White hair

One day a little girl was sitting and watching her mother do the dishes at the kitchen sink. She suddenly noticed that her mother had several strands of white hair sticking out in contrast on her brunette head. 
She looked at her mother and inquisitively asked, "Why are some of your hairs white, Mom?" 
Her mother replied, "Well, every time that you do something wrong and make me cry or unhappy, one of my hairs turns white."

The little girl thought about this revelation for a while and then said, "Momma, how come ALL of grandma's hairs are white?"

Wits University astronomers have discovered three extremely luminous gamma-ray sources in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), the satellite galaxy of the Milky Way, using the High Energy Stereoscopic System (H.E.S.S.) telescopes. After seven years of collecting 200 hours of data, the scientists found these new sources, namely, the Pulsar Wind Nebula, Supernova Remnant, and the Superbubble. The discovery was featured in the latest edition of the scientific journal, Science, in a research paper titled: The exceptionally powerful TeV ƴ-ray emitters in the Large Magellanic Cloud. Wits scientists are part of a multinational team of astronomers working on the H.E.S.S telescope. Others are from North West University, and the universities of the Free State and Johannesburg.
