Ohohoho the fact that my first final is Tuesday at 8 am just sunk in.
That moment when you realize you accidentally left your telescope outside all night and now it’s raining

It’s easy to say “fuck cultural identities, we’re all human” when your culture is not the one being exploited, marginalized and oppressed. It’s easy to say “fuck borders” when your country is the one who puts up the borders. And it is really fucking easy to say “we all bleed red” when it’s not bodies of your people riddled with bullets because Western capitalism has a price.

I know everyone is excited about penguins and seals, but the real Antarctica heroes are the passionate fish scientists and under-ice divers who work with the bizarre and beautiful marine life down here. I’m very proud to have an article up on Slate today about what they do. This photo, and others in the article, are taken by under ice diver Rob Robbins, who has been diving in Antarctica for 35 years.
Unpopular Astronomy Object Of The Week:
Quasars are a popular radio/optical/everything source in the sky, and not only are they one of the most brightest objects in the universe, but they are the product of super massive black holes.
But what many people do not know about is Quasar’s slightly different cousin, Blazar.
A Blazar are a very compact Quasar, that are pointing in the general direction of Earth. They are known to be highly energetic phenomenon, and because they usually point in the general direction of Earth, they will have a blueshift level.
Blazar are amazing objects, yet they are so unpopular that when they are typed(like in a word document), a red line is placed under it indicating “Blazar” is a spelling error. This is not the same case when “Quasar” is typed.
Blazars are commonly known to be in the gamma end of the spectrum, and it a studied topic in extragalactic astronomy. Even then, Blazars remain a rather unpopular object in contrast to Quasar, but this astronomy object should be more popular.

I’d post more science but I’m too busy lying in bed planning my runaway with a puppy that looks like a sack of money.
