Zeta Oph: Runaway Star


Like a ship plowing through cosmic seas, runaway star Zeta Ophiuchi produces the arcing interstellar bow wave or bow shock seen in this stunning infrared portrait. In the false-color view, bluish Zeta Oph, a star about 20 times more massive than the Sun, lies near the center of the frame, moving toward the left at 24 kilometers per second. Its strong stellar wind precedes it, compressing and heating the dusty interstellar material and shaping the curved shock front. Around it are clouds of relatively undisturbed material. What set this star in motion? Zeta Oph was likely once a member of a binary star system, its companion star was more massive and hence shorter lived. When the companion exploded as a supernova catastrophically losing mass, Zeta Oph was flung out of the system. About 460 light-years away, Zeta Oph is 65,000 times more luminous than the Sun and would be one of the brighter stars in the sky if it weren't surrounded by obscuring dust. The image spans about 1.5 degrees or 12 light-years at the estimated distance of Zeta Ophiuchi.

Green Wheel Rotary Hydroponic Garden - Design Libero

Derived from technology first developed by NASA to allow astronauts to grow food in zero-gravity, this rotary growing machine has been altered to suit modern residences. The circular growing surface allows for a maximised surface area around the light source, which is placed closer to the plants. This makes the most of the light without need for further energy input. Coco fiber is placed within the structure to function as a support for the plants and their roots.
