Witch's Broom Nebula: The Witch's Broom Nebula is also part of the famous Veil Nebula complex, this being the western portion. The entire complex is the remnant of a powerful supernova explosion which occurred thousands of years ago.
The Guardian On 'The Grand Design': How Come Stephen Hawking Wrote The Same Book Again?
Australian astronomers find the oldest Star: billion years old, making it the most ancient star seen. It lies in our own galaxy, the Milky Way, at a distance of around light years from Earth. story dated: 10 Feb 2014
The pulsar, a. the "Black Widow," is moving through the galaxy at a speed of almost a million kilometers per hour. A bow shock wave due to this motion is visible to optical telescopes, shown in this image as the.
This artist's concept illustrates a supermassive black hole with millions to billions times the mass of our sun. Supermassive black holes are enormously dense objects buried at the hearts of galaxies. Image by NASA/JPL-Caltech
And you thought your day was busy? we-are-star-stuff: A map of our galaxy the Milky Way, showing pulsars (red), planetary nebulae (blue), globular clusters (yellow), and the orbits of several stars. And yet our galaxy is a tiny place.
the aftermath of a supernova explosion in the LMC. A new long observation from NASA's Chandra shown in blue, reveals evidence for a bullet-shaped object being blown out of a debris field left over from an exploded star
Intergalactic debris and far-flung atoms, shards of carbon nanomatter rounded up by gravity to circle the sun. As atoms pass through an eternal revolving door of possible form, energy and mass dance in fluid relationship.
A large hot molecular cloud around a very young star was discovered by ALMA. This hot cloud is about ten times larger than those found around typical solar-mass baby stars, which indicates that the star formation process has more diversi…
Molecular Cloud Barnard 68 Image Credit: FORS Team, VLT Antu, ESO Explanation: Where did all the stars go? What used to be considered a hole in the sky is now known to astronomers as a dark molecular cloud.
