BREAKING NEWS!! NASA scientists have detected light tied to a gravitational-wave event. Two merging neutron stars about 130 million light-years from Earth collided giving off a short gamma-ray burst. LIGO detected gravitational waves from it and encouraged astronomers to look for the aftermath of the explosion. Multiple space & ground-based telescopes caught first light from the gravitational-wave event, known as the kilnova. This optical and infrared light revealed the motion and chemical composition of the expanding debris.This discovery represents the beginning of a new era in astrophysics! -

La superficie della Russia è più estesa di quella di Plutone. (17.100.000 km² contro i 16.600.000 km² dell’ormai ex pianeta).

Star Cluster NGC 362 from #Hubble 
Image Credit: Hubble WFC3, #NASA , ESA, J. Heyl, I. Caiazzo, & Javiera Parada (UBC)

Explanation: If our Sun were near the center of NGC 362, the #night #sky would #glow like a jewel box of #bright #stars. Hundreds of stars would glow brighter than Sirius, and in many different #colors. Although these stars could become part of breathtaking #constellations and intricate folklore, it would be difficult for #planetary inhabitants there to see -- and hence understand -- the greater #universe beyond.NGC 362 is one of only about 170 globular #clusters of stars that exist in our #MilkyWay #Galaxy. This star cluster is one of the younger #globulars, forming likely well after our Galaxy. NGC 362 can be found with the unaided eye nearly in front of theSmall Magellanic Cloud, and angularly close to the second brightest globular cluster known, 47 Tucanae. The featured image was taken with the Hubble Space Telescope to help better understand how massive stars end up near the center of some globular clusters.

A well-deserved award for such an accomplished man. Marine Corps pilot who flew over 100 missions in Vietnam, flew four shuttle missions, including the one that launched Hubble, and was Administrator of NASA for eight years.

This is exactly how Mike’s Cider donuts are formed.
But seriously this is awesome! @nasa on gravitational wave discovery: ・・・
Round and round they go - then BOOM! This animation begins with the final moments of two neutron stars (the super-dense cores of exploded massive stars), whirling around each other in a galaxy 130 million light-years away. Gravitational waves (rippling disturbance in space-time, shown here as pale arcs) bleed away orbital energy, causing the stars to move closer together and merge.
As the stars collide, this explosive event emits light across a series of different wavelengths - first gamma rays (magenta), then ultraviolet (violet), then visible and infrared (blue-white to red) and once the jet directed toward us expanded into our view from Earth, X-rays (blue). Our Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope witnessed this event on August 17, 2017 and we watched it unfold over multiple days with a variety of other telescopes, including the Swift spacecraft, the Hubble Space Telescope (@NASAHubble), the Spitzer Space Telescope, our Chandra X-Ray Observatory (@NASAChandraXray) and our NuSTAR mission. The detectors at the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) received a gravitational wave signal just 1.7 seconds before the first light was seen by Fermi, making this the first event observed in both light and gravitational waves.

U Camelopardalis, ou U Cam é uma estrela no final da sua vida. Ela começa a ficar sem combustível, instável, ele é ejetado para o espaço um envelope tênue de gás.

U Camelopardalis, or U Cam is a star at the end of his life. It begins to run out of fuel, unstable, it ejects into space a faint gas envelope.  #astronomy #nasa #hubble #stars #space #universe #telescope

NGC 6751, the Bright Eye Nebula, a planetary nebula that is about 6,500 light-years away from Earth. They are fluorescent gas spheres expelled by a central star at the end of its life, resembling a celestial eye.
