NGC2736     Mon, Dec 24, 2007  Permanent link
There is a field of study called Plasma Cosmology that is, in my opinion, very interesting, and deals with much of the material shown here. Sometimes referred to as the Electric Universe, the theories involved try to explain the workings of the cosmos not in isolation, using only the weak but pervasive force of gravity alone as a cosmic connection, but the electromagnetic connectivity of space and all the bodies in it.

It's worth looking into.

I have a great and abiding interest in the cosmos, because there resides the future of my grandchildren's children. Sol is but a small, but vital to us, part of that whole.

When man is free of this one speck of rock, free to be galctic man, we will be not only safer, but enlarged as a species for the effort.

A bird does not spend eternity in the nest, lest it never learns to be a bird and fly before the wind.
