Okay, just a little break from working on my spring term classes to post this non-geo science news link about massive runaway stars. Because it’s pretty damn awesome.
This makes me want to say that I’m glad I live on the outskirts of the galaxy instead of in the center of it, since it seems like the chances of getting hit with something like this is lower out here. Not to mention the black holes. But then, these crazy stars happened a gazillion years ago, so it’s more that I’m glad I don’t live in the center of the galaxy a gazillion years ago. fwiw.
