Here's the gorgeous Cassiopeia A! A supernova remnant located 11,000 light-years away in our own Milky Way. It's one of the most well-studied supernova remnants that has mass ejecting at 4,000 km/s!

Scientists discover a link that indicates star formation is dictated by the mass of a black hole. Take a look at my new post where we'll find out what this means exactly and how the scientists were able to prove this amazing discovery!

We're getting closer to the end of 2017 and I think it's time to look back at what's happened in the world of astronomy. From gravitational waves to zombie stars going supernova more than once, there is no shortage of excitement. So go ahead and grab a nice cup of tea or coffee, prepare your brain for a journey through the cosmos, and enjoy my wrap up on 10 amazing discoveries that changed astronomy in 2017!

I've compiled an entire years' worth of astronomy stories with summaries and links to the proper source. So take a look and perhaps get through it in chunks since 2016 was an eventful year for astronomy :)

New article! "How Direct Fusion Drive (DFD) will Revolutionize Space Travel" This technology could cut travel time by half! We could get to Mars in just a few months.

This is a beautiful cosmic family portrait of what is known as the "*Sagittarius Sunflower*." What you are looking at are 3 distinct cosmic nebulae. On the left we have the famous M8 or "Lagoon Nebula," located about 4,400 light years from Earth. This nebula alone is about hundreds of light years across or about 1 quadrillion KM. To try and put that in perspective, if we travelled at 50 km/s (which we have before) it would take us 5 trillion hours or 26 million years!! And this is in our own Milky Way. We haven't even left our neighborhood!

On the bottom we have M20 or the "Trifid Nebula," located 5,200 light years from Earth. Finally on the right we have NGC 6559 located 5,000 light years away. This narrowband data records ionized hydrogen, oxygen, and sulfur atoms radiating at visible wavelengths.
