Slightly interesting article about thermodynamics and self-organising systems.
I noticed that nowhere in this article do they say: "The Second Law of Thermodynamics is a bitch!". Which it is.
These scientist types, I mean, really.

In 2003 and 2004, astronomers aimed the Hubble Space Telescope into a patch of apparently empty space, located in the constellation of Fornax, just below the constellation of Orion the hunter. The image spans just one-tenth the diameter of the full Moon, but reveals an estimated 10,000 galaxies. These were the first galaxies to emerge from the so-called "dark ages", the time shortly after the big bang when the first stars lit up the cold, dark Universe.
