Oh no! You are falling down towards a self-similar quasicrystal!

Luckily you are shrinking as you fall, fast enough so you'll never hit bottom. You can see how this was made on the blog We Alone On Earth:

http://wealoneonearth.blogspot.com/2011/11/visual-analogue-of-shepard-tone.html

They point out that this is similar to a Shepard tone, a bunch of parallel rising tones that give the impression of a note that endlessly gets higher in pitch: as some tones rise too high to hear, others from below take their place.

They say that after staring at this long enough, when you look away everything will look like it's shrinking! I haven't gotten that effect yet, and I'm not sure I want to.

Stellar Homicide

With the aid of a telescope at Mount Haleakala in Hawaii, researchers were able to observe a supermassive black hole in the process of devouring a star. Of course black holes have a penchant for sucking in stellar bodies, but what makes this significant is that it was observed from start to finish, giving astrophysicists precious new information on how the process looks like when it begins. This computer simulation shows the time period in which a star first begins its final ascent into a black hole. The strong gravitational forces tidally shred the star, ejecting some of its gases into space. Astronomers observe this energy release as a flare in uv and visible light as the gas falls back into the black hole. In any case with the data collected it looks like a cut and dry case for NASA CSI ;)

原文发表于 荷兰在线 http://www.rnw.nl/chinese/article/680287 荷兰外交部国务秘书本·克纳彭(Ben Knapen)日前接待了一个相当特别的代表团:12名来自世界不同国家的性工作者。 荷兰外交部下属的发展援助部在过去的两年中拨出经费资助了一个维护国际性工作者健康和安全的项目,并支持和帮助那些自愿走出性工作的女性学就一技之长。 这12名性工作者分别来自尼加拉瓜、巴西、马其顿、乌干达和越南。她们送给国务秘书一只象征性感的粉红色的高跟鞋以此感谢荷兰政府对她们的帮助。来自乌干达的黛丝表示在发展中国家从事性工作的女性还有相当长的路要走。,她说:“不过我们知道荷兰人民在帮助我们。” 共有7个国家的性工作者通过一个名为“站起来,走出去”(Stepping Up, Stepping Out )的发展项目从荷兰政府获得资金。项目组织者是荷兰艾滋病组织“荷兰Soa Aids”和教会组织ICCO。 从事性工作的女性可以获得小额贷款或者得到技术培训以便从事新的职业。荷兰政...
