I think this fits in the “lights” portion of this topic. Watch this animation of the recent neutron stars collision. It’s magical!

Just as I’m reading this, there’s a news article on TV about how Australia use these drones on the beaches to check the waters are safe for swimmers :shark: And one of the amazing things about the drone is that if it sees someone struggling in the water it can drop an inflatable down :smiley:

LOL I saw that as well. A good use of that technology…

Yes, yes! Life rafts instead of bombs. :smiley:

Here’s a new image of the Crab Nebula obtained from 5 telescopes - 1 on Earth and 4 in space. It’s beautiful! This is the result of a supernova observed by the Chinese in 1054 and the “bright star” they saw glowed for 2 years before fading out.

Some smart-arse scientist is calling your ball a neutron star. It’s right in the middle of that pretty cloudy thing! :smile_cat:
