Of Stars

by Ray Nelson

Alternative, thematic and cinematic in it's scope, Of Stars attempts to span all aspects of humanity, including the need for us to take risks, to risk failure in an attempt to improve ourselves as a species...we must learn from our mistakes to survive. 私たちがリスクを抱える必要性を含め、人類のあらゆる側面を網羅し、種として自分自身を改善しようとする失敗を危険にさらそうとしています...私たちは間違いから学ばなければなりません。生き残ります。

Near the outskirts of the Small Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy some 200 thousand light-years distant, lies 5 million year young star cluster NGC 602. Surrounded by natal gas and dust, NGC 602 is featured in this stunning Hubble image of the region. Fantastic ridges and swept back shapes strongly suggest that energetic radiation and shock waves from NGC 602's massive young stars have eroded the dusty material and triggered a progression of star formation moving away from the cluster's center. At the estimated distance of the Small Magellanic Cloud, the picture spans about 200 light-years, but a tantalizing assortment of background galaxies are also visible in the sharp Hubble view. The background galaxies are hundreds of millions of light-years or more beyond NGC 602.

主な背景 - NASA、ESA、およびHubble Heritageチーム(STScI / AURA) - ESA / Hubble Collaboration
小さなマゼラン雲の郊外には約200,000光年離れた衛星銀河があり、5百万年の若い星団NGC 602があります。NGC 602は、出生ガスや塵に囲まれてこの驚くべきハッブルのイメージを取り入れています。ファンタスティックな尾根と後退した形状は、NGC 602の巨大な若い星からの強力な放射線と衝撃波が、ほこりの多い物質を侵食し、クラスターの中心から離れて星形成が進行することを強く示唆しています。スモールマゼラン雲の推定距離では、画像は約200光年に及ぶが、鋭いハッブルビューで背景の銀河の魅力的な品揃えが見える。背景銀河はNGC602を超えて何億年もの光年以上です。

Lover, of stars
Enjoyed the album and found it quite chilling to listen to. My favourite tracks were the livelier ones. Particularly liked, Of Stars, Whatever The Future May Hold and Freedom To Fail (reprise). Great stuff..!
