Confirmed Earth-sized exoplanet in habitable zone

The +NASA Kepler team just announced the confirmed existence of an Earth-sized planet orbiting in the habitable zone of its host star. 

This planet is about 500 light years away from our solar system in the constellation Cygnus the swan. It's orbiting an M-dwarf star, also known as a red dwarf, which are the most abundant known stars in our Milky Way galaxy.

The planet's orbit is about 130 days, compared to our 365 days, and since the star is much cooler than the Sun, receives about 1/3 of the solar radiation. The warmth of the planet is unknown, because that would depend on composition of its atmosphere, which has not been established at this point.

How a Black Hole Consumes a Star

This amazing footage (from +NASA - who else?) shows just how devastatingly powerful a #blackhole  truly is.

Shot over the course of 139 days, this visualization footage shows a supermassive black hole that is approximately 2.7 billion light years away from earth decimating a star. From +SPACE.com:

"In this visualization, some of the murdered star's debris falls into the void, but some is spun up and shot out at high velocities.Credit: NASA, S. Gezari (The Johns Hopkins University), and J. Guillochon (University of California, Santa Cruz)."

The arc of stardust that is flung out into the #cosmos  is unbelievable.

It's a #gif  like this that reminds us here at www.solarvps.com that #space  is not only mind boggingly big, but also mind-boggingly violent and treacherous, even for objects as massive as stars.

#cool   #science   #awesome  +Solar VPS
