Great Tyson's ghost!
If you're looking for some spooky listening for your Halloween, then aim your ectoplasmic resonator at astronomer Neil Tyson's Star Talk radio show, because last night he hunted ghosts… or at least, talked to some folks who know about ghosts. He chats ...

Spitzer sees star spew spurious spouts
Spitzer Space Telescope is an orbiting infrared observatory. It ran out of coolant a few years back — needed to keep its highly sensitive IR cameras working — but before it did, it took this amazing image of a young star blasting out twin jets of ...

What lurks beneath: the Bay Area's battle with invasive species in ballast water
But that argument doesn't hold water with Maurya Falkner, who heads up the State Lands Commission's Marine Invasive Species Program. She says it would be a huge mistake to turn back the clock with so many promising ballast-treating systems in the ...

The best commute ever
A little after five o'clock, and you might find yourself on your way back home after a long day at work. How would you describe your commute? A drag? Hilly, boring, sweaty, tedious? Those are a few of the words people in our newsroom used to describe ...

About the only way I can see those “knocking sounds” that ghost hunters hear being really from ghosts would be if the ghosts are playing a practical joke on the ghost hunters. “Hey, watch me get this ghost hunter running in circles. *knocks on walls prompting the ghost hunter to run after them from room to room*. Boy, those living are so much fun to mess with. “As always, talking with Neil is a lot of fun”. Talking with Nero (fiddler on a burning roof) is fun or Gengis Khan (the man who couldn´t stop gallopping) is fun or Queen Victoria (who gallopped a lot too with her horse keeper) is even fun too or Robert Oppenheimer (who thought he became…) who... People as always find ways to amaze me…. I used to have a janitorial business many years ago. One Halloween night, I went to do a job at a Showroom for a Funeral company. On my way, I was listening to “Ghost to Ghost”, the halloween ‘Coaast to Coast’ show with Art Bell. ) I was cleaning and polishing the caskets, and every creak and noise I heard in the building scared the crap out of me. The best Ghost movies I’ve seen are : Ghostbusters,Ghost Story,The Fog(orignal),and The Shining I do’nt think the dead are... Now there is another explation for ghosts that says they are not souls of the dead.
It ran out of coolant a few years back — needed to keep its highly sensitive IR cameras working — but before it did, it took this amazing image of a young star blasting out twin jets of matter:. Stars that young rotate rapidly, have fierce magnetic fields, and thick disks of material surrounding them (out of which planets might form). All these things together help focus twin beams of matter called jets, which blast away at high velocity from the star’s poles. But the jets blowing off of HH 34 are weird. Astronomers figured they should be. Sometimes the jets blow out knots of gas or sputter a little. And when that happens, whatever forces acting on the star and disk should act on both jets at the same time. But that’s not the case for HH 34: the jet on the right does the same thing the jet on the left does, but only after a 4. 5 year delay. Before, visible light images only showed one jet:. In the VLT image you can see the jet on the right, but the jet on the left is obscured by thick dust (though you can see the bow shock at the end of the jet as it slams to a halt after plowing through all the gas and dust surrounding the star). Once Spitzer was aimed HH 34’s way, the second jet was viewable — IR can pierce through all that dust — and the timing could be determined. You can watch an amazing animated GIF showing the motion of knots in the visible jet taken by Hubble Space Telescope, too.

16 In. Double Sided Iron Wall Clock with Black Iron Frame
The design of this wall clock is very European one could easily imagine it on the outside of a store front on a cobblestone lined street. The clock comes with a scroll like wall mount hook to hang the clock from adding to the character and charm.
