Death Star Galaxy

It is like a black hole bully, punching the nose of a passing galaxy
- Neil Tyson, Hayden Planetarium

A galaxy dubbed the ‘Death Star Galaxy’, located in system 3C321 [roughly 1.4 billion light-years from Earth], is releasing a ‘jet’ from the vicinity of the massive black hole at it’s center - which is smashing into a nearby smaller galaxy [galaxies are apparently ninjas too].

"This jet could be causing all sorts of problems for the smaller galaxy it is pummeling."

The combined effects of this radiation and particles travelling at almost the speed of light could have disastrous consequences for the atmospheres of any Earth-like planets lying in the path of the jet.

For example, protective layers of ozone in the planet’s upper atmosphere could be destroyed, which could result in the mass extinction of any life that had evolved on the planet.

Neil Tyson, director of the Hayden Planetarium in New York commented: "Black holes are famous for wreaking havoc on their environment. This particular black hole is disrupting its local region by dining on matter that wanders too close - which is the source of the energy for this jet.

My Ninja Please! 12/15: Misestimation of denominator/numerator chaos

canberaaa.png

Why do people always fail to be selfish like a salmon? Is it because swimming along with the rest of the fish is just too damn easy? I mean it would be a lot easier to not have this conversation and want to talk about some comfy furniture, but on the reals is there any way that signals eventually will not collapse? All this talk about destroying the ego and cutting down on the persona is found ironic in a neo/poser/hippie tolerant type of way. Because if a persona is not shown then you can not cut down on the ego to fortune your own. I understood that there is clause to my testament of time and that further down the road it will inevitably be shaked into submission, but why is there so much question to as why the bald headed black woman I met last night cannot be fierce with her line by line academic opera and I cannot interject with chaos? In the second round we will see how it was….((as the tambourines play))……

Ninja VS Black Hole

[Image: Can a Ninja Escape from a Black Hole? click to see full size]

It’s quite the diagram - and should be viewed by all ninjas, just to be safe. You never know when you may have to battle/escape from a tear in the fabric of space and time [hey, these guys might screw up and create one in your back yard - then you’ll be thanking MNP].

My Ninja, Please! 11/19/07: Ninjasaurus

There’s not much to say about this except, M.N.P.

A 110 million-year-old dinosaur that had a mouth that worked like a vacuum cleaner, hundreds of tiny teeth and nearly translucent skull bones was unveiled Thursday, 15 Nov., at the National Geographic Society.
Found in the Sahara by Professor Paul Sereno, University of Chicago palaeontologist and National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence, the dinosaur is a plant eater known as Nigersaurus taqueti. Originally named by Sereno and his team in 1999 with only a few of its distinctive bones in hand, Nigersaurus has emerged as an anatomically bizarre dinosaur.

Wow… a bit racialist.

And now, a message from R0b0t Ninja

Check out R0b0t Ninja’s blog at robotninja.mnp:
"Most esteemed space-ninjas and robots

As you may know, one of the many advantages of being a robotic ninja, is that travelling through deep space poses no real threat to our livelihood. While your flesh-and-blood ninja has to rely on various ninja-magics and/or ninja-spacecraft, we robotninjas can survive even the raw vacuum of outer space, giving us the freedoms to explore vast reaches of the solar system and beyond. At a colleague’s post at NASA, please find several examples of the field recordings I made while in orbit around Saturn. On a routine expedition to Jupiter, investigating an orbiting artifact placed there millions of years ago by advanced, god-like superbeings (turns out it was full of stars), I happened to pick up some interesting sounds on my various antennae while passing by Saturn. Intrigued, I beamed the samples back to earth, and my good friends at the National Astronomical Super Atomics have posted them for the world to experience. End ninja-transmission—-dictated but not read."
