Mars.

Mars is not as dry as NASA had first thought, it has actual flowing liquid water. This means that the water could in fact be a source for a habitable environment. Images from the 1970’s showed Mars’ surface as having dried-up rivers which would have originally come from large ancient lakes. This suggested that any life that may have been living on Mars had long died out. NASA’s latest work however suggests something much more exciting – we are not alone.

The news comes just in time for the release of The Martian starring Matt Damon – an adaptation from Andy Weir’s bestselling novel.

London Graffiti, Whitby Street

Following on from a previous post I thought I’d update you on some further artwork that I came across in East London.

James Cochran is the latest graffiti artist to have his work on display in Whitby Street. Judging by how many tags and variations of Instagram photos I have seen I would say that it has been a hit among locals and tourists. Cochran has managed to create both a soft and hard focus using a drip painting style, which allows the object of the piece to really jump out at you. The more angles you view it from the more detail becomes apparent.

A great site to check out if you are passing through Shoreditch.

Stars, hide your fires; Let not light see my black and deep desires…

Michael Fassbender.
Macbeth.
Movie.
Miss it ye not.
