About

Always growing older - never growing up.

Eclectic random geekery: Star Wars, Doctor Who, Sci-Fi, science, photography, LEGO, and stupid, stupid things.

This is my personal opinion / reblogging blog. If you're after my personal photos or awful photoshop creations, the links are below.

LIKE YOU CARE...

As they say in the classics "I'm too old for this shit".

That said, I live in sunny Brisbane (Australia), forging a career in advertising / marketing whilst enjoying life as it comes.

I take photos on my iPhone, listen to (a lot of) music on my iPhone, and like Star Wars. So yes, I'm a geek.

That's about it.

Party on!

TUMBLRING SINCE AUG 2010

You have to visit this site and look at all of the amazing images and icons in the history of science. A grand tour!
(via What are some of the most important, iconic, and/or beautiful scientific images? - Quora)

From the sketches of da Vinci and Copernicus to Neil Armstrong’s lone footprint on the moons surface and Hubbles view of the pillars of creation, this is a fantastic collection.  Here are some of my favourites:





What are yours?

The cynics are right nine times out of ten by Marty DesiletsPhoto taken in Jacobsburg State Park, Pennsylvania during the day (the shadows on the path are the giveaway), then merged with a NASA nebula image in photoshop. Stunning.

The Greatest Stars
The small open star cluster Pismis 24 lies in the core of the NGC 6357 nebula in Scorpius, about 8,000 light-years away from Earth. Pismis 24-1, the brightest object in the center of this image, is two stars orbiting one another that are each estimated to be 100 solar masses.
Spectroscopic observations with ground-based telescopes reveal that one of the stars is actually a tight binary that is too compact to be resolved even by Hubble. This divides the estimated mass for Pismis 24-1 among the three stars. Although the stars are still among the heaviest known, the mass limit has not been broken due to the multiplicity of the system.

If we are all made of stardust, then I’m gonna call “it” on this quadrant. Magnificent.

Thanks to The Urania Project and FuckYeahNebulas for the original image (and for the last time, they know it’s not the correct spelling, it’s just the other name is already taken. Sheeeeesh).
