Lauren in the Attic

My name is Lauren, I live in Melbourne, Australia. I sleep in the attic.

Occasional verse #3

The pedals are steady prisms, beneath my circling feet,
The bike lane a ribbon of moonlight, upon the gritty street,
My heart pounds a quickening rhythm, my blood sings bright in my veins,
As I slipslide through the back streets, to work and home again.

NASA engineers use origami as inspiration when they fold up solar panels for their trip to space. Shown here: the Miura fold. Once a piece of paper (or solar array) is all folded up, it can be completely unfolded in one smooth motion. You can read more about origami in space here, and learn how to do the Miura fold in this video:
