  1. Beautiful galaxy choice Ibrahim! Is it a Hubble Heritage picture? I’d love to see the source of it to see what other pictures they may have. Is this saying that you are dusty and mysterious? That you are a sleeping beauty? Or is it just your favorite galaxy image?

    • No professor, I am most definitely not the Sleeping Beauty. Actually I got this image from another blog (I put the link in the image description, not the caption). What strikes me about this image is that science sometimes can be more arcane than magic itself. And it is these branches of science that so blatantly defy intuition that interest me. Because then science morphs into a whole new world where the only limit to possibility is imagination.

      • 🙂 Wow, very nice! They say that any technology that is sufficiently advanced is indistinguishable from magic but it could be that any _object_ big enough can have enough hidden that it is magic… Until we can see the whole thing from all angles, one just has to accept that we cannot know everything for certain. It’s one of the beauties of science, the sureness but also the faith 🙂
