galaxies and stars

Our galaxy, the Milky way, is traditional: it has loads of billions of stars, enough fuel and dirt to make billions greater stars, and at the least ten instances as lots dark depend as all the stars and gasoline put together. And it’s all held together through gravity.

Shockwave of an exploding star seen for the first time in sky exploding star - Over 75 million light-years away in the constellation of Virgo (The Virgin) lies NGC 4981 a spiral galaxy with a rather explosive past. NGC 4981 was discovered on 17 April 1784 by William Herschel, and subsequently documented in John Dreyer’s New General Catalogue. Over a century later, on 23 April 1968, the galaxy once again made it into the records when a Type la supernova — a stellar explosion in a binary star system — occurred within its confines: SN 1968I. SN 1968I, however, was not to be the galaxy’s only supernova. Decades later, the core collapse of a massive star led to supernova SN 2007c. This spectacular shot of NGC 4981 — not showing any of the supernovae explosions; the bright star visible in t

The Porpoise Galaxy galaxies Facts   galaxies Fact.s ne look at the Porpoise Galaxy, or NGC 2936, will tell you exactly where the name comes from. It looks just like a dolphin, though some say it looks more like a penguin protecting an egg. In reality, this is a system of two galaxies: The “dolphin” is actually part of NG 2936, while the “egg” is called Arp 142. The dolphin portion used to be a spiral galaxy similar to the Milky Way, but the immense gravitational forces of the denser galaxy below has contorted its shape significantly. The dolphin’s “eye” is what used to be the spiral galaxy’s core. This galaxy is also within the Hydra constellation, and within a billion years or so, the pair will merge into one. For now, we’ll just enjoy the galactic equivalent of a clown making ball

Its first component launched into orbit in 1998, and weighing 419,455 kg (924,740 lb), it is now the largest man-made body in low Earth orbit and can often be seen with the naked eye from Earth. The ISS consists of pressurized modules, external trusses, solar arrays, and other components. ISS components have been launched by Russian Proton and Soyuz rockets, and American Space Shuttles. INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATIONER PLODDED DIAGRAM INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION The International Space Station plodded diagram serves as a Microgravity and space environment

Jupiter and Saturn, 15th May 2017

Jupiter and Saturn Jupiter and Saturn There haven't been very many moon transits visible from my location this Jupiter season, so I was happy to jag this one last night, despite some thin cloud and deteriorating seeing conditions as Jupiter sank in the west. Europa is seen bright on the disk at lower left, with its shadow on the right. Io is visible further to the right, and would transit later, in the early hours of the morning, too late for me. Saturn is improving as a target as if approaches opposition on June 15th, and I'm well placed to take advantage, with the planet getting up to 83° altitude at my latitude. Some sharpening artifact in this example, but I'll keep trying. Meade LX90 8" SCT with 2X Barlow lens using QHY 5L-II CMOS camera through Orion LRGB filters. Processing in

What's happening to this spiral galaxy?  spiral galaxy Although details remain uncertain, it surely has to do with an ongoing battle with its smaller galactic neighbor. The featured galaxy is labelled UGC 1810 by itself, but together with its collisional partner is known as Arp 273. The overall shape of the UGC 1810 -- in particular its blue outer ring - is likely a result of wild and violent gravitational interactions. This ring's blue color is caused by massive stars that are blue hot and have formed only in the past few million years. The inner galaxy appears older, redder, and threaded with cool filamentary dust. A few bright stars appear well in the foreground, unrelated to UGC 1810, while several galaxies are visible well in the background. Arp 273 lies about 300 million light years

Gullies are active in the winter due to carbon dioxide frost, but northern winters are shorter and warmer than southern winters, so there is less frost and less gully activity.An enhanced-color image cutout shows recent gullies with bright colors.

However, the spiral galaxy NGC 7252 acquired exactly that when it was given an unusual nickname. In December 1953, the US President Dwight D. Eisenhower gave a speech advocating the use of nuclear power for peaceful purposes. This “Atoms for Peace” speech was significant for the scientific community, as it brought nuclear research into the public domain, and NGC 7252, which has a superficial resemblance to an atomic nucleus surrounded by the loops of electronic orbits, was dubbed the Atoms for Peace galaxy in honour of this.

spectacular new image from Hubble Space Telescope NASA This spectacular new image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope of the group of galaxies called Stephan's Quintet has provided a detailed view of one of the most exciting star forming regions in the local Universe. Stephan's Quintet is a favored object for amateur astronomers and has earned a reputation as a challenging target for good hobby Hubble Space Telescope. The quintet is a prototype of a class of objects known as compact groups of galaxies and has been studied intensively for decades. This NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image is a close-up view of the central part of Stephan's Quintet, giving a magnificent view of a gigantic cosmic collision.
