Beyond Far Centaurus
A favorite A.E. van Vogt title (title, alas he often had better book and story titles than actual tales!) is Far Centaurus. Today's Astronomy Picture of the Day takes us beyond Far Centaurus, to NGC 4945 in the constellation of Centaurus. What energetic madness lies at the core of this Seyfert galaxy? Can we get beyond the blue event horizon?
