Science wisdom. It's so satisfying.

Now crack your brain on these things.

SUPERNOVAS

Aka suns that turn into black holes


A star that's up to 200-ish times as HUGE as our sun exploded into a supernova. Its name is SN 2006gy (catchy!), and it's 240 million light years away.

THE SHAPE OF THE UNIVERSE

Aka is it a sphere, does it look like a saddle, or is it flat and infinite? It's bigger than what we see, which is ALREADY a lot.

All of our images of the observable universe look like we're in the middle, but we aren't. Matter of possible-fact, there probably ISN'T a middle.

Via Space.com:

According to NASA, scientists know that the universe is flat with only about a 0.4 percent margin of error (as of 2013). A flat universe is an infinite universe; thus the size of the universe is infinite.
THE MULTIVERSE

Aka maybe our universe isn't even the only one!

Infinite universes, bubble universes, parallel universes, daughter universes, mathematical universes. They could ALL be possible. If infinity wasn't enough for you, think about the multiverse. I can't even begin to wrap my mind around this stuff, so I'm just going to contemplate the vastness.

Now take 30 more seconds.


Day changed?

In one of the most glaringly hypocritical moves in recent history, the band formerly known as Lady Antebellum is suing black blues singer Anita "Lady A" White, to use her stage name she's performed under for over three decades.

Lady Antebellum announced it had changed its name to Lady A on June 11 as part of its commitment to "examining our individual and collective impact and marking the necessary changes to practice antiracism."

Antebellum refers to an era in the American south before the civil war when black people were held as slaves.
