Milky Way over Chilean Volcanoes
Sometimes, the sky mimics the ground. Taken in 2017 May from the Atacama Desert in Chile, the foreground of the featured image encompasses the dipping edge of the caldera of an extinct volcano. Poetically echoing the dip below is the arch of our Milky Way Galaxy above.

Many famous icons dot this southern nighttime vista, including the center of our Milky Way Galaxy on the far left, the bright orange star Antares also on the left, the constellation of the Southern Cross near the top of the arch, and the red-glowing Gum Nebula on the far right.

Just above the horizon and splitting two distant volcanic peaks near the image center is the Large Magellanic Cloud -- the largest satellite galaxy of the Milky Way.

Here Come the Mind-Blowing Smartphone Sensors That Could Bring AR to the Masses

"Over the course of the next year, get ready for phones to get some awesome new imaging capabilities. We're talking more than just a tweak to the camera, or stereoscopic vision. Think full-on depth sensing and mapping.

Today, Qualcomm released a video demonstrating the abilities of its next-generation Snapdragon mobile processor and "active depth sensing" sensor package, in which thousands of dots of infrared light map objects in three dimensions in real time..."

Emission nebula IC 410, in the constellation in the constellation Auriga.

This nebula is about 12,000 light-years away and over 100 light-years across.

It is a cloud of glowing hydrogen gas, whose shape is sculpted by stellar winds and radiation

from an embedded open star cluster called NGC 1893.

Gordon Falls Blue Mountain NP

For a long time, I was sure that the "mustache fall" was just a myth spread to attract the unwary. It tends to disappear in dry seasons. (I like the wide view of this area, but will post a close up of the falls themselves in comments below).
Finding a vantage point for this fall is tricky - the signs can confuse. This shot is from about 1,000 paces, down a path that has seen better days.

In this shot i have not tried to dehaze the early morning mist. Instead, i have simply toned for structure and post processed with VSCO film emulation Fuji Velvia 100 Landscape. I output sharpened this for screens.

Islands

Silhouette Island, Seychelles

This smooth and curved granite rock was once sharp and abrasive, but through countless years of sea and sand working on its surface it has become smooth to the touch and curved as per the never ending swirls of the waves sandblasting it from every direction.

On land the sun and rain are the other forces working its way through the granite, but the result is never as smooth as that being in the tidal zone as this one.

This is like a miniature island, as during low tide it is surrounded by the sand, and during high tide it is a true island with the sea surrounding it.

In the back you see the largest of all the granite islands – Mahe.

Pacers File Tampering Charges Against The Los Angeles Lakers, Verdict To Be Decided By The NBA

The Indiana Pacers have filed tampering charges against the Los Angeles Lakers over Paul George. The Pacers are charging the Lakers for tampering with them and the Pacers management in their quest to trade Paul George who was eventually traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder on June 30th. The NBA will full inspect this claim as Adam Silver and the entire NBA front office will have a full inspection of the Lakers franchise.

They will have interviews with the Lakers GM, Owner, Coach, and head of basketball operation Magic Johnson. If they find out the claims the Pacers are charging are true the punishments of the Lakers will be.

Banned from signing any star free agent/ decent free agent (Paul George, LeBron James and ect.), multiple draft picks being taken away. The most is for 5 to 10 years of no draft picks for the LA Lakers. And possible life bans from the NBA for any Lakers staff and potential suspensions of NBA players that could last an entire NBA season.

The NBA after their investigation will have to make a decision on if the Pacers claims on LA is true or false. If proven not true nothing will likely happen except for a warning by the NBA. If these are true, then possibly expect all punishments of what I have listed to be done on the Lakers franchise.

Science on track to identifying genetics of intelligence within 5 years

"Gene-based analyses found 536 genes significantly associated with general cognitive function; many were highly expressed in the brain, and associated with neurogenesis and dendrite gene sets. Genetic association results predicted up to 4% of general cognitive function variance in independent samples. There was significant genetic overlap between general cognitive function and information processing speed, as well as many health variables including longevity..."

When a massive star exploded in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy to the Milky Way, it left behind an expanding shell of debris called SNR 0519-69.0.

Here, multimillion degree gas is seen in X-rays
from Chandra (blue). The outer edge of the explosion (red)
and stars in the field of view are seen in visible light from Hubble.
