    Treasure Trove Of Observations

    Building a treasure trove of observations Having circled the Earth for over two decades, Hubble has been responsible for many fascinating scientific discoveries. After receiving its last service in 2009 and the installation of new instruments, the telescope is now at the height of its powers. As the observatory has matured, attention has turned to some ambitious projects on a scale that would not have even been considered a few years ago. Between them, these projects could help answer some […]

  • The Tarantula Nebula

    The Tarantula Nebula

    The Large Magellanic Cloud, or LMC, is a small companion galaxy of our own Milky Way. It can be seen with the naked eye, as a faint grey blotch in the constellation of Dorado. It’s a favorite hunting ground for astronomers and it has been studied by many telescopes. Its most dramatic feature is the Tarantula Nebula, a bright region of glowing gas and energetic star formation. Hubble has produced a close-up view of this nebula, which reveals this dynamic […]

  • Beyond Einstein: Part II

    Continuing from the previous video we explore the Black Holes. What happens to matter and energy as it moves closer to a black hole? Here is where Einstein’s theory about gravity comes in handy as it is used to learn more.We are learning about Black Holes at an alarming rate. There is so much information available now that it takes a long time to sift truough it and for scientists to correlate what is useful at this time and what […]

  • Beyond Einstein: Part I

    One hundred years ago a visionary made predictions so profound that changed the way we live forever. Albert Einstein’s theories are among humanity’s greatest achievements. They sparked the scientific revolution of the 20th Century. In his attempts to understand how space, time and matter are connected, Einstein and his successors made three predictions… First, that space is expanding from a Big Bang. Second, that black holes exist and third, that there is some kind of energy pulling the universe apart. […]

  • Interstellar Space

    This video is part of a series released by NASA that explain winds in the Solar System and its effects. It is a rather technical video, but easy to understand.Here is the article posted by NASA: A great magnetic bubble surrounds the solar system as it cruises through the galaxy. The sun pumps the inside of the bubble full of solar particles that stream out to the edge until they collide with the material that fills the rest of the […]

  • Earth’s Ultra-High Super Winds

    High in the sky, 60 to 65 miles above Earth’s surface, winds rush through a little understood region of Earth’s atmosphere at speeds of 200 to 300 miles per hour.The ATREX studies will help to determine how these winds can affect the communications systems on our planet, how the current encircling Earth works and if the winds interfere with satellite communications. Enjoy and share…… Here are some gifts  ideas for you!
