Mars, Mapped 

The USGS has just released a gorgeous new geologic map of Mars, combining data from four separate spacecraft to paint a rainbow-like spectrum of terrain and texture upon the red planet.

See those four bulges on the left side of the spherical projection? Each of those four mountains, Olympus Mons, Ascraeus Mons, Arsia Mons, and Pavonis Mons, are taller than any mountain on Earth, including Mauna Kea (which rises more than six miles from the ocean floor).

Learn more at Wired’s MapLab blog, and view the incredible high-res annotated version at the USGS website

Luigi Serafini

Codex Seraphinianus

This book is further out than far out. It’s an illustrated encyclopedia of an imaginary world, created by the Italian artist, architect and industrial designer Luigi Serafini. It’s around 360 pages long (depending on edition) and written in a completely unintelligible alphabet. The book is comprised of copious hand-drawn colored-pencil illustrations, of bizarre and fantastical flora, fauna, anatomies, fashions, and foods. It’s a fervent, phantasmagorical, feast of fantasy. 

I swear this is that same thing that was made to recreate the experience of flicking through encyclopedias and textbooks when you’re a kid and seeing all these things you can’t even begin to understand because the pictures are so unfamiliar and you can’t read the explanations? I saw some other pages from this before and it’s actually stuck with me quite a bit it sounds really cool
