Are we all perhaps linked by invisible bonds? Do the actions of one affect others, even if those others are far away? Our lives and the universe itself may be all part of a single mechanism in which all creatures and events are 'entangled' with one another.

Stellar Fireworks

With the 4th of July coming up I thought I'd put up this new photo taken by the Hubble Space Telescope of some spectacular "fireworks" in space. It may not look that impressive in a photo, but this galaxy (NGC 4449) is made up of hundreds of thousands of blue and red stars!
Stars are forming here at a much higher rate than in NGC 4449's past, resulting in what is known as a "starburst".
This picture is from here to visit their site for more on these "stellar fireworks".
