Don’t be fooled! The cosmic swirl of stars in this Hubble Space Telescope (@NASAHubble) image may seem tranquil and unassuming, but this spiral galaxy actually displays some explosive tendencies.
In October of 2011, a cataclysmic burst of high-energy gamma-ray radiation — known as a gamma-ray burst — was detected coming from the region of sky containing this galaxy. Astronomers believe that the galaxy was the host of the burst, given that the chance of a coincidental alignment between the two is roughly 1 in 10 million. At a distance of around 185 million light-years from Earth, it was the second-closest gamma-ray burst ever detected.

há anos a Creatina vem sendo estudada e sem duvidas é um dos suplementos mais eficazes do mercado. A creatina possui várias funções, uma delas é melhorar o seu rendimento em alguns tipos de treinamento como a musculação entre outros exercícios cujo maior uso de energia seja através do sistema ATP-CP. A creatina ela é quebrada dentro do músculo e a partir dessa quebra libera-se energia(ATP), é esta energia que você utiliza em cada repetição em maior quantidade no caso da musculação, logo se você possuir mais creatina no músculo maior será o rendimento neste treinamento. Além de melhorar a performance ela ainda ajuda na recuperação muscular, através da expressão de IGF-1 (Fator de crescimento 1) o que pode ajudar em casos de resistência a insulina pois também aumenta os transportadores de glicose GLUT1 e GLUT4. Quando utilizar? Pode ser utilizada em qualquer horário do dia, mas o momento mais oportuno seria no pós treino. Embora possua várias funcionalidades a creatina não serve para qualquer pessoa e pode não trazer resultados se não for colocada dentro de um contexto, contexto esse que o nutricionista irá avaliar a necessidade deste uso. #davidsonutri#nutricao#nutricaoesportiva#praticaanabolica#suplementacao#science
Any last minute shoppers left? 🎄 I have some recommendations for the science kid in your life. We love books and my son specifically loves science books. Anything that can answer his 1,000,002 million questions per day. If he keeps reading them we’ll keep buying them (or borrowing them...😅). Even I read them! I’m a big fan of science books that “grow” with your child. We search for age appropriate books that don’t dumb things down. That also means that some don’t look like kids books. Start them young, right? Our top two favourite collections are: 1. Theodore Gray 2. Basher Science. They have something for everyone. 👨🔬 Swipe to see a few more books that are constantly opened up in our house. 😊 I’ll be adding more to instastories so stay tuned! #scienceiscool 🔬
If you’re hoping to develop new habits in the new year, check this out. Cue + routine + reward all driven by the intentional development of a craving yields habit formation. Go after those 2018 goals with a lil science on your side 👊🏻#habits#powerofhabit#goals#science#gogetemtiger#dreams
Touching ancient history, experiencing the fossils, the song Light My Fire sparked my mind. A heat, within, that melted right through to my core. The relationship difficult to understand between these magnificent skeletal specimens and the song. The remnants from the Mesozoic Era, when the supercontinent, Pangaea, continued to spilt and dinosaurs roamed the terrestrial. Information raced through my thoughts. Inward, the universal physical constant at 186282.4 miles per second. Light speed. I suddenly felt lightheaded.
Welcome Mary, to Dinosaur National Monument. Dinosaur fossil beds dated at 150 million years old in the quarries and the badlands of Utah. This dinosaur 🦕hugger and stargazer 💫 had found Elysium. We spent nine days, breathing dinosaur fossils on the cliff face, and inside both the Carnegie and Cleveland-Lloyd Quarry Exhibit Halls. One snap is of an intern, in uniform, to gauge the scale of the fossils. We drove out to touch petroglyphs, which hint at earlier cultures, such as, NewsPaper Rock, a grandiose ancient mural of symbols. Walking along the dinosaur stomping grounds paths, we sat and gazed at genuine dinosaur tracks. Over 2,300 prehistoric footprints on two acres! We all thought we heard music, experiencing it all, on an ethereal plain. We were moved to dance and sing around them, filling the tracks with our imagination..excerpt from Professor Dad memoirs. Late Spring 2016..🦉💖🎼🎭🤹♀️📚🎪⚾️🇨🇺🏴..#dinosaur#nationalpark#inspiration#fossil#paleontology#paleontologist#science#ancient#history#digitalpainting#utah#adventure#travel
Imagine men of Patrouille de France, who are known as the precision aerobatic demonstration team of the French Air Force. 💪Kind of macho probably, right? Now... imagine those kind of macho man doing a tender ballet with their hands, with very precise, small movements. Together, in sync, with their eyes closed. The result is a stunning, intimate and almost touching spectacle. This photo is a still of the work made by @sjoerdknibbeler 'Forming Synchrony' 2016 and commissioned by Villa Noailles and made in collaboration with the Patrouille de France. His work is now exhibited at @collectiedegroen.
