Every morning, Buro brings you an around-the-world wrap-up of what you need to know

1. King's Cross may be closed, but eyeball tattooing is now legal
New state legislation, which comes into effect on Friday, legalises the bizarre practice, in which tattoo ink is injected into the whites of the eye. Ophthalmologists and health professionals have condemned the procedure, which places recipients at risk of infection, haemorrhage, perforation and sensitivity. The government says it has legalised the practice in an attempt to make it safer.

2. NASA plans to open an art gallery on an asteroid
We're not even joking. Set to become the universe's first extra-terrestrial art gallery, the project will take art collected via social media and install it onto near-Earth asteroid Bennu via a chip aboard the OSIRISREx spacecraft.
