Tennessee State Representative Joe Pitts will not run for reelection

 

Written by Joe Pitts
Tennessee State Representative

Tennessee State Representative - District 67Nashville, TN – In 2006 the folks of House District 67 gave me the high honor of electing me the first time to be their State Representative. I always referred to the opportunity as a “two-year contract” between me and those that I represent. And I knew I would one day have to say good-bye to this opportunity and that day is on the horizon.

At the conclusion of the 110th Tennessee General Assembly, in 2018, I will retire from this season of service. The time just seems right. It is time for me to step aside, and allow another citizen legislator to experience the excitement of helping their constituents…some of the finest people anywhere.

NASA’s Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes observe Dying Star reborn into a Black Hole

 

Written by Elizabeth Landau
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – Astronomers have watched as a massive, dying star was likely reborn as a black hole. It took the combined power of the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT), and NASA’s Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes to go looking for remnants of the vanquished star, only to find that it disappeared out of sight.

It went out with a whimper instead of a bang.

The star, which was 25 times as massive as our sun, should have exploded in a very bright supernova. Instead, it fizzled out — and then left behind a black hole.

This illustration shows the final stages in the life of a supermassive star that fails to explode as a supernova, but instead implodes to form a black hole. (NASA/ESA/P. Jeffries (STScI))
