St. Bagu's Sound
St. Bagu recently released their debut EP entitled "Lines." The EP is six original songs, revealing a marriage of sound between hip hop, arena rock, honkeytonk, jazz, and much more you'd be better off hearing than reading about.
St. Bagu Live
Live, St. Bagu delivers an energetic set fueled by the true belief in what their songs mean and stand for. These songs are songs of the soul. They are songs of celebration; songs of agony; songs of diligence; and songs about wonder. They are delivered with conviction, knowing that a song in its truest form is not a noun to toy with, but a verb that acts as a catalyst for true movement.
Jeff and Michael met on a warm, late summer afternoon, and while puppies were licking ice cream off of the faces of children fixing their bikes, they were drinking cheap beer and working on creative arrangements of Frank Sinatra songs.
Brad B, the dark lord of boom saw the duo from afar, and took it upon himself to destroy the unflinching heroes.
The pick of the litter is a planet that's already been in the spotlight: HD 85512 b, a world at least 3.6 times as massive as Earth that's located 36 light-years away in the constellation Vela. HD 85512 b is the only one of the 16 super-Earths on today's list that is located in its star system's habitable zone. That's the area around a star where scientists believe water could exist in liquid form, which would make a rocky planet potentially livable.
HD 85512 b's status came to light a couple of weeks ago in a paper submitted to the journal Astronomy and Astrophysics, but the team behind the discovery provided more details about that super-Earth and the dozens of other worlds in papers presented today at the Extreme Solar Systems II conference in Wyoming.
The findings came from the team behind the High Accuracy Radial Velocity Planet Searcher, or HARPS, which is installed at the European Southern Observatory's 11.8-foot (3.6-meter) La Silla Observatory in Chile.
"The detection of HD 85512 b is far from the limit of HARPS, and demonstrates the possibility of discovering other super-Earths in the habitable zones around stars similar to the sun," University of Geneva astronomer Michel Mayor said in today's news release from the ESO.
Super-Earths, which range from Earth's mass to worlds 10 times more massive, are of particular interest to planet-hunters because it's thought that they could be even more conducive to the development of life than our own planet. When the search for extrasolar planets began more than 15 years ago, the telescopes used for the task could only detect giant planets like our own solar system's Jupiter.
