Ever wanted to learn some in-depth astronomy? Are textbooks worded boringly? Then good news! Stella the Star is not only hecka cute, but she’s also gonna teach you the life cycle of a Sun-like star AND you can learn all the science mumbo-jumbo words too!
This was my final project for the Astronomy class at my University a few years back, and honestly I’ve been meaning to upload it for a while now. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did creating it! c:
New video posted about time travel! In this video I discuss the messiness involved in time traveling. Things can get real crazy when you bend the fourth dimension.

Behold the first geological map of Ganymede, Jupiter’s largest moon
by Lauren Davis
Four hundred years ago, Galileo Galilei observed Ganymede in orbit around Jupiter. This week, a team of planetary scientists unveiled the first global geological map of our solar system’s largest moon.
Using images obtained by NASA’s Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft and the Galileo orbiter, a team led by Geoffrey Collins of Wheaton College pieced together a mosaic image of the planet, giving us our first complete image of the geological features of the satellite. Above, you can see the moon centered at 200 west longitude. The darker areas represent the very old and heavily cratered region of Ganymede, while the lighter areas are somewhat younger regions marked with grooves and ridges…
