5 Lost Documents That Shatter Your Image of Famous People

Started by Steph S.. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Jan 5. 1 Reply

When we think of famous figures, we have a tendency to boil them down to their most defining traits. In our heads, Teddy Roosevelt becomes badass distilled, and Albert Einstein is a brain with a severe comb allergy. This is all by design -- famous…Continue

That ice cavern is cool Tony.  If I had the opportunity to visit it, I'd jump at the chance.

When I was about 13 years old, dad took the family spelunking in a cave in the lava fields near the large sand dunes near St. Anthony Idaho.  It was great fun.  He had to let us down a waterfall made of ice with a rope, and we had to crawl through a narrow opening in the lava tube that was covered with ice.  It was beautiful.

The Flame Nebula.

About this Image
This image, the first to be released publicly from VISTA, the world’s largest survey telescope, shows the spectacular star-forming region known as the Flame Nebula, or NGC 2024, in the constellation of Orion (the Hunter) and its surroundings. In views of this evocative object in visible light the core of the nebula is completely hidden behind obscuring dust, but in this VISTA view, taken in infrared light, the cluster of very young stars at the object’s heart is revealed. The wide-field VISTA view also includes the glow of the reflection nebula NGC 2023, just below centre, and the ghostly outline of the Horsehead Nebula (Barnard 33) towards the lower right. The bright bluish star towards the right is one of the three bright stars forming the Belt of Orion.
