"Busca a las personas que no tienen miedo de equivocarse y, por lo tanto, se equivocan. Por eso, no siempre se les reconoce su trabajo. Pero ése es el tipo de gente que transforma al mundo y, después de muchos errores, logra acertar en algo que hará una completa diferencia en su comunidad."

Saturn’s Aurorae

This picture from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope’s Advanced Camera for Surveys shows Saturn almost edge on, giving a unique opportunity to view the planet’s aurorae at both poles simultaneously.

Saturn’s rings may be particles of an old moon orbiting the planet, smashed apart in a collision millions years ago.

Fact:

The transfer of Information in any form is limited to the speed of light. If our Sun suddenly disappeared, it would take 8 minutes for the last photon emitted by the Sun to reach Earth; the Earth would be lit for 8 minutes before darkening. What’s even stranger is that the Earth would remain in its orbit and revolve around nothing for the entire 8 minutes! Even the force of gravitation can’t travel faster than light.

IC 1805: The Heart Nebula 

Sprawling across almost 200 light-years, emission nebula IC 1805 is a mix of glowing interstellar gas and dark dust clouds. Derived from its Valentine’s-Day-approved shape, its nickname is the Heart Nebula. About 7,500 light-years away in the Perseus spiral arm of our galaxy, stars were born in IC 1805.

In fact, near the cosmic heart’s center are the massive hot stars of a newborn star cluster also known as Melotte 15, about 1.5 million years young. A little ironically, the Heart Nebula is located in the constellation of the mythical Queen of Aethiopia (Cassiopeia). This deep view of the region around the Heart Nebula spans about two degrees on the sky or about four times the diameter of the Full Moon.

Jupiter From Beneath

Jupiter’s southern hemisphere is rendered into a mass of concentric cloud patterns in this unusual view, constructed from data gathered with the Cassini spaceprobe during its December 2000 fly-by of the giant planet. The image stitches together data from 36 separate exposures taken over the course of nine hours as the spaceprobe passed by some 10 million kilometres (6.2 million miles) away. Despite an equatorial diameter 11 times larger than Earth’s, Jupiter rotates in less than ten hours, wrapping high- and low-pressure weather systems into parallel bands around the equator.

Newly Discovered Shrew Has Spine of Steel

by Kelly Servick

It’s the size of large rat, but it can reportedly withstand the weight of an adult man standing on its back.

The Mangbetu people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo wore it as a talisman in battle, hoping for invincibility. Meet the hero shrew (Scutisorex somereni), a rodent that owes its near-mythological status to a remarkable spine, thickened by extensions of bone that interlock like fingers.

The structure was thought to be unique among mammals—until now. An international team of researchers in the village of Baleko, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, made a surprising find: a slightly different shrew with a similarly “heroic” backbone. Today in Biology Letters, they introduce Thor’s hero shrew (S. thori), named for mammalogist Thorvald Holmes, but invoking the Norse god of strength.

The new species (pictured) has a smaller and less bumpy skull; flatter ribs; and shorter, silkier fur than its sister species, the team reports, but genetic tests and x-rays reveal that it’s undeniably Scutisorex (bottom spine, inset, as compared to S. somereni, middle, and a non-Scutisorex shrew, top)…
