Never-Before-Seen Stage of Planet Birth Revealed
Astronomers studying a newborn star have caught a detailed glimpse of planets forming around it, revealing a never-before seen stage of planetary evolution.
Large gas giant planets appear to be clearing a gap in the disk of material surrounding the star, and using gravity to channel material across the gap to the interior, helping the star to grow. Theoretical simulations have predicted such bridges between outer and inner portions of disks surrounding stars, but none have been directly observed until now.

Want to piss off Dr. Mercury? Kill someone she wasn’t done with yet.
Truthfully, not much gets to her. Sure, Robots with literal hearts of gold are obnoxious, and she’s annoyed by the happiness of dolphins, but actual anger? Nah. Not really her style.
But kill someone she was playing with? Take someone from her before she’s finished with them? Steal her kill? Heaven help you.
Okay, I honestly doubt heaven will help. But maybe you could find shelter in hell.

The physicists, they look for ‘dark matter’, but I’ve found it. It’s_Her_, it’s the power of a singularity enclosed in a being. Everything you love and hate in one place, and all of the joy and despair you’ve ever felt manifest.
That was a first impression, mind. I was dying, but I didn’t care, so I was honest, really honest. I told Her how I thought I loved Her. How I felt the drive to see her, to die at Her feet in service to her.

Dr. Mercury by Rae Winters
There is a whole series of these photos which I’ve failed to get up. I’m hoping to write some fiction to pair them with.
One of the things that amuses me about this series is that I was two months pregnant when it was taken.
Villainares describe the subculture obsessed with cataloging and discussing the exploits of super-villains. This group will write detailed profiles of super-villains, labeling them under categories such as: Mad Science, Supernatural, Mutant and Alien and endlessly arguing the factual controversies related to these categories.
Villainares clip newspaper articles, fill message boards and attend conventions to share information and listen to experts talk about recent news in super-villainy. Though sometimes considered to be freaks, the obsessive documenting by Villainares has often been of help to super-heroes seeking up-to-date information before they face a super-villain threat.
