This comes under the category of "you ain't seen nothin' yet" - or "here we see that the future is obvious ".
 
Google released a preview of its Cloud Vision API for tasks like identifying objects and faces, plus a Linux demo that runs on a Raspberry Pi-based robot.

I used this post to put together a nice ruby script to grab a listing of sailboats for sale in my area... I have a fondness for coding in ruby but I have much to learn.  Ruby is a fun language.

This spiral galaxy, M101, is like our Milky Way, but about 70 percent bigger. It is located about 21 million light years from Earth. X-rays from Chandra reveal the hottest and most energetic areas due to exploded stars, superheated gas and material falling toward black holes. Infrared data from Spitzer shows dusty lanes in the galaxy where stars are forming, while optical data traces the light from stars.

This image is part of a "quartet of galaxies" collaboration of professional and amateur astronomers that combines optical data from amateur telescopes with data from the archives of our missions.

Interesting article
Linux is 24 years old today. In 1996, he told me how it all started.

Awesome!
 
Here's what happens when galaxies collide - as seen by our Chandra X-Ray Observatory:

M51 is a spiral galaxy, about 30 million light years away, that is in the process of merging with a smaller galaxy seen to its upper left.
