3-D images of the Sun

// September 29th, 2010 // No Comments » // Einstein, Politics, science, video

Amazing stereo images of our dear sun. We are so utterly dependent upon this fragile ball of nuclear fusion a mere 93,000,000 miles away, more or less. Thank you NASA for the good work. Notice a particularly spectacular flare near the end of the video in the upper right hand corner.

Cosmic Love

// August 27th, 2009 // No Comments » // Einstein, Photos, science

Hey, I’m all for cosmic love, but these two should get a room!  Oh, I suppose it’s just gravity at work. NGC 2207 and IC 2163 are a pair of spiral galaxies about 144 million light-years away in the constellation Canis Major that are in the process of colliding and merging together. In about a billion years time they will merge and become an elliptical galaxy. As solitary stars have been found to be the exception, so we find that many galaxies are headed for mixing it up with neighbors.

At this distance, an embrace of light.
