Sini merikallio brought Moonhouse #2.14 to the Finnish Meteorological Institute on July 10, 2013. Here depicted in the Magnetosphere.
Moonhouse #2.14 has been on an exotic expedition exploring different aspects of space weather. At the Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI) the house has explored the conditions in the Magnetosphere (image above). The solar wind (below) and the weather at FMI itself. The Magnetosphere is as the reader is certainly aware of the region in space cloest to Earth where the magnetic field is dominated by the Earth magnetic field. There are other magnetospheres in the Solar System around Jupiter and around the Sun itself to mention two. The electric solar sail (ESAIL) is a novel technology for interplanetary transport that is successfully promoted by FMI. ESAIL relies on borrowing impulse from the Solar wind to propel a space system without carrying reaction mass on board. in the lower of the two images the house explores the outdoor environment at FMI in Helsinki where Moonhouse HQ has first hand experience of the harshness of the weather conditions that can prevail.
Congratulations Sini on your successful expedition. We wish you fair winds on your coming expeditions.

Sini Merikallio has outdone herself again. What else can you say about this inspiring and mind challenging picture of the house on a toe.
Huset 2.14 just återkom från Lille
(Eng: House 2.14 just returned from Lille):[…]
Och när namnet var redan ”Animal Kingdom”, visiterad denna hus naturligtvis också Lille Zoo.
(Eng: As the name was already ”Animal Kingdom”, this house naturally also visited the Lille Zoo)
We guess that the house in the background of the second image is the ”Hôtel de Ville de Lille” but we have absolutely no idea what the big rodent (or moose?) in the background is. A newly discovered mammal perhaps. You never know what you will find on an amazing adventure.
Thank you for the beautiful pictures Sini. Congratulation to yet another successful expedition and fair winds for your coming adventures.
Sini Merikallio in Finland is breaking new grounds with these absolutely stunning pictures of beautiful animals posing with the house. Sini writes:
Dessa bilder är från Skomarböle, Mörskom, Finland. Den bruna hästen är en finnhäst, Lillin-Tyttö och hundarna är labradorerna Emmi (svart) och Eevi (ljus).
Or in English:
These pictures are from Skomarböle, Mörskom, Finland. The brown horse is a finnhorse Lillin-Tyttö and the dogs are the labradores Emmi (black) and Eevi (blonde)
Be sure to check out these and more images together with Sinis own comments on her flickr Moonhouse-page.
At HQ we had never thought about the house in the Animal Kingdom but presented with this expedition we are again in awe of the creativity of Sini and the ideas of the Moonhouse Explorers. In recognition of Sinis expedition to Finland and the Animal Kingdom, Moonhouse #2.14 will henceforth be known as #2.14 – The Animal Kingdom. We congratulate Sini on her successful expedition and wish her fair wind on her coming adventures. Rumour has it that Sini already has plans for the house, the unfolding of which we look forward to with great interest.
