Well, looks like we had 62 active members this week, turning in almost 173 Thousand Credits.. not bad.. I think we can do better, but its still a pretty good total.
Sandra DeLoach was our only gold star this week as she finally managed to get over 25 thousand Credits into the Big Seti Bank. You could hear the celebration all the way over here.. it musta been quite a party!!!
olive was our top cruncher with 24,997 Credits, Dave Rave nailed second with 21,303 Credits, and jester pulled in for a 3rd place finish with 10,397 Credits.. Very nicely done.. impressive...
QUAD XEON was our top mover this week, having used 3,042 Credits to earn 13 places on the team charts, much to the consternation of other members.. but.. pshaw!!! Thats what they get for screwing around ;)
Just 2 movers and shakers this week. We start with theshewolf, who finally got sick and tired of The Chow Hounds, and took a quick hop up the charts to become a certified Big Dog.
Next, we had afliction, The Cat Toys newest members. shoot, I could hear the howling all the way over here as The Tail Chasers cried about his leaving them.. but.. the tyme had come..
Anyways, thats my report for the week. I'm gunna go back and hibernate for the weekend, and I'll see you all monday night (probably tuesday morning, but shhhh) :)
What its all about:
to seventeenth century astronomers,
known as a wonderful star - a star whose brightness could change
dramatically in the course of about 11 months.
Modern astronomers now recognize an entire class of long period
mira-type variables as cool,
pulsating, red giant stars, 700 or so times the diameter of the Sun.
Only 420 light-years away,
giant Mira (Mira A, right) itself
co-orbits with a companion star, a small white dwarf (Mira B).
Mira B is surrounded by a disk of material drawn from the pulsating
giant and in such a double star system, the white dwarf star's
hot accretion disk
is expected to produce
but this sharp,
false-color image from the Chandra Observatory also
captures the cool giant star strongly
x-ray energies, clearly
separated from the x-ray emission of its companion's accretion disk.
Placing your cursor over the Chandra x-ray image of Mira will reveal
an artist's vision of this still wonderful
interacting binary star system.
