    'Space' used to fascinate me but the more I learn about space the more awesome it becomes and just as frightening. What sort of distance is 7.5 BILLION LIGHT years ?!

    Considering that the Sun is 8 light minutes from the Earth and the Moon is less than 2 light seconds away..... how can we possible comprehend a distance of 7.5 BILLION LIGHT years !

    For all it's worth, have ( appropriately) a S-T-A-R, LOL

    Okay, here is what I have gathered, 1.) As the news suggest Egyptians have been rallying. From my recollection that seems to be the only thing they have done. They gather in a mass and chant. 2.) Over the internet. On facebook. 3.) Now don't quote me. The US has made their position clear from my understanding, Mubarak (sp) leave office. He is from how it appears reluctant to do so. Some of our US corporations have from one resource aided their president. Their internet which was and is used to gather and organize them was shut down. 4.) I think he said he'd leave the office but not until his term was complete which is from resource 9 months away. 5.) From what I have read the government is in turmoil just as the people. Everyone is oppressed by the president whom is by all means a tyrant. The Egyptian government resembles that of a kingdom. The president has control of virtually everything. He is incorporated in everything. The man has been in office 30 yrs and another resource since 81' (20yrs), either way its been too long. 5 terms. You tell me what you think?

    Awesome. And it only lasted <1 hour. So the star is non-existent now: actually it was non-existent < 1 hr after it exploded. It's the radiation that has travelled 7.5 bil light years!

    heck the sun comes up every day, and that has been happening longer than this star exploding, it is more current, and everybody takes it for granted.
