Martians also played quidditch, and this is a monument to the snitch.

Happy Birthday, Opportunity! Welcome to the teens.

(Give or take a few days). Of course, its Mars birthday is well in the future, since Mars sols and Earth days are not exactly equal, and even then a lot more of them are needed for a Mars year (668 to be precise).

जन्मदिन मुबारक, ऑपर्ट्यूनिटी! किशोरावस्था में स्वागत.

(कुछ दिन इधर-उधर हो सकते हैं) . बेशक, उसका मंगल निवासीय जन्मदिन तो बहुत दूर है, क्योंकि मंगल के दिन (जिन्हें सोल कहते हैं) पृथ्वी के दिनों से लम्बे हैं, और ऊपर से मंगल के साल पूरा करने के लिए और भी सोल चाहिए (विस्तार से, 668).

Opportunity landed on Mars 12 years ago this week.
NASA's Opportunity Mars rover just keeps rolling along, a dozen years after touching down on the Red Planet.

Once in a while, we need to turn our deep space instruments back on the home planet. That not only gives us cool observations, it also gives a baseline to understand what those instruments are picking up. This is +European Space Agency, ESA 's Integral space observatory, that measures X-rays.

Auroras not only give beautiful sky shows, but also generate X-rays as the charged solar wind decelerates along the magnetic lines of force around Earth.

Integral normally uses the Earth to block X-rays while studying black holes, supernovas and neutron stars. However, you can never tell when auroras will start up. This one ruined the planned observations but allowed a whole different set of unplanned observations!

अंतरिक्ष | पृथ्वी

कभी-कभी हमें अपने गहन अंतरिक्ष उपकरणों को घर की तरफ़ मोड़ना चाहिए. इससे न केवल अजूबे नज़र आते हैं, पर उपकरणों द्वारा  किए अवलोकनों के लिए एक आधारभूत भी साबित होता है. पेष है यूरोपीय अंतरिक्ष एजेंसी, ईएसए के 'इंटीग्रल' अंतरिक्ष वेधशाला.

ध्रुवीय ज्योति सुंदर आकाश शो देती है, पर यह  एक्स-रे भी उत्पन्न करती है, जब सौर वायु के आवेशित अणुओें का पृथ्वी की चुंबकीय रेखाओं में मन्दन होता है.

इंटीग्रल सामान्य रूप से ब्लैक होल, सुपरनोवा और न्यूट्रॉन तारे जाँचता है, जिसके लिए वह एक्स-किरणों को ब्लॉक करने के लिए पृथ्वी का उपयोग करता है. ध्रुवीय ज्योति कब शुरू होगी, इसका अंदाज़ लगाना मुश्किल है, और इसने  सुनियोजित अवलोकनों को बर्बाद कर दिया लेकिन अनियोजित अवलोकनों की एक पूरी तरह से अलग सेट का मौका दिया.

Thanks for participating in the last poll. I realise I didn't phrase the questions very well.

So here's another poll.

Just in case you have nothing better to do than answering my polls. :D

The question is:
What do you like in my posts and reshares on Space?

In France under Sarkozy a law was introduced to forbid dwarf-throwing. I guess this would apply to woman-throwing too.

This awesome and gorgeous animation gives an idea of the nebula, but bear in mind that this is an artist's impression. Do not make me die laughing by asking who took the video.

Rotating Gas Cloud

An excerpt from an article by Phil Plait:

http://www.slate.com/articles/health_and_science/bad_astronomy/2012/12/best_astronomy_images_2012_see_the_most_beautiful_images_of_the_universe.html

IC1396 is a huge cloud of gas and dust, a star-forming factory 100 light years across. Massive, hot, young stars in the center have blown an enormous cavity in the center of the nebula, their fierce stellar winds and blasting ultraviolet light eating the cloud away from the inside out.

J-P Metsävainio is a Finnish astrophotographer who took several images of this sprawling cloud, broke them up into layers, made a computer surface model of the structure, then remapped it all into different frames seen from different angles. The finished product is this jaw-dropping three-dimensional animation. I’ll note this is an approximation to the real structure of the nebula, an educated guess. But it gives an incredible feel to the object and a real sense of what it must really be like.

IC 1396 is a stunning emission nebula that mixes glowing cosmic gas and dark dust clouds in the high and far off constellation of Cepheus.
Among the intriguing dark shapes within IC 1396, the winding Elephant's Trunk nebula lies just below center

Our Galaxy's Magnetic Field from Planck

What does the magnetic field of our Galaxy look like?

It has long been known that a modest magnetic field pervades our Milky Way Galaxy because it is seen to align small dust grains that scatter background light.
Only recently, however, has the Sun-orbiting Planck satellite made a high-resolution map of this field. Color coded, the 30-degree wide map confirms, among other things, that the Galaxy's interstellar magnetism is strongest in the central disk. 
The revolution of charged gas around the Galactic center creates this magnetism, and it is hypothesized that viewed from the top, the Milky Way's magnetic field would appear as a spiral swirling out from the center.

What caused many of the details in this and similar Planck maps -- and how magnetism in general affected our Galaxy's evolution -- will likely remain topics of research for years to come.
