The Milky Way



Science Daily: Physicist Makes New High-resolution Panorama Of Milky Way.

ScienceDaily (Oct. 29, 2009) — Cobbling together 3000 individual photographs, a physicist has made a new high-resolution panoramic image of the full night sky, with the Milky Way galaxy as its centerpiece. Axel Mellinger, a professor at Central Michigan University, describes the process of making the panorama in the November issue of Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific.

"This panorama image shows stars 1000 times fainter than the human eye can see, as well as hundreds of galaxies, star clusters and nebulae," Mellinger said. Its high resolution makes the panorama useful for both educational and scientific purposes, he says.

HOLY CRETACEOUS!! That is SOOO Amazing!! Did you hear that it's heavier and faster than previously thought?! :)

The reason? E=MC^2

I have heard that is spinning faster than predicted by conventional models which contradicts gravitation. That's why they invented the myths of Dark Matter, Dark Energy, and Dark Flow: epicycles on a debunked and failed model in order to "save the appearances."

In E = mc^2, mass is at best undefined or more usually defined incorrectly.

And c is a myth. There is no such thing as a vacuum and photons have been brought to a complete state of rest in a frozen sodium ion chamber.
