Waiting to hear what it sounds like while listening to this jammin beat.


Such a strange pattern of sounds. Feels so alien.


That’s a lot of flanging. Can they not clean up the audio? I doubt whatever is causing that pulse is also causing the flange.


We took a picture of a neutron star binary 1,000 *light years* away. I need to know the focal length if the camera that did this. It’s ***insane***.


It feels terrifying to think such a massive neutron star is spinning that fast…
