name a planet

anonymous asked:

How many colonies are there in the IDW series? And if they're all connected to the Thirteen Tribes, then does each colony worship one specific Prime like the Transformers on Caminus do?

We’ve been told there were Thirteen colony Titans, one for each of the Primes/Tribes, but we haven’t seen them all yet, nor do we know which Prime matches up to all of the colonies we’ve seen. What we have seen includes:

Caminus, Titan of Solus Prime, who gave his name to the planet he settled.
Chela, Titan of Onyx Prime, who settled the planet Eukaris
Prion, Titan of Micronus Prime, who settled an unknown planet
Vigilem, Titan of Liege Maximo, who settled no planet
Navitas, who settled the planet Velocitron; Prime unknown
Carcer, Prime and planet unknown
Tempo, Prime and planet unknown
An unnamed Titan who settled the planet Devisun, Prime unknown

And presently, many ‘bots think that Metrotitan is the thirteenth Titan, Earth is the thirteenth colony, and Optimus Prime is the reincarnation of the thirteenth Prime.

Caminus is really the only planet we’ve seen a close look at the religion of, but all the colonies that have joined the Council of Worlds seem to deify the original Primes - ‘bots from all over are falling in line behind Optimus after the idea that he is a True Prime came to light. It’s logical to think that each one might hold their own personal Prime higher than the others, but Caminus is the only one we’ve really seen doing it. The Velocitronians don’t seem a very religious bunch, and the Devisiens’ Titan has been dead a long time so they don’t likely have much of a connection to their spiritual origins.


Happy Birthday to Terra-Man!

On February 25, 1878, Toby Manning was born.  The son of outlaw, Jess Manning, Toby carried out his first robbery at the age of ten, while his father recuperated from a bullet-wound.  When an alien tried to steal the loot, the elder Manning shot at him.  The alien killed Jess Manning in self-defence, but not before telepathically linking with the dying outlaw.  The alien decided to raise the boy as his father had intended.  Taking the Toby into space, he trained the youngster how to use alien weapons, which he adapted to 19th Century Earth weapons.  Once Toby learned all he could, he killed the alien.  He became the interstellar outlaw, Terra-Man, naming himself after his home planet.  Upon returning to Earth, he realized that interstellar travel had slowed his aging and that nearly a century had passed.  He fought Superman several times, and Blue Devil once.

Created by Cary Bates, Curt Swan, and Dick Dillin, Terra-Man first appeared in Superman v.1 #249, cover-dated March 1972.

For centuries people thought that the Romans named the planets in the Solar system after their gods. The truth has mostly been forgotten over the ages and is now only known to your family, who pass it from generation to generation. You have been the guardian of the secret for the past couple of years, and you still don’t know what to do with the knowledge that the planets actually are the gods. Real gods with godly powers.

🌌 NASA discovered 7 earth-sized planets. I would like to create a petition to name these planets like the BTS members. Seokjinet, Yoongirm, Hoshineok,Namjoonium, Jiminion, Taetaerth and Kookietune.🌌

They deserve it.

It was a very unique prep process. David Ayer does more… he calls it rehearsal but it’s much more like group therapy where you sit around and everybody talks about their deepest emotional issues and your trials and tribulations.

Planetary nebula with spiral arms

The two spiral arms winding towards the bright centre might deceive you into thinking you are looking at a galaxy a bit like our Milky Way. But the object starring in this image is of a different nature: PK 329-02.2 is a ‘planetary nebula’ within our home galaxy. 

Despite the name, this isn’t a planet either. Planetary nebula is a misnomer that came about because of how much nebulas resembled giant, gaseous planets when looked through a telescope in the 1700s. Rather, what we see in this image is the last breath of a dying star. 

When stars like the Sun are nearing the end of their lives, they let go of their gaseous outermost layers. As these clouds of stellar material move away from the central star they can acquire irregular and complex shapes. This complexity is evident in the faint scattered gas you see at the centre of the image. But there is also beautiful symmetry in PK 329-02.2, as the two bright blue spiral arms perfectly align with the two stars at the centre of the nebula. 

It may look like the spiral arms are connected, but it is the stars that are companions. They are part of a visual binary, though only the one at the upper right gave rise to the nebula. While the stars will continue to orbit each other for millions or billions of years, the nebula – and its spiral arms – will spread out from the centre and eventually fade away over the next few thousands of years.

German: You capitalize the first word in a sentence, names and additions to names, nouns and nominalisations :)
English: You Capitalize the beginning of the sentence and that’s it! Except it’s a name. Or it’s a adjective that belongs to a proper noun that might or might not be capitalized except the adjective is deep enough in the language to not be capitalized. Days of the week and month of the year are capitalized. Names of planets are capitalized except it’s earth which is not to be capitalized but sometimes is, non-planet objects are not capitalized. Occupations are not titles and therefore unlike titles not capitalized. The Bible is capitalized. The national anthem is not. Landmarks are capitalized when they are manmade or outstandingly noticeable, so are territories and structures. Chemical elements are not capitalized. Things the government does are capitalized but not events as long as they are not historical; capitalism is not capitalized. Brand names and companies are capitalized except the name they registered is not capitalized except in some cases where brand name is at the beginning of a sentence it might or might not be capitalized.
