  • For the first time, NASA scientists have detected light tied to a gravitational-wave event, thanks to two merging neutron stars in the galaxy NGC 4993, located about 130 million light-years from Earth in the constellation Hydra. This animation captures phenomena observed over the course of nine days following the neutron star merger known as GW170817. They include gravitational waves (pale arcs), a near-light-speed jet that produced gamma rays (magenta), expanding debris from a kilonova that produced ultraviolet (violet), optical and infrared (blue-white to red) emission, and, once the jet directed toward us expanded into our view from Earth, X-rays (blue).

  • 🤔Вывод о том, что человек состоит на 97% из вещества, созданного в недрах звезд, был получен на основе анализа 150 тысяч светил нашей Галактики🌌 В состав основных химических элементов для создания жизни на Земле входят: 🌍углерод (C) 🌎водород (H) 🌏азот (N) 🌍кислород (O) 🌎фосфор (P) 🌏сера (S). Ученые даже придумали специальную аббревиатуру – CHNOPS. Большая часть самых важных химических элементов в изобилии имеются в центре нашей Галактики, причём чем ближе к её центру, тем больше их там можно обнаружить. Это обусловлено тем, что там находятся более старые светила, которые в ходе своей эволюции наработали больше тяжелых элементов, чем более молодые звезды внешних частей Галактики🌟 Так что, фразу из песни "Все люди как люди, а я - Суперзвезда" можно отнести ко всем людям в частности, в каждом есть часть Звезды🌟 (звездной пыли, после взрыва звезды), все мы - Суперзвезды😁 Кого-то это может расстроить, что человек - это всего лишь пылинка☹ но меня это вдохновляет😲Мы часть чего-то большего, завораживающего, необыкновенно красивого...🌌 #astronomy #science #астрономия #суперзвезда #наука #звезда #superstar #star #milkyway #galaxy #мысливслух #universe__says

  • Alcune idee sono talmente grandi, che il loro eco non si è ancora esaurito del tutto. Per chi ha il coraggio, la perseveranza, la creatività dalla propria parte, la luna non è altro che un limite. 20 Luglio 1969 | Allunaggio Apollo 11

  • تعرفون إحدى أمنياتي في الحياة شو؟ إني أرى جميع الاضاءات في العالم تغلق(فترة مؤقتة)، وكل العالم يشاهد مجرتنا درب التبانة بدون تلوث ضوئي. في أكثر الاحيان أمشي مسافات طويلة في الظلام لاشاهد هذا المنظر الي هو صدق كانه خيال. صورت هذي الصورة في #عمان وسط الجبال ومستحيل أنسى عندما أجتمع الضباب مع المجرة، سبحان الذي أتقن كل شي خلقه. You know what is one of my wishes? To see all the lights in the world closed (temporarily) for the world to see our galaxy without light pollution. Most of the time I hike long distances in the dark to see this dreamy view. I took this one in #oman between the mountains; ill never forget how mist combined with the #milkyway; God perfects everything he created. #milkyway #milkywaychasers #nightskyphotography #gulf #uae #juniper #galaxy #astroworld #astrophotography #astronomy #stars #تصويري📷

  • "Sometimes when I travel I plan every little detail, but sometimes I don't plan anything at all, not even a place to sleep. I just book a flight and go. I find that is where the memories are truly made and that's exactly what happened for our last 5 days in Hawaii. So we set up a tent on the North Shore and were gifted with a clear night sky. I set an alarm for 2am when the moon set below the earth. As I opened my eyes it was as if I was covered in stardust. The milky way stretched over my head and stars blanketed the earth."

  • butterfly nebula composite in visible and infrared Data credfts- Nasa/ Esa Hla Processing - Utkarsh mishra ,Bipradeep Saha We both collaborated on this project Composition was done by me software- Ps, fits lib Hello friends i hope you are having a good day today i managed to download this data from Hubble legacy and gave my attempt on this.. thanks for taking a moment to look and it clear skies ,Utkarsh mishra here are some facts about this nebula NGC 6302, also known as the Bug Nebula or Butterfly Nebula, is a bipolar planetary nebula in the constellation Scorpius. The structure in the nebula is among the most complex ever observed in planetary nebulae. Due to its composition, when observed with a telescope, its shape reminds many of a butterfly. Continue reading for five things you may not have known about this nebula. As it is included in the New General Catalogue, this object has been known since at least 1888. The earliest known study of NGC 6302 is by Edward Emerson Barnard, who drew and described it in 1907. Since then it has been the focus of many works and displays many interesting characteristics worthy of study. Interest in recent years has shifted from discussions over the excitation method in the nebula (shock-excitation or photo-ionisation) to the properties of the large dust component. #nasa #universe #astrophotography #astronomy #space #nebula #photography #art #nightsky #physics #india #astrophysics #talent #colors #butterfly

  • #Repost @neil.degrasse ・・・ Swipe to see more. "Many adults are put off when youngsters pose scientific questions. Children ask why the sun is yellow, or what a dream is, or how deep you can dig a hole, or when is the world’s birthday, or why we have toes. Too many teachers and parents answer with irritation or ridicule, or quickly move on to something else. Why adults should pretend to omniscience before a five-year-old, I can’t for the life of me understand. What’s wrong with admitting that you don’t know? Children soon recognize that somehow this kind of question annoys many adults. A few more experiences like this, and another child has been lost to science. There are many better responses. If we have an idea of the answer, we could try to explain. If we don’t, we could go to the encyclopedia or the library. Or we might say to the child: “I don’t know the answer. Maybe no one knows. Maybe when you grow up, you’ll be the first to find out.” — Carl Sagan #CarlSagan #Science #education #school #curiosity #astronomy #space #neildegrassetyson #Repost @saganism

  • The Feathered Serpent God of Ancient MesoAmerica dates back as early as 1800 years ago hear at the Pre-Classic city of Teotihuacan. It was also referenced by the Maya during the Classic period as Kukulkan, and even 1200 years later in the Post-Classic period of the Aztecs, which referred to it as Quetzalcoatl. It is historically unclear whether these are all the same "God" or different "God's" for each civilization. Some theorists have even gone as far as stating that Thoth from Pre-Dynastic Egypt could be this same feathered "God" who brings knowledge. Mythology/History states that this Feathered Serpent came from the sky in a flash of light, it would shake the ground and blow the trees when it would visit. It was said a man would come from the mouth of the Serpent, and this man brought the knowledge of astronomy, calendar making, agriculture, mathematics, etc: So, once again, are we dealing with symbology in form of modern day religion? Or did this Serpent God physically decend from the sky and bring them mysterious knowledge we still do not fully understand today nearly 1500 years later?
