Seeing a supernovae within hours of the explosion
For the first time ever, scientists have gathered direct evidence of a rare Wolf-Rayet star being linked to a specific type of stellar explosion known as a Type IIb supernova. Peter Nugent of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory says they caught this star – a whopping 360 million light years away – just a few hours after it exploded.
Did you know? A group of jellies is commonly referred to as a “smack!”
A massive star plowing through the gas and dust floating in space. Zeta Oph is a bruiser, with 20 times the Sun’s mass. It’s an incredibly luminous star, blasting out light at a rate 80,000 times higher than the Sun! Even at its distance of 400 light years or so, it should be one of the brightest stars in the sky … yet it actually appears relatively dim to the eye.
yo, ho all hands
hoist the colours high
heave ho,thieves and beggars
never shall we die
Wait is that first bit about Calypso?
The whole song is about Calypso. It’s literally a fable about the Brethren Court imprisoning the goddess of the sea in human form and thus claiming control of the sea themselves, disguised as a sea shanty.

Telling short films through gifs: THE MAKER
In this short film an odd creature awakens to find time ticking away. He opens up a book and starts making another creature similar to him. You might think he’s making a lover for himself, but in the end he hands his creation the same book and is wisped away, forever gone.
His new creation now has to make a creation of her own.
I like this short film because it represents life. You know that old “we’re going to die anyway so what’s the point”. The point is even though we don’t live on, our ideas, our creations, and our views do. They will be passed on and molded for generations to come with each one getting more beautiful as time moves on.
And that makes it worthwhile.
