GARCHING, Germany – Here’s some interstellar insanity to brighten up your starry, starry night. NASA says it has a photo of a smiley face on Mars that was taken back in 2008.
Now, they say they found its twin, a second smiley face in two galaxies far, far way taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. The two galaxies form the eyes, according to the folks at NASA and the European Space Agency. The smile is the result of “strong gravitational lensing” caused by the distortion of space and time.
And the outline is formed the “Einstein Ring” named after the guy who came up with the theory of general relativity.
And now, from a galaxy not so far, far way we learn that Neil, The Moonwalker, Armstrong had a few things hidden in his closet.
Armstrong’s widow found a white bag when she was cleaning out his closet after he died in 2012. Inside was the camera used to film Armstrong’s one small step for man and one giant leap for mankind. The bag contained other items now on display at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.
You might say this one small theft for man was one giant keep for mankind.
