MORE TWINS IN KOREA
Moms and dads in Korea are starting a new trend. Along with choosing to marry and have children later in life, a third trend is taking off...Having Twins!
Since more Koreans are waiting to have children until later in their adulthood, they are also then tackling fertility issues. So for some, while going through the process of getting IVF, they are consciously choosing to have more than one baby at a time.
Read more about others reasons why this trend is on the rise in Korea...

For awhile now, Francois Brunelle has been using his photography skills to document doppelgangers
Doppelgangers are people who happen to look strikingly similar, almost like twins, but who aren't related.
Many non-twins are fascinated by twin siblings and the bond that they share. Brunelle's doppelganger pairs were no exception to this fascination. Many of his pairs have been thrilled to find their "un-related" twin in life. Many even felt an instant bond with his or her familiar looking friend.

From MOST Blog - Mothers of Super Twins: Stories from the heart
Fire Exit Strategies: Plans for 2 or more children
Bettmann / Corbis
Cecile Dionne learned to say "doctor" before she did "mother." As one of the Dionne girls — the first set of quintuplets to survive infancy, born 75 years ago on May 28 — Cecile spent her first nine years under medical care in "Quintland," a hospital that essentially doubled as a government-run theme park. Born in Ontario to a pair of devout Catholics (who had, and would produce, several additional children), the Dionne quintuplets were an immediate media sensation, a Depression-era precursor to today's Octomoms and Jon and Kates. Two months premature, weighing about 2 lb. each, Cecile, Annette, Yvonne, Marie and Emilie were quickly made wards of the state by authorities, who feared that their father would exploit them for his own financial benefit. Then, in a supreme irony, the quints were set up in a hospital directly across the street from their parents' farmhouse, where tourists and passersby lined up for hours to gawk...

______________________________________________________________________Twins and Motherhood Thrice blessed
THROUGHOUT history, twins have provoked mixed feelings. Sometimes they were seen as a curse—an unwanted burden on a family’s resources. Sometimes they were viewed as a blessing, or even as a sign of their father’s superior virility. But if Shannen Robson and Ken Smith, of the University of Utah, are right, twins have more to do with their mother’s sturdy constitution ...

To the casual telescopic observer, the spiral galaxy NGC 6744 in the far-southern constellation of Pavo, the Peacock, might appear as a hazy cloud roughly two-thirds the width of a full moon. Even a small backyard telescope can probably reveal a hazy oval disc with a bright center. A beefier scope might harness more of the 30-million-year-old light to reveal spiral arms draped around a bright, dusty nucleus.
NGC 6744 has long been touted as a twin to the Milky Way. The European Southern Observatory (ESO) has now added a highly detailed, face-on view that gives us an idea of what the Milky Way might look like to alien telescopes trained on our galaxy...
