A Colossal Interaction


An interacting colossusThis picture shows a galaxy known as NGC 6872 in the constellation of Pavo (The Peacock). Its unusual shape is caused by its interactions with the smaller galaxy called IC 4970 that can be seen just above it. The pair are roughly 300 million light-years away from Earth.

NGC 6872 measures over 500,000 light-years across. It’s the second largest spiral galaxy discovered thus far. Our own galaxy, the Milky Way, measures around 100,000 light-years across.

The upper left spiral arm of NGC 6872 appears distorted and is filled with star-forming regions which appear blue on this Hubble image. That may have been be caused by IC 4970 recently (only about 130 million years ago) passing through this spiral arm. Astronomers have noted that NGC 6872 seems to be relatively sparse in terms of free hydrogen, which is the basis material for new stars. It is probable that if it weren’t for its interactions with IC 4970, NGC 6872 might not have been able to produce these new bursts of star formation.

Today is the fourth anniversary of the false criminal charge filed against me by the Kimberlins being dropped because there was no evidence to support their allegations. Their criminal complaint was filed alleging that I had engaged in online harassment of Tetyana Kimberlin’s elder daughter by writing truthful things about Brett Kimberlin on the this blog and Twitter after both the District Court and Circuit Court had denied a peace order petition against me based on the same allegations. Four years ago today, I ran this post titled And In Other Legal News.

The Montgomery County State’s Attorney has entered a nolle prosequi on the bogus criminal charge filed against me.NolleProssed20160624That case is now resolved in my favor. The companion charge filed against Aaron Walker has received the same disposition.

Yesterday, the Maryland Court of Appeals published the list of petitions for writs of certiorari it has denied for the month of June. Here’s an extract from the list.Cert denied 20160625This was The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s attempt to appeal the affirmation by the Court of Special Appeals of the defendants’ win in the Circuit Court, and it keeps his batting average perfect at .000.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

I’m not done with the Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin yet.
