    Anything related to our mysterious universe should be posted in this thread; from discussion to pictures. I'll start off with a couple of pictures and then once everyone has admired the pictures, we can discuss anything!

    Pulsar Neutron Stars: They're basically planets or stars omitting radiation in a blinding "strobe-light" fashion.

    Magnetars:
    They're another type of neutron stars omitting radiation more wildly and they also have a very powerful magnetic field.

    Pulsars and Magnetars combined: Self-explanatory.

    Hypervelocity Stars:
    They are the legitimate "shooting stars"

    Dark Energy
    : Scientist believe dark energy is gradually pulling the universe apart with ever increasing speeds. In theory, the energy will rip apart the entire universe one day, planet by planet and atom by atom.

    This is some of my favorites from the universe, feel free to add your favorites as I will be doing the same.

    Eagles Nebula: Is a young open clusters of stars found in the constellation of Serpens. Mostly composed of star-forming gas and dust. The "Eagle" is about 57 trillion miles tall.

    Black Holes: Not to be confused with the lame Raiders' fans. [Ha!] I assume everyone knows what a black hole is. Recently, Stephen W. Hawkins said escaping a black hole is possible, although extremely rare and difficult, the feat can be accomplished. It cannot be "confirmed" but he is the greatest thinker of our time.

    Super Earths: Are planets larger than our own Earth but not large enough to be considered gas giants. There are several different types of "super earths" and scientists are hopeful they can theoretically host life.

    2012 = Stupid way to scare the general public into buying shit.

    Anyone read A Brief History of Time? I haven't because I'm not that educated yet.

    i always found this video nuts
    really puts the size of the known universe into perspective

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGxRWCmwSDE

    at the end it starts talking about a divine creator and thats up to you to decide...
    but ignoring that....its a great demonstration
    mind blowing

    this crop circle shows the suggested formation of the planets on 2012...
    pluto is off a few degrees because its predicted something might hit it.
    most crop circles are ancient symbols and designs....
