Astronomy Picture Of The Weekend #1

The Tarantula Nebula is more than a thousand light-years in diameter, a giant star forming region within nearby satellite galaxy the Large Magellanic Cloud, about 180 thousand light-years away. The largest, most violent star forming region known in the whole Local Group of galaxies, the cosmic arachnid sprawls across this spectacular composite view constructed with space- and ground-based image data. Within the Tarantula (NGC 2070), intense radiation, stellar winds and supernova shocks from the central young cluster of massive stars, cataloged as R136, energize the nebular glow and shape the spidery filaments…  Continue reading Astronomy Picture Of The Weekend #1

Einstein is best known in popular culture for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2 (which has been dubbed “the world’s most famous equation”). He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics for his “services to theoretical. Continue reading Albert Einstein: Thoughts About Life, Love And Imagination

Happiness

I have been in several debates with different people about the meaning of the word “happiness”. It looks like a lot of people believe that happiness is momentary explosion of positive emotions which consume you completely and that our life is composed of this small moments of positive energy, mutually connected with boring, negative or simple everyday periods.
