Human Pantone Project

Brazilian photographer, Angelica Dass, is on a mission to capture every skin tone in the world for her Human Pantone Project aka HUMANÆ. Pantone is the world-renowned authority on color and provider of color systems, and most known for their Pantone Color Matching System.

Once Angelica takes a stunning raw photo of a volunteer, she carefully matches the background with the exact same color code as an 11-pixel portion of the model’s face. The project aims to expand the definition of diversity and to shed light on how much skin tone differs from person to person. More importantly, Dass uses the codified Pantone system because it “dilutes the false preeminence of some races over others based on skin color or social condition.”

The project began in early 2016 and has no real end date since Dass wants to capture as much as she possibly can—salute. Hit the jump to check out Dass’ work.

NASA Builds Inflatable Greenhouse in Space

NASA is preparing for life on Mars as we speak. For years, the scientists at NASA have been experimenting with sustainable life in space—specifically Mars—and how to grow crops that will sustain human life while being away from Earth.

Recently, NASA scientists and agriculture researchers have designed an 18 by 7 foot inflatable greenhouse that can grow the greens we need deep in space. The prototype greenhouse will be used not only to grow food, but to revitalize air, recycle water and waste. In fact, the carbon dioxide exhaled by astronauts will be used by the plants to go through photosynthesis and produce oxygen. The process is called a bioregenerative life support system.
