Remember the vintage pet tornadoes in bottle? Apparently, NASA is getting lonely because they’ve been creating their own version of the bottled pet. Auroras in a bottle have been turning up on the desk of Guillaume Gronoff of the NASA Langley Research Centre. Ok, not literally on his desk. But Gronoff has been recreating lights shows found in the atmospheres of different planets in special glass domes. He’s been working his way through the different planets of our solar system and plans to next recreate light shows found on Mars.
