No general topic on space yet? Dude, space freaking rules.

Here's a picture of it:








Yep, endless black. Awesome, right?

Here's one more, with a couple of stars:

Awesome, right?

Ok, so for real: space. I like it because it's so endless and just so overwhelming. I like it because there's plenty of great music it, our individual lives and the earth and the milky way and everything else is so goddamn small in comparison. It's full of fire balls (stars), comets, planets etc.

They're saying space travel should be possible (for commercial purposes) somewhere in 2014. You'll be shot about 100km high, for roughly 70,000. Sounds like a great idea to me, if I can ever such a thing I'm definitely going for it.

What about you all? Discuss! (Or post awesome pictures of supernovas and such, but please, think about their size.)

And no, I'm not on drugs.

DAMMIT! I forgot MS has auto-shrink for posts (my 'stars' should've been seperated). And the first post should've been black. Goddamn, my day is ruined.

Lol, I thought that was the intended effect, would have been quite funny.

But yeah, I'm a big fan of space myself, love scifi movies, novels, tv shows, comics [galctus and his heralds stuff; cosmics etc]

Wanted to be a cosmologist when I was younger but lost interest in sciences' at college and became more interested in Humanities and Language :/

I'm a sucker for some good space sutff, I mean... when I'm really bored I use to just read random wikipedia articles just about space.

I mean... Just look at this:

Recently i bumped into some info about the new James Webb space telescope. It looks very promising & high tech. It will be hubbles' successor, and it may be soon operational (2015 approximately -launch date).


Here's a comparison -mirrors- from wikipedias' article

I love space. For me it's the most beautiful thing in my life. I have a few albums in my facebook profile dedicated solely to space. :-D

Space rhymes with ace, place, grace, lace, race, pace, chase, case, base, mace and face. At least that's what Stephen Hawking said when I asked whether his seat was taken.

Space... the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starshi... oh right, yeah. Space is very cool. In fact it's nearly absolute zero if not for the background heat from the big bang. And I'm not talking about the big bang involving Annabel Chong either. I'm pretty sure there was more than just heat left over after that.

You made me google her. I found myself from wikipedia (finnish version) which was quite short, it went someway like this: Annabel Chong aka Grace Quek (22.5.1972, Singepore) is a Singaporean porn actress. She studied law in London by the aid of stipend. During this time she was gangraped. (...continues with a couple sentences..)

The Finnish version says she was "gangraped"? o.0

It does. http://fi.wikipedia.org/wiki/Annabel_Chong If you can somehow translate it. Anyway: joukkoraiskauksen uhriksi[1] = ...as a victim of a gangrape /(or group-).


Refers to this: 1. ↑ Sex: The Annabel Chong Story, 1999. Gough Lewis' document movie


Sounds like a mistranslation to me, she was "gangbanged" not "gangraped"...

Well...i'm not very excited about curiosity and it's "mission to mars" and this is part of the reason why



yeah all of those small dots both in the 2d and 3d models are galaxies, each one with billions of stars (and this model is not of the whole universe but of a small fraction, which we have seen with telescopes)...and as we speak our universe is expanding with a pace greater than the speed of light...and that pace is increasing with every passing moment...yeah
