There is nothing more frightful than ignorance in action. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 - 1832)
Cocoon Nebula Deep Field.
Image Credit & Copyright: Marcel Drechsler (Baerenstein Obs). Inside the Cocoon Nebula is a newly developing cluster of stars, and punctuated by a long trail of obscuring interstellar dust clouds to its left. Catalogued as IC 5146, the nebula is nearly 15 light-years wide, located some 3,300 light years away toward the northern constellation of the Swan (Cygnus). Like other star-forming regions, it stands out in red glowing hydrogen gas excited by young hot stars, and blue dust-reflected starlight at the edge of a nearly invisible molecular cloud. The bright star near the centre of this nebula is only a few hundred thousand years old, powering the nebular glow as it slowly clears out a cavity in the molecular cloud's star-forming dust and gas.

The Kachin people are a confederation of ethnic groups who inhabit the Kachin Hills in northern Burma's Kachin State and neighbouring Yunnan Province, China, and Arunachal Pradesh, India. About one million Kachin peoples live in the region. The term Kachin people is often used interchangeably with the main subset, called the Jingpo people in China. The Jingpho language common to many of the Kachin has a variety of dialects and is written with a Latin-based script created in the late nineteenth century.
The flag of Mongolia is a vertical tricolour with two reds at insides and a blue in the middle, with the Soyombo symbol defacing the left red stripe. The blue stripe is described as the eternal blue sky and the red stripes symbolise thriving forever. The Soyombo symbol is a geometric abstraction that represents fire, sun, moon, earth, water, and a round shape as dualist aspect. The current flag was adopted on February 12, 1992, after the transition of Mongolia to a liberal democracy.
The Elgin Marbles, also known as the Parthenon Marbles, are a collection of Classical Greek marble sculptures made under the supervision of the architect and sculptor Phidias and his assistants in c. 447 to 438 BC; originally part of the temple of the Parthenon and other buildings on the Acropolis of Athens. From 1801 to 1812, agents of Thomas Bruce, 7th Earl of Elgin removed about half of the surviving sculptures of the Parthenon, and transported them to Britain. The half not removed is now displayed in the Acropolis Museum. In Britain, the acquisition of the collection was not supported by some, and the Earl's actions was likened to vandalism. Following a public debate in Parliament and its subsequent exoneration of Elgin, he sold the Marbles to the British government in 1816. They were then passed to the British Museum, where they are now on display in the purpose-built Duveen Gallery.
