I went to Gallery 33 in Amsterdam today to see Brandon Graham’s Walrus show and oh man it was great. There was a ton of cool art, drinks, strawberries and cream, not to mention a bunch of comics, shirts and buttons to buy.
And best of all, Brandon drew me a giant robot. So, so rad. God, so rad.
Today was fucking terrific, fuck yes
These distinctive nebular formations are characterised by their axially symmetric, bi-lobed appearance. Many planetary nebulae exhibit this feature, and it is possible that there is a relationship between the two types of nebula, with one preceding the other in their evolution. The exact cause of the bipolar structure is unknown, however it could be linked to bipolar outflow (a process in which a star ejects highly energetic streams of outflow along both poles).
