APOD: Infrared Trifid (2015 Jul 25)

Image Credit: J. Rho (SSC/Caltech), JPL-Caltech, NASA

The Trifid Nebula, also known as Messier 20, is easy to find with a small telescope, a well known stop in the nebula rich constellation Sagittarius. But where visible light pictures show the nebula divided into three parts by dark, obscuring dust lanes, this penetrating infrared image reveals filaments of glowing dust clouds and newborn stars. The spectacular false-color view is courtesy of the Spitzer Space Telescope. Astronomers have used the Spitzer infrared image data to count newborn and embryonic stars which otherwise can lie hidden in the natal dust and gas clouds of this intriguing stellar nursery. As seen here, the Trifid is about 30 light-years across and lies only 5,500 light-years away.

Great shot of amazingly beautiful place.
 
Over Yellowstone

Photograph by Eric Smith

The day Your Shot member Eric Smith first walked the path around Yellowstone National Park’s Grand Prismatic Spring, he made an addition to his bucket list: photographing the spring from the air. “I made that dream a reality as I took off in a helicopter from Bozeman, Montana, and flew to the Midway Geyser Basin [where Grand Prismatic is located] to get the 50-megapixel shots I had always seen in my mind,” he writes. “It was even more spectacular than I could have imagined ... The final composition juxtaposes humanity with one of America's most incredible natural treasures.”

If more people forgive others, and don't retaliate to violence with violence, but instead reply to violence with education-compassion-helping the violent to evolve - the world will move towards Peace faster. :)  An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind. Forgiving doesn't mean we let others continue their violence against us, it's just an evolved way of understanding that there is a nonviolent way to stop the violence and trying to find that way will benefit all humans. :) 

Selfless Loving Forgiveness♥, as in Kind Gentleness towards all, may be the most powerful force in the Universe and the fastest bringer of World Peace.  It is very easy to get carried away by the hate-lust-violence in the news and some (shockingly and unfortunately legal) movies or music clips of some celebrities, but it's good to recall to Love/Forgive and surround in Loving Forgiveness all beings, because only Loving Forgiveness♥ neutralizes hate and the cycle of violence our planet has been in for eons.  

We can dematerialize all hate in the world by the Power of Infinite Love ♥, Compassion, Forgiveness♥ and Kindness ♥.  Only Forgiving Loving actions towards all will bring a loving happy peaceful future lifetime or afterlife, be it here or off-planet.  :)  To Reincarnate in a Civilization of Immortals usually requires mastering some Earth-type planet lessons first.:)    Reincarnation according to the Forgiveness-Love radiated and good done in action is true ► https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/SknkumtQnef.  The soul reincarnates in lower mortal worlds until it becomes a somewhat perfect example of universal  Forgiveness, Altruistic♥ Love and Compassion, Friendliness♥, Wisdom, Goodwill♥, Benevolence♥, Fellowship, Amity♥, Concord, Inoffensiveness and Non-violence, Boundless Selflessness♥.

Loving Forgiveness and Nurturing Healing Gentleness multiplied reach in the loveless places of the world, by quantum entanglement, and neutralize hate and violence.  Let's meditate in Compassionate Altruistic Forgiving Love more daily and surround all human beings in Love, Forgiveness and Peace, in our meditations, astral travels, thoughts, words, feelings, for when we die, all we take with us is the Love-Forgiveness or hate we have spread in the world.  :)  

Without Forgiveness and Altruistic Gentleness no Civilization of "Amazing Longevity or even Physical Immortality" (that Google Director of Engineering Ray Kurzweil talks about a lot) ever appeared in the Universes.  Newton's 3rd law of Classical Mechanics:  Action Force=Reaction Force ► if we spread Love-Forgiveness, we receive Love-Forgiveness, we bring Peace and we exponentially increase true Progress towards a world of "very long" lifespans.  Let's all Cultivate Love and Forgiveness, for they are true Treasures, Bringers of Peace and consequently more funds for medicine and longevity research (instead of wars). ♥

I like the platoon configuration and modular flexibility. But what if you join a chain and the controlling lead vehicle is driven by a sociopath?

Story
Introduction
Photography is a way of making love to the world. I believe that at every moment there is beauty in front of us, if only we have the eyes to see it. At age 55,after practicing medicine for 20 years, I sold my first photograph. Since then many people have asked to buy my images. I think this bodes well for the next part of my life. Sometimes I take a photograph that looks in some ways like what I saw, other times what I produce is more like a digital painting. Once I have an image that I like I keep working with it until I feel really happy, really excited. And that's when I hope to share with you. That feeling...
