  1. Gents NASA's funding is not bottomless indeed far from it and its resources have been cut over the years so serious thought has to be given for each and every mission. I have no doubt their budget for the next few years at atleast has already been used or ear marked on in progress or soon to be missions. The idea they will just build a launch some sort of space craft within a few months just to chase the whim that an object they already feel they have a fair understanding of may just be a spacecraft is ...well honestly ridiculous. Its exactly the same reason they didnt divert huge amounts of funds and resources chasing the silly notion of the face and pyramids on Mars. Science not wishful thinking.
  2. Indeed it does seem to display a very similar warp as that of Andromeda. I wonder if the two galaxies have interacted in the past and are now coming back for a second gravitational pass.
  3. Hubble is a amazing bit of kit but has past its best before date. Im sure it actually was due to be decommissioned quite a while back but has proved so worthy its been pushed beyond its limits. Another one of those tremendous pieces of engineering that way outperforms its expectations.
  4. Well i believe Hubbles iconic image taken in 1995 was the first to capture the Pillars of creation in any detail. There were undoubtedly images of the Eagle Nebula before that but the Pillars of Creation were not a target of any specific significance until Hubbles image.
  5. There is so much about that is wrong but lets start with: Officially ‘speaking’, aliens don’t exist, and we’ve never been contacted by beings, not from Earth. That’s according to scientists and researchers who maintain that life on Earth is unique. Well they are surely not very scientific scientists that would say "Officially aliens dont exist" surely they can only say we currently have no evidence of their existence. And why is this guy getting publicity? is it because he is a "Harvard" astronomer?
  6. Its incredible how the moons orbiting the same planet can be so different. The odd shapes of Pan, the relative smoothness of Epimetheus and the rugged face of Mimas. Fascinating.
  7. I cant tell if this thread is about maths or Quatum Particles as it seems to have the properties of both at the same time.
  8. Very nice dont think i have ever seen the bug before.
  9. Very nice, no plans to combine the data?
  10. Well i was just toying a bit and do get your point but as we are now on the subject i still have some issues with it. So the point being if you have a infinite number of positive integers and a infinite number of negative integers they can both exist and be added to still make a infinite number of integers? But surely that analogy is (in theory at least) a possibility in reality. If you had an infinite amount of matter and then had a infinite amount of anti matter you could have both and still have both infinities albeit they may have to reside in alternate universes, but none the less if multiverse theory ever proves to be correct it would be a possibility in reality.
  11. the orignal image is really lovely, great depth and a real sense of scale.
  12. Thats incredible Sara, was going to make a joke about not being your work but decided against it. Its gorgeous such detail and colour. 47.5 hrs crikey oh to have such wonderful skies.
