Hidden Galaxy IC 342


Similar in size to large, bright spiral galaxies in our neighborhood, IC 342 is a mere 10 million light-years distant in the long-necked, northern constellation Camelopardalis. A sprawling island universe, IC 342 would otherwise be a prominent galaxy in our night sky, but it is hidden from clear view and only glimpsed through the veil of stars, gas and dust clouds along the plane of our own Milky Way galaxy. Even though IC 342's light is dimmed by intervening cosmic clouds, this sharp telescopic image traces the galaxy's own obscuring dust, blue star clusters, and glowing pink star forming regions along spiral arms that wind far from the galaxy's core. IC 342 may have undergone a recent burst of star formation activity and is close enough to have gravitationally influenced the evolution of the local group of galaxies and the Milky Way.

manwhobears: historical-nonfiction: President Theodore...

historical-nonfiction:

President Theodore Roosevelt’s son, Theodore Roosevelt III, fought in the the initial landing on Utah Beach during D-Day, and received the Medal of Honor for his actions there.

Theodore Roosevelt Jr. did, not Theodore Roosevelt III who was Jr’s son.

Theodore Roosevelt II, properly called Theodore Roosevelt Jr., was actually the Teddy Roosevelt we all remember as the tattoo-bearing, hill-assaulting, Amazon rainforest-exploring president! Of course, Teddy Roosevelt became much more famous than the philanthropist father he was named after. As such, most people forgot he was a Jr.

Theodore Roosevelt III, Teddy Roosevelt’s son, was therefore often called Theodore Jr.

Interestingly, Theodore Roosevelt III had a son…and named him Theodore Roosevelt. Because Jr. apparently loved being called the wrong name. Technically a “IV,” the grandson of Teddy Roosevelt was so commonly called “III” that it’s the heading of his wikipedia page!

Outra múmia ‘alienígena’ foi descoberta no Peru

Outro corpo em Nazca, Peru, agora está sendo investigado.

Embora similar em algumas maneiras com o anterior, conhecido como “Maria”, este novo espécime parece ser uma espécie completamente diferente.

mumia-corpo

O novo corpo, que tem um tamanho bem menor e três dedos, foi encontrado sem a cabeça e tem sido chamada de “Vitoria” pelos pesquisadores locais.

Um vídeo recente, publicado pela Gaia, mostra o que parece ser os restos mortais de um pequeno ser. Segundo os cientistas, a mumificação ocorreu com a criatura sentada.

mumia-pele-lagarto

Durante o processo de coleta de amostras, os pesquisadores afirmaram ter descoberto que a pele têm uma coloração parecida com um lagarto.

Uma verificação mais aprofundada do pescoço revelou a presença de nervos e artérias – o que pode comprovar a autenticidade do cadáver.

mumia-arterias

Os primeiros resultados da datação de carbono indicam que corpo de Vitoria seja 700 anos mais novo o carpo de Maria.

Múmia alienígena descoberta no Peru é real?

Um corpo mumificado de três dedos teria sido encontrado em Nazca, Peru, com o vídeo do suposto corpo enviado para o YouTube.

No entanto, os pesquisadores expressaram dúvidas sobre a descoberta, com alguns chamando de “fraude”.

De acordo com o site Gaia, o corpo, que tem 1,50 metros de altura e parece ser um humano, tem três dedos longos, um crânio alongado e sem orelhas ou nariz.

O professor Konstantin Korotkov, da Universidade de São Petersburgo, na Rússia, descreveu o corpo como pertencente a uma “outra criatura, outro humanoide”.

“Nós vamos deixar você saber se é humano, se não é humano”, disse um representante da Gaia no vídeo.

Jaime Maussan, uma jornalista investigativo do México, apresentou a descoberta aos cineastas de Gaia, que então investigou com uma equipe maior.

Duvidas sobre a credibilidade do corpo apareceu imediatamente. “Respeite minha opinião, isso é FAKE!”, Escreveu um comentarista no video do YouTube.

“Relatado para o MIB”, brincou outro, referindo o famoso filme de comédia de ficção científica “Men in Black”.

Em uma entrevista com The Express , o autor britânico de OVNI Nigel Watson descreveu o corpo como “um modelo de gesso” e “falso perfeito”.

Apesar de exemplos de crânios alongados terem sido encontrados no Peru, que datam de milhares de anos, os especialistas atribuem isso a uma prática antiga de deformação craniana artificial.

No vídeo, o corpo parece estar coberto com um pó branco para preservar os restos.

O carbono que data do corpo parece mostrar que é de 245 a 410 dC, de acordo com os jornalistas da Gaia, mas testes adicionais estão em andamento, incluindo o sequenciamento de DNA.

“Moral maxims are surprisingly useful on occasions when we can invent little else to justify our actions.”

-

Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin (1799 to 1827), Russian poet, playwright, and novelist of the Romantic era who is considered by many to be the greatest Russian poet and the founder of modern Russian literature.  Pushkin was born into Russian nobility in Moscow.  He published his first poem at the age of fifteen, and was widely recognized by the literary establishment by the time of his graduation from the Tsarskoye Selo Lyceum.  While under the strict surveillance of the Tsar’s political police and unable to publish, Pushkin wrote his most famous play, the drama Boris Godunov.  His novel in verse, Eugene Onegin, was serialized between 1825 and 1832.

Pushkin was fatally wounded at age 28 in a duel with his brother-in-law, Georges-Charles de Heeckeren d'Anthès, a French officer serving with the Chevalier Guard Regiment. d'Anthès had attempted to seduce the poet’s wife, Natalia Gonchorova Pushkina

Winds Trigger Pond Growth


Wind is a force to be reckoned with. It can stir up monsoons, carry dust thousands of miles, and sculpt rock into sinuous arches. But sometimes, the effects of wind go unnoticed for years, like when it carves away slowly at the edges of a pond.
