#VeilNebula   #Supernova   #2lightyears  

This is a photo of one of the best known supernova remnants captured by the Hubble Space Telescope called the Veil Nebula. This nebula is located in the constellation Cygnus 2,100 light-years away, and spans 110 light-years across. It is estimated that the supernova preceeding these observable remnants occured some 8,000 years ago.

This close up is a mosaic of 6 Hubble photos spanning about 2 light-years across. The bright regions in the nebula are the result of the fast moving blast waves from the supernova colliding into a wall of cooler, denser interstellar gas.

In the image, the red regions represent the glow of hydrogen, the green from sulfur, and the blue from oxygen.

totally agree +Trevor Marsh . i'm not sure i would even call interstellar science fiction. it was more of a drama that happened to take place in space... i mean... are we calling craptastic movies like Zathura science fiction also? maybe that's too far, but you get my point

Did you go see The Martian this weekend? If you did (and even if you didn't) here's my review. (Slight spoilers for those who may not have read the book!) 

Saw it? What did you think?
If you're a space fan and you've decided to hold off seeing The Martian on opening weekend until you know what to expect, I totally understand — I very rarely see films on opening weekends myself (...

Subsurface ice has been long suspected and probably since before Weir wrote his novel. I've no idea why he'd overlook that. Also the danger of solar flares, especially X-class solar flares. How many times have we seen (for example) Mars One's depiction of a Martian colony on the surface, unprotected? They'd need several metres of soil over those converted Orion capsules (or whatever they are) to protect them long-term from solar flares and cosmic rays, but here we go again in Weir's novel.

I don't object to any of these oversights in the interest of entertainment, but they should at least stop claiming the movie as a whole is "scientifically accurate" when they've clearly cherry-picked what is scientifically accurate and what is not. No, The Martian, as a whole, is not scientifically accurate.

               Man’s body contains much mechanism. Man’s body parts are useful to make the spare parts of machines. Sometimes our body is affected due to virus attack and change in climate we become sick and weak Hiccup is one among them.
              Hiccup   occurs due to thirst, change in climate and indigestion .At this time phemic nerve is activated. 
             We can get relief by drinking water. Non-availability of water, we can follow some mechanism to get relief. When the nerve is activated the air from the Esophagus should be halted to avoid hiccup. When the Esophagus is folded a little, the air is stopped there itself and no hiccup. By bending our head wherein the chin should touch our chest for 3 minutes and it would help folding the Esophagus.
By this method, the air is forced into the intestine. When we do this for 3 times, the air goes to the intestine and thereby halts the hiccup. We can get complete relief without any medicine or machine

Two scientists from Canada and Japan have won the 2015 Nobel Prize in Physics 2015 for opening "a new realm in particle physics," the Nobel Prize committee says. Working far apart, both Takaaki Kajita and Arthur B. McDonald showed how neutrinos shift identities like chameleons in space.

The revelation that neutrinos — the subatomic particles that are more numerous than any other in the universe except for particles of light — undergo a metamorphosis led to a second and shocking conclusion: that they have mass.

The next two weeks provide an excellent opportunity to spot the brightest asteroid visible from Earth. Vesta — one of the best-known objects in the solar system.

#Vesta   #Asteroid   #October   #DailySpaceNews  
In the first six years of the 19th century, astronomers discovered four new members of the solar system. All four were small objects between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. Initially, they were called planets, but by the mid-1800s, enough new objects had been found in this area that they were ...

This isn't my research, but their references are linked in the hyperlink. I'm in the process of reviewing it right now, but I have seen many things already in the video documentary and I know them to be valid.

There’s now a target date of 2030 for a manned mission to Mars. But how close are we, really, to becoming Martians?

Like any long-distance relationship, our love affair with Mars has had its ups and downs. The planet's red tint made it a distinctive – but ominous – nighttime presence to the ancients, who gazed at it with the naked eye. Later we got closer views through telescopes, but the planet still ...

+spencer garthwait my issue with the lack of a magnetosphere is that without one any freshly made atmosphere would be stripped away with the solar wind.
But question. Without a good material reason to be there, what good would Mars make as a base to stage interstellar travel? Wouldn't the asteroid belt or one of the jovian moons be better?

Some galaxies have extremely bright cores, suggesting that they contain a supermassive black hole that is pulling in matter at a prodigious rate. Astronomers call these “active galaxies,” and Hercules A is one of them. In visible light, Hercules A looks like a typical elliptical galaxy. In X-ray light, however, Chandra detects a giant cloud of multimillion-degree gas (purple). This gas has been heated by energy generated by the infall of matter into a black hole at the center of Hercules A that is over 1,000 times as massive as the one in the middle of the Milky Way. Radio data (blue) show jets of particles streaming away from the black hole. The jets span a length of almost one million light years.

Hubble 25 Rocks Cleveland!
I'll be speaking at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History on Thursday, October 15 at 8 PM, kicking off their 2015-2016 Frontiers of Astronomy season. Admission is free, and, if the sky is clear, the Ralph Mueller Observatory will be open afterward. Join me for a celestial silver celebration of the greatest telescope in history!
Frontiers of Astronomy is a free lecture series that offers those with an interest in astronomy the chance to learn about the latest research in the field. Presentations begin at 8 pm in Murch Auditorium. No tickets or reservations are required. Limited parking is available in the Museum lot for ...

Really interesting: considering making elements is principally what stars do, aside from transmitting energy to drive the chemistry of planets, I think it's interesting to calculate the element yield of galaxies. Anyway so nice of you to indulge my idea; thanks again; if you get to lecture at Hayden Planetsrium I will try to come.

Someday we'll be able to scale Mar's mountains.

NASA's Mars rover Curiosity captured this image, which looks toward the higher regions of the 3.4-mile-high (5.5 kilometers) Mount Sharp, on Sept. 9, 2015.
