"Until the middle twentieth century, it was impossible to see how mere atoms and molecules could account for the intricacy and elegance, the fitting of form to function, of a living thing."

Nikola Tesla was a genius, a science nerd, and an underdog — the perfect recipe for an Internet superhero. But who was Nikola Tesla, really? What did he actually invent? Join Jonathan and Lauren as they explore some of the popular misconceptions about Tesla’s life and work.

Heart-Shaped Bubbles
In the area of NGC1929 in the LMC is found the complex nebula seen above. Known as the N44 superbubble complex, this turbulent emission nebula is dominated by a vast bubble about 325 by 250 light-years across. The bubble’s interior is formed either by massive winds produced by a cluster of a few to many OB stars combined with the remnant shell of old supernovae. If you look closely along the right of the nebula you can discern the presence of a second bubble. As superbubbles expand and age their surface brightness diminishes. Finally it is thought that superbubbles can trigger new star formation in areas of the shells where gases condense.

The oldest rocks ever discovered in our solar system have been dated back about 4.57 billion years, meaning Earth obviously finished forming later than that. However, determining exactly when that happened can be difficult. New research presented by French geochemists from the University…
