    Death Star Galaxy - images of an aggressive stellar force

    how cool is this? around 1.4 billion lightyears away, this galaxy is shooting a focussed stream of deadly radiation at a neighbouring galaxy. its like its one massive photon cannon! this is the stuff geeks' wet dreams are made of

    Polar jets are insane. Check out this one from M87 - wiki says it's ~5000 light years long.

    the universe is something that I've always been in love with. Any time there's a documentary about space on the learning channel, or anything similar I'm all over it like white on rice!

    I like this thread already, hope it can grow!

    Space is damn cool, although kinda scary
    Sepulverture, i think what you have there might be the first evidence of an intergalactic wiener

    That's a herbig-haro object. They're much smaller than the black hole jets (still ridiculously massive though) and are produced when a mummy gas cloud and a daddy gas cloud love each other very much. I'm surprised sepulverture was able to get the uncensored version.

    I lie. It's a polar jet from a coalescing star.

    That's awesome. Think of all the science-fictional possibilities, such as a superadvanced civilization harnessing or even creating one of these as a weapon.

    That is very cool.

    Sigh, humanity is still in it's infancy. There is sooooo much out there to learn.

    History channel has a series called "The Universe" ...actually it's on tonight talking about the Milky Way. (Video is part 1 the sun episode).



    They also had a "Mega Disasters" episode on gamma ray bursts, apparently after the big bang they are the most powerful explosions in the universe but last only a few milliseconds to a few minutes.



    Coronal mass ejections of our sun...
