REALLY PEOPLE? I am dumbfounded, 3 pages of responses too and all the stars and flags for what?

I think this ought to be moved to HOAXES IMMEDIATELY! Misleading Title, and it's nonsense. Read the story and tell me what this actually says, shall I sum it up for you? NO REALLY LET ME!

NASA today saw nothing, but in that nothing we think is something HUGE, and it's only a few million years old (really it's your damn fantasy make it trillions of years old) and if this nothing COULD be seen with the naked eye well then it COULD look like what this ARTIST DREW....

REALLY???????

I am so disappointed in this one. I think I will get out my Adobe Photoshop make some shapes and tell everyone LOOK WHAT I DISCOVERED IN SPACE! Well it's not really there, but if you could see it it might look like this! NOW PAY ME!

Star and flag purely because it will annoy the poster above.

Not sure what your issue is but yeah... Fight the power.

Very nice info OP.

I like peoples reaction..."It's beautiful"

How can something you can't see be beautiful?

Why should we pay you for a drawing when we are already paying taxes and can view these images based on professional scientific data and NASA research? Do you have your own space telescope and satellite to capture images?

Anyway, these images do look beautiful but also deadly. Gamma ray bursts are believed to be some of the strongest and deadliest forces that we might ever possibly encounter. If a gamma burst ever hit Earth we would be toast. Gone .....POOF.......



en.wikipedia.org...

(a typical burst releases as much energy in a few seconds as the Sun will in its entire 10-billion-year lifetime)




www.daviddarling.info...

An intense, short burst of gamma rays and X-rays from a cosmic source known as a gamma-ray burster. Gamma-ray bursts are the most violent and powerful event in the universe and may last from about one hundredth of a second to about ten seconds. GRBs are typically registered once or twice a day from random directions in space by orbiting spacecraft.

thats not the milkyway that was me just sitting on the photcopy machine useing the xray picture mode. and nop no cancer yaaa!

joking
i wonder what that realy is just dont look right. hope they figure it out.

been covered before and yeah i agree nasa wasnt smart to pick the work structure, instead of somthing more apt like anomoly.

The same things are observed froom black holes too, they think it just a big old jet of radiation being squeezed out from the super dense center.

Im thinking this looks like some kind of massive double dyson sphere, anybody else? Wonder whats in the middle of the 2 spheres?

Thats a beautiful "rendition".

There was some major scientist on Coast to Coast tonight (sry i forget his name but he's been summoned to speak on behalf of the space community in Washington ) anyway, he was talking about the decline of the space program and how we aren't creating paths we can go down. We aren't going back to the moon, we aren't heading for Mars..th only way American astronauts are getting into space is "hitching" a ride with the Russians! It's pretty sad in my opinion..the space program gives us so much hope. It shouldn't be minimized..he proposed raising the tax x2 for NASA funding..now that's something i wouldn't mind paying for in taxes.

That is if Nasa isn't just a smoke and mirrors show while secret military sects have far superior technology.

In the middle is a Supermassive Black Hole. proposed to be at the center of many galaxys.

Like the hole in a toilet.

The question is, is there some type of network of blackholes? is that even an appropriate analogy?

Imagine all black holes at the center of every galaxy leading to the same place, theoretically if you leap through a black hole, crossing the Event Horizon, without the gravity destroying you, you will watch an unwinding of the universe, you'll be moving IN time. and eventually when everything flys by and pops out, you will enter another universe. That's what theoretically would happen, according to physicists.

And why is it we can't get high resolution photos of our planets and Moon again?

Why is everyone going on about how beautiful the image is
? The pic is an artist's impression of what it may look like 'if gamma rays were visable to the human eye'.... These things are likely remnants of the last time our galactic core was active, which is interesting. But i fear most of you never read the text

Just like some kind of superluminal highway, i wonder if it can be navigated? Its humbling to think how small we really are and how vast the cosmos truely is.

Invisible to the naked eye doesn't mean it's invisible to an infrared satellite camera.

But you may be right.
I didn't see the small print saying 'animation'


The whole 'light years' just boggles my mind. We in essence, are time travelers. We're seeing something that already happened. Too much for my mind to comprehend.
Thanks for the correction and clarity

Yeah it IS getting old... People posting things word for word from the source! Appalling! Why can't everybody just make $# up all the time? Instead of "structures" the op should have used the term "bleeebloooblaaas"... Then it would have been much easier to understand. Especially for the people who don't have a firm grasp of what the word structure means in cosmic terms and actually think there could be a 25,000 lightyear long skyscraper, a veritable Tower of Babel, built on a planet near the center of the galaxy... Yeah he definitely should've changed that because I'm sure that's exactly what 99% of the people thought when they read the thread title! Yes, a skyscraper as tall as the radius of our galaxy is long. That's it! And the other 1% thought he meant a space station.

Hey bud, you gonna bogart that joint all night?

Yeah why are you people talking about how beautiful it would be if we could see it? We can't see it! Therefore it doesn't exist so stop talking about it! It isn't even real! It's not beautiful, its UGLY!!!! Now just let me sit back and chuckle to myself while I think about how smart I am compared to you all silly "beauty lovers"...

Interesting. So what accounts for the fact that the milky way appears slanted in the sky? Just curious because that was one of the things that made the alien galaxy theory make sense to me. Are all the planetary systems just all willy nilly with their angles? Help me understand. Please, with a cherry on top?

Whoever gave you a star is an idiot. There IS science behind this. PROOF of this. They don't just release some images and say its real. They KNOW its real.

"While not immediately visible to NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, these unexpected features were brought into sharp relief by a group of scientists who processed data from Fermi's all-sky map."

Also, what is your whole point? Stop crying.

Oh yea, this thread should be in Space Exploration or Science & Technology.

my question to the bubble heads at nasa Is this naturally occuring or is it alien tech gone wrong?
oh wait they don't know how convenient................
bunch of lieing tools I hope with the job cuts at nasa that some ex employee spills the beans about what is really going on
