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

i think a woman who would never say “boyfriend” to refer to a platonic male friend using the word “girlfriend” for a platonic female friend and assuming everyone will know it is a non-romantic relationship evidently by very nature of it being between two women is actually kind of the definition of heteronormativity

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.

infinity-imagined:

The interior of a single cell in the brain, freeze fractured to reveal its organelles and imaged with a scanning electron microscope.  The nucleus is purple, DNA is pink, endoplasmic reticulum is green, ribosomes are blue, golgi apparatus is olive, vesicles are yellow, and mitochondria are red.  This image is part of a 600 megapixel mosaic, which can be seen in full resolution on gigapan.  The sample was prepared with the osmium maceration technique by Dr. Patrick Nahirney, and imaged, stitched and colorized by James Tyrwhitt Drake.

Just a friendly reminder that our cells are crowded, beautiful, and intricate bags of all kinds of whoknows and whatsit.

Previously: Follow this up with a look at the marvelous molecular melee that exists at the synapse between two nerves. It’s gorgeous. 

And definitely, definitely take a look at the hi-res gigapan of that cell up there. Oh my Golgi.
