The Facial expressions of Jensen Ackles are what I live for.
What the fuck is happening
OMG the last one XD Jensen’s face!
2012 is possibly the stupidest movie I have ever seen. Who wrote this movie and did they research anything before doing so? How does planet alignment make the sun hotter?! What??? Asia doesn’t get assaulted by earthquakes but floods to the top of Everest..??? WHAT?! Humanity decides that China (lol zinc) should build arcs to save the best of the best (rich Arab kings and politicians, I kid you not) and they decide to fly in animals from Africa at the last minute, through snowy Tibetan mountains… >___> hanging from helicopters. Just… no. There is a little thing called -130F that would kill them. Don’t waste the time to watch this movie, seriously, its not even worth the shits and giggles D8 lol
Resembling the hair in Botticelli’s famous portrait of the birth of Venus, an image from NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has captured softly glowing filaments streaming from hot young stars in a nearby nebula.
The image, presented by the Hubble Heritage Project, was taken in 1996 by Hubble’s Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2, designed and built by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif. The image is available online athttp://heritage.stsci.edu/2002/12/index.html or http://hubblesite.org/newscenter/archive/releases/2002/12/image/a/.
(Refer to original image) On the top right of the image is a source of its artistic likeness, a network of nebulous filaments surrounding the Wolf-Rayet star. This type of rare star is characterized by an exceptionally vigorous “wind” of charged particles. The shock of the wind colliding with the surrounding gas causes the gas to glow.
The Wolf-Rayet star is part of N44C, a nebula of glowing hydrogen gas surrounding young stars in the Large Magellanic Cloud. Visible from the Southern Hemisphere, the Large Magellanic Cloud is a small companion galaxy to the Milky Way.
What makes N44C peculiar is the temperature of the star that illuminates it. The most massive stars — those that are 10 to 50 times more massive than the Sun — have maximum temperatures of 30,000 to 50,000 degrees Celsius (54,000 to 90,000 degrees Fahrenheit). The temperature of this star is about 75,000 degrees Celsius (135,000 degrees Fahrenheit). This unusually high temperature may be due to a neutron star or black hole that occasionally produces X-rays but is now inactive.
N44C is part of a larger complex that includes young, hot, massive stars, nebulae, and a “superbubble” blown out by multiple supernova explosions. Part of the superbubble is seen in red at the very bottom left of the Hubble image.
The Space Telescope Science Institute is operated by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy, Inc., for NASA, under contract with the Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, MD. The Hubble Space Telescope is a project of international cooperation between NASA and the European Space Agency.
Am I crazy or do I see Odin wearing golden armor and a fucking helmet/crown here O_o
This is completely true -__-‘
Aries spending the lottery.
See, this is absolutely not true of me, I am extremely frugal, in fact, people make fun of how frugal I am XD
