It seems a starry gap or hole is interrupting stellar stroll in upper central part of scene on Hubble’s vast depicted screen. Astronomers are mystified, hypothesizing as to why’d a chasm such as this appear; the explanation’s still unclear. If winds from astral bodies huge had blasted out that subterfuge, the measures of velocities would tend their models to appease and not show inconsistencies for gusts colossal in degrees. So maybe supernova burst in chain reaction from the first could be a cause for hollowed lair, like cave terrestrial from where primeval Man went scattering, engaged in bouts of battering evolving to earth-shattering, to speak in tongues of chattering and seek within the nattering a smattering of mattering… But I prefer the starry heights and musings on those stellar sights to current worldly pundits’ talk at which my poet senses balk. Down here it might be dubbed disease, that supperbubble’s cosmic wheeze. One dare not cough or sniff or sneeze in such perplexing times as these. ~ Harley White * * * * * * * * A source of inspiration was the following… Image and info ~ This bizarre ‘superbubble’ spotted by the Hubble Space Telescope has scientists scratching their heads…
