Herschel Spectroscopy of Future Supernova 21

davecl writes "ESA's Herschel Space Telescope has released its first spectroscopic results. These include observations of VYCMa, a star 50 times as massive as the sun and soon to become a supernova, as well as a nearby galaxy, more distant colliding starburst galaxies and a comet in our own solar system. The spectra show more lines than have ever been seen in these objects in the far-infrared and will allow astronomers to work out the detailed chemistry and physics behind star and planet formation as well as the last stages of stellar evolution before VYCMa's eventual collapse into a supernova. More coverage is available at the Herschel Mission Blog, which I run."

Easy to try, and it's worked for me, as well as a heck of a lot of people on their forums.

You don't need the book, it's more an explanation of why it works. Just get some extra-light olive oil and start by taking a tablespoon in the middle of a 2-hour taste-free window (no gum, no toothpaste, no cigs, no food, no soda).
