Strawbale construction: 3 times the insulation value of a conventional wall; 3 times more fire proof than a conventional home (yes, you read that right!); lessens pollution by using a waste material that normally contributes significantly to the pollution cycle; ideal building system for the owner builder; incredibly sound proof; able to withstand natural disasters (earthquakes, high wind/tornado) significantly better than a conventional home; aesthetically beautiful.

The caterpillar-shaped knot, called IRAS 20324+4057, is a protostar in a very early evolutionary stage. It is still in the process of collecting material from an envelope of gas surrounding it. The object lies 4,500 light-years away in the constellation Cygnus. - http://www.nasa.gov/content/goddard/nasa-s-hubble-sees-a-cosmic-caterpillar/#.U_Ej7_l5OSr - via Aftab khAn's photo on Google+
