chik_pea reminder: we are just a small part of an ever expanding and ages old universe "Powerful, Pulsating Core of Star: Our Milky Way galaxy is littered with the still-sizzling remains of exploded stars. The blue dot in this image marks the spot of an energetic pulsar -- the magnetic, spinning core of star that blew up in a supernova explosion. We discovered the pulsar by identifying its telltale pulse -- a rotating beam of X-rays, that like a cosmic lighthouse, intersects Earth every 0.2 seconds. The pulsar lies in our inner Milky Way galaxy about 42,000 light-years away. " via @nasa

  •   the.shawshank It's like the universe screams in your face, "Do you know what I am? How grand I am? How old I am? Can you even comprehend what I am? What are you, compared to me?" And when you know enough science, you can just smile up at the universe and reply, "Dude, I am you." 1d
  •   chik_pea @the.shawshank exactly! It's beautiful 1d

chik_pea From the other Birmingham across the pond - had to repost this beautiful image by @joekf / I'm so happy that Joe continues to use our #instagrambham tag! Long after our bham 2 bham project ended.

This piece is by @akajimmyc as part of the City and Colour Festival,Custard Factory, Digbeth, Birmingham UK. We so need festivals like this in our Bham!
