84 Million Stars: Peering into the Galactic Heart: Big Pic

Astronomers have cataloged 84 million stars at the heart of the Milky Way galaxy using an enormous cosmic photo snapped by a telescope in Chile, a view that is billed as the largest survey ever of the stars in our galaxy’s core.

The staggering 9-gigapixel picture was created with data gathered by the Visible and Infrared Survey Telescope for Astronomy (VISTA), an instrument at the European Southern Observatory’s Paranal Observatory in northern Chile. The zoomable image is so large that it would measure 30 feet long by 23 feet tall (9 by 7 meters) if printed with the resolution of a typical book, researchers said.

The huge new picture probes the Milky Way’s central bulge, a concentration of ancient stars found near the core of most spiral galaxies. Getting good looks at this region is not an easy task.

“Observations of the bulge of the Milky Way are very hard because it is obscured by dust,” said co-author Dante Minniti, also of Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile. “To peer into the heart of the galaxy, we need to observe in infrared light, which is less affected by the dust.”

book art:
i have content written for:
the rest of "here i am," he replied about abraham and isaac
housemates
tao vs. bible
kink

i also started writing some content for one about compulsive skin picking (oddly, a topic i’ve grazed before in zine making).

i don’t think i’ll be able to make kink any time soon, for the same reason i can’t possible even start editing content for four months of the morning chorus.
someday.
someday people all over the world will be buying little hardback books titled something like very real, very not real: a collection of explanations, including three sections: 1. “four months of the morning chorus,” 2. “8 people in one room,” and 3. “kink.”
(i will likely leave in my will that translations may not ever be published without facing content.)
i am going to make one outlining the rules of attack, so maybe that’ll be some kind of appendix to very real, very not real

now that i’m thinking about it, i should probably make one telling the stories of all my little body mods.

non-silver:
as the book project develops, i will almost definitely get the chemicals to do cyanotypes and gum prints. 

a different project:
seth and i bought screens and squeegees, i bought soft scrub, and he bought screen clamps.
look at us, we are FOR SERIOUS.
i still have to acquire: a “blue tape” substitute, screen filler, dye, and cotton. 

painting:
i’ve been planning to do an ace of diamond series for, i dunno, 2 months?  it’ll be an encaustic diptych.  one side will be 13 aces of diamonds, then the other side will be the 12 other cards in the suit with a missing spot for the ace.  i’m not 100% sure how the composition will go, but the cards are going to be actual size, and each one on a separate piece of fabric.
