Sharpless 308: Star Bubble


Blown by fast winds from a hot, massive star, this cosmic bubble is huge. Cataloged as Sharpless 2-308 it lies some 5,200 light-years away toward the constellation of the Big Dog (Canis Major) and covers slightly more of the sky than a Full Moon. That corresponds to a diameter of 60 light-years at its estimated distance. The massive star that created the bubble, a Wolf-Rayet star, is the bright one near the center of the nebula. Wolf-Rayet stars have over 20 times the mass of the Sun and are thought to be in a brief, pre-supernova phase of massive star evolution. Fast winds from this Wolf-Rayet star create the bubble-shaped nebula as they sweep up slower moving material from an earlier phase of evolution. The windblown nebula has an age of about 70,000 years. Relatively faint emission captured in the expansive image is dominated by the glow of ionized oxygen atoms mapped to a blue hue.

Oração para acalmar o coração

Espírito Santo, neste momento venho fazer aqui a oração para acalmar o coração porque confesso, ele
anda muito agitado, ansioso e as vezes triste, por situações difíceis que passo em minha vida.
Sua palavra diz que o Espirito Santo, que é o próprio Senhor,
tem como papel consolar dos corações.
Então te peço, Espírito Santo consolador,
vem acalmar o meu coração, e ma fazer esquecer dos problemas da vida que tentam me derrubar.
Vem, Espírito Santo! Sobre o meu coração, trazendo consolo, e fazer com que ele se acalme.
Preciso de sua presença em meu ser, pois sem Ti, eu não sou nada, mas, com o Senhor eu posso todas as coisas no Senhor poderoso que me fortalece!
Creio, e declaro em nome de Jesus Cristo assim:
Meu coração se acalme! Meu coração se acalme!
Meu coração receba paz, alívio e refrigério!

Em nome de Jesus Cristo Amém!

But I thought the war ended in 1776? I mean, this is awesome, but why were there british soldiers attacking?

A lot happened in 1776, but the British didn’t consider the revolution to be over until September 3, 1783.

Business Insider did an article about what will happen when Queen Elizabeth II dies. One thing that struck me was her sheer longevity – she does not even come close to comparing with any other head of state of a major nation.

historical-nonfiction:

To finish off today’s theme of “mythology” I wrote a post on the Polynesian concept of mana. Check it out at historical-nonfiction.com

Interesting, but why do you talk about mana as if it is in the past? Mana is very much alive in New Zealand and is used to talk about powerful and respected people (especially Maori people) all the time. Here in NZ, we just say “tapu” without the s, but of course I can’t speak for all of Polynesia. Mana and tapu aren’t historical concepts.

aye historical-nonfiction you should really amend your post. Don’t talk about mana in the past - you wouldn’t talk about mindfulness or prayer or spiritual energy in the past tense, and though those concepts don’t really have anything to do with mana, it’s the same principle: you should talk about a concept/practice/reality that IS an important part of several different cultures in the PRESENT TENSE. I’m sure if you check out the posts of nerdfaceangst you’ll get a lot of relevant info to correct your post.

^^^^^^^Listen to the Polynesian people there.

The main reason people think it’s ok to use ‘mana’ outside of its meaning is that they think it’s in the past and not relevant to anyone anymore. 

They are wrong. 

We Hawaiians still exchange Mana … It is most certainly not okay to say that it is in the past. It is integral to Pacific Islanders and is very prevalent in our cultures.

First off: sorry. I did not mean to imply that mana is not still used today. I used the literary past tense when talking about mythology in all my posts yesterday. For instance, I described in past tense Aboriginal beliefs about how the world started, and Hindu beliefs about a great flood, both of which are very much believed today. It was a stylistic choice that was not meant to imply anything. For the future, I will try to be careful about using present tense for present beliefs – and please let me know if I slip up!

salon:

People seem really excited about the upcoming deployment about a new system created to clean up the ocean’s floating plastic. Judging from the headlines, that’s in large part because it was invented by a child, now a 20-year-old man named Boyan Slat, who crowdfunded the effort and got a team of 100 scientists, engineers and designers to help him bring it to fruition. It’s also jut a cool-looking, potential solution to a major problem that we hear about a lot, but are sort of helpless to counteract: we’re dumping an estimated 8 million tons of plastic into the oceans every year.

The brain child of a Dutch teen is setting out to clean up the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Will it work?
