“These three bright nebulae are often featured in telescopic tours of the constellation Sagittarius and the crowded starfields of the central Milky Way. In fact, 18th century cosmic tourist Charles Messier cataloged two of them; M8, the large nebula left of center, and colorful M20 near the bottom of the frame The third, NGC 6559, is right of M8, separated from the larger nebula by dark dust lanes. All three are stellar nurseries about five thousand light-years or so distant. *Click image for larger size.* The expansive M8, over a hundred light-years across, is also known as the Lago... more »

If you're a regular reader here, you probably know the editorial position of this blog is that Trump is uniquely unfit to be president and that there are overwhelming and existential dangers this country would face were he to ever get into the White House. At the same time we're not sold on Hillary as anything more than a way to stop Trump and as an inspiring victory that finally cracks the ultimate glass ceiling for women. We've suggested that voters in this year's swing states-- Ohio, Iowa, Arizona, Georgia, Utah (and up in Maine's Alagash)-- take one of these to the polls and v... more »

It is also waning, however, among those nations considered long-time and crucial US allies.

Lead fans waved food stamps, yelling fake Indian war cries and epithets like "squaw" and "gut-eater."

Non-Fiction Review: The Proud Tower

Daniel Stack at 19th Level - 1 day ago
Though it's an older book, Barbara Tuchman's *The Proud Tower: A Portrait of the World Before the War, 1890-1914* makes for a very readable presentation on what the world of 1890-1914 was like. It is worth noting her focus was on the western world, centered around the United Kingdom, France, Russia, Germany, and the United States, as well their interactions with other countries. Tuchman noted that she deliberately does not discuss World War 1. It's an interesting choice, given how well we know it is looming over this book.
