Oops, make that doughnuts or donuts. Dougnuts are something else that Sulu knows about.

“...this striking pattern is formed by material being ejected from a dying star. “

Regardless, it is striking similar to the Norway spiral.

Amazing. Looks like what you might imagine a worm hole to look like (if they exist).

I know what you mean, after all, the Muslim in chief has N.A.S.A. ( Now Allah Should Arrive ) reaching out to the Mooslims..

No, but astronomers know exactly what it is.

It's two black holes in a death spiral. When they collide there'll only be one of them. I wish we could get a picture of that ...

Wasn’t a similar story posted in FR’s a week or so ago ? The gist of the description explaining the event read was, if I recall correctly, a bio orbiting star system with one solar mass being desintegrated by a larger one’s gravatational field which is creating a new solar system. There was nothing about a failed launch result. This photo seems to look the same as the previous post in fact clearer.
