Matt Wang made this incredible graphic that compares the size of the comet to downtown Los Angeles~

This is a visual representation of the Comet compared to Los Angeles, that the European Space Agency landed the probe "Rosetta" on. Rosetta was launched in 2004 and took 10 years to reach it's destination.

Comet may only be miles wide, but that in no way means it's small. A graphic created by Matt Wang portrays the comet sitting behind Los Angeles, emphasizing the dimensions that illustrate the 4 billion-year-old …

Even a single comet is pretty darn big -- comet 67

NASA just saw something come out of a black hole for the first time ever | Blastr
What others are saying

NASA's NuSTAR telescope has detected unusual activity in the supermassive black hole Markarian Images clearly show a strange light emitting from the black hole.

This is the first time we have been able to link the launching of the corona to a flare,” said Dan Wilkins of Saint Mary’s University. “This will help us understand how super-massive black holes power some of the brightest objects in the universe

Love this interpretation of a black hole from Interstellar. They used mathematics and physics to depict an image of what a real event horizon would look like. The immense gravity is warping light of the accretion disc, causing this awesome effect.

In it was gravitational waves. In it was colliding neutron stars. We already know what's coming in

Fishing in Hawk’s Lake near Clarkson, Minnesota in 1971, Jim Hughes, 16, landed what he thought was a ‘really big, ugly fish.’ He dropped it after unhooking it when it said, ‘Hurts! Hurts!’ in a clear, deep voice. It then slid back into the lake. Pic taken by his brother, Bill Hughes, 19, who said he heard it too. Both claimed it had ‘man-like hands with fingers—and blue eyes.’ It scared the 'holy crap’ out of them.

The Height of Stupidity

Wow, From previous pics of this w/ just the graffiti I assumed they hung from the bridge to paint. Didn't realize the ledge of the road/bridge was so wide. That's not risky or anything.

Someone asked how people do graffiti on bridges. Lmfao dam Pablo,Juan and flipe!

Located in Veracruz, the Metlac bridge rises 400 feet from the ground—making it Mexico's tallest bridge—and spans 300 feet. Risk taking local graffiti artists have thrown caution to the wind and taken to traversing the bridge's edges to get up

Epic Floor Design, although I'm not sure what the idea is. if laid with clear or glass tiles to see the design would be different, but to put black tiles over doesn't make any sense. I wonder if you get a magnifying glass to view the floor.

Een gigantische bal die is ontdekt in Bosnië is momenteel hét onderwerp van gesprek onder archeologen. Het is mogelijk de oudste, zwaarste steen die werd gevormd door menselijke handen. Althans, als we de Bosnische archeoloog Semir Osmanagic mogen geloven. De beste man claimt dat de perfect ronde bol, met een diameter van drie meter, 1500 jaar oud is en werd achtergelaten door een oude beschaving die zijn tijd ver vooruit was.
