Telling was the Chairman and CEO of Sears, Roebuck and Company (1978–85). accessdate 2009-05-15 It can be seen that the galaxy is beginning to retake the form of a normal spiral galaxy, with arms spreading out from a central core. thumb 300px right A spectacular head-on Interacting galaxy collision between two galaxies (File:cartwheel.galaxy.arp.750pix.jpg) is seen in this NASA Hubble Space Telescope true-color image of the Cartwheel Galaxy. Alternatively, a model based on the gravitational Jeans instability of both axisymmetric (radial) and nonaxisymmetric (spiral) small-amplitude gravity perturbations allows an association between growing clumps of matter and the gravitationally unstable axisymmetric and nonaxisymmetric waves which take on the appearance of a ring and spokes. *Štefan Banič – inventor of the military parachute and one of the first actually used parachute *Eugene Cernan – retired United States Navy officer (Officer (armed forces)) and a former NASA astronaut involved in the Apollo program (Slovak father) *Richard Marcinko – U.S. Navy SEAL and Founder of SEAL Team 6 In 2004, Padovani and several other astronomers at the European Astrophysical Virtual Observatory (AVO), coordinated between the Space Telescope European Coordinating Facility and the European Southern Observatory in Munich discovered 30 supermassive black holes which were previously obscured by dust clouds. It was the first scientific discovery to emerge from a Virtual Observatory. Padovani and the team used a pioneering technique in which they combined information from multiple wavelengths from Hubble, ESO’s telescope and NASA's Chandra and used virtual observatory tools. According to Paolo Padovani, “This discovery means that surveys of powerful supermassive black holes have so far underestimated their numbers by at least a factor of two, and possibly by up to a factor of five.” According to Peter Quinn, director of the AVO, the virtual observatory observations are the future of astronomy and will facilitate more discoveries in the future." If this means complete power, as opposed to having to deal with the checks and balances (w:checks and balances) built into our federal government, this is some of what I'd do: I'd end abortion and all the precipitating factors leading to it (poverty, dysfunctional family dynamics, relaxed sexual mores, alcohol and drug addiction...). I'd mobilize a set of dramatic initiatives to, not just curb global warming (w:global warming), but to actually start to reverse it. I would unilaterally disarm our nuclear weapons. I'd stop the production of nuclear energy. (Anybody hear of Chernobyl (w:Chernobyl)?) I would grant amnesty and family reunification to illegal immigrants (w:Illegal Immigration in the United States). (During a talk at an immigration rally in Arizona several years ago, I said we walked through the slums of w:Juarez, Mexico Juarez , where violence is off the charts and many of the children are extremely hungry. If I was their parent, I'd do everything I could to get these children out of harms way and get them something to eat – even if it meant risking crossing the border illegally.) I would end the death penalty. Also in Arizona, I read a newspaper story about a death penalty protester who posed: “Why do we kill people who kill people to show that killing people is wrong?” Good question. I would increase, exponentially, American foreign aid (it is currently only 4% of the budget) to try to help stem world hunger much more – 24,000 people starve to death every day in the world – and to help realize Habitat for Humanity (w:Habitat for Humanity)'s goal of providing adequate housing, (“…for every person in the world.”) I would bring peace to urban war zones around the country. (In part of this effort, our family moved into a dangerous part of Cleveland, Ohio, to be part of the solution.) I would end w:homelessness homelessness . (We take homeless people into our home. And we will be doing the same in the West Wing (w:West Wing). I mean the Lincoln bedroom (w:Lincoln Bedroom) is free, as an example.) I would tremendously jack down and simplify the economy, shifting America back to much more of a local production for local consumption orientation, like it was in the “old days.” I would mobilize efforts for a tremendous come back of the small family farm and the practice of growing organically. This was once the backbone of our country, I told the newspaper Country Today in Wisconsin. And it should be again. I would get people to tighten their belts and pay off the w:National Debt National Debt so our children don't inherit it. During a talk at the University of Notre Dame (w:University of Notre Dame) recently, I said I would redirect the technical smarts at NASA (w:NASA) toward coming up with better water filtration systems, solar panel (w:solar panel)s, wind turbine (w:wind turbine)s..., as opposed to working on things like going to space destinations where we: can't breathe the air, there's no gravity and there's no food! “That might be, oh, a hint God doesn't want us there,” I said. I would give some of the land back to the Native Americans (w:Native Americans) so it's equitable, like it should have been from the beginning. And I would give the African Americans (w:African Americans) tangible reparations for past atrocities (w:Reparations for slavery) and the ongoing trans-generational problems slavery (w:slavery) caused. And, I would ensure – as impossible as this seems – that the Cleveland Browns (w:Cleveland Browns) had a winning season, soon... For a look at how I would actually try to make a lot of this happen, the Cleveland Browns notwithstanding, go to my rather extensive position papers at ''Atlantis'' lifted off in fair weather at 2:20 p.m. EDT (1820 UTC) from the w:Kennedy Space Center Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral (w:Cape Canaveral), Florida. The launch was viewed by over 40,000 spectators at Kennedy, including a small group chosen by NASA (w:NASA) for a space "tweetup (w:Twitter)". Carrying six veteran astronauts and an assortment of parts for the International Space Station (w:International Space Station) (ISS), the shuttle took off without any delays. This mission, scheduled to take twelve days, is the aging shuttle's 32nd voyage into space of its 25-year career.
