  Beauty & mystery in science.

The bright stars in the lower right hand corner are Hodge 301, located in the Tarantula Nebula within the Large Magellanic Cloud. These bright exploding stars send matter hurling through space at speeds up to 200 miles per second. This matter causes the sheeting seen in the upper left of the image.

Motion of a Spinning Top

There are many forms and shapes of spinning tops, and they are put into motion in an interesting variety of ways. Some are spun by snap-twisting a center stem with your fingers and releasing. Others are spun using a cord. Regardless of how the tops are spun, they behave in a similar fashion.
