How to cast on and bind off without leaving "ears" or the bumps Note: after endless googling when I first started knitting, I already do these 2 things, but it's always good to see a nice clear reminder of why and how.
This planetary nebula, Mz3, is being cast off by a star similar to our Sun. The 1000-kilometer per second speed of the expelled gas, the light-year long length of the structure, and the magnetism of the star visible at the nebula's center, all imply Mz3 is hiding a second, dimmer star that orbits close in to the bright star. A competing hypothesis holds that the central star's own spin and magnetic field are channeling the gas. (ESA, NASA's Hubble, JPL-CalTech)
What's On My Mind journal page - take a load off....write it down. [Honestly, it really works to jot down your feelings. It helps to get your thoughts in order - to clear the way so you can move forward.- and to prioritise what's important and for you to cast aside/let go of, troubling things of the past which are stifling your life. ;) Mo] More
