Exobiotanica is, from what I can tell, a project that sends various plants to 30,000 meters, or nearly 100,000, feet from the earth’s surface. Though I think the theory behind this project might be a bit avant-garde for my tastes, the end result of a photograph like this is nothing short of miraculous. An outer space setting, seemingly on the edge of our atmosphere, is cold and harsh. Not where I would expect to see any live entity thriving. But seeing this bonsai tree in a floating terrarium, which could just as easily be in my apartment, makes one dream of the possibilities…..

Very early in my career in packaging, my boss said, “nature’s egg is the best packaging ever”. Knowing what I do now, I think, “what are you nuts? (foreshadowing!); no way”. Sure, the eggshell may maintain freshness, but the shell is so fragile that only because of man’s innovation in creative packaging has it been that the egg can be transported, stored, and sold to consumers with limited breaking and spoiling. Without man’s packaging solutions, the egg would only stay local to the chicken farmer and his immediate community. Custom packaging manufacturing has allowed the egg to be raised in one location and safely shared all around the globe.
In a recent New Yorker article by Malcolm Gladwell on economist/philosopher Albert O. Hirschman and “The Power of Failure”, Gladwell discusses Hirschman’s views on failure. Most people are fearful of failure and avoid it at all costs; in fact I read an article recently telling of a prestigious investment bank with scores of high achievers who are driven by enormous fear of failure. Hirschman, of whom Gladwell states “Hirschman was a planner who saw virtue in the fact that nothing went as planned” takes a different stance. As an advisor for The World Bank, surveying its worldwide projects, Hirschman noted World Bank would develop infrastructure in Third World countries as a means to reduce anxiety about the future, presumably to allow for development. Hirshman’s contention was that the exercise and challenge of development allows for unexpected creativity and well-planned economic growth.
