today’s Very Short List:
tech 3 Dec 2012

by Patrick James, managing editor of VSL.


  • The images remind me of the current Harper’s cover story (sadly, print only), which references Garth Illingworth’s deep views of the universe. [2 of 3]
  • Only a fraction of a fraction of the universe might sustain life. Then again, we just found ice and organic matter close to home: on Mercury. [3 of 3]
  • All images via NASA.

very short list is a
delightful e-mail that shares
cultural gems from a
different curator every day.
