THE ANDROMEDA GALAXY IN FAR-INFRARED AND X-RAYS Explosive stars in its interior // cooler, dusty stars forming in its many rings.

The image is a combination of observations from the European Space Agency’s Herschel Space Observatory taken in far-infrared light (seen in orange hues), and the ESA’s XMM-Newton telescope captured in X-rays (seen in blues).
Herschel provides a detailed look at the cool clouds of star birth that line the galaxy’s five concentric rings. Massive young stars are heating blankets of dust that surround them, causing them to glow in the longer-wavelength infrared light, known as far-infrared, that Herschel sees.
In contrast, XMM-Newton is capturing what happens at the end of the lives of massive stars. It shows the high-energy X-rays that come from, among other objects, supernova explosions and massive dead stars rotating around companions. These X-ray sources are clustered in the center of the galaxy, where the most massive stars tend to form.

Jupiter’s Irregular Satellites

The planet Jupiter has 67 confirmed moons. This gives it the largest retinue of moons with “reasonably secure” orbits of any planet in the Solar System. In fact, Jupiter and its moons are like a miniature solar system with the inner moons orbiting faster than the others. Eight of Jupiter’s moons are regular satellites, with prograde and nearly circular orbits that are not greatly inclined with respect to Jupiter’s equatorial plane. The remainder of Jupiter’s moons are irregular satellites, whose prograde and retrograde orbits are much farther from Jupiter and have high inclinations and eccentricities. These moons were probably captured by Jupiter from solar orbits. There are 17 recently discovered irregular satellites that have not yet been named.

The video is even better:  http://www.vulture.com/2014/07/this-woman-killed-it-on-american-ninja-warrior.html

The male competitors are in awe the whole time, and even the commentators learned to stop saying, “I don’t think she can do this.”

She’s amazing.

YAAAASSS! I was too hype for this!
