Young White Dwarfs on the Fast Track

These images show young and old white dwarf stars — the burned-out relics of normal stars — in the ancient globular star cluster NGC 6397.

The image above, taken by a ground-based telescope, shows the dense swarm of hundreds of thousands of stars that make up the globular cluster. The white box outlines the location of the observations made by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope.

The close-up image below, taken by Hubble’s Advanced Camera for Surveys, reveals young white dwarfs less than 800 million years old and older white dwarfs between 1.4 and 3.5 billion years old. The Hubble researchers distinguished the younger from the older white dwarfs based on their color and brightness. The younger white dwarfs are hotter and therefore bluer and brighter than the older ones.

The astronomers were surprised to find young white dwarfs far away from the cluster’s core. They had assumed that the youngsters would reside at the center and migrate over time to the cluster’s outskirts. The astronomers proposed that the cluster stars that burn out as white dwarfs are given a boost that propels them to the edge of the cluster.

Madonna

A bio of Madonna is strictly speaking superfluous for me and I could not leave it unfinished; but wanted to at least publish it tonight.  To be reworked substantially over the coming months, some of the info was from a norweigan website, so translating is somewhat ‘tricky’ so do check back on this ‘super colossal’ posting :) As one of the greatest artists ever over the last 20 years. One of the leading names of our  occasion Music and for her time in Music, style, in fashion & dancing.  Halfway through life, she is still a role model for today’s youth, and a trendsetter in the fashion industry.

Nobody can build the bridge for you to walk across the river of life, no one but you yourself alone. There are, to be sure, countless paths and bridges and demi-gods which would carry you across this river; but only at the cost of yourself; you would pawn yourself and lose. There is in the world only one way, on which nobody can go, except you: where does it lead? Do not ask, go along with it.

Excerpt:

Once again, I find myself wanting to ‘write’ something on a favorite artist, then I stumble across someone who has written a great story so kudos to Jessica with the following story (at the link).  I, on the other hand am not in the ‘Journalism’ trade, nor have some ‘connection’ to the music industry.  I first came across Hush via my Myspace, around 5 years ago now and absolutely loved his music.  Being that I have so many favorite bands, solo artists and genre’s of, as well it would be near impossible to research every one of them in depth.  This is why I chose to publish this story here as opposed to my Music WordPress, as I was almost going to, then knew since it was not to be a brief outline and some video’s I’d post it here…  As mentioned before, I enjoy keeping this blog as a collation of some favorite topics and such as a reference point. number is

Part of what I had found out a few years ago now is that he does a great deal for abandoned / stray dogs (including ‘Detroit Dog Rescue’) The number of these dogs; simply astronomical in his area.. Detroit. I watched a video produced by him,  you’ll find this and another on the topic, at the end of the posting.. it will send chills through the toughest out there, I swear.   View Post

Find Song Lyrics

When it’s bugging you ‘no end’… you remember part, if not all of a song, you can hum or sing it… but ‘What’s that damn song’!! You can let it go, forget about it entirely, then it comes back to haunt you.. sound familiar? At this website are some great lyric links, all of which I’ve tried at some point that are very reliable.  Music is great, but  it can also drive you nuts at times! There’s also video’s of artists such as Pink, Oasis, Jonsi (of Sigur Ros) all forgetting lyrics on stage…
