yourdailyuniverse Galaxy Evolution Tracking Animation.

How did the universe evolve from such a smooth beginning? To help understand, computational cosmologists and NASA produced the featured time-lapse animated video depicting a computer simulation of part of the universe. The 100-million light-year simulation starts about 20 million years after the Big Bang and runs until the present. After a smooth beginning, gravity causes clumps of matter to form into galaxies which immediately begin falling toward each other. Soon, many of them condense into long filaments while others violently merge into a huge and hot cluster of galaxies. Investigating of potential universe attributes in simulations like this have helped shape the engineering design the James Webb Space Telescope, currently scheduled for launch in late 2018.

machineguts Guys you have got to see this magic! I got this little beauty from @hippie_notions to use in one of my upcoming pieces! She made a perfect acorn out of this gorgeous amethyst point.

physics.in.the.universe M87 harbors a black hole 6 billion times more massive than our sun; around the black hole it is possible to observer a region known as the “event horizon.”
At the edge of a black hole, the gravitational force is so strong that it pulls in everything from its surroundings. However, not everything can cross the event horizon to squeeze into a black hole. The result is a “cosmic traffic jam” in which gas and dust build up, creating a flat pancake of matter known as an accretion disk. This disk of matter orbits the black hole at nearly the speed of light, feeding the black hole a steady diet of superheated material. Over time, this disk can cause the black hole to spin in the same direction as the orbiting material.
Note the speed of light: 299,792,458 m/s

ssogutcu Sirius ya da Akyıldız, Büyük Köpek Takımyıldızı’nda yer alan bir çift yıldız. Bu çift yıldızdan Türkçe’de Akyıldız ismiyle bilinen Sirius-A bileşeni (α CMa / α Canis Majoris/ Büyük Köpek Takımyıldızı’nın alpha yıldızı), görünür kadiri bakımından gökyüzündeki en parlak yıldız olup -1.47 görünür kadir derecesiyle, kendisine görünür kadiri bakımından en yakın olan Canopus’a oranla onun iki katı kadar parlaktır.

Located about 1,500 light years away in the constellation Orion is one of the Milky Way's most spectacular star forming regions: The Orion Nebula.

The Orion Nebula is perhaps the most famous nebula in the night sky. It's also the brightest and can even be seen with the naked eye. Just below the belt of Orion, it looks like a fuzzy star. However, with even a small telescope, the beauty of the Orion Nebula can be seen. With a diameter of about 30 light years, the Orion Nebula is a star forming region that is part of the much larger Orion Molecular Cloud Complex. Because of the active star formation taking place in Orion, it has been intensely studied for years. In fact, the Orion Nebula is estimated to contain around 2,000 young stars, and more are being formed. Yet this is not the only reason to study Orion. Many of the young stars have been observed to have protoplanetary disks in orbit around them. According to models of planet formation, it's in these disks where new planets are being formed, thus they are critical to not only understanding the evolution of other stars and solar systems, but of our solar system as well. Also, scientists have detected large numbers of brown dwarf stars. These small mass objects are considered to be failed stars, yet they are important to understanding star formation.

svennastorm 🤔Ring magnets of the kind found in loudspeakers have a central North pole with the opposite “South” pole actually being all points along the outer circumference. This perfectly demonstrates the magnetism of our flat Earth, whereas the alleged source of magnetism in the ball-Earth model is emitted from a hypothetical molten magnetic core in the center of the ball which they claim conveniently causes both poles to constantly move thus evading independent verification at their two “ceremonial poles.” In reality the deepest drilling operation in history, the Russian Kola Ultradeep, managed to get only 8 miles down, so the entire ball-Earth model taught in schools showing a crust, outer-mantle, inner-mantle, outer-core and inner-core layers are all purely speculation as we have never penetrated through beyond the crust. #Repost @flatearthtshirtco with @repostapp.
