What Did Hubble See on Your Birthday?
Check your birthday

Interacting Galaxies Arp 297

Arp 297 is a pair of interacting galaxies that consists of NGC 5754, the large spiral at the top, and NGC 5752, the smaller companion at the bottom left. NGC 5754's internal structure has hardly been disturbed, but it does have some kinked arms just beyond its inner ring.


Hubble saw these spectacular galaxies on my birthday.

Somehow I doubt that since the character you play on this boards balls haven't dropped yet, and IRL your pecker probably stopped working years ago

Andromeda is my favorite galaxy. With approximately 1 trillion stars, it’s enormous and most likely has billions of earth-like planets.

My last birthday ticked of a bucket list item and wormholed to Alpha-Centuri

Nice sky.

The A&M fans all wanted to see Uranus.

I think Alpha Centauri A and B are more interesting than Proxima. The average distance between them is about 23 astronomical units (AU) — a little more than the distance between the sun and Uranus. Any planets orbiting either would have spectacular skies with two bright suns and Proxima, the red dwarf.

No one knows why the Great Red Spot has persisted for so long. When I was a high school student, I imagined it was a moon that was orbiting within Jupiter’s upper atmosphere and was causing the storm.

Well, I’ve shown my arse quite often in my lifetime but never to an Aggie. I’ve only known one and he was a nice guy.

re: What Did Hubble See on Your Birthday?
I think spiral galaxies are enigmatic. Their stars appear to be spiraling into the black holes at their centers but we now know this isn’t the case.

The gravity of Dark Matter is keeping the stars more or less in their orbits about the center, and the stars at the edge of the galaxies are orbiting at the same speed as those closest to the center. This leads me to think that galaxies such as the Whirlpool might once have actually been sending their stars spiraling towards the center and the Dark Matter appeared and stopped them in their tracks, literally.

You and I, and every other living thing, are exactly the same age. We started living some 3.8 billion years ago and have persisted to this day. We are older than anyone and anything that has died before us.
