For the first time, NASA scientists have detected light tied to a gravitational-wave event, thanks to two merging neutron stars in the galaxy NGC 4993, located about 130 million light-years from Earth in the constellation Hydra.
ESO’s fleet of telescopes in Chile have detected the first visible counterpart to a gravitational wave source. These historic observations suggest that this unique object is the result of the merger of two neutron stars. The cataclysmic aftermaths of this kind of merger — long-predicted events called kilonovae — disperse heavy elements such as gold […]
Date of discovery: Sept 19, 2017Location of discovery: Rho Ophiuchi cloud NebulaSource: BBC News at http://www.bbc.com/news/in-pictures-41231623 This face was found by me today when I was dreading the BBC News. Sometimes the most amazing discoveries are left undiscovered…right in front of our own noses. This photo unknowingly contains a giant alien face in the nebula. This is the […]
Phenomena across the Universe emit radiation spanning the entire electromagnetic spectrum — from high-energy gamma rays, which stream out from the most energetic events in the cosmos, to lower-energy microwaves and radio waves. Microwaves, the very same radiation that can heat up your dinner, are produced by a multitude of astrophysical sources, including strong emitters […]
Early science results from NASA’s Juno mission to Jupiter portray the largest planet in our solar system as a complex, gigantic, turbulent world, with Earth-sized polar cyclones, plunging storm systems that travel deep into the heart of the gas giant.

The objects circled very from structures to structures that are in the shape of faces. One photo has a white line through it, because […]
