Cosmic clouds form fantastic shapes in the central regions of emission nebula IC 1805. The clouds are sculpted by stellar winds and radiation from massive hot stars in the nebula'snewborn star cluster, Melotte 15. About 1.5 million years young, the cluster stars are scattered in this colorful skyscape, along with dark dust clouds in silhouette against glowing atomic gas. A composite of narrowband and broadband telescopic images, the view spans about 15 light-years and includes emission from ionized hydrogen, sulfur, and oxygen atoms mapped to green, red, and blue hues in the popular Hubble Palette. Wider field images reveal that IC 1805’s simpler, overall outline suggests its popular name - The Heart Nebula. IC 1805 is located about 7,500 light years away toward the boastful constellation Cassiopeia.
I'll help you out. "Aberystwyth" is pronounced abber-ist-width. "Blaenau Ffestiniog" is bl-eye-na fes-tin-e-og And this fucker "llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch" is roughly clan-fire-pull-Gwen-gil-go-ger(like care)a-win-drob-ulgh(a throaty chh)-clan-ti-silly-o-go-go-goch but you gotta get that phleghmy ch in there
IT’S FINALLY HERE: AKUMASONA/MIRACUSONA WEEK!!! Quick kudos to @akumasonas for coming up with the ideas! (just one more thing to keep me from doing my schoolwork lol)
Day 1 - Akumasona
This is Supernova, a bright astronomer turned out-of-this-world akuma when her discoveries about a new galaxy were stolen by a colleague, costing her the opportunity of a lifetime. Don’t let her starstruck look fool you, though - Supernova’s genius IQ, explosive superpowers and merciless mindset are nothing short of dangerous.
Akuma location: Her armband. Powers: Supernova has two forms. Cosmic Form (basically what she looks like in the picture^) is her default form for direct confrontations. Her powers enable her to create and fire blinding starlight from her hands, call down meteors and manipulate gravity (on a small scale). She can also shoot neutron stars at people to drastically increase their density and render them immobile. In Black Hole Form, all of her power is used to change the galaxies in her “dress” into a black hole, sucking in anything and everything around her. In both forms, the lower half of her body is made of gas (or no matter at all), making her diffcult to keep in one place.
That was super long, I’m so sorry guys, but I hope it was worth it! :D And of course, please don’t repost. I wouldn’t do it to you, so don’t do it to me
DIVINE WORD OF THE ORACLE. a headcanon about COSMIC GODS.
aka leviathan, behemoth & ziz. ties in with original canon on my oc @maedrvar!!
COSMIC GODS rank above almost all deity hierarchies. the SOURCE made first the PRIMORDIALS, time, space, gravity. then, came the ELEMENTALS, water, fire, earth, air, aether. thirdly came the COSMIC GODS, leviathan, behemoth, ziz. they are known alternatively as DEATH, LIFE, & REVIVAL.
only leviathan & behemoth ever take DEITY or HUMAN form. ziz is always in a cosmic form, usually a bird ( ziz is the cosmic owl pass it on ).
leviathan’s cosmic form is a GIANT SERPENTINE DRAGON with scales that seem to have swirling galaxies upon them. it’s structurally like the thing that dartz becomes while he stands in the crumbling atlantis, but way larger. behemoth is obviously a LARGE MAMMALIAN THING, also in cosmic form with a body the color of swirling galaxies.
in human forms cosmic gods share ONE THING in common: gold eyes. i’m looking at you, diva; what a great behemoth you’d be. all deities embodied, whether cosmic or pantheon ( read: any mortal societal group of gods, greece, sumer, egypt, japan etc ), are usually unnaturally attractive, to the point where humans find it unsettling.
leviathan & behemoth, like all other deities, are FIERCELY LOYAL to those in their group, or to other gods in general. they can wield the other one’s power in case of emergency. if one is felled, the other will do both jobs until the felled cosmic god revives, as is dictated by the SOURCE. you cannot kill ZIZ, because ziz never takes a DEITY or HUMAN form. you cannot truly kill a cosmic god & cannot lay a scratch on them in COSMIC FORM. luckily, they do not take that form while on a world, the world would be crushed.
maybe we’re all here by chance, maybe there’s no grand scheme, maybe our fates aren’t planned out from the get go. maybe it all just is. maybe nothing was meant to happen. isn’t it wonderful, that despite all that, it happened anyways?
cosmic-rebirth: We are connected, both to the planet, and to the universe, by the energy that forms and animates everything. There is nothing that separates us except the illusions we perpetuate, that we are the highest, most-significant form of life among the countless forms that we know, or may never know.
Those with Pluto in the third house of communication, short travel, learning and community express their cosmic print in the form of knowledge, thought, writing and speaking, where one poem can encompass the traumas and the wondrous elements of their lives that they spend many day and nights thinking about. The Pluto in the third house individual will find much wisdom from short trips and travel, from trivia and from news, having a transformative effect on the way they view their humanity and their spirit, their endless potential not limited by a body but by the flourishing of their mind. While they can be hit with periods of upsetting thoughts and haunting images, they are the ones that teach us to express even the most private pieces of ourselves through the communicative realm.
Do you see this fucker right here? This is a fucking delicious piece of the galaxy called the cosmic brownie. Normally you would get a maximum of six little chocolate chips on the top, but no. NO. I GOT 43 FUCKING CHOCOLATE CHIPS
Annibal Barlet - Chart of Cosmic Elements,
“Le Vray et Methodique Cours de la Physique Resolutive Vulgairement dite Chymie” (”The True and Methodical Course in Resolutive Physick, Commonly called Chemistry”), 1657.
Annibal Barlet proposed a number of Cosmological arguments that included Elements of Alchemy and Astrology. This is the sixth example, bringing together his previous five Cosmic arguments and joining them with the Animal, Vegetable, Mineral and Metal ‘Kingdoms’ to form a Cosmic model of the World.
-Meteor Cosmos inherits the Cosmic Barizun Sword in an alternate form; Cosmic Lotus Qiang (same weapon, longer hilt). Much like the Barizun version, the Qiang will ‘blossom’ open from four folding hatches to reveal a deadly speartip. Specific switches also affect its form and the way it folds.
-Meteor Cosmos has the ability to call upon any switch— but leaves the choice to 'Fate’. Through Meteor’s strong resolve and unwavering will, he will be able to call upon powers he needs at any given moment in Cosmic states. However, if his resolve wavers, 'Fate’ will randomize which one he gets and they will more than likely, be less favorable.
Most of the meals are just-add-water, or come ready to eat in pouches. There are also packaged foods an ordinary person could buy from a store, like almonds or wrapped brownies. Hot and cold beverages come in bags with straws, similar to a Capri Sun. Food packets attach to the galley table with velcro patches so they don’t fly away.
2) Getting creative on Mars
NASA wants to load a vessel with food and send it to Mars before the astronauts set off. That means food scientists have to make meals that will stay good for five years.
3) The challenges
Some nutrients break down naturally over time; space radiation — cosmic rays and other forms of radiation that Earth’s atmosphere normally blocks — could be an added problem. Meals must take into account the special challenges to astronauts’ bodies in space, such as weightlessness, shrinking bones, and squashing eyeballs.
4) Growing crops on the spaceship
And even on the surface of another planet — could solve several of these problems at once. Astronauts wouldn’t need to lug as much food with them. They’d have fresh produce rich in vitamins. And they could mix up their menus with some of that texture they miss.
5) Keeping astronauts happy and healthy
NASA is studying how the senses of smell and taste change in microgravity and isolation, for example. In one study, researchers are supplying comfort foods and holiday treats to the space station, with astronauts filling out mood questionnaires before and after eating. The crew will also rate solo versus communal meals, as well as the experience of “cooking” the food themselves.
“At the end of the day, we’re not worried about the muscle cells. We’re worried about the human.“
The Fox Fur Nebula : This interstellar canine is formed of cosmic dust and gas interacting with the energetic light and winds from hot young stars. The shape, visual texture, and color, combine to give the region the popular name Fox Fur Nebula. The characteristic blue glow on the left is dust reflecting light from the bright star S Mon, the bright star just below the top edge of the featured image. Textured red and black areas are a combination of the cosmic dust and reddish emission from ionized hydrogen gas. S Mon is part of a young open cluster of stars, NGC 2264, located about 2,500 light years away toward the constellation of the Unicorn . via NASA
