Hubble Captures Dynamic Dying Star

This Hubble image shows a dark, gloomy scene in the constellation of Gemini (the Twins). The subject of this image confused astronomers when it was first studied — rather than being classified as a single object, it was instead recorded as two objects, owing to its symmetrical lobed structure. via NASA

Recipe: Hydrating CBD Smoothie

Staying hydrated is one of the best things you can do for your body. From brighter skin to improved brain function, even weight control, it’s obvious we need adequate fluids to maintain our health. Sometimes, you need more than just water, which is why electrolytes are so important.

Here’s a hydrating smoothie recipe I created to help your body keep doing what it needs to do. I’ve boosted it with hydrating vegetables such as cucumbers, and added electrolyte-rich fruits and coconut water to keep it cool and refreshing. The addition of CBD is like the icing on a healthy cake. 

Makes 1 smoothie

  • 1/2 cup cucumber, peeled and sliced
  • 1 banana, ripe and frozen
  • 1/2 an avocado, diced
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint
  • 1 medium lime, juiced (approximately 2 tablespoons of juice) 
  • 1 cup coconut water
  • 1 personal serving of CBD
  • Ice (optional) 

Add all the ingredients, blend and enjoy.

Nearby Spiral Galaxy NGC 4945

Large spiral galaxy NGC 4945 is seen edge-on near the center of this cosmic galaxy portrait. In fact, it's almost the size of our Milky Way Galaxy. NGC 4945's own dusty disk, young blue star clusters, and pink star forming regions standout in the sharp, colorful telescopic image. About 13 million light-years distant toward the expansive southern constellation Centaurus, NGC 4945 is only about six times farther away than Andromeda, the nearest large spiral galaxy to the Milky Way. Though this galaxy's central region is largely hidden from view for optical telescopes, X-ray and infrared observations indicate significant high energy emission and star formation in the core of NGC 4945. Its obscured but active nucleus qualifies the gorgeous island universe as a Seyfert galaxy and home to a central supermassive black hole. via NASA
