“I believe the simplest explanation is, there is no God. No one created the universe and no one directs our fate. This leads me to a profound realization that there probably is no heaven and no afterlife either. We have this one life to appreciate the grand design of the universe and for that, I am extremely grateful.” - Stephen Hawking

Are you ready for the finale?! 
Geminid Meteor Shower is on the way this weekends. Fireballs are starting to show every night! Look for meteors starting 10:00 pm local time.

In the past few decades, new instruments that capture and display galactic images with unprecedented detail, combined with new modeling approaches, have made it possible to see and understand the Milky Way Galaxy as never before. Take a long look at our galactic home in the new Space Show Dark Universe.

Making a Black Hole
This illustration depicts the creation and almost instant evaporation of a tiny black hole in one of the instruments of the Large Hadron Collider, the world’s most powerful particle accelerator. Some theories say the collider should be able to produce such tiny black holes, which would have been created en masse in the Big Bang. But such black holes would last only a tiny fraction of a second, leaving Earth unscathed. [Joao Pequenao/ATLAS/CERN]
