Orion Nebula Blackout Blind Blinds You with Science

by Shane McGlaun

The sun comes up REALLY early here in Colorado. I thought it was like 10 am last weekend, and it was only 6 am. I blame the house behind me with the mirror tint on the back windows, and the fact that Colorado is roughly 16 inches from the surface of the sun. You can easily get a sunburn on your sunburn around here. I need some blackout blinds to keep the sun from waking me too early. Plain ‘ol blinds are boring, but these Orion Nebula Blackout Blinds aren’t.

They look like you are peering out of the portal of a space ship. The picture of the Orion Nebula on the blinds is based on the incredible STScl-2006-01 image, which was composed using over 500 photos taken by the Hubble Space Telescope and the La Silla Observatory. It blocks out all the outside light, while letting the stars shine inside.

You can get these roller shades in either 36″ or 48″ wide by 60″ tall sizes. Mounting brackets are included and both sizes are available now from ThinkGeek for $69.99 and $79.99, respectively.
