NGC 2403 in Camelopardalis



Magnificent island universe NGC 2403 stands within the boundaries of the long-necked constellation Camelopardalis. Some 10 million light-years distant and about 50,000 light-years across, the spiral galaxy also seems to have more than its fair share of giant star forming HII regions, marked by the telltale reddish glow of atomic hydrogen gas. The giant HII regions are energized by clusters of hot, massive stars that explode as bright supernovae at the end of their short and furious lives. A member of the M81 group of galaxies, NGC 2403 closely resembles another galaxy with an abundance of star forming regions that lies within our own local galaxy group, M33 the Triangulum Galaxy. Spiky in appearance, bright stars in this colorful galaxy portrait of NGC 2403 lie in the foreground, within our own Milky Way.

Reblog this it could save a life



great now i feel million times less safe with a deadbolt



Reblogging for the comment



Guys, deadbolts aren’t totally safe. This is just one of several ways I’ve seen them opened (via YouTube videos). If you really want to be safe, consider investing in a flip-latch.


You can pick them up at ACE hardware (or any other hardware store), and you install them on the inside of the door on the doorframe. They flip and lock really tight (you typically have to lean your weight into the door to secure it) and they can’t be opened from the outside as far as I know.



Another reason I will never sleep easy in a hotel for the rest of my life.

Why did the dinosaurs die?

About 66 million years ago the Cretaceous–Paleogene (K–Pg) extinction event wiped out about 80% of life on Earth, and no one is exactly sure what caused it. Here’s a list of the current theories though!



  1. Asteroid/comet — metal and rock/ ice, dust, rocky materials and organic compounds

  2. Global firestorm (caused by asteroid)

  3. Hypercanes, also known as giant giant hurricanes, which not only devastated those who came in their paths but also were high enough to damage the ozone layer

  4. Gradual extinction and competition with mammals (aka the boring theory)

  5. Continental drift, which changed habitats and climates as ocean patterns changed

  6. Sea level changes

  7. Disease

  8. Volcanoes spewing sulfur for 10,000 years

  9. Any of these combining in a short amount of time

Boarding the Soyuz Spacecraft on Launch Day



Expedition 43 Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko of the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos), top, NASA astronaut Scott Kelly, center, and Russian cosmonaut Gennady Padalka of Roscosmos wave farewell as they board the Soyuz TMA-16M spacecraft ahead of their launch to the International Space Station, Friday, March 27, 2015 in Baikonur, Kazakhstan. Kelly and Kornienko will spend a year in space and return to Earth on Soyuz TMA-18M in March 2016. Most expeditions to the space station last four to six months. By doubling the length of this mission, researchers hope to better understand how the human body reacts and adapts to long-duration spaceflight. This knowledge is critical as NASA looks toward human journeys deeper into the solar system, including to and from Mars, which could last 500 days or longer. The Soyuz is set to lift off at 3:42 p.m. EDT, Friday, March 27 on a six-hour, four-orbit flight to the station. Image Credit: NASA/Bill Ingalls
