  • Two Titans Prepare to Crash

    Knowing that Galaxies are empty space scientists Jay Anderson and Roeland van der Marel show how they have used Hubble observations to predict the future of the Andromeda Galaxy and the Milky Way.Projecting the motion of Andromeda’s stars over the next 8 billion years, the astronomers now know the path that galaxy is taking through space. And it’s heading straight for us!Using Hubble’s sharp images they have simulated what will happen in around 8 billion years.Andromeda Galaxy and the Milky […]

  • Monster Saturn Storm

    Saturn’s Record-Setting Storm & Infrared Hotspots in a Monster Saturn Storm. In 2010 Saturn’s Great White Spot storm set a new record for the largest atmospheric temperature change ever detected during a storm on the ringed planet. Using NASA’s Cassini spacecraft, researchers spotted a massive belch of energy that sent temperatures soaring to an unprecedented 150 degrees Fahrenheit above normal in Saturn’s stratosphere, accompanied by an enormous release of ethylene gas. Now the original video has been updated with a […]

  • Dead Exoplanet Revived!

    Dead Exoplanet Revived!

    In 2008, Hubble astronomers announced the detection of a giant planet around the bright star Fomalhaut.Earlier this year astronomers failed to detect heat from this Exoplanet and declared it “dead”.Now, a new Study Brings the Exoplanet ‘Back from the Dead’ On the 25th of October Nasa announced: A second look at data from NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope is reanimating the claim that the nearby star Fomalhaut hosts a massive exoplanet. The study suggests that the planet, named Fomalhaut b, is […]

  • Clashing Winds of a Colossal Binary

    X-ray Satellites Monitor the Clashing Winds of a Colossal Binary Cygnus OB2 is considered one of the best behaved massive stars.A study of Cygnus OB2 and OB2#9 has given scientists the answers to some questions about Binary stars. O-type stars are among the most massive and hottest known, pounding their surroundings with intense ultraviolet light and powerful outflows called stellar winds. NASA’s Swift and ESA’s XMM-Newton X-ray observatories took part in a  campaign to monitor the interaction of two O […]

  • A Dramatic Change On A Faraway Planet

    A Dramatic Change On A Faraway Planet

    Here we have  the latest discovery about HD 189733b, an exoplanet that has been repeatedly studied by Hubble. It is very interesting to actually see these changes take place on a planet so far from us.We knoe that Hearth changes with every disaster recorded,be it earthquake,sunami,fire,floods and other natural disasters. Every time one of this events takes place we not only have human life at risk,but we can also see the face of the Earth changing. We tend not to […]

  • Cosmic Dark Matter Web

    Cosmic Dark Matter Web

    A short history of the Universe from its beginnings to today. Astronomers and scientists know that 90% of the Universe is dark matter, therefore impossible to penetrate and see whats behind it. Recent discoveries by Hubble Space Telescope has helped scientists to map the distribution of dark matter in the Galaxy cluster MACS-J0717. This discovery will undoubtedly lead to many others. Hope you enjoy today’s short video. Enjoy and share….. Here is a fun car sticker for you…. got astronomy? […]

  • Seeing Sharp-Europe to the Stars-Part 3

    This is the third chapter of the movie Europe to the Stars ESO’s First 50 Years of Exploring the Southern Sky. It presents ESO’s flagship facility: the Very Large Telescope (VLT). In this episode we discover the state-of-the-art technology behind this telescope, which has provided astronomers with an unequaled view of the Universe. ESO created an Astronomer’s paradise in the form of La Residentia-an underground residential facility that,s supposed to be like a resort.Regardless of the living accommodations, the discoveries […]

  • Looking Up-Europe To The Stars Part Two

    This is the second chapter of the movie “— ESO’s First 50 Years of Exploring the Southern Sky”.  In it we look at how, over the past fifty years, ESO has helped to unravel some of the mysteries of the Universe in which we live. Astronomers were in need of more powerful tools to observe the sky and ESO provided them. A new generation of revolutionary ground-based telescopes has offered astronomers a front-row seat to study the wonders of the […]
