COME HITHER MY FRIEND!
The spiral galaxy ESO 137-001 looks like a dandelion caught in a breeze in this new composite image from the Chandra X-ray Observatory and the Hubble Space Telescope.
The galaxy is zooming toward the upper left of this image, in between other galaxies in the Norma cluster located over 200 million light-years away. The road is harsh: intergalactic gas in the Norma cluster is sparse, but so hot at 180 million degrees Fahrenheit that it glows in X-rays detected by Chandra (blue).
The spiral plows through the seething intra-cluster gas so rapidly - at nearly 4.5 million miles per hour - much of its own gas is caught and torn away. Astronomers call this “ram pressure stripping.” The galaxy’s stars remain intact due to the binding force of their gravity.

“Their tears of joy don’t stop as they suck in night air. They hug me for a half an hour until they stop shaking. Another day, another life. In the end, that’s all that counts.” —Nightwing
—Nightwing: The Great Leap
Oh. My. Goodness. Because you realize that HE WOULD let them hug him for half an hour. Because that is just how Dick Grayson does hugs.
Get out Batman. Just get out.
Dick Grayson is a beautiful human being. He lets these people cling to him for as long as they need. What a kind an loving person. Nightwing doesn’t need superpowers because he is so possessed of compassion and a genuine love for humanity. Dick isn’t beautiful just because he looks nice in his costume. He’s pretty, sure, that’s nice. He’s beautiful for his courage, his capacity for forgiveness and acceptance. He’s my hero.
Filed under: Reasons why Dick Grayson is the most awesome person in the history of the planet and you should all adore him like I do.
Let’s all just take a moment and appreciate the fact that this man was raised. By. Batman. BY BATMAN. By Bruce Wayne, who although a wonderful hero in many ways, is kind of terrible when it comes to things like friendliness and emotional expressiveness.
But Dick is not like that at ALL. Dick LOVES people. Dick goes out and he saves people, and he uses the skills that Bruce taught him, and in some ways it looks like he’s just doing the same thing that Bruce does, but THIS is why I will never understand the people who say that Dick is just “Batman Lite”. Because if that’s what you think, then you’re not getting it. You’re not getting it at ALL. Nightwing may be a non-powered normal who saves the day mainly through his intelligence and training, like Batman, but those things aren’t what define the type of hero that he is. What defines the type of hero that he is is his warmth. His love of humanity. His deep empathy for other people.
THAT is why I’m such a huge fan of Dick’s. It’s not because I think he’s super cute. It’s not because he can do awesome acrobatics. It’s because he has one of the biggest hearts in the DCU. Because he is the kind of hero who would let two complete strangers hug him for half an hour after he rescues them. Just because they need it, and he’s there to protect them, not just physically but also emotionally. Because “in the end, that’s all that counts”.
If that’s not heroism, I don’t know what is.
#the greatest #i’ve got red in my ledger. i’d like to wipe it clean. #she manipulates people’s gendered expectations of her to extract information #she conducts interrogations by letting people think they’ve bested her #by letting men think they’ve bested her #because she’s small and fragile and female and she is emotional and easy to snap in half #and then she tears them apart #and it’s the greatest thing and you’re the greatest thing and i love you #get your own movie
Must reblog Black Widow. Always.
