The Boy Inna The Bubble, by Father Guido Sarducci

Blown by the wind from a massive star, this interstellar apparition has a surprisingly familiar shape. Cataloged as NGC 7635, it is also known simply as The Bubble Nebula. Although it looks delicate, the 7 light-year diameter bubble offers evidence of violent processes at work. Above and left of the Bubble's center is a hot, O-type star, several hundred thousand times more luminous and some 45 times more massive than the Sun.....

  1. Kid...this stuff is beyond the scope of human understanding. I read that recently a star was found whose light took 50 billion years to reach us. I mean...Jesus Christ....I can't fathom the last 50 fugging years let alone 50 billion at the speed of lght?
    OT...THANKS FOR UPDATING THE SIDE BAR. WHAT TOTAL SHIT HEAD, LOSERS AND MISERABLE POS WE HAVE TO LIVE WITH.

    1. IMP, It really is beyond the scope of understanding. Especially when you realize that the content, at normal size is impossible to take in, but the content at the size many orders below the microscopic level are there also.

      Have a Great Weekend !

  2. I don't know for certain, but it sure seems as if the Clintons have been around for 50 billion light years. I would really appreciate it if you could do something about that and then we can concentrate on bubble nebula and other really interesting things ...

  4. That looks like a human cell. Accidental? I don't think so.

  5. God's creations are so beautiful, but I have to say that the size of space makes me feel utterly insignificant. That said, I am beginning to worry about Sam, though.

    1. Mustang, I feel insignificant a lot. My friends tend to pull me out of it regularly enough.

  7. If you have ever read anything on the Progressives blogs, you will know that they love to hate! They even love their hate. They revel in their hate. You can only belong to their little cliche if you hate the same way they hate. They write their hate on their posts, on their blogs, and on everyone else’s blogs. . That’s real hate. That’s their way to hate! They hate everyone who does not think the way that they think. If you are of another way of thinking, or of another political persuasion, then they will hate you! .

    Bitterness belongs to those who write negativity and hate everyday. Being close minded is the trait of those who can find no fault in the person, or thing they support. Humans are not perfect, but they write their leader (Obama) can do no wrong. He is like the Messiah . They believe that one person is a political messiah. They are bitter, hate filled, and wrong. Wrong about their leader. Wrong about their behavior to protect their leader. Truly, politically immature and personally immature. And therefor they Hate our current President. Yes they Hate Donald trump and they can not wait until he is either impeached or overthrown.
    It seems the followers of “hope and change” have no hope and expect no change. Of course not, they are to wrapped up in their hate. If you have ever bothered to read the crap, and filth that is on the Progressive Eruptions blog, you will wittiness the real meaning of Hate!
    You just can’t imagine the vile comments written there by the author of that disgusting blog. And the comments written by the few readers that are left there

    1. Tom, this is why I'd never go and look at any such blog. It would be like going to a nice restaurant and asking to be seated to the obnoxious loud kids with deadbeat parents. So we don't go there. I hope you can find a way to ignore them, these much better things to think about.
