Wikipedia with a list of Tyson quotes which makes me wonder why Mike doesn’t have a reality show yet.
“I really dig Hannibal. Hannibal had real guts. He rode elephants into Cartilage.”[To a female reporter] “It’s no doubt I am going to win this fight and I feel confident about winning this fight. I normally don’t do interviews with womens unless I fornicate with them. So you shouldn’t talk anymore… Unless you want to, you know.”
Another time drain for history buffs.
Good ole Hubble.
The problem, in part, is that the vast majority of supernovas that are spotted exist beyond our Milky Way Galaxy. While the supernovas become bright and obvious, it is challenging to resolve images of individual regular stars in other galaxies.
When a supernova in the Whirlpool galaxy was spotted in late June, plans were made to point Hubble that way. An image of the exploded star was made July 11.
In a Hubble archive image of the Whirlpool galaxy taken in January, astronomers were able to find the supernova’s progenitor star in the same location.
