Right now, 500 light years away from Earth, there’s a planet that looks a lot like our own. It is bathed in dim orangeish light, which at high noon is only as bright as the golden hour before sunset back home.
NASA scientists are calling the planet Kepler-186f, and it’s unlike anything they’ve found. The big news: Kepler-186f is the closest relative to the Earth that researchers have discovered.
It’s the first Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of another star—the sweet spot between too-hot Mercury-like planets and too-cold Neptunes— and it is likely to give scientists their first real opportunity to seek life elsewhere in the universe. “It’s no longer in the realm of science fiction,” said Elisa Quintana, a researcher at the SETI Institute.
But if there is indeed life on Kepler-186f, it may not look like what we have here. Given the redder wavelengths of light on the planet, vegetation there would sprout in hues of yellow and orange instead of green.

There are so many talented graphic makers in this fandom whose work often times don’t get enough recognition due to FMA’s popularity. Other fandoms, such as SnK and Naruto, have been successful in solving this by creating a general “edit tag.” We already have an edit tag: #fmaedit. Unfortunately, not everyone is aware of it’s existence.
What is #fmaedit?
- a special tag for graphic makers to use for all their FMA edits
- things to tag as #fmaedit [gifs, graphics, basically anything visual]
- things NOT to tag as #fmaedit [text posts, personal stuff, reposted edits, reposted fanarts, rps, audio posts]
How does #fmaedit work?
- If you are an FMA gif/graphic maker tag your edits with #fmaedit
- Be sure to put #fmaedit as one of your first 5 tags (Click this to learn more on how tagging works on tumblr)
Why should I use #fmaedit?
- it makes hunting and reblogging FMA graphics easier
- It’s possibly the best way to discover new graphic makers and meet fellow FMA fans
Start tracking this tag so that you can see even more gorgeous FMA posts on your dash. For you cannot gain anything without sacrificing something else in return, help us promote #fmaedit and you will gain an irreplaceable fullmetal heart.
