Star Formation in the Tarantula Nebula 
The largest, most violent star forming region known in the whole Local Group of galaxies lies in our neighboring galaxy the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). Were the Tarantula Nebula at the distance of the Orion Nebula — a local star forming region — it would take up fully half the sky. Also called 30 Doradus, the red and pink gas indicates a massive emission nebula, although supernova remnants and dark nebula also exist there. The bright knot of stars left of center is called R136 and contains many of the most massive, hottest, and brightest stars known. The above image is one of the largest mosaics ever created by observations of the Hubble Space Telescope and has revealed unprecedented details of this enigmatic star forming region. The image is being released to celebrate the 22nd anniversary of Hubble’s launch.

The Right Wing loves their “characters”. You see it in their wannabe hunters and cowboys on TV, and in politics. #Reagan #WBush #Palin
A shorter Tea Party/Right Wing: white males can do no wrong.

What the hell can you expect out of retards?

It’s not all their fault - they spend so much time listening to right wing radio and watching fox news they have no idea what reality is. They have allowed themselves to be brainwashed. Of course, facts don’t work on these people so, I guess, stupid is as stupid does.

Strange attractors, take a look in full resolution at this page (by Brian Wissman, The University of Hawai‘i System).

I’ve never been female. But I have been black my whole life. I can perhaps offer some insight from that perspective. There are many similar social issues related to access to equal opportunity that we find in the black community, as well as the community of women in a white male dominate society…

When I look at — throughout my life — I’ve known that I wanted to do astrophysics since I was 9 years old…I got to see how the world around me reacted to my expressions of these ambitions. All I can say is, the fact that I wanted to be a scientist, an astrophysicist was hands down the path of most resistance through the forces of society.

Anytime I expressed this interest, teachers would say, ‘Oh, don’t you wanna be an athlete?’ I want to become someone that was outside of the paradigm of expectations of the people in power. Fortunately, my depth of interest of the universe was so deep and so fuel enriched that everyone of these curve balls that I was thrown, and fences built in front of me, and hills that I had to climb, I just reach for more fuel, and I just kept going.

Now, here I am, one of the most visible scientists in the land, and I wanna look behind me and say, ‘Where are the others who might have been this,’ and they’re not there! …I happened to survive and others did not simply because of forces of society that prevented it at every turn. At every turn.

…My life experience tells me that when you don’t find blacks, when you don’t find women in the sciences, I know that these forces are real, and I had to survive them in order to get where I am today.

So before we start talking about genetic differences, you gotta come up with a system where there’s equal opportunity, then we can have that conversation.

Selections from photographer Jonathan Singer’s book Botanica Magnifica: Portraits of the World’s Most Extraordinary Flowers and Plants 

About the book:

Jonathan Singer has captured some of the world’s most endangered flowers in remarkable detail and in a light that evokes the paintings of great Dutch masters. This magnificent work draws attention to the need for protecting its subjects and the ecosystems in which they grow. As a force for conservation, it belongs in the same category as the picture book that inspired it—John James Audubon’s Birds of America.
