Sorry, I can't resist. With this post, I have 4314 posts. But NGC 4314 is a fantastically interesting galaxy, which has been portrayed by Hubble. It is a stately, majestic, grand-design spiral with a very prominent bar. It is a looker, there's no other word for it.

NGC 4314 is also "red and dead". It has stopped forming stars. Well, almost! Because it does have a nuclear ring of intense star formation, and outside this ring is a population of "circa A-type", blue stars. The A-type stars form incipient, stubby arms. IN the middle there is a yellow nucleus and undoubtedly a supermassive black hole.


Another quite fantastic picture of NGC 4314 is the one at right by Bruce Pipes. You can see the extremely elegant shape of the galaxy and the small colorful features near the nucleus. The rest of the galaxy is virtually colorless, although the background stars are seen to be colored.

I just had to celebrate my 4314th post with these two pictures! :D

Ann

P.S. Congratulations, Owlice, you are going to celebrate your 7000th post very shortly! :D

Russia launches [15 geckos] into space on one-month journey
By Miriam Kramer, April 19, 2013

<<An intrepid critter crew of geckos, mice and gerbils and other animals launched into orbit Friday (April 19) to begin a month-long Russian experiment to study how space travel affects living creatures. The space mission, scientists assure, will return the animals to Earth alive.

The new animal astronauts launched into orbit at 6 a.m. EDT (1000 GMT) atop a Russian-built Soyuz 2 rocket that lifted off from Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan, in Central Asia. The rocket carried the Bion-M1 space capsule, which is filled with enclosures for 45 mice, eight Mongolian gerbils, 15 geckos and numerous other species. They are expected to spend a month in orbit, flying 357 miles above Earth while scientists on the ground monitor the health of the capsule's passengers. [See photos of the Bion-M1 space animals mission]

"There has been a long history of this kind of biological research over the past 40 years, and NASA and the Russian side have been collaborating for that entire time, which is pretty remarkable. But each mission kind of brings a unique focus, be it the actual duration of the mission or the specimens being flown," Nicole Rayl, project manager for NASA's portion of the mission, told SPACE.com. While the project is run by Russia's Federal Space Agency, also called Roscosmos, an international team of scientists is overseeing the mission's many experiments.

Bion-M1 is Russia's first mission dedicated to launching animals into space in 17 years. The last Bion mission carried rhesus monkeys, geckos and amphibians into orbit for 15 days in 1996. And while there have been other animal-centric launches since that time, the Bion-M1 mission is the longest flight of its kind in the Russian science program's 40-year history. For this reason, Bion-M1 is designed to help scientists understand how long-duration human spaceflight might affect astronauts, Rayl said. "The unique nature of this mission is that it's a 30-day mission, so it's longer than a lot of the other animal and biological missions we've flown," Rayl said. "The big importance for us is that we get to compare data from this longer mission with better analytical tools that we have today, [compared] to the missions we've flown in the past that were similar but not exactly the same."

After a month in orbit, the Bion-M1 spacecraft will fall to Earth and scientists will collect the animals and run tests. While the mice, gerbils, geckos and other creatures should survive their plunge through the Earth's atmosphere, scientists will need to humanely euthanize the animals in order to get the data they need, Rayl added.>>

Russian Animal Orbiter Returns --- With Most Critters Dead
By Erik Derr, May 19, 2013 05:10 PM EDT

<<Roscosmos, Russia's Federal Space Agency, launched 45 mice, eight Mongolian gerbils, 15 geckos, a handful of snails and numerous other species to test how long stretches in a zero-gravity environment affect living creatures. But, less than half of the cosmic critters survived the flight, Russian news agencies, along with the Global Post, reported. According to Russian scientists, the animals on board the Bion-M craft either expired from of the stresses of space or because of equipment failure.

Scientists explained before the mission the experiment was intended to test the effects of weightlessness and other factors of space flight on cell structure. One of the areas researchers will be focused on is how being in outer-space impacted animals' reproductive processes, said a report by Space.com

Russian state television showed the capsule and some of its inhabitants after it landed Sunday in a planted field near Orenburg, about 750 miles southeast of Moscow. The report said not all of the animals survived the flight. Vladimir Sychov, deputy director of the Institute of Medical and Biological Problems, said it was the first time that animals had spent so much time in space on their own. The surviving travelers were to be flown back to Moscow, where a previous report indicated they will be euthanized and then studied.

Nicole Rayl, a project manager for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, who participated in the mission, said last month that the month in space was "longer than a lot of the other animal and biological missions we've flown. The big importance for us is that we get to compare data from this longer mission with better analytical tools that we have today, [compared] to the missions we've flown in the past that were similar but not exactly the same.">>

Did one species survive more than another species though? I wonder which ones died.

Sketchy article, but the geckos and snails survived just fine. The article mistakenly refers to the geckos as newts. The differences between the two types of creatures are not all that subtle!

You may not be able to keep up with bystander but you are surely the best post count sentry we have. Owlice's 7000th post was in a hidden section of the forum. I need to somehow work Accipitridae into your naively (it's just the first letter that counts, right? guys?) alliterated title. Accipitridaeous Abstruse Allusion Artificer?

I was out at the beach building sand castles with my grandson Kai so when I got back & checked the members post count board to see if Owlice had finally passed 7K she was right on it by pure coincidence. I can now relax again until Orin hits 4K (or Margarita hits 1K).

Geckzilla, in this case, ALL the letters are important, because they spell out something that most likely eats geckos :!: So be ready to protect your "A", the first letter. :mrgreen:

ACCIPITRIDAEOUS reminds me ever so slightly of Aspidistra.

Looking like a refugee from the Addams Family's garden, a new species of Aspidistra plant is among the recently announced finds from the Annamite mountain range of central Vietnam.

Aspidistra nicolai was named in honor of the late Russian botanist Nicolai Arnautov, a senior gardener at the St. Petersburg Botanical Gardens who headed the facility's Aspidistra cultivation program.

Keep the Aspidistra Flying

<<Keep the Accipitridae Aspidistra Flying, first published 1936, is a socially critical novel by George Orwell. It is set in 1930s London. The main theme is Gordon Comstock's romantic ambition to defy worship of the money-god and status, and the dismal life that results.

"The types he saw all round him, especially the older men, made him squirm. That was what it meant to worship the money-god! To settle down, to Make Good, to sell your soul for a villa and an aspidistra! To turn into the typical bowler-hatted sneak - Strube's 'little man' [-] What a fate!" (Ch III)

The Aspidistra is a hardy, long-living plant that is used as a house plant in England. It was especially popular in the Victorian era, in large part because it could not only tolerate weak sunlight but also could tolerate the poor indoor air quality that resulted from the use of oil lamps and, later, coal gas lamps. They had fallen out of favour by the 20th century, not coincidentally paralleling the advent of electric lighting. Their use had been so widespread among the middle class that they had become a music hall joke appearing in songs such as "Biggest Aspidistra in the World", of which Gracie Fields made a recording.>>

I fell asleep waiting for our Resident Geezer to break 4K. ZZZZ....

But since his 3999 is the reverse of my 9993, I'll post anyway (just to get me closer to 10K).

So, Mr. Neufer, the poster with the second moster... got any plans to celebrate hitting the BIG 10,000 :?: :?:
Or perhaps just a snooze in the chair to help recuperate, like the rest of us old as dirters :?: :lol2:
