Two Ads. One will Warm You and the Other will Warn You. The Remains of a Supernova. The Imaginarium.

Hello Troops,
Two great ads to start the evening off right.  One will warm you, the other is to warn you.

If this doesn't get your heart thumping and head spinning for the upcoming Olympics, nothing will.

And now to Warn you on the dangers of speeding and not driving aware.  This chilling video ad comes from New Zealand.

The Dusty Remains of a Supernova

See that reddish cloud inside this supernova's shockwave? It's a massive plume of dust that formed shortly after the star ripped itself to shreds. The observation was made using the the brand new ALMA telescope — and it's one that will help explain how galaxies got their dusty and dim complexion.
The image above is an artistic impression of Supernova 1987A — the closest observed supernovaexplosion since Johannes Kepler's observation of a supernova inside the Milky Way in 1604. It's located about 160,000 light-years away in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a dwarf galaxy orbiting the Milky Way. The visualization shows the cold, inner regions of the exploded star's remnants (in red) containing a tremendous amount of dust. The outer shell, shown in lacy white and blue circles, is where the blast wave from the supernova is colliding with the envelope of gas ejected from the star just before it detonated.
