Flash! Star Eats Planet. See Below
The UofH has joined with the originator of this project. Mark Chase, in proposing to participate in a similar initiative announced by the Al Gore when Vice President of the United States. Until the camera is in place and up and running, the UofH will offer a virtual view of our planet.
Occasionally our telecamera points in an opposite direction. On September 2003 in "the Wall Street Journal" it found astronomers Andrew Fabian and Steven Allen of Cambridge University's Institute of Astronomy discussing a 'supermassive black hole' [probably similar to that which Flash vistors to the UofH experience as they pass into our parallel universe].
Reported also in "Il Sole 24 Ore" on 12 Sep. 03 it seems that the lowest recorded sound ever is coming from this massive black hole near galaxy NGC 7742. In the photo reproduced from the Hubble, deep in space, telescope there appears to be a yellow center surrounded by stars and a bluish background. This could be the first terrestial sighting of our UofH parallel unverse.
Meanwhile we can only relish the kind of numbers that our friends on Planet Nasdaq would wish their share prices to achieve.
Try these: The massive black hole at the center of the Perseus cluster is about 250 million light years away. A light year is about 9.46 trillion kilometers. Hey!
(18.10.03 - Il Sole 24 ore) Mangiapianeta!
Star V838 Monocerotis in constellation Unicorn observed by the Hubble Space Telescope - Eating a planet. Amateur Australian astronomer, Nicholas Brown was the first to spot the phenomenon. Then Alon Retter and Ariel Marom of the University of Sydney hopped on the case finding two more planets being consumed, created much illumination in the process.
UofH: Obviously these planets are simply passing into the colorful parallel universe of the UofH. More later when we've identified and 'facultized' them.
