Here the +Trey Ratcliff #LAPhotowalk started. You might see that huge group starting to form under the palm trees. Normally I shot from inside the group, but since everyone moves, that was a typical stitching nightmare: resulting in hours of photoshop work. Not this time, I loved the view to the Pacific from the staircase more.
ENJOY

A Cosmic Megamaser in IRAS 16399-0937

This image, made up of observations from two of Hubble’s instruments - the Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) and the Near Infrared Camera and Multi-Object Spectrometer (NICMOS) in the infrared and optical parts of the spectrum-, refers to the galaxy IRAS 16399-0937, also known as LEDA 58817 and 2MASX J16424018-0943192.

Located in the equatorial constellation Ophiuchus, approximately 370 million light-years from Earth, it has a far more exciting classification than most — it acts as a giant maser (or megamaser), i.e. an astronomical maser emitting microwaves (rather than visible light) with an intensity about a hundred million times greater than that of astronomical masers found in galaxies like our Milky Way.

...but, what is a MASER?

MASER stands for Microwave Amplification by Stimulation Emission of Radiation. A LASER is a MASER that works with higher frequency photons in the ultraviolet or visible light spectrum (photons are bundles of electromagnetic energy commonly thought of as "rays of light" which travel in oscillating waves of various wavelengths) .

Masers are found throughout the Universe, wherever molecular clouds of dust amplify any microwave radiation that passes through, enhancing and focussing the amount that's emitted on the other side.

NICMOS’s sensitivity, resolution, and field of view gave astronomers the unique opportunity to observe the structure of IRAS 16399-0937 in detail.

They found that the galaxy hosts a double nucleus: the galaxy’s core is thought to be formed of two separate cores in the process of merging.

The two components, named IRAS 16399N and IRAS 16399S for the northern and southern parts respectively, sit over 11,000 light-years apart. However, they are both buried deep within the same swirl of cosmic gas and dust and are interacting, giving the galaxy its peculiar structure.

You can see these two bright cores glowing orange in the image below.They are very different. IRAS 16399S appears to be a starburst region, where new stars are forming at an incredible rate. IRAS 16399N, however, is something known as a LINER nucleus (Low Ionization Nuclear Emission Region), which is a region whose emission mostly stems from weakly-ionised or neutral atoms of particular gases.

The northern nucleus also hosts a black hole with some 100 million times the mass of the Sun!

When Neurogenesis Goes Wrong

Neurogenesis is a complex biological process by which neurons are generated from neural stem cells and progenitor cells. Indeed, the discovery of a dynamic neurogenesis in the adult brain (in both humans and animals) was a kind of extraordinary revelation. In fact, contrary to common popular belief, neurogenesis continuously occurs in specific regions in the adult brain, such as in the hippocampus and the striatum. Neurogenesis occurs in both physiological and pathological conditions.

The research is in PLOS ONE. (full open access)
