Aurore boréale

The northern lights are more formally known as auroras, and are caused by interactions between the solar wind and the Earth's magnetic field.

And what is infinity? It is a word that we use to indicate the opening of our consciousness toward possibility beyond measure, tireless and beyond measure. —Antonin Artaud, from “To Have Done with the Judgment of God.”

Pillars of metallic dust in the Tarantula Nebula, an H II region in the Large Magellanic Cloud. It was originally thought to be a star, but in 1751 Nicolas Louis de Lacaille recognized its nebular nature.

Today marks the 47th anniversary of the moon landing. History remembers Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, but they're not the whole story.

The Aurora Borealis illuminates where the Torus field of the Earth intersects the surface of the sphere that centers it. We now know the Sun also has vortices at its poles as evidenced by recently discovered "coronal holes".   theories predict that every star in the universe is actually a black hole with a dual torus energy flow dynamic, so it comes as no surprise to find the sun has coronal holes.

How Far Are You Along The Cosmic Journey?

An everlasting collection of our stars produced, edited and captured by several artists. Originally compiled by delirium. It looks like puppy paw prints though :)



This incredible image put together by Reddit user Heaney555 gives us every single ship, launch system and craft that has ever helped propel man into outer space. The cool part about it is that every single one of them is illustrated to scale. As you can see the Saturn V rocket is pretty damn huge and so is the international space station when you compare the two, but whats surprising is the size of the space shuttle. Pretty tiny in the scheme of things... via Reddit
