Gamma Ray Burst

Do you know about Gamma Ray Bursts?

Turns out the Universe does not give a fuck about us, or anybody else for that matter.

I was reading the wonderful book At Least Know This: Essential Science to Enhance Your Life by Guy P. Harrison (required reading if you want to know how the world works) and it the last chapter I was reading all about Gamma Ray Burst (GRB).

In any moment in time, a neutron star might decide to explode emitting a form of radiation known as a Gamma Ray Burst that will incinerate everything in its path. EVERYTHING!

Scientist agree that if it happens within our galaxy, we wouldn’t even feel it. In other words death will come swiftly!

I created this piece in honor of all the Gamma Ray Burst that might be lurking out there in the mighty, mighty universe.

Created using Fractal Architect, Filter Forge and Lens Flare Studio.

Happy Friday?
