Sadly, we don’t expect to ever visit outer space. For us, the final frontier will most likely remain unexplored. But that doesn’t mean it hasn’t fascinated us endlessly. We’ve pored over books and watched countless documentaries about what exists beyond the Kármán line, and we’ve come away fascinated by a great number of things. One of those things is a common theme mentioned by astronauts returning to Earth: the smell. Yes, space has a smell. When an astronaut returns from a space walk and removes their helmet, they’re hit with a distinct scent. We’ve read many descriptions and decided, since we can’t go to space, let’s bring a little bit of space to us. This candle is designed to smell like outer space. We took the descriptions those astronauts shared in various publications and crafted a 100% soy wax candle out of them. This is space in a can. No space suit required.

Retro-Video-Game-Puzzle-IF2

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
