"What is contrary to the visible truth must change or disappear—that’s the law of life. If anyone thinks it’s really essential to build the life of human society on a foundation of lies, well, in my estimation, such a society is not worth preserving. If, on the other hand, one believes that truth is the indispensable foundation, then conscience bids one intervene in the name of truth, and exterminate the lie. Periods that have endured such affronts without protesting will be condemned by people of the coming generations. I shall never believe that what is founded on lies can endure for ever. I believe in truth. I’m sure that, in the long run, truth must be victorious. Research must remain free and unfettered by any State restriction. The facts which it establishes represent Truth, and Truth is never evil. The man of research is by nature extremely cautious; he never ceases to work, to ponder, to weigh and to doubt, and his suspicious nature breeds in him an inclination towards solitude and most rigorous self-criticism." — Adolf Hitler, from Hitler’s Table Talk, 1941-1944: His Private Conversations

Spiral Galaxy What's happening around the center of this spiral galaxy? Seen in total, NGC 1512 appears to be a barred spiral galaxy -- a type of spiral that has a straight bar of stars across its center. This bar crosses an inner ring, though, a ring not seen as it surrounds the pictured region. Featured in this Hubble Space Telescope image is a "nuclear ring" -- one that surrounds the nucleus of the spiral. The two rings are connected not only by a bar of bright stars but by dark lanes of dust. Inside of this nuclearring, dust continues to spiral right into the very center -- possibly the location of a large black hole. The rings are bright with newly formed stars.
