Fart Proudly - A Letter To A Royal Academy

By US Ambassador To France Benjamin Franklin

"I have perused your late mathematical Prize Question, proposed in lieu of one in Natural Philosophy, for the ensuing year... Permit me then humbly to propose one of that sort for your consideration, and through you, if you approve it, for the serious Enquiry of learned Physicians, Chemists, &c. of this enlightened Age. It is universally well known, that in digesting our common food, there is created or produced in the bowels of human creatures, a great quantity of wind. That the permitting this air to escape and mix with the atmosphere, is usually offensive to the company, from the fetid smell that accompanies it. That all well-bread people therefore, to avoid giving such offense, forcibly restrain the efforts of nature to discharge that wind..."

VISTA Gigapixel Mosaic of Central Milky Way

European Southern Observatory

click for full size

"This striking view of the central parts of the Milky Way was obtained with the VISTA survey telescope at ESO's Paranal Observatory in Chile. This huge picture is 108,500 by 81,500 pixels and contains nearly nine billion pixels. It was created by combining thousands of individual images from VISTA, taken through three different infrared filters, into a single monumental mosaic. These data form part of the VVV public survey and have been used to study a much larger number of individual stars in the central parts of the Milky Way than ever before. Because VISTA has a camera sensitive to infrared light, it can see through much of the dust blocking the view for optical telescopes, although many more opaque dust filaments still show up well in this picture.
