Postcard From Outta Space

by Dan & The K-Zone Team | Jul 28, 2014

Heeey K-Zoners...


That’s the sound of a massive supernova spewing gamma rays, x-rays, manta rays and a bunch of spooky nanoparticles that can barbecue sausages on the whole other side of the universe. But even this looks like your li’l bro’s Peppa Pig nightlight compared to the blinding radness of the AUGUST ISSUE OF K-ZONE, where we head into outer space to suss the hottest stuff in the universe - literally!

With K-ZHQ flying like a warp-speed frisbee to the farthest corners of the galaxy, it’s been a particularly epic month of mag-making. Our suitcases are exploding with snowdomes from Saturn, postcards from Pluto, t-shirts from Titan and collectable spoons from the crab nebula.

Get a load of our holiday happy snaps!

  1. Cya Earth! Our home planet looked amazing as we shot past the International Space Station, with the sun reflecting off the ocean.

  2. Like high-octane Men in Black we donned our alien-proof ultra-shades to do what you should never do on Earth: look directly at the sun. Seems the old thing has been having a party lately, with lots of cool loops and flares.

  3. Did you know Saturn has a polar jet stream shaped like a hexagon? If that wasn’t cool enough, the red splodge in the middle is a hurricane big enough to stretch from Melbourne to Brisbane!

  4. Having zipped out of the solar system we spotted the Monkey Head Nebula, busily cooking up new stars out of cosmic gas and dust, with a batch of scones coming up.

  5. Final stop was the picturesque Sombrero Galaxy, good for a toilet break and some sightseeing. Why do holidays have to end? Adios amigos, until next time!
