A fascinating hybrid: a neutron star inside a supergiant star has been discovered.  Called a Thorne-Żytkow object, the possibility of such a hybrid had been theorized and has now been proven with the discovery.  #Thorne-Żytkow  #hybridstarhttp://click-to-read-mo.re/p/9saW/524c994d

Hubble Helps Find Smallest Known Galaxy Containing a Supermassive Black HoleIt’s hard to envision what the night sky would look like in this densely populated galaxy.  NASA notes: "Astronomers using data from NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope and ground observation have found an unlikely object in an improbable place — a monster black hole lurking inside one of the tiniest galaxies ever known.The black hole is five times the mass of the one at the center of our Milky Way galaxy. It is inside one of the densest galaxies known to date — the M60-UCD1 dwarf galaxy that crams 140 million stars within a diameter of about 300 light-years, which is only 1/500th of our galaxy’s diameter.If you lived inside this dwarf galaxy, the night sky would dazzle with at least 1 million stars visible to the naked eye. Our nighttime sky as seen from Earth’s surface shows 4,000 stars.” #astronomy     #hubble     #nasa     #blackhole     #galaxyhttp://click-to-read-mo.re/p/9rHE/524c994d

Hubble Helps Find Smallest Known Galaxy Containing a Supermassive Black Hole

It’s hard to envision what the night sky would look like in this densely populated galaxy.  

NASA notes: "Astronomers using data from NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope and ground observation have found an unlikely object in an improbable place — a monster black hole lurking inside one of the tiniest galaxies ever known.

The black hole is five times the mass of the one at the center of our Milky Way galaxy. It is inside one of the densest galaxies known to date — the M60-UCD1 dwarf galaxy that crams 140 million stars within a diameter of about 300 light-years, which is only 1/500th of our galaxy’s diameter.

If you lived inside this dwarf galaxy, the night sky would dazzle with at least 1 million stars visible to the naked eye. Our nighttime sky as seen from Earth’s surface shows 4,000 stars.”

Genealogy researchers constantly encounter old handwritten documents that we need to transcribe as a reference resource.  One of the best tools I’ve found for transcription is GenScriber.The application was created by Les Hardy who updates it with tweaks and features from time-to-time.   It is available in both Windows and Linux versions.   #genealogy   #genscriberhttp://click-to-read-mo.re/p/9hJf/524c994d

Excellent hands on science training using ham radios at the Dorothy Grant Elementary School in Fontana, California.  

Did you have opportunities to learn skills and concepts like this when you were in elementary school?   Do your children and grandchildren have opportunities similar to this today in their schools?

Most school districts can’t create programs like this.  They require external assistance and support and uniquely skilled teachers.  Congratulations to everyone who provides volunteer assistance in special education programs in their community.

73 to the fellow hams who help in similar programs in their community.
