Galaxy ESO 137-001 is tearing itself apart
This is what it looks like when a spiral galaxy, traveling nearly 4.5 million miles per hour, plows into interstellar gas clouds. This composite made from images from the Hubble Space Telescope and the Chandra X-Ray Telescope show a trail of destruction spanning light years of space. I’m sure this is making a helluva light show for anything living in that galaxy.

Man spends $35,000 to renovate his house for his 18 cats
The house includes a beefed-up ventilation system, which probably keeps it from smelling like urine. However, anyone with more than about 3 cats needs an intervention.

Now that’s some cold shit: The world’s largest ice cave
Located in Werfen, Austria, the Eisriesenwelt (German for “World of the Ice Giants”) is the largest ice cave in the world. Composed of limestone and 42km long, it is a truly astonishing work of nature. For years, many locals believed that the cave was the entrance to Hell and refused to go near it. It was eventually explored by Anton Posselt in 1879. What he discovered was one of the most beautiful natural formations ever discovered.

It’s the Andromeda Strain! Scientists accidentally create a two-dimensional quasicrystal made from self-assembling organic molecules
This odd quasicrystal is flat, made from a single layer of molecules with five-sided rings. The molecules form groups within the layer as weak hydrogen bonds link them together. These molecular groups are assembled in a way that forces other molecules in the layer into shapes including pentagons, stars, boats, and rhombi. If this were a regular old crystal, you’d expect to see these groups and shapes repeated over and over throughout the layer in a predictable way. But in this quasicrystal, you’ll see the same shapes over and over in the layer, but not in any organized pattern.
The things that set these quasicrystals apart from all the others, scientists say, are its organic materials and self-assembling parts.”
