The Great Carina Nebula : A jewel of the southern sky, the Great Carina Nebula, also known as NGC 3372, spans over 300 light-years, one of our galaxys largest star forming regions. Like the smaller, more northerly Great Orion Nebula, the Carina Nebula is easily visible to the unaided eye, though at a distance of 7,500 light-years it is some 5 times farther away. This gorgeous telescopic close-up reveals remarkable details of the regions central glowing filaments of interstellar gas and obscuring cosmic dust clouds. The field of view is over 50 light-years across. The Carina Nebula is home to young, extremely massive stars, including the stars of open cluster Trumpler 14 . While Eta Carinae itself maybe on the verge of a supernova explosion, X-ray images indicate that the Great Carina Nebula has been a veritable supernova factory. via NASA


The Great Nebula in Carina : In one of the brightest parts of Milky Way lies a nebula where some of the oddest things occur. NGC 3372, known as the Great Nebula in Carina, is home to massive stars and changing nebulas. The Keyhole Nebula , the bright structure just above the image center, houses several of these massive stars and has itself changed its appearance. The entire Carina Nebula spans over 300 light years and lies about 7,500 light-years away in the constellation of Carina. Eta Carinae, the most energetic star in the nebula, was one of the brightest stars in the sky in the 1830s, but then faded dramatically. Eta Carinae is the brightest star near the image center, just left of the Keyhole Nebula. While Eta Carinae itself maybe on the verge of a supernova explosion, X-ray images indicate that much of the Great Carina Nebula has been a veritable supernova factory. via NASA

Hidden Treasures of the Carina Nebula

This image shows the Great Nebula in Carina (NGC 3372) in infrared light. This majestic nebula is one of the largest nebulae in the sky and lies about 7,500 light years distant in the Southern constellation of Carina, The Keel. Several star clusters containing some of the brightest and most massive stars known are found here, including the extremely luminous hypergiant star Eta Carinae - one of the prime candidates for the next supernova explosion in our galaxy. 

Traditional images of the Carina Nebula taken in visible light primarily display the striking magenta colour from glowing Hydrogen gas, as well as large dark obscuring clouds of dust. But infrared light penetrates these clouds better and allows for a deep peek into the heart of the nebula, revealing complex details and thousands of young stars that are otherwise completely invisible. 

These stars shine primarily in the infrared and appear as golden red in this image. Only a minority of these are even visible in traditional images.

Why Netflix's huge new movie of the summer is being blocked in its director's home country

Though Netflix’s next big movie, "Okja,” is getting high praise from critics, the movie isn’t getting any love from the major theater chains in its director’s home country. 

Bong Joon-ho’s socially conscious movie about a massive pig and the girl who tries to save it from being slaughtered is going to be shut out of South Korea’s three largest theater chains (CJ CGV, Lotte Cinema, Megabox). That’s becuase of the streaming giant’s plan to release the movie in theaters and on streaming at the same time on June 29.

This means that the movie will not play on 93% of the country’s screens, according to Variety, in spite of the fact that it’s an international action movie in both English and Korean and featuring huge stars, including Jake Gyllenhaal and Tilda Swinton.

CJ CGV has stated that Netflix’s simultaneous release plan disturbs the distribution ecosystem in South Korea. It will only allow movies to be available to stream three weeks after a movie has its theatrical run. CJ CGV says the three-week delay is “an important business practice in Korea.” 

This is on the heels of the negative reaction from some corners to "Okja" and another Netflix title, “The Meyerowitz Stories,” when they had their world premieres at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Both titles currently don’t have plans to play theatrically in France. This led to the festival changing its rules, making it a requirement that all movies in competition at the festival must have a French release in place.

“Okja,” which is being released theatrically in South Korea through Next Entertainment World, will negotiate with independent theaters to show the movie.

This is not the first time Netflix has butted heads with exhibitors. 

Most of the major theater chains in the United States refused to show Netflix's “Beasts of No Nation” in 2015 because it did not adhere to the 90-day exclusive theatrical window. A year later, only a few IMAX screens showed Netflix’s “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny” because it was likewise released theatrically and streamed simultaneously.

Expect the same at most US theaters when “Okja” and “The Meyerowitz Stories" open.

The Army on the streets of Britain – a rare response to a rare horror

How many soldiers did you see on the streets today? If you live in a city, and you were out and about in the centre, you might have seen a couple, or some armed police officers. If you live in a town or further afield, you might have read about troops being deployed at London landmarks and seen the photographs of their camouflage dress incongruously blending in with the stonework of the Palace of Westminster.

How did that make you feel? There is no doubt that this is a significant moment. The last time troops were deployed for security, rather than to help with the foot and mouth outbreak or floods, was in February 2003, when armoured vehicles were positioned around Heathrow Airport. That was in response to intelligence of a specific threat. It was localised and short-lived and yet it was hugely controversial. This time, a more widespread deployment of troops seems to have been accepted by the British public as an exceptional and necessary measure in response to Monday’s suicide bombing.

Perhaps we are more used to seeing armed police and soldiers on the streets in other European countries. Perhaps we are more inclined to accept, reluctantly, that a wholly unarmed police force cannot be maintained after the murder of Keith Palmer at the Houses of Parliament in March. Perhaps in those times when no act of terrorism has been committed in Britain for months or years, we might feel uneasy at the sight of a police officer with a submachine gun, or at the idea of soldiers on the streets. But today, with the trauma of the Manchester nail-bomb still vivid and the screams of the young people still echoing in our ears, we might feel reassured.

Of course, we cannot know exactly what was said at yesterday’s meetings of the emergency Cobra committee. We cannot know on what grounds the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre – the independent body which assesses the threat from terrorism – raised the threat level from severe to critical. We cannot be sure, therefore, that the police decision to invoke Operation Temperer, requesting support from the armed forces, was justified. However, there should be no doubt that this is what JTAC and the police, operating at arms’ length from politicians, have to be able to do. Responding to the threat of terrorism is bound to be a labour-intensive operation and if JTAC judges that “a further attack may be imminent”, in the Prime Minister’s words yesterday, then the police ought to be able to draw on military personnel for support.

Now is not the time for debates that would quickly become party-political about civil liberties or police resources. Now is the time for mourning, and for reassurance. Part of that reassurance is rightly a matter of visible security, which inevitably means some infringement of absolute liberty – the freedom not to have one’s bags searched in crowded places, for example. Mostly, those infringements are accepted as the price of safety in a liberal democracy.

The most important part of reassurance, however, must lie in the knowledge that terrorism is so rare. Our horror at the senseless murder in Manchester is intensified by how unusual it is. Indeed, the number of deaths from terrorism in western Europe was three times higher in the 1970s than it has been in the past decade, according to the University of Maryland’s Global Terrorism Database.

Thanks in part to the unseen work of the security services, the norm in this country is for long periods to pass when the threat of terrorism is all but forgotten. Exceptional measures may be needed to respond to exceptional events, and they may be a price that has to be paid; a reminder, when the threat level is eventually downgraded, of the horrors – rare though they may be – that the nation must constantly strive to avert.

Le ipotesi sulla causa del tragico incendio alla torre Grenfell

Le cause del devastante incendio alla torre Grenfell a Londra non sono ancora state chiarite e per arrivare a esse ci sarà una lunga inchiesta. Ci sono già, tuttavia, delle ipotesi su come il rogo si sia formato, e sono al vaglio dei periti. L’azienda che gestiva il palazzo, tramite un comunicato stampa, invita ad attendere le indagini e si dichiara consapevole delle condizioni di sicurezza che gli inquilini avevano denunciato in passato (una tragica beffa).

Le ipotesi sull’incendio alla Grenfell Tower di Londra

Il devastante incendio della Grenfell Tower, che ha portato via con sè vite umane e che è al centro di un’immensa polemica sulle misure di sicurezza presenti, sarà presto interessato da un’indagine approfondita per trovare la cause o le cause scatenanti. (AP)

Circolano già alcune plausibili ipotesi su un incendio che ha interessato, purtroppo, un palazzo privo di misure di sicurezza adeguate. 120 appartamenti su 24 piani, con una sola scala e un unico ingresso di entrata e di uscita, estintori e sistema d’allarme non aggiornati: questa è la situazione prima del disastro, denunciata più volte da un’associazione di inquilini (Grenfell Action Group) ai proprietari di KCTMO.

Esplosione di gas. Gli inquilini hanno riferito di alcuni lavori relativi alle tubature in occasione di un’operazione di restyling esterno e interno dell’edificio durante il 2015. In questo caso potrebbe esserci stata una fuga di gas da un singolo appartamento, e poi l’accensione dell’incendio. Non sono stati uditi forti scoppi, a tal punto che molti inquilini non si erano nemmeno accorti del disastro. (AP)

Corto circuito a causa di un frigorifero. Dei testimoni hanno udito un inquilino raccontare che potrebbe essere stato il suo frigorifero la causa dell’incendio. Un corto circuito elettrico che si sarebbe dunque velocemente propagato da quel piano fino in cima. (Reuters)

Fili elettrici difettosi. La presenza di cavi non a norma, vecchi o consumati potrebbe avere dato il là all’incendio – per via magari di un sovraccarico di potenza. L’associazione degli inquilini aveva già posto il problema tra il 2012 e il 2013. (AP)

Nuovi pannelli. Nel 2015 il palazzo è stato ammodernato con l’inserimento di uno strato di isolamento termico e di pannelli in materiale composito. Tra i metalli presenti c’era lo zinco e, come riporta il Telegraph, il fuoco si è propagato velocemente: si tratta infatti di un materiale estremamente infiammabile (Reuters)

Mancanza di sprinklers. I cosiddetti spruzzatori, utili in caso di incendio a sopprimere parte delle fiamme, non erano presenti. Inoltre non hanno funzionato nemmeno gli allarmi antincendio. (AP)

Ora c’è preoccupazione per altri edifici nel Regno Unito che hanno seguito la stessa “regolamentazione” di sicurezza presente nella Grenfell Tower. (AP)

La beffa, come sostengono gli inquilini sopravvissuti, è che il palazzo è stato rinnovato con una spesa di 10 milioni di dollari ma nessuna delle richieste sulla sicurezza ha avuto seguito con aggiornamenti o nuove installazioni. (AP)

Ecco il fotoconfronto tra il palazzo pre 2011 e prima dell’incendio. L’opinione pubblica si attende un giro di vite da parte del governo britannico sulle normative di legge riguardo alla sicurezza attiva e passiva negli edifici residenziali con più appartamenti. (The Sun)
