Astronomy Picture of the Day

Spiral Galaxy M66 from Hubble

Explanation: It’s always nice to get a new view of an old friend. This stunning Hubble Space Telescope image of nearby spiral galaxy M66 is just that. A spiral galaxy with a small central bar, M66 is a member of the Leo Galaxy Triplet, a group of three galaxies about 30 million light years from us. The Leo Triplet is a popular target for relatively small telescopes, in part because M66 and its galactic companions M65 and NGC 3628 all appear separated by about the angular width of a full moon. The featured image of M66 was taken by Hubble to help investigate the connection between star formation and molecular gas clouds. Clearly visible are bright blue stars, pink ionized hydrogen clouds — sprinkled all along the outer spiral arms, and dark dust lanes in which more star formation could be hiding.

The Denver airplane engine flying apart, this is the THIRD time it has happened.  I trust United and the FAA.  Maybe they need some English speaking maintenance workers.

This may or may not be a cause for a full scale airplane alarm.  Maybe it is just the planes with numbers in their names that are losing more parts than a Conservative Hollywood actor.

Maybe after a year in storage, they should have cleaned out the rat infested engines.

The airlines make up for failed maintenance with releasing private information.  Nancy & Schiff must be involved.

The Goofy Cat:  I sure do, and it isn’t nice.  Disney is one of the 6 or 7 vicious monopolies in America.  They have laid off thousands of citizens to hire people from other countries.  Here is who they are.
