Hubble Catches 2 Galaxies at Play

The pair of strange, luminescent creatures at play in this image are actually galaxies — realms of millions upon millions of stars. This galactic duo is known as UGC 2369. The galaxies are interacting, meaning that their mutual gravitational attraction is pulling them closer and closer together and distorting their shapes in the process. A tenuous bridge of gas, dust, and stars can be seen connecting the two galaxies,, during which they pulled material out into space across the diminishing divide between them.  Interaction with others is a common event in the history of most galaxies. For larger galaxies like the Milky Way, the majority of these interactions involve significantly smaller so-called dwarf galaxies. But every few aeons, a more momentous event can occur. For our home galaxy, the next big event will take place in about four billion years, when it will collide with its bigger neighbour, the Andromeda Galaxy. Over time, the two galaxies will likely merge into one — already nicknamed Milkomeda.

Hubble Snaps a Galactic Potpourri of Particles

Every now and then, the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope glimpses a common object — say, a spiral galaxy — in an interesting or unusual way. A sharply angled perspective, such as the one shown in this Picture of the Week, can make it seem as if we, the viewers, are craning our necks to see over a barrier into the galaxy’s bright centre.  In the case of NGC 3169, this barrier is the thick dust embedded within the galaxy’s spiral arms. Cosmic dust comprises a potpourri of particles, including water ice, hydrocarbons, silicates, and other solid material. It has many origins and sources, from the leftovers of star and planet formation to molecules modified over millions of years by interactions with starlight.  NGC 3169 is located about 70 million light-years away in the constellation of Sextans (The Sextant). It is part of the Leo I Group of galaxies, which, like the Local Group that houses our home galaxy, the Milky Way, is part of a larger galactic congregation known as the Virgo Supercluster.

Hubble Peers at Galactic Cherry Blossoms

The galaxy NGC 1156 resembles a delicate cherry blossom tree flowering in springtime in this Hubble Picture of the Week. The many bright “blooms” within the galaxy are in fact stellar nurseries — regions where new stars are springing to life. Energetic light emitted by newborn stars in these regions streams outwards and encounters nearby pockets of hydrogen gas, causing it to glow with a characteristic pink hue. NGC 1156 is located in the constellation of Aries (The Ram). It is classified as a dwarf irregular galaxy, meaning that it lacks a clear spiral or rounded shape, as other galaxies have, and is on the smaller side, albeit with a relatively large central region that is more densely packed with stars.  Some pockets of gas within NGC 1156 rotate in the opposite direction to the rest of the galaxy, suggesting that there has been a close encounter with another galaxy in NGC 1156’s past. The gravity of this other galaxy — and the turbulent chaos of such an interaction — could have scrambled the likely more orderly rotation of material within NGC 1156, producing the odd behaviour we see today.

Growing VEGGIEs in Space

Leafy greens are growing in space! The Columbus laboratory module’s VEGGIE botany research facility is the home to the International Space Station‘s gardening activities. The VEG-04 botany study is exploring the viability of growing fresh food in space to support astronauts on long-term missions. The salad-type plants are harvested after 28 days of growth, with some samples stowed for analysis and the rest taste-tested by the crew aboard the station.

Neighboring Communities Playfully Connect Atop Neon Pink Teetertotters Slotted Through the U.S.-Mexico Border Wall

July 30, 2019  Laura Staugaitis

Ronald Rael and Virginia San Fratello have long worked in activating structures in projects that blur the line between art and architecture. The Oakland-based duo, who self-describe as pursuing “applied architectural research”, also have a longstanding interest in the United States-Mexico border wall. In 2009 Rael wrote Borderwall as Architecture, which features a conceptual drawing of a teetertotter. The concept relocates the classic playground equipment to the border wall as its fulcrum. Ten years later, this cover art came to life in the neighboring communities of Sunland Park, New Mexico and Colonia Anapra, Mexico.

Constructed by Taller Herrería in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, neon pink teetertotters slot through the wall’s narrow gaps, allowing citizens on both sides to playfully engage with their cross-border counterparts. The fundamental design of the teetertotter, while delightful and chuckle-inducing, also functions by each user literally feeling the weight of humanity of the person on the other side. In an Instagram post announcing the project Rael shared, “children and adults were connected in meaningful ways on both sides with the recognition that the actions that take place on one side have a direct consequence on the other side.”

Rael and San Fratello worked in collaboration with Omar Rios to execute “Teetertotter Walls.” Rael is a Professor of Architecture at the University of California, Berkeley and San Fratello is an Assistant Professor at San José State University. Dive into an archive of nearly twenty years of the duo’s socially engaged work on their website, and follow along with their latest projects on Instagram.

Infinite Forms Unfurl in New Rotating Sculptures by John Edmark

August 6, 2019  Laura Staugaitis

We continue to be transfixed by John Edmark’s (previously) infinite 3-D printed designs. The self-described artist, designer, and inventor uses visual tricks to create cascading effects on rotating textured white sculptural surfaces. His most recent video, “Blooms Assortment”, features a noodle-like form, shifting cubes, and a hollow gridded shape that resembles a geyser or mushroom cloud. Edmark has a bachelor’s and master’s degree in computer science and has lectured at Stanford’s design program for over fifteen years.  See more of Edmark’s creations on Vimeo and if you’d like to call one of his pieces your own, visit his online store.

In Ohio, do Republican voters care about Trump’s remarks on race?

PBS NewsHour   Published on Aug 2, 2019

President Trump prompted more controversy this week by insulting a lawmaker of color, Rep. Elijah Cummings, and his Maryland district. Trump called Baltimore “filthy” and “infested,” terms he has used before to refer to urban areas with majority black populations. Ahead of Trump’s rally in southwestern Ohio, Yamiche Alcindor asked voters there what they think of the president’s rhetoric on race.

A Photo that Says it All ~ Individualism v. Conformity

  Art museums are very revealing. They demonstrate conformity at its finest. 

What makes art valuable? Does it have to do with the skill of the artist, the level of intrigue depicted, or maybe a fascinating perspective? 

Perhaps, but more often than not, the value of art is defined merely by what everyone else thinks is valuable. 

I’ve seen great art. I can tell you precisely how I define great artistry. But I won’t, because that’s how I define it, and that shouldn’t matter to you. Its purely subjective.

Yet walk into an art museum and what do you find? The art determined to be the most valuable is highlighted, some even have their own entire room.

I’ll grant that I’m not the most sophisticated guy by society’s standards, but I’ve yet to enter a museum where I didn’t’ find at least one piece of art that left me wondering “How did this even get in here? This is terrible”

And this is why I love this photo so much. You have a couple of kids in an art gallery not burdened by any social pressures. They are surrounded by art that is valued enough to be placed on display.

And yet, what are thinking?

“Forget what everyone else thinks. I’ll tell you what’s interesting. Its what is inside this wall!”

Forests of Central America is home to the Quetzal species. An odd variety of feathers is not the only thing they possess but they do have weird hair and hairs and also they have a healthy desire for food; in short foodie. From lizards, insects, small creatures, and even fruits, they are just ready to eat everything.

3. Rainbow Lorikeet Bird

This intensely hued parrot looks like an artist has shown his brushing skills. Rainbow Lorikeets are often seen along the eastern coast of Australia and also found in the Austrian and American region. They prefer hanging in rainforests, woodland areas, and coastal bush.

Other than fishes they prey on frogs, insects, crabs, rats, lizards, and even other birds. When they hunt, they usually sit on a high point and wait to see the prey.

Nevertheless, this bird at first glance may not strike you but a close inspection shows a wonderful mix of gray, rose, yellow and black colors that blend beautifully. The body of Bohemian Waxwing is usually found in gray color, but it has rose-colored feathers in its face whereas its tail has a bright yellow tip.

7. Painted Bunting Bird

The male species is an orange one, while the female show off a light yellow shade. However, both of them show the same black bars on their wings for the opposite wings, and they are equally extravagant to see both.

Melancholy Creatures Explore Imagined Worlds in Wistful Murals by Hayley Welsh

July 29, 2019  Laura Staugaitis

Hayley Welsh’s playful murals pair imaginative creatures with universal messages of uplift and encouragement. Often featuring furry, plump critters that seem to be hybrids of dogs, rabbits, and teddy bears, Welsh’s subjects peer through periscopes atop mechanical fish or aboard paper boats, tug clouds from penny farthing bicycles, and sprout trees as antlers. Occasionally, Basquiat-esque crown motifs appear as well.

In a statement on her website, Welsh’s “ominously soft” work “explores inner voices of self doubt and fear, weaving a poignant narrative into every piece?—a message for each person to reflect on in the moment.” The British-born artist lives and works between Perth, Australia and Blackburn, U.K. Explore more of her outdoor and gallery-based artwork on her website and Instagram.
