Microbes in the hair of Hans Gruber falling from the Nakatomi Tower kept on on their happy bacterial ways whilst the 20th floor was slowly passing by.

Things went better, they've invented public transportation, cured the child mortality and busying themselves with their tiny nano-industrial revolution started to observe the empty world around them.

Invetiably, on one sunny arcsecond of the second half of the 20th floor they've discovered that the Universe is flying down!

And a quater of the window lower they've revised the measurements and figured it's accelerating. Down! Faster with every single angstrom.

The Universe is accelerating!

What is the nature of this dark energy, increasing the speed of the already so insanely fast movement? We call it gravitation, but to the crawlies it's still a puzzle.

Let's wish them a good resolution, and more offspring healthy algae!
Brian Koberlein originally shared to Our Universe:
 
A Whole New World

Twenty-five years ago the Hubble space telescope took its first image of the heavens. While the first image might not have seemed impressive at first glance, it opened a view of the universe previously unattainable.

The Hubble telescope had several advantages over ground-based telescopes of the time. To begin with, it didn’t suffer from the atmospheric distortions that cause stars to twinkle. Because of such distortions, ground-based telescopes had a limiting resolution of about a second of arc. The Hubble could gather light to about 0.05 arcseconds. Since Hubble’s launch, ground based telescopes have gained greater precision through interferometry and adaptive optics, but these were years away when Hubble’s mission began. Hubble could also observe infrared and ultraviolet wavelengths, much of which are absorbed by Earth’s atmosphere.

The greater range and precision of Hubble has given us a much deeper understanding of the universe. It allowed us to measure Cepheid variable stars with greater precision, which gave us a more accurate cosmic distance ladder. It found protoplanetary disks in the Orion nebula, confirming the basic model of planetary formation. It gave us the Ultra Deep Field, which found that there are thousands of galaxies in a patch of sky no bigger than a grain of sand. It also gave us thousands of beautiful images, from the Pillars of Creation to the starry ocean of the Andromeda galaxy.

But perhaps its most revolutionary discovery came from observations of distant supernovae. By measuring the brightness of these supernovae, we could determine their distance. What we found was that the universe is not only expanding, but that the rate of expansion is increasing. This not only gave us an accurate measure of the age of the universe, it also led to the discovery of dark energy, which we are still trying to understand.

The Hubble telescope was named in honor of Edwin Hubble, who played a central role in demonstrating that the universe extended far beyond our Milky Way galaxy. It is perhaps fitting that the telescope bearing his name has done so much to determine the true age and scale of the cosmos.
The Hubble telescope is 25 years old, and in that time it has revolutionized our understanding of the cosmos.

So far Google Photos continues the trend of bizarre user experience illuminated with morose features.

And that without seeing the actual UI.

It's always been a dead stinking dog on showing their oozing dirt of animations whilst doing some nerdy 'signing in'. I waited for couple of minutes, half-ready to kick the dumb thing out of my phone.

What does it even mean 'signing in'? It's supposed to be a photo manager, not a banking portal. Show me my photos or die, idiot.

The Dilbert comic writer has made a pretence of a balanced argument on the topic of assisted suicide.

I don't like the way he's handled it, I don't like the cocky positivistic attitude towards the value of life, and I seriously downgrade his opinions on any other topic from now on.

The core of the argument his opponent put forward is of the fungibility of human life. Assisted suicide can only be argued for on the assumption that life is a fungible commodity. That means the value of it is quantity-based, as in petrol or gold, as opposed to non-fungible items valued per-item like art, intellectual property etc.

Instead of passing a judgment on the core of the argument, the Dilbert cartoonist play with 'agree/disagree' long lists, making arbitrary conclusions. Utterly unsubstantiated and frankly shallow.

I don't like it, not a little bit of it.

The UK Independence and Green parties could not be farther apart on Britain's political spectrum; the first on the right, the second on the left. Yet take a look at 10 policy statements from the two parties’ manifestos. Can you spot the difference? http://econ.st/1aVzAsF
