I had gotten along really well with Sophie, and I just remember she was super tall

<i>I had gotten along really well with Sophie, and I just remember she was super tall. After everything we do she’s like ‘aw you’re really cute’ and I’m like, ‘yeah, I’m only one year younger than you.’ I came out of the audition and said to my mum, ‘even if I don’t get that part, I really want that girl to. She’s really cool.’ But yeah, we got on really really well. —</i> <b>Maisie Williams</b>

Hubble Sees a Galaxy With a Glowing Heart -- This view, captured by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, shows a nearby spiral galaxy known as NGC 1433. At about 32 million light-years from Earth, it is a type of very active galaxy known as a Seyfert galaxy — a classification that accounts for 10% of all galaxies. They have very bright, luminous centers that are comparable in brightness to that of our entire galaxy, the Milky Way. Galaxy cores are of great interest to astronomers. The centers of most, if not all, galaxies are thought to contain a supermassive black hole, surrounded by a disk of in-falling material. NGC 1433 is being studied as part of a survey of 50 nearby galaxies known as the Legacy ExtraGalactic UV Survey (LEGUS). Ultraviolet radiation is observed from galaxies, mainly tracing the most recently formed stars. In Seyfert galaxies, ultraviolet light is also thought to emanate from the accretion discs around their central black holes. Studying these galaxies in the ultraviolet part of the spectrum is incredibly useful to study how the gas is behaving near the black hole. This image was obtained using a mix of ultraviolet, visible, and infrared light. Credit: ESA/Hubble & NASA, Acknowledgements: D.
