(11 March 2008). Endeavour's rocket engines create the dramatic glow from above the clouds. From a standing start, the two million kilogram rocket ship left to circle the Earth where the outside air is too thin to breathe and where there is little noticeable onboard gravity.

      This is NOT A Destructive beauty: It is NOT a amazing picture of a tornado bursting through the clouds.... This is a picture from Florida, where and when the space shuttle went up. Living there most of my life, it is a scene that Floridians can identify quite well.

    Gravity bends more than just space. It bends time. The early results from Gravity Probe B, one of NASA’s most complicated satellites, confirmed ‘to a precision of better than 1 per cent’ the assertion Einstein made 90 years ago - that a massive object such as the Earth does indeed distort the fabric of space and time. This explains why GPS satellites must correct for time distortion: it passes more quickly in orbit than on the Earth.

    Astronomers have discovered the largest known structure in the universe, a clump of active galactic cores that stretch 4 billion light-years from end to end. The structure is a light quasar group (LQG), a collection of extremely luminous Galactic Nulcei powered by supermassive central black holes!

    #Astronomy: An international team of astronomers, led by David Sobral from Leinden University of the Netherlands used three telescopes located across the globe to study the trends in star formation, from the earliest stars that made up the first galaxies in the universe, up until now. Their findings suggests something quite shocking .. almost 95% of stars that will ever live have already been born!
