Something Just Came Out of a Black Hole for the First Time Ever

You don’t have to know a whole lot about science to know that black holes typically suck things in, not spew things out. But NASA just spotted something mighty strange at the supermassive black hole Markarian 335.

Rare Rainbow phenomena known as Circumhorizontal Arc
 
Parma, Italy…
Tuesday, June 21, 2016 at noon, at 12h30 exactly.
In my company, the heat, some thin clouds (Cirrus) then… these 2 rainbows appears!!! Curved toward the Sun and just for a few minutes...
These are Circumhorizontal Arc, which is very rare in Europe!!!
So here they are just for you... ;-)

Atmosphere of ancient Mars had high levels of oxygen: NASA http://spacechecker.blogspot.com/2016/06/atmosphere-of-ancient-mars-had-high.html
NASA draws parallel between ancient mars and the Earth in terms of presence of oxygen and suggested that the atmosphere of the red planet had high levels of oxygen than it has now. This research was done on the basis of chemicals found in Martian rocks by NASA's curiosity Mars rover.

Astronomers have identified a family of incredible galaxies that could shed further light on the transformation of the early Universe known as the ‘epoch of reionisation’. Dr David Sobral of Lancaster University will present their results on Monday 27 June at the National Astronomy Meeting in Nottingham.

About 150 million years after the Big Bang, some 13 billion years ago, the Universe was completely opaque to high energy ultraviolet light, with neutral hydrogen gas blocking its passage. Astronomers have long realised that this situation ended in the so-called ‘epoch of reionisation’, where ultraviolet light from the earliest stars broke open neutral hydrogen atoms, and could start to travel freely through the cosmos. This reionisation period marks a key transition between the relatively simple early cosmos, with normal matter made up of hydrogen and helium, and the universe as we see it today: transparent on large scales and filled with heavier elements.
The Royal Astronomical Society, encourages and promotes the study of astronomy, solar-system science, geophysics and closely related branches of science. The RAS organizes scientific meetings in Burlington House, its London HQ, and throughout the country, publishes international research and review journals, recognizes outstanding achievements by the award of medals and prizes, maintains an extensive library, supports education through grants and...

Alien or rock formation? UFO hunters claim extraterrestrial presence on Mars! - See pic http://spacechecker.blogspot.com/2016/06/alien-or-rock-formation-ufo-hunters.html
The search for extraterrestrial life has been going on for years and those involved in alien hunting or UFO hunting have on many occasions, come close enough to provide evidence justifying their presence. UFO hunters and alien investigators alike love to go into the minute details of images ...

International Space Station.

The ISS serves as a microgravity and  Space environment research laboratory in which crew members conduct experiments in biology, human biology, physic, astronomy, meteorology, and The other fields.  station is suited for the testing of spacecraft systems and equipment required for missions to the Moon and Mars. The ISS,  maintains an orbit with an altitude of between 330 and 435 km (205 and 270 mi) by means of reboost manoeuvres using the engines of the  Zevzda module, or visiting spacecraft. It completes 15.54 orbits per day.

Discovery of 'wind nebula' opens new window into magnetar http://spacechecker.blogspot.com/2016/06/discovery-of-nebula-opens-new-window.html
In a first, astronomers have discovered a vast cloud of high-energy particles called a wind nebula around a rare ultra-magnetic neutron star, or magnetar. The find offers a unique window into the properties, environment and outburst history of magnetars, which are the strongest magnets in the ...

The red blotch-like celestial objects at the centers of these 7 panels are 7 galaxies from 13.1 billion years ago discovered by the Subaru telescope. The galaxies are a kind known as Lyman α Emitters, abbreviated as LAE below. The galaxies shown here include the most distant object ever discovered by the Subaru Telescope. These are the fruits of installing a special NB101 filter, designed for hunting LAE galaxies, in Suprime-Cam and conducting a 106 hour observation plan, an extremely long time as Subaru Telescope observations go. This allowed us to survey the distant Universe (the Universe from 13.1 billion years ago) with an unprecedented high sensitivity.
