The Godzilla Constellation

In October 2018, NASA announced an “unofficial” constellation named after the King of Kaiju, Godzilla.

This is a gamma-ray constellation discovered by the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, and is one of 88 constellations described by the Fermi Telescope.

According to a NASA press release,

“By 2015, the number of different sources mapped by Fermi’s LAT had expanded to about 3,000 — 10 times the number known before the mission,” said Goddard’s Elizabeth Ferrara, who led the constellation project. “For the first time ever, the number of known gamma-ray sources was comparable to the number of bright stars, so we thought a new set of constellations was a great way to illustrate the point.”

S.H. Figuarts Ultraseven Alien Guts Action Figure

One of the best things about the Ultraman series is the goofy aliens and kaiju enemies. Alien Guts is a good example–a bird like species from the planet Guts, who appear in episodes 39 and 40 of Ultraseven.
