#i’ve never given it much thought before but this gifset really strikes home at how so very young steve and natasha are compared to the rest of the avengers #they’re still kids really and they’ve already gone to wars and watch regimes fall had their lives snatched away and had tried to make up or atone for it #and i think steve and natasha recognize that about each other and why they’re still such kindred spirits despite their conflicting perceptions of the world and of personhood itself (via shardsofblu)

Fake gamer cats, ugh
If you make yourself more than just a man,
if you devote yourself to an ideal…
you become something else entirely.

Galactic Center of Our Milky Way
The Hubble Space Telescope, the Spitzer Space Telescope, and the Chandra X-ray Observatory — collaborated to produce an unprecedented image of the central region of our Milky Way galaxy.
Observations using infrared light and X-ray light see through the obscuring dust and reveal the intense activity near the galactic core. The center of the galaxy is located within the bright white region in the upper portion of the image. The entire image covers about one-half a degree, about the same angular width as the full moon.
Each telescope’s contribution is presented in a different color:
- Yellow represents the near-infrared observations of Hubble. They outline the energetic regions where stars are being born as well as reveal hundreds of thousands of stars.
- Red represents the infrared observations of Spitzer. The radiation and winds from stars create glowing dust clouds that exhibit complex structures from compact, spherical globules to long, stringy filaments.
- Blue and violet represents the X-ray observations of Chandra. X-rays are emitted by gas heated to millions of degrees by stellar explosions and by outflows from the supermassive black hole in the galaxy’s center. The bright blue blob toward the bottom of the full field image is emission from a double star system containing either a neutron star or a black hole.
