Loving Vincent is an investigation delving into the life and controversial death of Vincent Van Gogh, one of the world’s most beloved painters, told by his paintings and by the characters that inhabit them. The film will be the world’s first feature-length painted animation, and is brought to you by Oscar winning film companies Breakthru Films and Trademark Films. Every frame in the Loving Vincent movie is an oil painting on canvas, using the very same technique in which Vincent himself painted.
A beautifully animated description of what we know about the creation of the Universe, so far.
We can see most of the how, though who knows how long this can last. Does the universe build in enough time for the beings that study it, to reveal why it happened? We’ll see I guess. :D
A wormhole? A GIANT spaceship? An intergalactic disco? None, actually.
This is, believe it or not, a real photo taken by the Chandra x-ray observatory. The central object is a quasar, RX J1131-1231 (RX J1131 for short), located about 6 billion light years from Earth.
According to Chandra, "Gravitational lensing by an intervening elliptical galaxy has created four different images of the quasar, shown by the Chandra data in pink.”
It’s certainly one of the clearest images of this effect we’ve seen in a while, and one of the sparkliest!

He’s a man that can’t drive his own time machine, right? He’s a bloke. He’s a bloke that stole a time machine and called himself the Doctor. He doesn’t even try to seek out injustice, he just blunders around trying to go to lunch and, because he’s a good man, tries to save people if it comes up that he has to do that. He’s not a deity. He’s just simply not. He’s not human, but he’s human in the other sense of the word.- Steven Moffat
