Explanation: Gorgeous spiral galaxy M33 seems to have more than its fair share of glowing hydrogen gas. A prominent member of the local group of galaxies, M33 is also known as the Triangulum Galaxy and lies a mere 3 million light-years away. The galaxy’s inner 30,000 light-years or so are shown in this magnificent 25 panel telescopic mosaic. Based on image data from space and ground-based telescopes, the portrait of M33 shows off the galaxy’s reddish ionized hydrogen clouds or HII regions. Sprawling along loose spiral arms that wind toward the core, M33’s giant HII regions are some of the largest known stellar nurseries, sites of the formation of short-lived but very massive stars. Intense ultraviolet radiation from the luminous, massive stars ionizes the surrounding hydrogen gas and ultimately produces the characteristic red glow. To enhance this image, broadband data was used to produce a color view of the galaxy and combined with narrowband data recorded through a hydrogen-alpha filter. That filter transmits the light of the strongest visible hydrogen emission line.

This is self evident.  The White House press are nasty people.  The White House Pest Control Officer should start delousing the press every day.


The Editor:  Is this about the poor illegals coming from nineteen  ( 19 ) countries trying to get into America from our Southern Border, LL ?

No, Yes, Maybe Cat:  Unfortunately no.  Anyone with feeling should feel sorry for the poor, but America isn’t even taking care of her poor and sick.

I’m speaking of these people.  They can criticize, joke, lie, and whine but they will make few decisions that affect anyone but their family and a few Marxist dictators.  The following video is a repeat.

They won’t have Cadillac One, Marine One, or Air Force One.  The Sphinx apologizes for the appearance  of War Criminal Obama, the apology-I’m sorry President.

This is how far the DemocRATS will go to control your thoughts and speech, read the book titled 1984.  

They want total control.

Today’s Accidental Invention…Silly Putty

During World War II, engineer James Wright was tasked with inventing a cheap alternative to synthetic rubber. While working on finding a substitute, Wright dropped boric acid into silicone oil and discovered that the resulting product was stretchy and bouncy, with the added bonus of being able to copy words from newspaper clippings and comic strips. However, Wright’s employers weren’t impressed by his “nutty putty,” and it wasn’t until a few years later that businessman Peter Hodgson saw the potential in it.
