New Horizons Zooms Past Neptune on 25th Anniversary of Voyager 2
25 years ago today Voyager 2 made the only close approach to Neptune, coming within 3,000 miles of the blue gas giant. At the time of the flyby, the spacecraft captured this incredible image of the planet’s southern hemisphere. Two dark spots are visible: an Earth-sized Great Dark Spot located on the far left, and Dark Spot 2 located near bottom. A bright cloud dubbed “Scooter” accompanies the Great Dark Spot. Recent computer simulations indicate that scooters are methane clouds that might commonly be found near dark spots.
In what one NASA official dubbed as a “cosmic coincidence”, the New Horizons spacecraft passed through Neptune’s orbit today on its way to its intended destination of Pluto. Launched in 2006, New Horizons is the fastest spacecraft ever launched and will be the first probe to reach Pluto. Little is known about the dwarf planet. It’s so dim and far away that the best photos by NASA’s powerful Hubble Space Telescope show Pluto as a blur of pixels. It is scheduled to arrive at Pluto on July 14, 2015 and many incredible discoveries await. READ MORE

Congratulations, gamer girls—you’re officially at the top of the food chain when it comes to games. A new study released by the Entertainment Software Association has revealed that adult women now occupy the largest demographic in the gaming industry. Women over 18 made up a whopping 36 percent of the gaming population, followed by adult men at 35 percent. 

I cannot wait for men to cry about this

number one pet peeve of all academia related to literature:

  • when men are characters but women are symbols

see also: when men are well formed characters and women are plot devices

do snape apologists think snape used sectumsempra for hedge-trimming or hair-cutting or what

actually I have heard 100% srs Snapewives or whatever saying he probably invented it to cut potions ingredients. never mind the fact that potions ingredients need to be cut precisely in many recipes and sectumsempra just kind of slices at whatever it hits, and Snape would never just hack away at his potions ingredients.

also the fact that it says FOR ENEMIES. what are your enemies, billywig stings??? come on now. COME ON NOW.
