The vagabonds.

The vagabonds.

Here’s to the mess ups,

The ones with the smudged mascara.

The ones with ripped jeans that shows their bruised kneecaps.

The ones with scarred hearts and fake smiles.

The ones who prefer walking alone into oblivion over crowded streets.

The one who prefer darkness over the light.

To the vagabonds.

The ones who’d rather ride in the backseat of a truck than drive in a limo.

The ones who feel they’re home when they hit the road,

Here’s to the tattered notebooks of human beings that have no title, but a story.

To the wanderers. The dreamers. The lovers.

You’re the best thing that has happened to this world.

The Highest Resolution Image ever seen in Astronomy

What do you get when you combine 15 radio telescopes on Earth and one in space? You get an enormous “virtual telescope” that is 63,000 miles across. And when you point it at a distant black hole, you get the highest resolution image every seen in astronomy.

Although it looks just like a big green blob, it’s actually an enormously energetic jet of matter streaming out of a black hole. And this black hole is 900 million light years away.

As reported at Popular Science, it required an array of 15 radio telescopes on Earth, and the Russian space telescope Spektr-R, to capture the image. This technique—called interferometry—is like creating a telescope that is 63,000 miles across. The detail it provides is like seeing a 50 cent coin on the Moon.

For perspective, the object in the image is 186 billion miles long, at minimum, and would just barely fit in the Oort Cloud.

The American Bald Eagle – National Geographic Documentary

– The bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus, from Greek hali “sea”, aiētos “eagle”, leuco “white”, cephalos “head”) is a bird of prey found in North America. A sea eagle, it has two known sub-species and forms a species pair with the white-tailed eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla). Its range includes most of Canada and Alaska, all of the contiguous United States, and northern Mexico. It is found near large bodies of open water with an abundant food supply and old-growth trees for nesting.

The bald eagle is an opportunistic feeder which subsists mainly on fish, which it swoops down and snatches from the water with its talons. It builds the largest nest of any North American bird and the largest tree nests ever recorded for any animal species, up to 4 m (13 ft) deep, 2.5 m (8.2 ft) wide, and 1 metric ton (1.1 short tons) in weight. Sexual maturity is attained at the age of four to five years.
