NGC 2359 (also known as Thor’s Helmet) is an emission nebula in the constellation Canis Major. The nebula is approximately 15,000 light-years away and 30 light years in size. The central star is the Wolf-Rayet star HD 56925, an extremely hot giant thought to be in a brief, pre-supernova stage of evolution. Interactions with a nearby large molecular cloud are thought to have contributed to the more complex shape and curved bow-shock structure of Thor’s Helmet. [x]
Nuke Map is not fun to play with
The good news is that if a nuclear bomb strikes downtown Indianapolis, I will only get third degree burns all over my body instead of dying straight away.
When I lived in Washington DC, one of the things that comforted me was that I only lived 1.5 miles from the Pentagon, a primary target, and would therefore be completely vaporized in less than half a second in the event of an average-sized nuclear detonation.
The USSR bombs though, holy shit
Reblogging cuz I’m in DC.
Well it could be for writing research?
