It's Christmastime in the Cosmos

We Are So Lucky To Have Our Planet

At Case Medical, we believe in science, innovation, safer chemical usage, and better patient outcomes. Just the other day, we came across this article in the NY Times that demonstrates how unique our planet is and how lucky we are to exist in the vast universe. During this holiday season, we send you our greetings and a little note to reflect on the wonders of science, and what each of us can do to contribute to a safer world.

The Christmas Tree Galaxy Cluster

“For astronomers peering into the depths of the universe, Christmas came a little early this year.”

NASA released an image last month of a Christmas Tree Galaxy Cluster, a winking collection of galaxies 4.3 billion light-years from Earth. These images and others follow a long tradition of astronomers and other stargazers connecting the season of light with cosmic phenomena. Underlying the Christmas Tree Galaxy Cluster was a detection by astronomers of 14 stars that flicker over days or months — like the lights on a Christmas tree. Earth and the sun are about as old as the light arriving from this twinkling cluster, which, at the time that light was emitted, was already 9 billion years old.

Wishing you and yours a happy and healthy holiday season.
