hearts in space

Space Heart

whoa

stop the presses, you guys.

Did you know that astronaut’s hearts become more spherical in space??!  There’s obviously a whole host of health problems associated with the phenomena that need to be worked out before long space flights become a real possibility, but think of the poetic ramifications.

in space, unmoored from the earth, in orbit only to the Sun and all the stars our hearts change shape, become like planets.

Astrologically the Sun rules the heart, it’s the molten hot core of who we are, beating out our pulses like tiny solar flares as we orbit those we love and they orbit us.

This makes me feel like stars
