Photos Taken at Chilean Observatory Show How One Galaxy Ate Another

first_imgBy Dialogo December 01, 2009 Astronomers with the European Southern Observatory (ESO) in Chile have taken photographs that show how the galaxy Centaurus A ate another, spiral one, between 200 and 700 million years ago, the scientific body announced. The clarity of the new photos is due to the use of the 3.58-meter New Technology Telescope located at La Silla Observatory, in northern Chile, which makes it possible to obtain an even sharper view of the structure of this galaxy, completely free of the dust that obscures it. Centaurus A is the giant elliptical galaxy closest to Earth, at a distance of about 11 million light-years, and is one of the most studied objects in the southern sky, according to the ESO. The well-known British astronomer John Herschel, the author of one of the largest catalogues of the southern skies, detected this galaxy in 1847. Years later, and thanks to observations by the ESA Infrared Space Observatory, a structure 16,500 light-years across was identified, and more recently, the U.S. space agency (NASA)’s Spitzer Space Telescope clarified that the structure is a parallelogram, a giant spiral galaxy, the result of the fusion of two galaxies. “Further analysis of this structure will provide important clues on how the merging process occurred and what has been the role of star formation during it,” Jouni Kainulainen, the principal author of the article published in the journal Astronomy and Astrophysics, maintained in a statement. The activity in the interior of Centaurus A is ongoing, and images captured by the Very Large Telescope, installed in the Cerro Paranal observatory, also in northern Chile, have revealed a black hole at the center of the galaxy with a mass equivalent to 200 million times that of the sun. Unlike the case of the black hole at the center of our galaxy, the Milky Way, the Centaurus black hole is continuously fed by material falling into it, confirming Centaurus as a very active giant galaxy. The ESO is the principal European intergovernmental astronomical organization. It is supported by fourteen countries: Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Finland, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.last_img read more

#DentalFeature: The Risks And Benefits Of Kissing On Oral Health

first_imgClose up of smiling couple kissing PLANTATION, Florida – It might be weird to think about in the moment but sharing a kiss can be beneficial to your mouth. This is because the act of kissing activates certain biological processes you might not be aware of.While there are benefits of kissing on oral health, risks also exist. Learn more about both the positive and negative oral health effects associated with this gesture.What’s Really Exchanged in a Kiss?According to a study done, you have over 700 species of bacteria and organisms in your mouth. These bacteria are found in your saliva and on your oral surfaces, including your teeth, tongue, cheeks and surrounding areas. As the study explains, your tongue, in particular, is responsible for many of the microorganisms that wind up in your saliva.So, what happens when two people kiss? In a single kiss lasting approximately 10 seconds, a whopping 80 million bacteria can be transferred from mouth to mouth!Benefits of Kissing on Oral HealthYou may question how the exchange of saliva and bacteria could possibly be healthy, but kissing may offer some notable oral health benefits.For starters, kissing can increase salivary flow. Saliva is important because it helps to wash away excess food debris in the mouth and neutralizes harmful acids that can cause tooth decay. Some organisms in your saliva can help to decrease bacterial growth and even slow down plaque formation. Certain organisms in saliva help stop the growth of harmful bacteria, such as those responsible for oral thrush or strains of Streptococcus bacteria, which play a part in tooth decay. In short, a healthy saliva flow promotes a healthy mouth.And while kissing isn’t a sure path to immunity, kissing exposes you to more germs, which can help to boost your immune system. So, to some degree, you’re strengthening your body’s resistance to infectious organisms when sharing a kiss!Risks of Swapping SalivaThere is always some risk of illness when meeting bodily fluid. Kissing can make you susceptible to contagious illnesses, such as the common cold, herpes simplex virus or certain mouth warts.Kissing can also transmit the bad bacteria that lead to cavities. This risk is particularly important to keep in mind when kissing babies and newborns. They don’t have the bacteria that cause tooth decay in their mouths at birth, but if someone with infected saliva kisses them, those bacteria can then colonize.How to Maintain Oral Health When KissingThe act of kissing has its benefits and risks, and it can ultimately affect your oral health. Follow these tips and best practices to ensure that your gesture has no unintended consequences:Avoid kissing babies directly on the lips to prevent putting them at risk for tooth decay.Do not kiss someone if you — or they — are ill or have any mouth sores present.Maintain optimal oral hygiene, which includes brushing your teeth twice daily, flossing once daily and visiting your dentist every six months.It’s in everyone’s best interest to maintain excellent oral and bodily health. Keep in mind these risks and benefits of kissing on oral health and feel good about sharing this intimate gesture safely!Dr Sharon Robinson, DDS, owns and operates the Dental Place in Plantation, Florida, with a second office – the Dental Place Cosmetix Spa in Kingston, Jamaica.
