ideal hogwarts students:

  • aromantic wizards being absolutely immune to amortentia, it only smelling like the ingredients put into it when they smell it, and teaching other students how to identify the stuff on any food or drink

Spiral… Star?This image shows the star R Sculptoris through data collected by the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA). The data, which appeared in the academic paper “Unexpectedly large mass loss during the thermal pulse cycle of the red giant R Sculptoris” (Nature, 2012), was the first to discover spiral structure around a red giant star.At a distance of about 1500 light years, the interesting spiral structure might be caused by an as yet unknown companion star orbiting R Sculptoris and disturbing the intervening material.It is not unusual for red giants to exhibit shell-like structures. Red giants undergo periodic (every 10,000 to 50,000 years), but short lived (maybe 200 years or so) explosive helium burning around the stellar core. A thermal pulse leads to material being blown off the surface of the star, which in turn creates a gas-dust shell.-CBImage Credit: ALMA (ESO/NAOJ/NRAO)More InformationLink to Academic Article (choose arXiv for free access/non-subscribers)

Very insightful, thank you


Panda researchers in China wear panda costumes to give mother-like feeling to a lonely baby panda who lost her mother [x]

without context it looks like some guy disguised himself as a panda so he could sneak into their panda community and now he’s making a quick getaway with the baby panda

One minute I held the keyNext the walls were closed on meAnd I discovered that my castles standUpon pillars of salt and pillars of sand
