We's be in da space now.
Apparently the Pillars of Creation have already been destroyed by a supernova, yet since they are ~7000 Light years away we still see them at that time period. MINDFUCK

Those are some weird-looking solar systems.

Theres some even weirder looking astronomers.
Tycho Brahe lost part of his nose in a drunken duel with Manderup Parsbjerg in 1566, allegedly over who was the superior mathematician, and constructed his own prosthetic nose of copper. A wealthy nobleman himself, Tycho was known for his elaborate banquets, where he would entertain his guests with his clairvoyant dwarf jester, Jepp.
He also kept a tame moose in his care, which would be sent on visits to neighboring kingdoms as a sort of emissary. However, during one such visit, the moose became so inebriated on beer, that the poor animal fell down some stairs and died. Quite why the moose was indoors is unknown.
Wasn't this the guy who died because he refused to pee? And screwed up his bladder because of it? Something we learned in Astronomy class that I remember. Lol.
So says the legend...altough it's more lilkely he died of mercury poisoning
