  • Just WOW! 💫 Via @astronomusofficial This scientific movie shows simulations of equal-mass galaxies colliding. 🔭✨ #Astronomus There are disks (with gas+stellar disks, bulges, dark matter halos, and black holes) constructed to resemble different observed galaxies. The colours approximate what would be perceived by the human eye. Regions containing stars are bright blue, while dust absorbtion causes areas to be darkened and reddened. The duration of the siulation is 3 billion yrs. . 🎥 Movie was made by Patrik Jonsson, Greg Novak, and Joel Primack for an NSF Visualization Challenge. . . #astronomy #space #galaxies #science #astrophysics #cosmology #universe #cosmos #lookup #nightsky #physics #stars

  • This is why I stargaze and look up at the stars......... #Repost @nasahubble (@get_repost) ・・・ At first glance, it may seem as though this image was taken through a faulty lens, but the mind-bending distortions visible in this impressive image taken with Hubble’s Wide Field Camera 3 are actually caused by a cosmic phenomenon. The bright galaxies at the center of the frame belong to the galaxy cluster SDSS J1336-0331. The enormous gravitational influence of the cluster warps the very shape and fabric of its environment (the space-time around it), creating an effect known as strong gravitational lensing. Through this effect the light from background galaxies in the line of sight to the observer is bent into fantastic arcs. This effect is very useful for studying distant background galaxies. Moreover, SDSS J1336-0331 is interesting in itself: the cluster was part of a study of star formation within Brightest Cluster Galaxies (BCGs — the brightest galaxies within their host clusters). Typically located in the centers of their clusters, BCGs are among the most massive and luminous galaxies in the universe. They are generally huge elliptical galaxies and are likely to host active galactic nuclei in their cores. The study found evidence to suggest that BCGs are fueled by cold gas from the galaxy. It also showed that star formation in older BCGs no longer significantly contributes to the galaxy’s growth; instead, the stellar growth occurs through mergers, the collision of two galaxies. Violent, gas-rich major mergers can trigger intense bursts of star formation in their aftermath.
