Adjusting your picture orientation on your HiDef television is a sort of complicated affair. Understanding dimension formats will help you to set the best screen setting for your television. All the old models of televisions that had a CRT (cathode ray tube) had a generally square shape to them, as opposed to rectangular. These traditional screen dimensions were referred as a 4:3 (ratio) dimension. Newer flat panel televisions and Computer Monitors are referred to as 16:9 (ratio) dimension because they have a wider width. When you go to the theatre, and watch a movie, the big screen is also in the 16:9 dimension. When the movie was converted from theatre size to television screen size, there were a couple different methods to compress a 16:9 to a 4:3. The oldest method was just to use a convex distortion lense that would squish the 16 dimension down to the 4 dimension (mathematically, 4:3 expanded would result in a 12:9 ratio, whereby you would have a difference of 4 - 2 increments on each side of black bars from the top to the bottom of the screen. A newer method of downconverting 16:9 to 4:3 was letterboxing. Letterboxing shows the full width of the 16:9, but then you have a residual black bar on the top and bottom of the screen which is most prevalent today. If you change your picture orientation on your television to letterbox, you will be able to see the full width of the picture, and then you can "autosize" stretch the vertical dimension to the full height of the screen. This results in a picture that uses all of your screens real estate, with the least amount of distortion.

How far away is the nearest quasar?

Quasars are generally considered to be up to 10-12 billion light-years away. Despite being the brightest quasar visible from earth (and therefore the first to be discovered) EC-273 is not actually the closest to Earth. A quasar named PKS2349 is actually the closest, being around 1500 million light years away (1.5 billion) from earth.

What is a qazar?

Quasar.From Wikipedia:A quasi-stellar radio source (quasar) is a very energetic and distant galaxy with an active galactic nucleus. Quasars were first identified as being high redshift sources of electromagnetic energy, including radio waves and visible light, that were point-like, similar to stars, rather than extended sources similar to galaxies.
