The setting sun ... the close of the story ... one soul alone returns
From Ellie -- This year, in the Middle East, things are changing with lightning speed. The fight for freedom and changes in the ways people live their lives, remains at the forefront. It's not about holidays and holy days, or gods of all sizes, shapes, and descriptions. It's about balance and peace - which sadly won't happen in the time that remains in this program.

Oxygen Molecules Discovered in Deep Space for First Time
Live Science - August 1, 2011
A team of scientists has discovered the first oxygen molecules in deep space, capping a nearly 230-year search for the elusive cosmic molecule. The oxygen molecules were detected in a star-forming region of the Orion nebula, roughly 1,500 light-years from Earth, by the European Space Agency's Herschel Space Observatory. The observatory used its large telescope and infrared detectors to hone in on the species, which is thought to be common in the cosmos, but has so far been hard to find. Individual atoms of oxygen (called atomic oxygen) are common in space, particularly around massive stars. But molecular oxygen, which is formed of two bonded oxygen atoms and makes up about 20 percent of the air we breathe on Earth, has eluded astronomers until now.

And this particular Dipper indeed seems to be dipping into a rich source of milk: the Milky Way!
