The Universe - Death Stars
« on: August 31, 2009, 10:22:49 PM »


"Death stars are in the final stage of life before they explode into a supernova and, occasionally, the biggest blast in the universe--the gamma ray burst (GRB). One death star, named WR104, lurks 8,000 light-years from Earth and some believe its GRB arrow is aimed directly at us. A death star galaxy named 3C321 is a terrifying vision of what could one day befall the Milky Way galaxy: a companion galaxy's black hole is hammering it with a constant blast of high-energy particles, wreaking havoc with its celestial bodies. "

Celestial objects shown: Sun, Earth, Moon, WR 104, 3C321, Milky Way, Andromeda, Eta Carinae, Betelguese.

These high-energy particles are called plasmaes. Plasmas are the forth state of matter.

Plasmaes? lol. Btw it might be harsh for the grb pointing at earth, but WR 104 makes an awesome spiral.

when i first tried US, i mistook the system called deathstar orbiting endor for being a star collapsing and the black hole sucking in endor... i had no idea about star wars at that stage!
