Dodging the Roadkill: Why Bikers Mean So Much To Each Other

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – When I decided to buy a motorcycle, I was just as interested in the “community” as I was the machine.  I had always heard what a tight knit brotherhood there was, but I had no idea it was this special. 

The people I’ve met and the places I’ve seen has been incredible.  Makes me sad that I took so long to discover it, but there’s no point in looking back, I’m not headed in that direction. 

Along the way, my motorcycle has provided me with opportunities to travel.  To see the world from a different perspective.  To actually ENJOY the open road and the experience it provides.

NASA’s SOFIA telescope observes Supernova Explosion

 

NASA Headquarters

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – Dust particles form as dying red giant stars throw off material and become part of interstellar clouds of various sizes, densities and temperatures. This cosmic dust is then destroyed by supernova blast waves, which propagate through space at more than 6,000 miles per second (10,000 km/sec)!

Supernova explosions are among the most powerful events in the universe, with a peak brightness equivalent to the light from billions of individual stars. The explosion also produces a blast wave that destroys almost everything in its path, including dust in the surrounding interstellar medium, the space between the stars.

Artist's concept illustrating Supernova 1987A as the powerful blast wave passes through its outer ring and destroys most of its dust, before the dust re-forms or grows rapidly. SOFIA observations reveal that dust — a building block of stars and planets — can re-form or grow immediately after the catastrophic damage caused by the supernova's blast wave.
