Do you ever get jealous of someone who interacts really well with a really close friend of yours, not because you have a crush on your friend or anything but because you’re jealous of how much you pale in comparison to them when you see how much of a better friend they are to the one you’re close to?
I have very strong feelings about this “viva la pluto” movement. Whenever I see the tag I get so upset because most of the time it’s just “I LIKE PLUTO BECAUSE IT’S WHAT I GREW UP WITH AND CHANGE IS BAD. IT’S NOT ALLOWED TO CHANGE BECAUSE SOMEHOW THIS FROZEN BODY IS ALIVE AND IS GOING TO BE SAD ABOUT BEING LEFT BEHIND”.
This is very disappointing for a generation that supposedly embraces science. If you say viva la pluto and you’re just having fun and reblogging because it’s a funny post or something, that’s cool. I’m guilty of reblogging a cartoon Pluto, but it was adorable. What annoys me is the people that say it and WHOLEHEARTEDLY mean it. If you want to have that strong of an opinion, have a reason. Explain using science vocabulary instead of “FUCK YEAH”.
Heart and Soul
The Soul Nebula is emission nebulae in Cassiopeia. Several small open clusters are embedded in the nebula: CR 34, 632, and 634 (in the head) and IC1848 (in the body). The object is more commonly called by the cluster designation IC1848.
The Heart Nebula lies some 7500 light years away from Earth and is located in the Perseus Arm of the Galaxy in the constellation Cassiopeia. This is an emission nebula showing glowing gas and darker dust lanes. The nebula is formed by plasma of ionized hydrogen and free electrons.
The very brightest part of this nebula is separately classified as NGC 896, because it was the first part of this nebula to be discovered.
oh wow the new league champ is out
