"Transition"
The Blood Moon - Lunar Eclipse

This is a composite of a sequence of photos I took the other night to capture the transformation of the Blood Moon here in Colorado, high up in the Rockies.

These shots were all taken with the +Sony  #a7r  and Canon 500mm f/4 telephoto lens. Next time I might opt for a true telescope that I can attach my camera to :)

XNA is synthetic DNA that's stronger than the real thing. Back in 2012 an international team of researchers has shown that artificial nucleic acids - called "XNAs" - can replicate and evolve, just like DNA and RNA.

When it comes to medical and biotechnology uses, the new XNA is looking good because it’s synthetic and can be created in a lab. Some have even said it could lead to the possibility of new life forms on the planet.  Whether that happens or not remains to be seen, but for now there are a lot of ways that XNA is going to be helpful.

XNA has some advantages over DNA. For one, it is not biodegradable. DNA can break down, but XNA is able to hold itself together over time. Another benefit of XNA is that it may lead to a better understanding of the origin of life on this planet. While scientists, scholars and clergy have been fighting about this for a long time, we’re getting closer to knowing how everything actually got started on this planet. One thing is for certain – more research and studies need to be conducted.
