We love a good space image here at Geekosystem, like the new mosaics of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) and the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) galaxies from NASA’s Swift satellite. We’re not astrophysicists, just geeks who love space, so sometimes we don’t know exactly what we’re looking at. That’s why it’s great when NASA does stuff like having Swift team member Stefan Immler explain it like he does in this video. Warning: The pan-and-zoom nature of the video makes it slightly hypnotic.
