A galactic sunflower | Hubble Space Telescope
The arrangement of the spiral arms in the galaxy Messier 63, seen here in a new image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, recall the pattern at the centre of a sunflower. So the nickname for this cosmic object—the Sunflower Galaxy—is no coincidence.

Discovered by Pierre Mechain in 1779, the galaxy later made it as the 63rd entry into fellow French astronomer Charles Messier’s famous catalogue, published in 1781. The two astronomers spotted the Sunflower Galaxy’s glow in the small, northern constellation Canes Venatici (the Hunting Dogs). We now know this galaxy is about 27 million light-years away and belongs to the M51 Group—a group of galaxies, named after its brightest member, Messier 51, another spiral-shaped galaxy dubbed the Whirlpool Galaxy.

Galactic arms, sunflowers and whirlpools are only a few examples of nature’s apparent preference for spirals. For galaxies like Messier 63 the winding arms shine bright because of the presence of recently formed, blue–white giant stars, readily seen in this Hubble image.

Water is stored in a spherical double membrane made up of brown algae and calcium chloride, and ingested by either puncturing a hole in the membrane and sucking water out juice-box style, or just tossing the entire blob into your mouth at once.
Everyone pretty much agrees that bottled water is awful. Aside from the ludicrousness of being sold a natural resource for 1000 times the cost of getting it from a tap, the phenomenon comes with an astounding number of negative effects on the environment. It drains our non-renewable energy sources, with 17 million barrels of oil used to produce plastic bottles each year.

In their first mission, they rescued 271 people including over 100 women and children. In just 60 days, Catrambone and his crew saved 3,000 lives.
