Planet Earth is blue and there’s nothing I can do.
But you can check out that sweet Lunar Eclipse!

Welcome back students! Sorry for the past weeks of no updates but now it's time for a pip quiz. Harvard has a Cooking & Science Lecture Series for students, minus the smartie pants and tuition. Can't beat that. Guest Chef's include David Chang, Wylie Dufresne, and Dan Barber all stop by Cambridge to chat. First, David Chang lectured on the dangers of expansion and about questioning the broth-making techniques he learned at culinary school while exploring new ways to make soups and stocks.

Chang also spilled: "Molecular gastronomy... is a total bullshit word because it's just a marketing term. Everything is gastronomy. I wish I did better in school because I would have a better understand of what is going on. And now I'm reading textbooks." An hour in, microbiologists explain how they identified the Momofuku bushi fungus. Heard that Chef!
