Gaia (Terra) Gossip

Spotted... on Mount Olympus or Asgard. xoxo Gossip Shmoop

The Gaia Theory is the scientific idea that all the Earth's systems and creatures work as if they were a single organism. And yep, it's named after our lady.

Gaia was a character on the cartoon show, Captain Planet . She was voiced by Whoopie Goldberg (kind of perfect, actually).

Gaia is the name of an online video game. Wonder how our lady would feel about that.

Marvel Comics included Gaea as one of their characters. We bet she was a total rock star.

The Illusion of Gaia was the name of a Super Nintendo game that came out in the 90s. Super, indeed.

Gaia is still widely worshipped by Wiccans and other Neo-Pagans. Way to stay strong, Gaia!
