On April 12, 1934, an incredible 231-mph surface wind was recorded coming from the southeast at the Mount Washington Observatory. This was the highest natural surface-wind velocity ever officially recorded by means of an anemometer, anywhere. Find out more: www.uhaul.com/...

Who Travels On The Ice Roads? Dog sleds, automobiles, large trucks (even U-Haul trucks!) travel over the ice roads. But by far, the most frequent travelers on the ice roads are the truckers who supply northern communities and industries with supplies.

Ice roads are usually ready to open in January. Then they are constantly monitored for safety. It is extremely important that all drivers follow the rules of the road for the safety of everyone traveling on the roads. #ice roads #truck #Canada

The ice roads are also called winter roads. That's because they simply do not exist during the warmer months of the year. Here's how the building process starts: around mid-November every winter, the temperature drops, the lakes freeze over, the marshy areas turn solid and the land surface is frozen. #ice roads, #trucking #Canada

Milky Way Galaxy Hubble | Hubble telescope image of the spiral galaxy NGC 4414. How many stars ...
Gorgeous Galaxy- In 1995, the majestic spiral galaxy NGC 4414 was imaged by the Hubble Space Telescope as part of the HST Key Project on the Extragalactic Distance Scale. An international team of astronomers, led by Dr. Wendy Freedman of the Observatories of the Carnegie Institution of Washington, observed this galaxy on 13 different occasions over the course of two months.
This is NGC4414, a typical spiral galaxy in the constellation Coma Berenices, is about 56,000 light-years in diameter and approximately 60 million light-years distant.
NGC 4414, a typical spiral galaxy in theconstellation Coma Berenices, is about 55,000 light-years in diameter and approximately 60 million light-years away from Earth. A galaxy is a gravitationally bound system of stars, stellar remnants, interstellar gas and dust, and dark matter. The word galaxy is derived from the Greek galaxias (γαλαξίας), literally "milky", a reference to the Milky Way. Examples of galaxies range from dwarfs with just a few thousand (103) stars to giants with one hundred trillion (1014) stars, each orbiting their galaxy's own center of mass. Galaxies can be categorized according to their visual morphology, including elliptical, spiral, and irregular. Many galaxies are believed to have black holesat their active center. The Milky Way's central black hole, known as Sagittarius A*, has a mass four million times that of our Sun. As of May 2015, EGS-zs8-1 is the most distant known galaxy, estimated to be 13.1 billion light-years away and to have 15% of the mass of the Milky Way
Spiral galaxy NGC 4414 contains many Cepheid variable stars that oscillate in a way that allows astronomers to estimate their distance. From analyzing distances to galaxies like this, some astronomers have recently announced that they have again refined their estimate of the expansion rate of the universe. The running debate over this rate is not yet over http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap990609.html

The Hourglass Nebula, otherwise known as MyCn 18, is a young planetary nebula that is just 8,000 light-years from Earth. This image from Hubble was the first to reveal MyCn 18’s true shape to be an hourglass with an intricate pattern of “etchings” in its walls. It is thought that the hourglass shape of MyCn 18 may be the result of “the expansion of a fast stellar wind within a slowly expanding cloud, which is denser near its equator than near its poles.”The Hourglass Nebula was featured on the cover of the April 1997 issue of National Geographic. Its unique shape led the editors to say, “Astronomers looked 8,000 light-years into the cosmos with the Hubble Space Telescope, and it seemed that the eye of God was staring back.” The appearance of an eye at its center isn’t fully understood.
The Engraved Hourglass Nebula is a young planetary nebula. A planetary nebula is an old red giant star late in its life. It is conjectured the hourglass shape is produced by the expansion of a fast stellar wind within a slowly expanding cloud which is denser near its equator than its poles. The formation of the shape of the inner "eye" is not yet fully understood. JPL/NASA/ESA

The Hourglass Nebula (MyCn18) is a young planetary nebula located about 8,000 light years away. This artificially colorized image was taken with the Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2 aboard NASA's Hubble Space Telescope.
Hubble sees the universe with incredible clarity. It is designed to see the heavens 10 times more clearly than any telescope on Earth and is able to see objects one-billionth as bright as the human eye. #Science #Telescope #Space www.uhaul.com/...
