face-on-spiral

A gorgeous spiral galaxy some 100 million light-years distant, NGC 1309 lies on the banks of the constellation of the River (Eridanus). NGC 1309 spans about 30,000 light-years, making it about one third the size of our larger Milky Way galaxy. Bluish clusters of young stars and dust lanes are seen to trace out NGC 1309’s spiral arms as they wind around an older yellowish star population at its core. Not just another pretty face-on spiral galaxy, observations of NGC 1309’s recent supernova and Cepheid variable stars contribute to the calibration of the expansion of the Universe.

Okay, so those Nendo stickers to make faces on the blank face plates right? So I’m that maniac who needs to know every possible combination and not just the suggested faces. (The colored lines separate the intended expressions from the variations.)

1. We know generally the eyes/eyebrows and mouths are two separate pieces. For the more complex ones like Ichi’s whiskers and Jyushi’s spit, I have no idea how many separate pieces the stickers will be in, so I just guessed yo. (Assuming the spiral face is one piece. Wouldn’t make sense not to be.)

2. Obv if you buy more than one Nendo that drastically changes how many combinations you can make. This is just for each boy’s individual stickers since they take their minute facial differences into account.

3. Idk why the skin tones and sizes seem to differ. The stickers should be clear so skin color shouldn’t be an issue.

4. The images are technically prototypes I think? So the final stickers may differ and render this moot. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

P.S. Sorry if these look askew/wonky. This is just a general idea; it’ll probably look different when actually spaced on the face since these are 2D renderings of 3D objects.

Beautiful island universe Messier 94 lies a mere 15 million light-years distant in the northern constellation of the hunting dogs, Canes Venatici. A popular target for earth-based astronomers, the face-on spiral galaxy is about 30,000 light-years across, with spiral arms sweeping through the outskirts of its broad disk. But this Hubble Space Telescope field of view spans about 7,000 light-years or so across M94’s central region. The sharp close-up examines the galaxy’s compact, bright nucleus and prominent inner dust lanes, surrounded by a remarkable bluish ring of young, massive stars. The massive stars in the ring are all likely less than 10 million years old, indicating the galaxy experienced a well-defined era of rapid star formation. As a result, while the small, bright nucleus is typical of the Seyfert class of active galaxies, M94 is also known as a starburst galaxy. Because M94 is relatively nearby, astronomers can explore in detail reasons for the galaxy’s burst of star formation.

One of the most depressing moments in my anime watching history was while watching gurren lagann while they were facing the anti spiral and he sends them into that state of a thousand realities and when they start getting called back you see viral is in a reality with a family where he’s happy and loves and when he realizes it’s fake he just looks up and sighs and comments on how he knew it was too good to be true like come on man, don’t hurt me like that

This image was taken by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope’s Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) and shows a starburst galaxy named MCG+07-33-027. This galaxy lies some 300 million light-years away from us, and is currently experiencing an extraordinarily high rate of star formation — a starburst.

Normal galaxies produce only a couple of new stars per year, but starburst galaxies can produce a hundred times more than that. As MCG+07-33-027 is seen face-on, the galaxy’s spiral arms and the bright star-forming regions within them are clearly visible and easy for astronomers to study.

In order to form newborn stars, the parent galaxy has to hold a large reservoir of gas, which is slowly depleted to spawn stars over time. For galaxies in a state of starburst, this intense period of star formation has to be triggered somehow — often this happens due to a collision with another galaxy. MCG+07-33-027, however, is special; while many galaxies are located within a large cluster of galaxies, MCG+07-33-027 is a field galaxy, which means it is rather isolated. Thus, the triggering of the starburst was most likely not due to a collision with a neighboring or passing galaxy and astronomers are still speculating about the cause. The bright object to the right of the galaxy is a foreground star in our own galaxy.

anonymous asked:

you're pissed at her aren't you. I get it she fucked up.. she wanted to stay on good terms with Kanye and fit in but then it blew up in her face and completely spiralled out of control and she probably had no idea what to do so she tried to hide it as best as she could and now it's not just blown up in her face but all over the damn kitchen but she still does not deserve all this intense hate cause at the end of the day I bet the majority of the fandom and those haters have done much worse

i’m not pissed at her. disappointed, maybe. i understand her side but i also understand kanye’s and i think tay’s insta would’ve been better if she’d attempted to apologize for the way that she KNEW people took her quote. she could’ve apologized AND defended herself in one post but instead she just defended herself and made herself look even worse.

but no i’m not mad at her i just wish she would’ve handled this better
