The Tadpole


The_TadpoleWhen I was a kid, one of the pleasures of spring was going to the creek and catching tadpoles. This bright blue tadpole seems to swim through the inky blackness of space. Catalogued as IRAS 20324+4057, “The Tadpole” is a clump of gas and dust giving birth to a bright protostar, one of the earliest steps in building a star.

There are multiple protostars in the tadpole’s head; the glowing yellow one in this image is the most luminous and massive. When this protostar has gathered together enough mass from its surroundings, it will become a fully-fledged young star.

The intense blue glow is caused by intense ultraviolet radiation from nearby stars. Pressure from that UV sculpts the tail into a long, wiggly shape. The Tadpole spans roughly a light-year from head to tail-tip, and contains gas with about four times the mass of the Sun.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin began one of his whiny pleadings in his vexatious Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness with this—ECF 49-1Well, that’s wrong.

OK, it’s true that I write about TDPK every day, and I intend to do so every day until he is brought to justice. It’s not true that I write false things about him, at least, not on purpose. I have occasionally made errors, and I when I do, I promptly publish corrections. For example.

Recently, this blog published documentary evidence of Brett Kimberlin’s forgeries of multiple documents submitted as exhibits to pleadings in three lawsuits. He has admitted to forging a summons in the RICO Madness and a Certified Mail green card in the the state Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance suit. He has admitted in open court that he has never paid the fee for Restricted Delivery with any of his mailings. That admission against interest essentially proves that the other green cards with the Restricted Delivery box marked are bogus.

BaghdadBlob20140113Hogewash! has not been the source of the false narrative being spun about service of process in TDPK’s anti-First-Amendment lawsuits.

You can help my codefendants in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawfare (Aaron Walker, Stacy McCain, Ali Akbar, and Kimberlin Unmasked) and me defend our First Amendment rights from TDPK’s attack. Go to Bomber Sues Bloggers to find out how.
