The Cosmos, Closer to Home

These remarkable images of alien worlds and the cosmos aren’t quite what they seem. At all, actually. Indeed, these visions of outer space are the creation of Navid Baraty, and they are amazingly made with household items like cinnamon, baking powder, glassware, food coloring and water. Placed on a scanner, his worlds are remarkably real looking. Pretty amazing work! Via Colossal:
