Totally spectacular flyover through the Veil Nebula

The Hubble Space Telescope took a new image of the Veil Nebula, a supernova remnant from a star that exploded 8,000 years ago, and made this truly spectacular flyover visualization of the beautiful ripple in space that you can see below. In the 3D visualization, red is sulfur, green is hydrogen and blue is oxygen. Read more...

Shrapnel from an exploded star

Astronomers are comparing new images of the Veil Nebula, taken by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope in April 2015 with Hubble images taken in 1997, to study how the nebula has expanded since it was photographed over 18 years ago. The supernova...Show More Summary

Galactic collision!

2 weeks agoGenres / Sci Fi : io9

Galactic collision! The Hubble Space Telescope captured this beautiful look at NGC 3921, a pair of disk galaxies in the late stages of merger. These galaxies, both about the same size, began merging 700 million years ago, as you can see from the distortions, including loops and tails, caused by the merge. Read more...

Plumes of Magellan

Every now and again, I see a picture of an astronomical object that has me scratching my head. The image above is from Hubble Space Telescope, and shows a section of a nebula in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a dwarf galaxy companion of our Milky Way. Show More Summary

Pardon My Flocculence

Spiral galaxies are just so danged pretty. Seriously, look at that! It’s an image of the nearby galaxy M63, aka the Sunflower Galaxy, taken using the Hubble Space Telescope. M63 is relatively close to us, a mere 37 million light-years, easily visible in small telescopes. Show More Summary

The Dark-Matter Universe --"Could Contain Rich Physics and Potentially Complex Behavior"

This is an approximately real-color image above from the Hubble Space Telescope, of galaxy cluster Abell 3827. The galaxy cluster is made of hundreds of yellowish galaxies. At its core, four giant galaxies are smashing into each other. As the...

Hubble Infrared --"10 Times More Primordial Galaxies Than Previously Detected"

Astronomers from the University of California, Irvine and Baltimore's Space Telescope Science Institute have generated the most accurate statistical description yet of faint, early galaxies as they existed in the universe 500 million years after the Big Bang. In a...

Two Gorgeous Views of a Nearby Galaxy

In galactic astronomy, 30 million light years is considered “close by”. It’s 300 quintillion kilometers, but hey, who’s counting? So, given that, check out this spectacular Hubble Space Telescope image of the “close by” galaxy M96: Yow! M96 is a spiral galaxy, similar to our Milky Way. Show More Summary

13.2 billion-year-old galaxy detected by NASA

4 weeks agoNews : The Raw Story

Scientists have detected an “unusually luminous” galaxy that they now believe to be the oldest galaxy ever observed. EGS8p7, detected using NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope and the Spitzer Space Telescope, is believed to have come into existence just 600 million years after the Big Bang, making it...

Hubble Unlocks Clues to Star Formation --From Blue Super Giants to Red Dwarfs

In a survey of NASA's Hubble Space Telescope images of 2,753 young, blue star clusters in the neighboring Andromeda galaxy (M31), astronomers have found that M31 and our own galaxy have a similar percentage of newborn stars based on mass....

Budget-oriented Twinkle space telescope could study exoplanets on the cheap

Maybe we don't need to spend billions to catch a glimpse of the weather on distant worlds. A new telescope would search the heavens and atmospheres for a fraction the cost of Hubble or the upcoming James Webb Telescope.
