NGC 7635: Bubble in a Cosmic Sea


Do you see the bubble in the center? Seemingly adrift in a cosmic sea of stars and glowing gas, the delicate, floating apparition in this widefield view is cataloged as NGC 7635 - The Bubble Nebula. A mere 10 light-years wide, the tiny Bubble Nebula and the larger complex of interstellar gas and dust clouds are found about 11,000 light-years distant, straddling the boundary between the parental constellations Cepheus and Cassiopeia. Also included in the breathtaking vista is open star cluster M52 (upper left), some 5,000 light-years away. The featured image spans about two degrees on the sky corresponding to a width of about 375 light-years at the estimated distance of the Bubble Nebula.

An empress by any other name

Empress Cixi was originally Concubine Yi. When she and the dowager empress Zhen successfully staged a coup to overthrow the regents of the 5-year-old Emperor Tongzhi (Concubine Yi’s son), both women took new names to mark the event. The Dowager Empress Zhen became “Ci'an” meaning “kindly and serene.” Concubine Yi became “Cixi” meaning “kindly and joyous.” This would remain her name until her death, forty-seven year later.

Um vídeo mostrando o que se parece com uma mulher sentada na parte de trás de um carro em alta velocidade se tornou viral nesta semana.

Autoridades estão tentando contactar o proprietário do veículo em um esforço para chegar ao fundo do mistério.

A Potential New Viking Site Found in Canada!

An expert in detecting buried structures from satellite images, Sarah Parcak, identified a second likely site on the southernmost tip of Newfoundland. Well-known is L’Anse aux Meadows is on the northern tip of the island. It was debated whether the sagas’ account of a place good for growing grapes was true. The new site, Point Rosee, broke ground in the summer of 2015. The dig found remains of turf walls and an ironworking fireplace. This is not solid evidence yet. The excavations could be evidence, for instance, of the Basque whalers who sheltered on the island from the early 1500s. But the excavations continue. Hopefully they will find more proof, one way or the other, about the Vikings’ exploration of America.
