I’ve been so fascinated by this house. It’s a guest house, designed by Poteet Architects from San Antonio, Texas. It has a porch, and rooftop garden, and just seems so beautifully done. Unfortunately, there’s only one picture of the bathroom, or whatever else hides in the left side of the container. The picture of the toilet suggests that there is still about 3-4 meters of container space to the left of it (assuming that’s the ceiling window), so there could be a bedroom hiding there. The sink in the livingroom is probably belongs to the bathroom, but that could be a good spot for a tiny kitchen as well.

Either way, over at poteet architects, there’s a few more pictures, and if you know anything else about this place, please let me know.

Weird Orbits of Alien Planets May Be Due to Twin Stars

Some of the oddly skewed orbits of many alien worlds may be due to the twin stars they are often found circling, a new study suggests.

In our solar system, the orbits of most planets are nearly circular, orbiting the sun’s equator. However, many of the exoplanets astronomers have discovered in the past two decades or so have mysteriously skewed orbits. They may be eccentric — that is, oval-shaped. They could also be inclined — tilted at an angle from the equators of their stars.
