SS: UPDATED 11-09-14: the kilauea flow started in june and was followed by the bardarbunga eruption and both have continued to show no stopping in flow of magma. there must be some reason why there are two major hotspots flowing magma at the same time. we have had several other volcanos going into eruption lately in central america and indonesia.

Northern Lights, Milky Way and an erupting VOLCANO captured in one jaw-dropping photo in Iceland  7 November 2014 Managing to capture the elusive Northern Lights is a feat in itself. But three natural wonders all in the one photograph? That certainly makes for spectacular picture.  Scottish photographer Maciej Winiarczyk got the Northern Lights, the Milky Way and an erupting volcano all in one shot during a recent trip to Iceland. The aurora-chaser, from Wick, Caithness, was at Jokulsarlon Lagoon when he photographed the Bardarbunga volcano erupting on October 21. The eruption is Iceland’s largest in over 200 years and is still going on today.

Bardarbunga volcano update: Continuing eruption formed a 70 km² lava flow and caused 44 m of caldera subsidence since its onset on August 31 Sunday Nov 09, 2014 The volcanic eruption at Holuhraun gives no signs of weakening and continues to eject an impressive lava fountain from the central Baugur crater at a rate similar to the past few weeks. This record-breaking eruption started on the 31st of August 2014 and formed a more than 17 km long lava flow. Using the successive outlines of this lava flow as drawn on a radar image from the Icelandic Coast Guard, researchers from the Institute of Earth Sciences estimated that by now the lava has covered an area of 70 km².

Geothermal Heat in Bárðarbunga Melts Glacier October 31, 2014 The energy of the geothermal areas in Bárðarbunga volcano in Vatnajökull now measures several hundred megawatts and the melting of glacial ice is estimated at approximately 2 cubic meters per second. The melt water flows into glacial rivers Skjálfandafljót and Jökulsá á Fjöllum. However, the water flow is too insignificant to cause the rivers to swell, the Icelandic Met Office concludes in its latest update on the volcano, published at noon today.

Iceland’s Bardarbunga volcano has now emitted the most lava of any volcano in that geologically active country since at least 1947, and continues with no sign of stopping. The volcano is also emitting clouds of toxic sulfur dioxide gases, which have made it all the way to Europe at times, thanks to northwesterly winds. The eruption is taking place in an old lava field known as Holuhraun, and according to National Geographic , the volcano has now vaulted so much molten rock to the surface that it would fill at least 740 Empire State Buildings.

The lava flow from the Kalauea Volcano is seen split into two separate lobes in this aerial picture taken near the village of Pahoa, Hawaii October 24, 2014. The lava began flowing from the Kilauea Volcano on June 27 and as of October 24 the flow front was 0.7 miles (1.2 km) from Pahoa Village Road, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. About 4,000 people overall live in the residential communities that the lava is approaching. Picture taken October 24, 2014.

Dozens of residents in this rural area of Hawaii were placed on alert as flowing lava continued to advance. Authorities on Sunday, Oct. 26, 2014 said lava had advanced about 250 yards since Saturday morning and was moving at the rate of about 10 to 15 yards an hour, consistent with its advancement in recent days. The flow front passed through a predominantly Buddhist cemetery, covering grave sites in the mostly rural region of Puna, and was roughly a half-mile from Pahoa Village Road, the main street of Pahoa.

SS: the sun started x-flaring during the Siding Spring Mars flyby and continued with multiple x-flares through the solar eclipse. the latest X3 flare did not produce a coronal mass ejection.. the siding spring mars eclipse sequence ends with a x-flare storm .

X1-CLASS SOLAR FLARE: This comes as no surprise. Behemoth sunspot AR2192 has unleashed an X1-class solar flare. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded the blast in this extreme UV image of the sun on Oct. 19th (0500 UT):

MONSTER SUNSPOT: The biggest sunspot of the current solar cycle is turning toward Earth. This morning when astronomer Karzaman Ahmad of Malaysia’s Langkawi Nagtional Observatory looked through the eyepiece of his solar telescope, he declared AR2192 a “monster” and snapped this picture:

LOTS OF SOLAR FLARES: Solar activity is high. During the past 48 hours, monster sunspot AR2192 has produced a series of seven M-class solar flares of increasing intensity. The eruptions crossed the threshold into X-territory with an X1-class flare on Oct. 22nd. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded a powerful flash of extreme UV radiation in the sunspot’s magnetic canopy at 14:30 UT:

ANOTHER X-FLARE: Giant sunspot AR2192 erupted again on Oct. 24th (21:40 UT), producing a powerful X3-class solar flare. Using a backyard solar telescope, Sergio Castillo of Corona, California, was monitoring the sunspot when it exploded, and he snapped this picture:

GIANT SUNSPOT CRACKLING WITH FLARES: AR2192 is the biggest sunspot in nearly 25 years, and it is still growing. The active region now covers 2750 millionths of the solar disk, an area equivalent to more than 16 planet Earths skinned and spread out flat. It is so large that sky watchers are seeing it with the naked eye when the sun is dimmed by low-hanging clouds or, in this case, dense fog:

A total lunar eclipse, also known as a “blood moon”, is pictured from Encinitas, California October 8, 2014. The coppery, reddish color the moon takes is made as it passes into Earth’s shadow. The total eclipse is the second of four over a two-year period that began April 15 and concludes on Sept. 28, 2015. The total eclipse is the second of four over a two-year period that began April 15 and concludes on Sept. 28, 2015. The so-called tetrad is unusual because the full eclipses are visible in all or parts of the United States, according to retired NASA astrophysicist Fred Espenak.

SS: apparently the germans have different #Ebola protocols than the usa. and personally i am not convinced that those P95 or P100 clothe masks they are wearing is enough. regardless of whether i would wear a cloth mask or a full respirator mask is beside the point i am attempting to make here. according to german protocol they are getting hosed down by bleach before removing their contaminated #Ebola suits. everyone who has their #Ebola suits take note that you will require to bleach yourself down at the entrance of your home before removing your #ebola suits.

SS: i do not listen to anything obama says regarding catastrophes. obama’s catastrophe crisis track record is not very good. 1. we think he stop the oil leak in the gulf but we can’t really prove it. 2. obama stopped monitoring for fukushima radiation only one month after the accident and has done absolutely nothing except cover up fukushima radiation and the western coast. 3. the Louisiana methane sinkhole has been releasing massive amounts of methane into the atmosphere for two years and and obama pretends it doesnt exist. 

SS: my new book “Of the Obama Mahabharata Catastrophes” talks about these different mega-catastrophes. and… for the price of a burger and fries from mcdonalds i give some good advices how to cure yourselves. research science study showed us that if a person is able to remove radioactive particles from the body faster than accumulate them will drastically improve life span. and that if stop ingesting radiation that all the damage done can be nearly and even completely healed.

Of the California “Offshore” Fukushima Plume

fukishima_radiation_prediction01

fukishima_radiation_prediction02

SS: we now have two separate sources now making nearly the same predictions that the fukushima plume has reached california coast but that it has so far stayed just offshore. one source says that the shelves along the california coast would hold back the radiation plume for awhile but that eventually it would reach the beaches. Woods Hole Oceangraphic Institute has basically confirmed this prediction when he said:

“I’m not concerned… There is definitely offshore Fukushima cesium now… It’s not on the beaches, but it’s offshore.” (Ken Buesseler, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)

SS: the fukushima radiation has not reached the beaches… yet. from the look at the latest predictions they believe the radiation will hit the beaches in 2016. if this prediction is true then our other source prediction for the radiation plume to pass over the shelves in 2014-2017. This might indicate that between 2014 – 2017 is not the best time to head out to the beach on the west coast.

SS: i would like to point out as i did in my new book Of the Obama Mahabharata Catastrophes, that Obama admin is not monitoring the Pacific Ocean or California coast for fukushima radiation. and as i pointed out in my book that there seems to be a coverup of fukushima radiation affecting the west coast. of course there is otherwise the usa would be monitoring for fukushima radiation. people on the west coast have a right to have knowledge to make an informed decision … which west coasters do not have this freedom .pretending catastrophes did not happen makes the catastrophes worse and harder to deal with later.

Fukushima Plume Prediction from Woods Hole Oceanographic Inst. PLUS 1 week ago ALL AUDIENCES Radioactive contaminants from Fukushima are carried across the Pacific Ocean by currents, the strongest of which is the Kuroshio, and spread along the West Coast of North America by complex coastal processes. Models predict that radionuclides from Fukushima will begin to arrive on the West Coast in early 2014, mainly in the north (Alaska and British Columbia) and then move further south in coming years before appearing in Hawaii in small amounts. The concentration of contaminants is expected to be well below limits set by the U.S. EPA for cesium-137 in drinking water (7,400 Bq/m3) or even the highest level recorded in the Baltic Sea after Chernobyl (1,000 Bq/m3)

Fukushima radiation nearing West Coast October 17, 2014 Radiation from Japan’s Fukushima nuclear disaster is approaching the West Coast, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is reporting. A sample taken Aug. 2 about 1,200 kilometers west of Vancouver, B.C. tested positive for Cesium 134, the Fukushima “fingerprint” of Fukushima. It also showed higher-than-background levels of Cesium 137, another Fukushima isotope that already is present in the world’s oceans from nuclear testing in the 1950s and 1960s.

Lagrangian studies of the ocean circulation Instituto de Física Interdisciplinar y Sistemas Complejos (IFISC) Published on May 26, 2014 Description: Although the Eulerian and Lagrangian descriptions of fluid motion are theoretically equivalent, this talk suggests that the latter has many advantages when investigating the ocean circulation. In the first example, I will present a novel Lagrangian methodology which identifies optimally coherent structures (Agulhas Rings) within a time varying simulated velocity field in the South Atlantic Ocean. This technique allows extracting the 3D shape of a ring, tracking its evolution over space and time while accurately measuring the amount of water remaining in the structure. We demonstrate that our method detects structures that are more coherent over time than the 3D eddies obtained from classical Eulerian techniques. In another example, I use Lagrangian trajectories to estimate the future long-term pathways of the radioactive water accidentally released in the North Pacific Ocean following the March 2011 Fukushima disaster. With a half-life of 30.1 years, Cesium-137 has the potential to travel large distances within the ocean. Based on an ensemble of eddy-resolving simulations, our results suggest that the contaminated plume would have been rapidly diluted by July 2011. The differential intrusion of the plume over the northwestern American shelves in 2014-2017 can be explained by both local and basin-scale processes. Fukushima-derived Cs-137 will penetrate the interior ocean and spread to other oceanic basins over the next three decades. Discussing the sensitivity of our results to uncertainties in the source function, the advantages of the Lagrangian approach are evidenced.

SS: what is going on with #Ebola ?? the obama administration refuses, not just refuses but actually fights, to not halt flights from infected countries. this alone should be enough to clue us in that the obama admin and CDC tom friedman are doing the very minimal to contain this #ebola from spreading in the USA. Obama admin keeps repeating over and over that #Ebola is not like the flu that we cannot catch it from being airborne. obama admin claims it is instead like aids that can only be spread via bodily fluid contact, objects infected with ebola, or infected animals.

SS: therefoere based upon what the obama admin is spreading throughout the land about #ebola the CDC has implemented the very minimal of protocols. nurses have been told they can just wear a gown, mask, and face shield… yet two nurses following these protocols are now sick with a %50 chance of survival and all tom friedman can tell us is about how something wasn’t done right, mistakes were made, and so sad to bad about the nurses being sick. that is the attitude. the two nurses are sick due to the obama admin and the CDC incompetence.. period.

SS: i believe in doing things different. instead of doing the very minimum i think we should do more the maximum to protect americans, their families, and children. of course this makes to much sense for obama and his hosts of ebola zombies who follow him..  if we recall the obama admin used this same strategy as clouds of iodine-131 radiation flew across the USA. the obama admin told everyone to not use iodine that it would hurt americans. they lied. i personally have been taking iodine since the day of the fukushima catastrophe with no harmful side effects. listening to the obama admin is simply hazardous to our health.

SS: it would be better for americans to take full precautions against #Ebola rather than obamas do the very minimal. in fact obamas policy of doing the very minimal could be considered negligence. the virus has spread to the usa because obama refused to halt flights from infected countries. it is a fact that the duncan fellow hopped onto an airplane and flew into Dallas and his arrival could have been prevented had obama halted flights. it is a fact that two nurses have gotten sick caring for duncan fellow using the CDC protocols.

SS: Obama admins and tom friedmans attempts to finger point in the face of a catastrophe instead of halting flights and doing the maximum protocols proves they are at the least incompetent. Mistakes have already been made and they are going to continue to make mistakes because they are not trying to stop this virus. instead they are *ALLOWING* the virus to take hold and spread.

SS: for regular readers of my blog i will tell you how to side step this #ebola problem. first the ebola virus infection has a much harder time attacking cells in a high alkaline ph body. this means that the very first thing a person should do are the things i have described in my new book “Of the Obama Mahabharata Catastrophes” to fight a fungus such as cancer caused by radiation poisoning. second, we need the ability to attack the virus, fungus, or bacteria. once again using the same suggestions in my book we do have the possibilities to attack and kill virus. the us government under obama has once again (like he told everyone not to use iodine during the fukushima clouds) told everyone not to use “colloidal silver”, yet it is well known to attack and kill virus, fungus, and bacteria. collodial silver has been shown in tests to inhibit virus that use glycoprotien binding the inability to bind to host cells. and of course organic vitamins, especially vitamin c. if have a strong immune system then you can be immune to #ebola.

SS: i think should be prepared by obtaining ebola suits which include a respirators. this is not a halloween joke, instead this is real. take the #ebola threat serious. store food and water. add .999 silver coins to water to keep it fresh. cook all food and filter all water with carbon filters. i am keeping several bags of pool shock to use as a cleaning solutions like bleach.

CDC: You Can Give—But Can’t Get—Ebola on a Bus October 15, 2014 “I think there are two different parts of that equation,” he continued. “The first is, if you’re a member of the traveling public and are healthy, should you be worried that you might have gotten it by sitting next to someone? And the answer is no.” “Second, if you are sick and you may have Ebola, should you get on a bus? And the answer to that is also no. You might become ill, you might have a problem that exposes someone around you,” he said.

‘Who’s the idiot with the clipboard?’ Disbelief and panic as mystery man WITHOUT a hazmat suit helps second Ebola nurse board her plane to Atlanta, disposes waste and then climbs aboard 15 October 2014 | As news helicopters swarmed over Dallas’ Love Field on Wednesday evening to watch the second U.S. nurse to contract Ebola board a private plane bound for Atlanta, one lone mysterious man stood out from the pack. Holding a clipboard and directing the transfer, the unidentified man seemed to be the only person on the tarmac without protective clothing, wearing just a button down shirt and slacks. While Ebola is not an airborne disease, his presence so close to patient Amber Vinson’s medical team sparked fears after he was seen grabbing a container and hazmat trash bag from one of the workers’ in full-protective gear and later boarding the flight. He then flew with Vinson and the other hazmat-suited medical staff to Atlanta and local television crews spotted him with the stricken nurse as she disembarked at the airport in Georgia to be transferred to Emory University Hospital. ABC News reports that the man is a supervisor for Phoenix Air, the company that flew Miss Vinson from Dallas to Atlanta. When the plane landed in Atlanta, the man had still not donned any protective clothing and was seen openly interacting with Vinson and the other medical professionals caring for the nurse. 

Detection of cell-cell fusion mediated by Ebola virus glycoproteins.2006 Mar;80(6):2815-22.Ebola viruses (EboV) are enveloped RNA viruses infecting cells by a pH-dependent process mediated by viral glycoproteins (GP) involving endocytosis of virions and their routing into acidic endosomes. As with well-characterized pH-dependent viral entry proteins, in particular influenza virus hemagglutinin, it is thought that EboV GP require activation by low pH in order to mediate fusion of the viral envelope with the membrane of endosomes.

Fusion of viral and cellular membranes is pH dependent. “The plasma membrane of eukaryotic cells serves as a barrier against invading parasites and viruses. To infect a cell, viruses must be capable of transporting their genome and accessory proteins into the host cell, bypassing or modifying the barrier properties imposed by the plasma membrane. Entry into the host cells always involves a step of membrane fusion for enveloped animal viruses. Other enveloped viruses such as orthomyxoviruses, alphaviruses or rhabdoviruses enter the cells by the endocytic pathway, and fusion depends on the acidification of the endosomal compartment. Fusion at the endosome level is triggered by conformational changes in viral glycoproteins induced by the low pH of this cellular compartment.”[1]

In membrane biology, fusion is the process by which two initially distinct lipid bilayers merge their hydrophobic cores, resulting in one interconnected structure. The conformational transition occurs in a narrow pH range, corresponding to the optimal pH of fusion, in which the protein acquires the ability to interact with detergent micelles and lipid vesicles. This interaction leads to the insertion of the fusion peptide into the membrane, where a pore is formed. It has been suggested that the hepatitis C virus (HCV) infects host cells through a pH-dependent internalization mechanism. This HCVpp-mediated fusion was dependent on low pH, with a threshold of 6.3 and an optimum at about 5.5.[2]

When pH drops to 6 or below, rapid fusion between the membranes of viruses and the liposomes occurs. This results in the transfer of viral nucleocapsids into the liposomes. Ebola virions are taken into endothelial cells via macropinocytosis. After their formation, macropinosomes move further into the cytoplasm to acquire new markers or fuse with other vesicles of the standard endolysosomal pathway. This eventually moves the Ebola virions to more acidic compartments such as early and late endosomes that assist in the pH dependent fusion of viral and cellular membranes.[3] During this process, the cell detaches from its neighbors and loses contact with its basement membrane thanks to a mechanism of glycan mediated steric occlusion by GP.[4] The newly created particles then leave via lipid rafts, leaving a destabilized vascular system responsible for the massive blood loss characteristic of Ebola patients.[5]

Interaction of silver nanoparticles with HIV-1 29 June 2005 The regular spatial arrangement of the attached nanoparticles, the center-to-center distance between nanoparticles, and the fact that the exposed sulfur-bearing residues of the glycoprotein knobs would be attractive sites for nanoparticle interaction suggest that silver nanoparticles interact with the HIV-1 virus via preferential binding to the gp120 glycoprotein knobs. Due to this interaction, silver nanoparticles inhibit the virus from binding to host cells, as demonstrated in vitro.

Silver found to increase effectiveness of antibiotics June 20, 2013 What they found was that even small amounts of silver ran roughshod over some of the toughest bacteria around. “It did two things,” Collins said. The positively charged silver ions degraded the bacteria’s protective layer, giving the antibiotics easier access to the pathogens’ innards. It also messed with the bugs’ metabolism and their ability to manage their iron levels.

Louisiana’s attorney general is trying to stop Dallas Ebola victim Thomas Eric Duncan’s incinerated belongings from going into a Louisiana landfill. Six truckloads of material were collected from Duncan’s apartment and incinerated at a facility in Port Arthur, Texas on Friday. The material, which included linen, bedding and carpet, was supposed to be shipped to a landfill in Carlyss, Louisiana for disposal. However, Attorney General James D. “Buddy” Caldwell said he will ask for a temporary restraining order to prevent that from happening. Caldwell said in a statement provided to Mashable, “We certainly share sadness and compassion for those who have lost their lives and loved ones to this terrible virus, but the health and safety of our Louisiana citizens is our top priority.” (Wochit Screen Capture)

The second nurse to contract Ebola in the United States was receiving care at an Atlanta hospital on Thursday, a day after the news emerged that officials did not stop her flying on a commercial flight even after she reported a slight temperature. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said, the nurse, 29-year-old Amber Vinson, flew from Cleveland to Dallas on Monday, a day before she was diagnosed with Ebola.

Of the Mars Missing Atmosphere

NASA Mission Provides Its First Look at Martian Upper Atmosphere October 14, 2014 The hydrogen and oxygen coronas of Mars are the tenuous outer fringe of the planet’s upper atmosphere, where the edge of the atmosphere meets space. In this region, atoms that were once a part of carbon dioxide or water molecules near the surface can escape to space. These molecules control the climate, so following them allows us to understand the history of Mars over the last four billion years and to track the change from a warm and wet climate to the cold, dry climate we see today. MAVEN observed the edges of the Martian atmosphere using the Imaging Ultraviolet Spectrograph (IUVS), which is sensitive to the sunlight reflected by these atoms.

The Newest NASA Mars Mission Is Already Unraveling The Mystery Of Mars’ Missing Atmosphere  OCT. 15, 2014 This water has broken apart into its atomic components, hydrogen and oxygen, and once hydrogen reaches the upper atmosphere of Mars it escapes into space because it is extremely light and so is weakly bound by Mars’ gravity. It’s escape process like these that remove water from Mars, Chaffin explained, and may have “dominated the history of Martian climate change.”

The hydrogen slipping away from the planet is shown by the bright white band around the red circle, which marks the outline of Mars. The band is bright because the hydrogen atoms are reflecting the sunlight that is shining on that half of Mars during daytime.

Carbon is heavier than hydrogen and so is located closer to the surface as shown in the image below. Carbon dioxide is the most abundant molecule in the Martian atmosphere and, because it is a greenhouse gas, may have established conditions on early Mars for liquid water.

Oxygen is also a heavy element and is therefore more strongly bound by Mars’s gravity. However, chemical interactions between light particles and oxygen atoms in the atmosphere can heat oxygen atoms up to the point where they have enough energy to rise to the upper atmosphere and escape into space.

Most of the oxygen shown in this image is cold oxygen, but the fuzzy part of the image on the list portion of the planet is hot oxygen that is escaping into space. Oxygen is perhaps the most useful element to study because it is produce from the breakdown of both carbon dioxide and water.

A comet will give Mars a historically close shave next weekend, and NASA aims to be ready for the dramatic cosmic event. The space agency has already trained a number of its science assets on Comet Siding Spring , which will zoom within 87,000 miles of Mars on Oct. 19 — about one-third the distance between Earth and the moon. And NASA’s fleet of Red Planet orbiters and rovers will be watching on the big day, studying the comet and its influence on Mars’ atmosphere. (Wochit)

Of the Dwarf Galaxy vs Spiral Galaxy Collisions

How gravitational lensing acts like a magnifying glass

SS: we are looking at black holes and galaxy collisions. The Milky Way galaxy is like the collision illustrated in the second image above where dwarf galaxy is wrapping around a spiral galaxy. it seems to me in this conflict that the black hole in the center is the most important. i have already talked about how the andromedans have been disconnected from their black hole connection to their brown dwarf in the Milky Way galaxy when they were defeated last night by the secret order. the Milky Way black hole now connects with Cygnus X-1 in the Summer Triangle.

Smallest Known Galaxy with a Supermassive Black Hole MANY BLACK HOLES MAY HIDE IN DWARF REMNANTS OF STRIPPED GALAXIES Sept. 17, 2014 – A University of Utah astronomer and his colleagues discovered that an ultracompact dwarf galaxy harbors a supermassive black hole – the smallest galaxy known to contain such a massive light-sucking object. The finding suggests huge black holes may be more common than previously believed. “It is the smallest and lightest object that we know of that has a supermassive black hole,” says Anil Seth, lead author of an international study of the dwarf galaxy published in Thursday’s issue of the journal Nature. “It’s also one of the most black hole-dominated galaxies known.”

The astronomers used the Gemini North 8-meter optical-and-infrared telescope on Hawaii’s Mauna Kea and photos taken by the Hubble Space Telescope to discover that a small galaxy named M60-UCD1 has a black hole with a mass equal to 21 million suns. Their finding suggests plenty of other ultracompact dwarf galaxies likely also contain supermassive black holes – and those dwarfs may be the stripped remnants of larger galaxies that were torn apart during collisions with yet other galaxies.

Arp 116 (APG 116) is a pair of interacting galaxies composed of elliptical galaxy Messier 60 and spiral galaxy NGC 4647, located in the Virgo Constellation, lying about 60 million light years away, in the Virgo Cluster, at right ascension 12h 43m 36.1s declination +11° 34′ 02″ .[1][2][3] Interaction between the two galaxies has just begun, with initial findings of tidal interaction being found in 2012.[1] With an apparent separation between the galaxies of 2′.5, the optical discs of the two galaxies overlap.[4]

NGC 7793 is a spiral galaxy about 12.7 million light-years away in the constellation Sculptor. It was discovered in 1826 by James Dunlop.[5] Black hole P13 in outer spiral[edit] Jets from a black hole named P13 power a large nebula named S26 in the outer spiral of this galaxy. P13 is stripping material away from a nearby star about ten times faster than was previously believed to be physically possible. P13 was first thought to be about the mass of our sun, then estimates place it more towards 1/15 the mass of our sun. If correct, this observation would show flaws in theories that a black hole’s mass and rate of consumption are a fixed relationship.[8][9] Recently, the mass of P13 was determined to be less then 15 solar masses, and it’s companion star is estimated to be around 20 solar masses. The two orbit eachother in 64 days.[10]

Messier 82 (also known as NGC 3034, Cigar Galaxy or M82) is a starburst galaxy about 12 million light-years away in the constellation Ursa Major. It is about five times more luminous than the whole Milky Way and one hundred times more luminous than our galaxy’s center.[5] The starburst activity is thought to be triggered by interaction with neighboring galaxy M81, and M82 is a member of the M81 Group.

The M81 Group is a galaxy group in the constellations Ursa Major and Camelopardalis that includes the well-known galaxies Messier 81 and Messier 82, as well as several other galaxies with high apparent brightnesses.[1] The approximate center of the group is located at a distance of 3.6 Mpc, making it one of the nearest groups to the Local Group.[1] The group is estimated to have a total mass of (1.03 ± 0.17)×1012M☉.[2] The M81 Group, the Local Group, and other nearby groups all lie within the Virgo Supercluster (i.e. the Local Supercluster).[3]

This Hubble Space telescope image shows the gargantuan galaxy M60 in the center, and the ultracompact dwarf galaxy M60-UCD1 below it and to the right, and also enlarged as an inset. A new international study led by University of Utah astronomer Anil Seth and published in the journal Nature found that M60-UCD1 is the smallest known galaxy with a supermassive black hole at its center, suggesting the dwarf galaxy originally was much larger but was stripped of its outer layers by gravity from galaxy M60 over billions of years. M60’s gravity also is pulling galaxy NGC4647, upper right, and the two eventually will collide. (NASA/Space Telescope Science Institute/European Space Agency)
