The gravitational orbit of any moon, planet, star or galaxy forms a helix, when you view it traveling through a time dimension

<b>The gravitational orbit of any moon, planet, star or galaxy forms a helix, when you view it traveling through a time dimension.</b> A 3-dimensional helix is a ‘slice’ of the 4-dimensional shape of the orbit of a planet; Y is a time dimension, X and Z are space dimensions. One 2D slice of a 3D helix is a circle, another is a wave. One 3D slice of a 4D helix is a sphere; a planet in a specific moment of time.<p>Interesting patterns are revealed when you start thinking about the 4-dimensional shapes of …

Watch this: A spellbinding tour of watery Mars during the planet's early days

APOD: The Jets of NGC 1097 (2013 Nov 14) Image Credit & Copyright: Martin Pugh http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap131114.html Explanation: Enigmatic spiral galaxy NGC 1097 shines in southern skies, about 45 million light-years away in the chemical constellation Fornax. Its blue spiral arms are mottled with pinkish star forming regions in this colorful galaxy portrait. They seem to have wrapped around a small companion galaxy below and left of center, about 40,000 light-years from the spiral's luminous core. That's not NGC 1097's most peculiar feature, though. The very deep exposure hints of faint, mysterious jets, most easily seen to extend well beyond the bluish arms toward the lower right. In fact, four faint jets are ultimately recognized in optical images of NGC 1097. The jets trace an X centered on the galaxy's nucleus, but probably don't originate there. Instead, they could be fossil star streams, trails left over from the capture and disruption of a much smaller galaxy in the large spiral's ancient past. A Seyfert galaxy, NGC 1097's nucleus also harbors a supermassive black hole. http://www.martinpughastrophotography.id.au/ Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=131114 #APOD
