The Hubble Space Telescope captured this image of stars in the remnants of the gas cloud that birthed them.  3 million years ago the density of the internal knots in the gas cloud, collapsed and the stars were born.  While some of the stars were so massive they’ve already exploded in a supernova, the younger stars are so energized they create one of the largest clouds of hydrogen gas known.  This cluster is located in the galaxy M33.

Book Review: ‘A Coming Of Age’ by Timothy Zahn

Timothy Zahn has written a lot of books, and most of them are not Star Wars. A Coming Of Age is a very different sort of story. It’s primarily a story about a kid who is coming of age, yet it’s set in a very strange, science fiction setting. On another world, in a society very unlike any we are familiar with, readers are introduced to children who have super powers. In this strange world, the adults live in fear of the children and take advantage of them. It’s an interesting read and you can check out our full review here.

A Coming Of Age is available as an eBook, and as of today, is available as print on demand.
