I'm outta here!






Outcast Star Zooms Out of Milky Way Galaxy
Washington (Reuters)



Since I was a kid I've been fascinated by space, astrology. Trying to wrap my mind around such vastness of empty space, unfathomable distances and the sheer enormity of the denizens must appeal to me. Maybe that's why politics also holds such interest. LOL

But here's a body I truly envy... a star catapulting out of the Milky Way to the universe and experiences unknown -the result of a close encounter with a black hole! Oh but I could catch a ride! Amazing stuff... just amazing.

The above photo is an artist's rendition of the event.

Was John Kerry on that star?

If only, TrekMed... But I suspect he would be one of the burnt out kind!
