    I was never all that good at physics, but if my sci-fi reading has a hint of truth, an expanding universe = expanding space. That should bring to mind E=MC2, which means expanding time.

    At that point, my head needs another single malt.

    eventually time itself will have no meaning as we approach the heat death of the universe in approx 10^100 years.

    i guess i'll have to reschedule my appointments then on MS Outlook.
    There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "My ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."- Isaac Asimov

    My wonderment never ceases.

    Wonder that we humans can get such stunning pictures.

    Most of all, wonder at how how space came to be.

    Not new but I found this one quite interesting:

    Hubble-Chandra Composite of ESO137-001

    Explanation: Spiral galaxy ESO 137-001 hurtles through massive galaxy cluster Abell 3627 some 220 million light years away. The distant galaxy is seen in this colorful Hubble/Chandra composite image through a foreground of the Milky Way's stars toward the southern constellation Triangulum Australe. As the spiral speeds along at nearly 7 million kilometers per hour, its gas and dust are stripped away when ram pressure with the cluster's own hot, tenuous intracluster medium overcomes the galaxy's gravity. Evident in Hubble's near visible light data, bright star clusters have formed in the stripped material along the short, trailing blue streaks. Chandra's X-ray data shows off the enormous extent of the heated, stripped gas as diffuse, darker blue trails stretching over 400,000 light-years toward the bottom right. The significant loss of dust and gas will make new star formation difficult for this galaxy. A yellowish elliptical galaxy, lacking in star forming dust and gas, is just to the right of ESO 137-001 in the frame.
