  • The Riddle of the Missing Stars

    The Riddle of the Missing Stars

    Hubble has done it again!!!!!!! It has provided us with a new riddle to be studied and deciphered. This will surely keep scientists busy for awhile. Hubble observations reveal that they are even more mysterious than previously thought.New observations of four globular clusters in the Fornax dwarf galaxy have called into question one of the leading theories about how these clusters form. In this episode we explain the mystery behind these objects and how it is deepened by these new […]

  • Ocean World?

    Ocean World?

    Just another mystery to ponder or reality? According to data collected so far this is actually reality right now. Scientists believe there is an ocean hidden beneath the surface of Jupiter’s moon Europa. NASA-JPL astrobiologist Kevin Hand explains why scientists are so excited about the potential of this ice-covered world to answer one of humanity’s most profound questions.

  • Bennu’s Journey

    Bennu’s Journey

    Born from the rubble of a violent collision, hurled through space for millions of years and dismembered by the gravity of planets, asteroid Bennu had a tough life in a rough neighborhood: the early solar system. “We are going to Bennu because we want to know what it has witnessed over the course of its evolution,” said Edward Beshore of the University of Arizona. Bennu’s Journey, is a new animation created at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, […]

  • A Decade of Game Changing Astrophysics

    A Decade of Game Changing Astrophysics

    A longer than usual video, but really worth watching. Swift isn’t just a name, it’s a core capability, a part of the spacecraft’s DNA. Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) typically last less than a minute and Swift detects one event about twice a week. Once Swift observes a GRB, it automatically determines the blast’s location, broadcasts the position to the astronomical community, and then turns toward the site to investigate with its own sensitive telescopes. Over the past decade, NASA’s Swift Gamma-ray […]

  • The Mysterious Holes in the Atmosphere on Venus

    The Mysterious Holes in the Atmosphere on Venus

    The European Space Agency’s Venus Express mission saw something it could not explain. It appeared that there were holes on the night side of Venus’ ionosphere. Researchers at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center investigated these mysterious holes, and found evidence that the sun’s magnetic field lines may be penetrating through the planet. Enjoy and share…..

    The expanding Universe

    The illustration, akin to using an expanding balloon as an analogy for the expanding Universe, is used in the Hubblecast to highlight when these 2D analogies work, and when they break down. This animation, from Hubblecast 79, illustrates a two-dimensional analogy for the expansion of space Enjoy and share…….. Celestron 127EQ PowerSeeker Telescope Old Price: $169.95 Price: $129.36
