New Zealand’s Waitomo caves produce ‘underground stars’

Quote:These alternative heavenly bodies are the glowworms of the Waitomo caves in New Zealand that create a perpetual, remarkable night sky along the ceilings of the caves.

Quote: In their larval stage, these glowworms go fishing with long silk threads called “snares,” creating sticky candelabras. These drippy traps reflect and diffuse the glowworm’s native light, enhancing the starry-night effect for cave-bound sky gazers.

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice
