I checked the news and didn't see this in there, so hopefully I'm not treading on Jim's toes :P. Absolutely fascinating!
Is my Razer Diamondback retro yet?
s

Graciously recommended from KB, is some muffricken Christian death metal. It is a must hear, it pushes envelopes, explores new ground. Words can't describe just now incredibly awesome this is. Cue the alter smashing, bench flipping, and bible reading while thrashing away at guitars and drums.

I witnessed regional Special Olympics and Challenge Day; there's far more intellect there than there is in internet arguments.

Don't worry, you're not. I've got plenty of other sources I can write up, so one won't be an issue.
Also:
Spitzer Space Telescope: NASA Observatories Find Most Distant Galaxy Candidate
Hubble Space Telescope (NASA site): NASA Great Observatories Find Candidate for Most Distant Galaxy Yet Known
Hubble Space Telescope (ESA site): Hubble helps find candidate for most distant object in the Universe yet observed
There are often differences between the different sources, albeit minor differences.

PS. Here's another NASA story that I don't think I'll write up just because I've got so much other news:

The space is truly fasinating

How to avoid thinking about outer space life with such a vast and deep space? I'm sure there is some form of life out there. Not all ways of life needs to be between -20 and 50ºC .... maybe another way of life support 100ºC or even -100 who knows? Maybe they don't need water... it is impossible for scientist to assure because SIMPLY they doesn't know.

Nobody in the world can't say there is a talking metal in some galaxy of the space. Perhaps something we can't imagine. Just realize we are the 0,0000000001% of the space lol.. Human thinks it know it all.

Think about if we could find a way to live in extreme temperatures like -100C...I could even get a 5GHz OC on my FX-6100 on air Posted Image

On a more serious note, I do agree with you that space is fascinating. I often go on holiday to this place in the countryside and you look up you can see all the stars* etc. You can also see into our galaxy and all the stars that will one day be sucked into the black hole at the center of it all. But in many ways, it's awe inspiring to see how little we are with all the stars with their own solar systems and planets. Also, how small yet complex our planet is, with all the satellites and shooting stars. And to think that each and every planet orbiting each and every star also has its own atmosphere and the same complexity as ours is just fascinating.

*I don't actually claim to be able to see all the stars, especially considering all stars and galaxies are moving away from the Big Bang and the universe is expanding faster than the speed of light, therefore any stars not moving in the same direction we are will be impossible to see with current technology

But seriously. Wouldn't be crazy to find a Talking Metal/Gas? An organism or way of life just like metal. Unbreakeble or a nano element or something really crazy that scientist think they know it all. Well they DON'T!!!! God only knows what may be in another part in the vast universe.
