    Incredible New Astrophotograph of the Small Magellanic Cloud

    A new portrait of the Small Magellanic Cloud reveals our galactic neighbor in unprecedented detail. The picture, taken in infrared light by NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope, is helping astronomers better understand the life cycle of dust in the galaxy.

    Understanding where dust comes from, how it forms bodies such as planets, and how it gets dispersed in the spaces between objects can result in new insights into galaxy formation. And the Small Magellanic Cloud, a dwarf galaxy close to the Milky Way, is an analog for some of the tiny galaxies that first populated the universe.

    Day 6: Interesting Facts About Carbon
    Atomic Symbol: C; Atomic Number: 6; Atomic Mass: 12.0107 

    1. Carbon is the basis for organic chemistry, and thus all living organisms, due to its ability to bond with itself and countless other elements. 
    2. In solid elemental form, it can form one of the hardest substances (diamond), and also one of the softest (graphite).
    3. Carbon has no limits to its usefulness; being used for graphite, diamonds, lubricant, drilling, fossil fuels, in smoke detectors, carbon-fiber, radiocarbon dating, and much, much more.
    4. Carbon’s history dates back to around 3750 BC., when it was first used by the Egyptians and the Sumerians for reducing copper, zinc, and tin ores to make bronze.

    Informational: Nearly Earth-Sized Planets Orbiting Alien Sun

    NASA’s Kepler mission has detected two worlds, one slightly smaller and one almost the same size as Earth. This is the first time that Earth-sized planets have been confirmed orbiting another star.

    Science is the best tool we have by far, self-correcting, ongoing, applicable to everything. It has two rules. First: There are no sacred truths; all assumptions must be critically examined; arguments from authority are worthless. Second: Whatever is inconsistent with the facts must be discarded or revised. We must understand the Cosmos as it is and not confuse how it is with how we wish it to be. —Carl Sagan
