Yes, one of the questions is “Why are Israelis and Palestinians fighting?”
probably the best article with which to start if you want to understand what’s going on in the holy land.
If it all plays out as expected and budgeted, astronomers of the 2020s will be swimming in petabytes of data streaming from space and the ground. Herewith a report card on the future of big-time stargazing.
cool article about telescopes in the making.
strange desire feels really important. can’t really think of a better word to describe it. important. or put my finger on the exact emotion it invokes. it’s a series of emotions, really. maybe sort of a simultaneous longing and a belonging. and can’t really pick a favorite track because each feels necessary and almost equally important. to use that word again. terrible-thrills.

straight women who casually use the word “girlfriend” to refer to their platonic lady friends, i have nothing against you, but you make the world really confusing,
I love this because it means that just a little, heteronormativity has decreased

When you have a connection with someone, it never really goes away. You snap back to being important to each other because you still are.

An invisible force at the center of our galaxy
Scientists have theorized that our Milky Way galaxy has a super massive black hole at the center of it, but how did this idea come about? How do astronomers measure something that has actually never been seen in our telescopes?
Above is an animation of star movements in our galaxy over the past 16 years. They all orbit around a point that emits no light in our galaxy. We can measure the mass of these stars and calculate that their orbits require an object with the mass of 4 million Suns. So far this points to a super massive black hole in our galaxy.
