A picture of Pulsar B1509 taken by NASA’s Chandra X-Ray observatory. This “hand-like” shape spans 150 light years but it is caused by a neutron star that has a 12 mile diameter. Amazing.

Yet, what is even more amazing is that 5% of people (at one time it was as high as 43%) think it shows that hand of god (Daily News). Sigh. We definitely need more science education.
