  • First Stars and Galaxies

    First Stars and Galaxies

    Tony Darnell talks about the first stars and galaxies. Using modern technologies available today we have massive amount of data. We are getting new information every minute of every day, and still there is a gap that needs to be filled almost a billion years later. The James Webb Space Telescope will help close that gap by looking for the first stars in the infrared. Enjoy and share… Comets, Meteors, and Asteroids Old Price: $6.99 Price: $0.79

  • How Galaxies Form

    How Galaxies Form

    This high-tech computer simulation of galactic evolution could be named”Love Nebula”. See 13.7 billion years of cosmic evolution in under a minute. Galaxies are collections of stars, gas, dust and dark matter held together by gravity. Their appearance and composition are shaped over billions of years by interactions with groups of stars and other galaxies. Using supercomputers, scientists can look back in time and simulate how a galaxy may have formed in the early universe and grown into what we […]

  • Super-massive Black Hole at the Center of the Galaxy

    Super-massive Black Hole at the Center of the Galaxy

    This very short video is only a preview of the longer full 32-minute version of this Cosmic Journeys episode. Two teams of astronomers probe the galactic center for proof that a super-massive black holes lies within it. Is this monster of the milky way biding its time till its next outburst, or has it gone dormant? For the longer video you have to register with the website to view it. Enjoy and share….

  • Black Widow Pulsar Consumes its Mate!

    Black Widow Pulsar Consumes its Mate!

    We all know what a black widow looks like…but are you familiar with their Australian cousins the redbacks? The red back spider (Latrodectus hasseltii) is a species of venomous spider indigenous to Australia. It is a member of the cosmopolitan genus Latrodectus, the widow spiders.Females have a body length of about 10 millimetres (0.4 in), while the male is much smaller, being only 3–4 mm (0.12–0.16 in) long. Mainly nocturnal, the female redback lives in an untidy web in a […]

  • Youngest Galaxy And Oldest Star!

    Youngest Galaxy And Oldest Star!

    Trace Dominguez summarizes this big week in astronomy. Astronomers found both the oldest star we’ve ever seen, and also the youngest galaxy. Both were formed just after the Big Bang occurred 13 billion years ago, and Trace is here to tell you what these two findings can teach us about the origins of everything! Enjoy and share…. Printed with special luminescent ink, 365 glow-in-the-dark moons let you track the phases of the moon throughout the year. Lunar 2014 Wall Calendar: A […]

  • Macro And Microlensing

    Macro And Microlensing

    This video shows the principle of macro and microlensing. In “macrolensing”, a galaxy plays the role of a cosmic magnifying glass or a natural telescope, an effect that was predicted by Albert Einstein as a consequence of his theory of general relativity. The light from a distant quasar is bent in its path and magnified by the gravitational field of the lensing galaxy. This proves very useful in astronomy as it allows us to observe distant objects that would otherwise […]

    Radio Galaxy Hercules-A

    A Multi-Wavelength View of Radio Galaxy Hercules-A This very short video shows spectacular jets powered by the gravitational energy of a super massive black hole in the core of the elliptical galaxy Hercules A illustrate the combined imaging power of two of astronomy’s cutting-edge tools, the Hubble Space Telescope’s Wide Field Camera 3, and the recently upgraded Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) radio telescope in New Mexico. Enjoy and share….

    Galaxies And Penguins

    This video explores the violent world of galactic mergers, as shown by the cosmic duo Arp 142 in a stunning new image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. Galaxies spend most of their life drifting through the cosmic expanse in isolation. But, every so often, two unfortunate galaxies stray a little too close to one another — as is the case with Arp 142. Showcased in a stunning new image from Hubble, these two galaxies uncannily resemble a penguin guarding […]

  • Compact Dwarf Galaxy

    Compact Dwarf Galaxy

    Two Minute Tour An Ultra-Compact Dwarf Galaxy With the help of Hubble and Chandra X-ray observatory astronomers may have discovered the densest galaxy in the nearby Universe. The galaxy, known as M60-UCD1, is located about 54 million light years from Earth. M60-UCD1 is packed with an extraordinary number of stars and this has led scientists to classify it as an “ultra-compact dwarf galaxy. This means that this galaxy is smaller and has more stars than just a regular dwarf galaxy. […]
