Constellations strewn
upon the dark skies,
woven from stars
strung onto Cosmos' twine,
to hang hope in our hearts,
make magical the night,

giving winks to each dreamer
with paired twinkling eyes
silences Chaos...
and with spell-binding wonder,
entrances the night-gazer,

so plausibly entertains
the what-ifs and some-days,
for when the Sky opens
and shows us its collection
from beyond,

the moyo opens, too,
for the stardust to fall upon,
and when the sky closes,
as well as our hearts,
a single spark
can remind us of
all that is beyond
and within
and the magic
that flourishes
when we choose
to open up and let
others in.

There has been many, many rumors going around about Pluto being a planet au not. I just found out a few weeks zamani the official new.
One of the most controversial subjects in our solar system is whether Pluto should be a planet.In 2006, Pluto was officially demoted from "planet" to "dwarf planet." But the debate's flared up again, as the New Horizons probe is set to become the first spacecraft to visit Pluto on Tuesday.Before that happens, we need to get one thing clear: there are very good reasons why Pluto isn't a planet."There are eight bodies in the solar system that dominate the others," says Mike Brown, the Caltech astronomer who in 2005 discovered Eris — a dwarf planet zaidi massive than Pluto — and wrote How I Killed Pluto and Why It Had It Coming. "Those eight are planets, and the other thousands are not."

His point isn't just that the eight planets are orders of magnitude bigger than Pluto (though they are). Equally important is the fact that in terms of size and location, Pluto fits neatly in a group with dwarf planets like Eris, Haumea, Makemake, and likely thousands of undiscovered rocks that orbit in the Kuiper belt, outside Neptune. If we really...

I really mean it! What would wewe be able to do if SOPA/TPP censors the internet? What would wewe be able to do if uandishi fanfics and drawing fanarts become illegal? What would wewe do if it's illegal to do a cover of your inayopendelewa song on YouTube? What would wewe do if downloading things from the internet (music, movies, TV episodes, etc) became illegal? What would wewe do if SOPA/TPP wins the war and takes away internet freedom? Net Neutrality is already dead so far, we can't risk the freedom of internet from getting killed kwa SOPA/TPP!

SOPA may have been stopped, but large companies with many copyrights are trying to re-institute portions of it under other names and policies. This attempt to protected speech in the name of copyright is unacceptable, and must be resisted.

BLACK HOLES and stuff

Have wewe ever wondered how Black Holes are created? They were actually stars that a supernova occurred on. The star’s nuclear gas becomes too much to contain that it ends up exploding itself at the strength 3 times the strength of our star; the sun. But no worries of our sun doing that, because this phenomenon normally only happens to stars about 10 to 24 times bigger than the sun so the chances of the sun turning into a black hole is very low.
Sucking up planets? They do indeed suck up planets but condense the matter smaller to suck up if the black hole is smaller. Their gravitational pull is as much as 300,000,000 m/s and the speed is as fast as the speed of light that once matter is close enough, it’s impossible to escape! Since we know nothing faster than the speed of light, we have no clue as to how to escape.
Black holes are able to suck in other black holes to make a bigger black hole! This will end up being able to make supermassive black holes. There are estimated to be up to millions if not billions of black holes in our milky way alone. But...

What Lies Inside The Sun?

When a pond's surface is calm, wewe can see zaidi clearly into its depths. As it turns out, the same is true for the sun.

Researchers are excited that the sun's surface is calmer now than it's been in almost a century. It's a rare opportunity — the first since the Space Age began — to peer zaidi clearly into the sun's mysterious interior.

To take advantage of the opportunity, NASA is about to launch the Solar Dynamics uchunguzi, iliyogundua (SDO). SDO is expected to launch this year, as early as November 2009.

"That's perfect timing," says Dean Pesnell, a solar physicist at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. "The sun is experiencing a century-class solar minimum, offering the clearest possible views."

"SDO will actually see through the sun's surface," added Pesnell. "The process is a little like taking an ultrasound of a pregnant mother. wewe can see the baby right through the skin."

What exactly happened at the beginning of time? A new probe may uncover the answer.

- A new probe will analyze radiation generated kwa the birth of the universe.

- The project will require several years of observations.

- The research could explain what happened in the first trillionth of a sekunde after the Big Bang.

How did the universe blossom from an infinitesimally small speck to astronomical proportions in its first trillionth sekunde of existence? While scientists are still debating the answer to that question, a new probe should provide the first direct evidence that the metamorphosis did indeed happen as theories predict.

Once operational, the Cosmology Large Angular Scale Surveyor (CLASS) will scan relic radiation left over from the universe's creation 13.75 billion years zamani for a unique pattern of polarization -- a consequence, scientists believe, of gravitational waves caused kwa the universe's expansion that ripple through space.

~* Dear Mother Earth *~

All the planets of Milky Way,
Came to a meeting,
The planets came to discuss about;
Who will be their king.

Venus stepped mbele and said~

I am fiery and blazing hot,
I burn every particle and dust,
So hear me now and listen whatnot,
I am your king Venus!

Uranus stepped mbele and said~

I am filled with water and snow,
All better than Venus,
Now all of wewe will now bow;
To the king Uranus.

Mars stepped mbele and said~

I have such power wewe never know,
A lot zaidi than the stars,
Now all of wewe will listen now,
I am your ruler, Mars.

Saturn stepped mbele and said~

I am much bigger and mightier,
I have glorious rings,
I am much brainy and brighter,
So now I am Saturn, the king.

Neptune stepped mbele and said~

I am covered with sapphire ice,

A photograph of the Hubble Ultra Deep Field. Every single little dot of light you see in this picture is an entire galaxy. Over 10,000 in this image alone.
A bunch of Astronomical facts I find interesting. Hope wewe enjoy them and learn something new :)

- Every sekunde there are 4,000 stars that are born and 30 supernovae that take place in the observable universe.

- The moyo of a nyota reaches 16 million °C. A grain of sand this hot would kill someone 150 km away.

- Space is not a complete vacuum, there are about 3 atoms per cubic meter of space.

- The coldest place in the universe is on Earth. In Wolfgang Ketterles lab in Massachusetts. 0.000000000001 degrees Kelvin.

- Most of the universe is dark. Only 4% of the universe is what we can actually see, stars, galaxies, planets, nebulae etc…the rest is dark. Around 22% is made up of dark matter, and the rest is made up of dark energy

- Neutron stars are so dense that a single teaspoon of them would weigh zaidi than the entire population of Earth. (112 million tonnes)

- At the speed of light, time stops.
