things are exploding in a galaxy right next to ours. i don't really know what it has to do with us, but it's pretty interesting.
The event, detected Feb. 18, looks something like a gamma-ray burst (GRB), scientists said. But it is much closer—about 440 million light-years away—than others. And it lasted about 33 minutes. Most GRBs are billions of light-years away and last less than a second or just a few seconds.
'k, so don't blow up or anything this weekend.
ck one and i hit stars on saturday night, celebrating my triumphant return to the world of going out. antibiotics my ass, there will be beer.
