Inquiries, Requests, and a Place to Spill Your GutsSubmissions I am Ashley. This is my personal blog. If you want just marine biology, go here. I love the world; I really don't like people. I balance all this animosity towards the human race with being an almost always kind and gentle being to all creatures. I'm highly introverted and nature is my primary escape from humanity. Creepy-crawly-slimy things are my favorites. Dinosaurs are fantastic. Future marine biologist; presently an amateur entomologist, ichthyologist, artist, biologist, and writer. Literature, video game, and music connoisseur. I'm so full of passion for the world that it hurts. I think a lot, I laugh a lot, I love a lot. Almost none of the photos are mine and only some of the drawings are mine. Listen in.
The Crab Nebula was formed by a supernova that occurred just 900 years ago. This event was recorded by Chinese astronomers who described that one of the stars in the present-day constellation Taurus had suddenly grown as bright as the full moon. Over a period of two years, the supernova faded, leaving behind wispy remnants that are now recognized as the Crab Nebula. As the most easily observable supernova remnant, this nebula has been extensively studied. Studies show that the material within the central portion of the nebula changes within a time scale of only a few weeks.
