A/N: This was supposed to be a drabble, but I’m soft for Taehyung and so this happened. I hope you like it~
He was in a slump. It’d been days, weeks, hell maybe even
months this at this point since the last time anything had caught his eye.
Since the last time he’d seen you, the world around him seemed to pale in
comparison. He slumped into his seat of the café, a small groan falling from
his lips as he leaned his head back, letting his eyes drift shut. This wasn’t
like him, the idea of being held up over a muse of all things drove him to the
brink of insanity.
“Mister?” A sweet voice rang from beside the table.
He smirked a bit before responding. This situation was all
too familiar, to the point it had almost gotten boring. “Trust me on this
little lady, you don’t want to get involved with me.” He couldn’t be bothered
to look at the girl, already having a clear picture of what her dejected face
must look like. He pictured her as a Samantha, or maybe a Bethany, sulking
slightly at his blatant rejection, ready to stalk off back to her friends who
would assure her over and over that he was just an asshole.
So apparently Taylor's shirt in the voting pic was her sneaky way to confirm she voted for Hilary - see recent Lena Dunham insta on "cold shoulder" tops: mashable(.)com/2016/11/08/taylor-swift-voted/#L.458vAXZqq8 Jack Antonoff did like the pic too FWIW
Taylor Swift Just Told Us Who She’s Voting For With a Sweater OH MY GOD.
In her roughly 12 million Instagram posts declaring love for specific supermodels, lesser pop stars, and (since deleted) British actors-slash-DJs, Taylor Swift has never publicly endorsed a particular presidential candidate. Aside from the uncertain fate of our country, it’s been the number one most important question of the 2016 election cycle.
But in typical Taylor Swift fashion, she’s left it to the last possible moment to finally reveal which candidate will receive her vote, and in typical Taylor Swift fashion, the answer is buried in layers of mystery.
At first glance, Taylor Swift’s $88 Splendid shoulderless turtleneck is just a shoulderless turtleneck. But this is Taylor Swift we’re talking about, and Taylor Swift’s anything is never just anything.
Let second-tier Swift squad member Lena Dunham explain:
This is what we’re thinking: Taylor Swift’s shoulderless turtleneck was inspired by this exquisite photo of Hillary Clinton, or more likely, Lena Dunham’s tribute to this exquisite photo of Hillary Clinton. Either way, Taylor Swift may have found a way to subtly assure the world she’s voting for Hillary Clinton without alienating any of her Trump-supporting fans.
And this, America, is why Taylor Swift is — and will forever be — your most successful pop star.
I got a bit carried away tonight because I saw this beautiful moth called the White Ermine and was really inspired to doodle this up. I ran into some more exquisite photos of insects and am wanting to do some more of these!
Our solar system is huge, so let us break it down for you. Here are 5 things to know this week:
1. You Call the Shots
This July, when the Juno mission arrives at Jupiter, it will eye the massive planet with JunoCam. What adds extra interest to this mission is that the public is invited to help Juno scientists choose which images JunoCam will take. Now is the time to get involved.
2. Dawn Delivers
We’ve seen several images now from the Dawn spacecraft’s new, close orbit around Ceres—and they don’t disappoint. Exquisitely detailed photos of the dwarf planet reveal craters, cliffs, fractures, canyons and bright spots in many locations. “Everywhere we look in these new low-altitude observations, we see amazing landforms that speak to the unique character of this most amazing world,” said the mission’s principal investigator.
3. Remembering the Visit to a Sideways World
Jan. 24 is the 30th anniversary of Voyager 2’s Uranus flyby. The seventh planet is notable for the extreme tilt of its axis, its lacy ring system and its large family of moons—10 of which were discovered thanks to Voyager’s close encounter. In fact, we learned much of what we know about the Uranian system during those few days in 1986.
4. A Decade in the Deep
The New Horizons spacecraft left Earth 10 years ago this week. Its long voyage into deep space is, even now, transforming our understanding of the outer solar system. New data and pictures from the Pluto flyby are still streaming down from the spacecraft. Pending the approval of an extended mission, New Horizons is en route to a 2019 rendezvous with a small, unexplored world in the distant Kuiper Belt.
5. Power at a Distance
Space exploration helped drive the development of practical solar cells, and now solar power has gone farther than ever before. Last week, NASA’s Juno spacecraft broke the record for the most distant solar-powered craft when it passed a distance of 493 million miles (793 million kilometers) from the sun. The four-ton Juno spacecraft draws energy from three 30-foot-long (9-meter) solar arrays festooned with 18,698 individual cells.

Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, the TV series “Star Trek” has captured the public’s imagination with the signature phrase, “To boldly go where no one has gone before.” NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope doesn’t “boldly go” deep into space, but it is “boldly peering” deeper into the universe than ever before to explore the warping of space and time and uncover some of the farthest objects ever seen.
When “Star Trek” was first broadcast in 1966, the largest telescopes on Earth could only see about halfway across the universe – the rest was uncharted territory. But Hubble’s powerful vision has carried us into the true “final frontier.”
This is epitomized in the latest Hubble image released today in time for the new motion picture “Star Trek Beyond.” The Hubble image unveils a very cluttered-looking universe filled with galaxies near and far. Some are distorted like a funhouse mirror through a warping-of-space phenomenon first predicted by Einstein a century ago.
In the center of the image is the immense galaxy cluster Abell S1063, located 4 billion light-years away, and surrounded by magnified images of galaxies much farther.
Thanks to Hubble’s exquisite sharpness, the photo unveils the effect of space warping due to gravity. The huge mass of the cluster distorts and magnifies the light from galaxies that lie far behind it due to an effect called gravitational lensing. This phenomenon allows Hubble to see galaxies that would otherwise be too small and faint to observe. This “warp field” makes it possible to get a peek at the very first generation of galaxies. Already, an infant galaxy has been found in the field, as it looked 1 billion years after the big bang.
This frontier image provides a sneak peak of the early universe, and gives us a taste of what the James Webb Space Telescope will be capable of seeing in greater detail when it launches in 2018.
The cluster contains approximately 100 million-million solar masses, and contains 51 confirmed galaxies and perhaps over 400 more.
The Frontier Fields program is an ambitious three-year effort, begun in 2013, that teams Hubble with NASA’s other Great Observatories – the Spitzer Space Telescope and the Chandra X-ray Observatory – to probe the early universe by studying large galaxy clusters. Identifying the magnified images of background galaxies within these clusters will help astronomers to improve their models of the distribution of both ordinary and dark matter in the galaxy cluster. This is key to understanding the mysterious nature of dark matter that comprises most of the mass of the universe.
