Obama Presidency 2010

December 31, 2010

In here just a few of pictures that I think interesting to share.

……tried to include photographs that show President Obama in a variety of behind-the-scenes situations and ones that also represent the successes and challenges he faced during the year. A few playful moments, some with his family, are also included. I wrote first-person captions to accompany each photograph to hopefully give the viewer some added context where needed. Pete Souza

It is a very heart-warming pictures, showing Obama in unofficial condition. There is nothing to say, just watch the pictures.

Ballistic Invading Stars

December 26, 2010

NASA

The phenomenon is similar to that seen when a speeding boat pushes through water on a lake, the ‘bullet’ star travels through the dense gas and powerful stellar winds.

“Finding these stars is a complete surprise because we were not looking for them. When I first saw the images, I said ‘Wow. This is like a bullet speeding through the interstellar medium.’ Hubble’s sharp ‘eye’ reveals the structure and shape of these bow shocks.”

Depending on their distance from Earth, the ‘bullet-nosed’ could be 100 billion to a trillion miles wide (the equivalent of 17 to 170 solar system diameters).

Assuming their youthful phase lasts only a million years and they are moving at roughly 112,000 miles an hour, the stars have traveled about 160 light-years.

There are two possible ways this phenomenon happened. One way is if one star in a binary system exploded as a supernova and the partner got kicked out. Another scenario is a collision between two binary star systems.  One or more of these stars could have picked up energy from the interaction and escaped the cluster.
