Limacina antarctica (Swimming sea snail) by Alexander Semenov


A strange lonely planet found without a star
An international team of astronomers has discovered an exotic young planet that is not orbiting a star. This free-floating planet, dubbed PSO J318.5-22, is just 80 light-years away from Earth and has a mass only six times that of Jupiter. The planet formed a mere 12 million years ago, a newborn in planet lifetimes.
"We have never before seen an object free-floating in space that looks like this. It has all the characteristics of young planets found around other stars, but it is drifting out there all alone," explained team leader Dr. Michael Liu of the Institute for Astronomy at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. “I had often wondered if such solitary objects exist, and now we know they do.”The discovery paper of PSO J318.5-22 is being published by Astrophysical Journal Letters and is available at http://arxiv.org/abs/1310.0457.

Hello!

williamshatner:

So I’m new to this but old to Social Media.  My purpose for being here is to blog about my experiences online and get out of the 140 character limit.

I have tried turning on the /ask feature but it’s just fills my inbox with random posts and questions that I see everywhere else. 

I’m going to try to do something different here - to manage the topic of conversations.  If you follow me you must wait 2 weeks before you can reply (it’s not my rule; it’s Tumblr.)

I look forward to discussing topics.  If you follow me on other social media sites you’ll know I take everything with a bit of fun; hopefully that will continue on this site as well.

I have to get started on my first blog.

My best, Bill

Hello and welcome. Cool to see you here!

I swear if someone tells me they changed the shape of his face and his age appearance with just some bronzer I will freak out.

#it’s because they’re like this in real life #they’ve known each other since childhood

I’m so glad you tagged this because I was like, “Oh yeah they’ve known each other since they were kids” and then I realized you meant the actors themselves and I hadn’t known that.

Ooohhhhhh
