Cocoon Nebula Deep Field!😍
•
Inside the Cocoon Nebula is a newly developing cluster of stars. The cosmic Cocoon on the upper right also punctuates a long trail of obscuring interstellar dust clouds to its left. Cataloged as IC 5146, the beautiful nebula is nearly 15 light-years wide, located some 3,300 light years away toward the northern constellation of the Swan (Cygnus). Like other star forming regions, it stands out in red, glowing, hydrogen gas excited by young, hot stars and blue, dust-reflected starlight at the edge of a nearly invisible molecular cloud. In fact, the bright star near the center of this nebula is likely only a few hundred thousand years old, powering the nebular glow as it slowly clears out a cavity in the molecular cloud's star forming dust and gas. This exceptionally deep color view of the Cocoon Nebula traces tantalizing features within and surrounding the dusty stellar nursery.

🌌 ARP 194 🌌
Questo sistema di galassie interagenti è stato ripreso da Hubble per i suoi 19 anni di attività.
Queste due galassie distano dalla terra 570milioni di anni luce e sono situate nella costellazione dell'orsa maggiore, la cosa più intrigante è senza dubbio il lunghissimo filare di stelle e polvere, la cui vera natura è verosimilmente un braccio di spirale che si è distorto per effetti gravitazionali, pieno di stelle appena formatesi. Questa configurazione si può verificare quando due galassie sono abbastanza prossime da interagire in una sorta di “tiro alla fune” gravitazionale.

Spiral Galaxy M96 from Hubble

Dust lanes seem to swirl around the core of Messier 96 in this colorful, detailed portrait of the center of a beautiful island universe. Of course M96 is a spiral galaxy, and counting the faint arms extending beyond the brighter central region, it spans 100 thousand light-years or so, making it about the size of our own Milky Way. M96, also known as NGC 3368, is known to be about 35 million light-years distant and a dominant member of the Leo I galaxy group. The featured image was taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. The reason for M96's asymmetry is unclear -- it could have arisen from gravitational interactions with other Leo I group galaxies, but the lack of an intra-group diffuse glow seems to indicate few recent interactions. Galaxies far in the background can be found by examining the edges of the picture.

It's time to go on a hunt! ☄️🔭⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀
This week, a team of astronomers, planetary scientists and software engineers based at ESA and other research institutes has launched a new citizen science project: the Hubble Asteroid Hunter. The project was developed as part of the Zooniverse – the world’s largest and most popular platform for people-powered research.
⠀⠀⠀
The new project features a collection of archival Hubble images where calculations indicate that an asteroid might have been crossing the field of view at the time of the observation. Everyone can participate! By identifying the asteroids potentially present in these images and marking the exact position of their trails, you too can help the team improve the asteroid orbit determination and better characterise these objects. Precise knowledge of the orbit is particularly important for so-called near-Earth asteroids, those potentially flying close to our planet.

Esta es Hércules 3C 348, es una galaxia que emite Colosales chorros de plasma de muy alta energía, estos son disparados casi a la velocidad de la luz desde el agujero negro central de ésta, lo interesante de estas emisiones es la increíble destrucción que deja a su paso, desde sistemas
Planetarios, estrellas y lunas, todos desintegrados al paso de la corriente de plasma, solo observen la longitud de tal chorro, cuyo diámetro se estimó de 1,000,000 de años luz (10 veces el diámetro de nuestra propia vía láctea) dejando un panorama totalmente caótico.

Hércules 3C 348 se encuentra a una increíble distancia de 2 mil millones de años luz, y es aproximadamente 1000 veces más masiva que la vía láctea, y su agujero negro central que es el causante de tal paisaje caótico posee unas 2,500 millones de masas solares. Díos, que sorpresas nos llevamos a veces, y más cuando sabes datos como estos 👍😎.

Highest energy photons ever recorded coming from Crab Nebula.

A very large team of researchers affiliated with several institutions in China and Japan has measured the highest energy photon ever recorded. 
The Tibet Air Shower Gamma Collaboration is an observatory in the Tibetan Plateau and the people that run it. It consists of 600 particle detectors built on a 65,000-square-meter parcel of land. Its objective is to detect subatomic particles emanating from space. The detectors there observe the debris from photons colliding with particles in the Earth's atmosphere and cosmic rays, which are mostly protons and atomic nuclei. The team members with this new effort were focused on photons that make their way to Earth from far-off places.

The researchers report that they found what they believe to be 24 photon-initiated showers, with photon energies above 100 trillion electron volts—one of which registered 450 TeV. These finds represent the first measurements of high energy photons over 100 TeV and the highest ever recorded.

The researchers also used the data from the collaboration to track the paths of the photons, and found they originated in the Crab Nebula, the remains of a supernova that was first observed in 1054 AD. The Crab Nebula is located in the Perseus Arm of the Milky Way, approximately 6,500 light years away.

Globules in the Running Chicken Nebula 🔭
The eggs from this chicken may form into stars. The above pictured emission nebula, cataloged as IC 2944, is called the Running Chicken Nebula for the shape of its greater appearance. The image was taken recently from Siding Spring Observatory in Australia and presented in scientifically assigned colors. Seen near the center of the image are small, dark molecular clouds rich in obscuring cosmic dust. Called Thackeray's Globules for their discoverer, these "eggs" are potential sites for the gravitational condensation of new stars, although their fates are uncertain as they are also being rapidly eroded away by the intense radiation from nearby young stars. Together with patchy glowing gas and complex regions of reflecting dust, these massive and energetic stars form the open cluster Collinder 249. This gorgeous skyscape spans about 70 light-years at the nebula's estimated 6,000 light-year distance.

Hubble Captures Elusive, Irregular Galaxy

This @nasahubble image shows an irregular galaxy named IC 10, a member of the Local Group — a collection of over 50 galaxies in our cosmic neighborhood that includes the Milky Way.

IC 10 is the closest-known starburst galaxy, meaning that it is undergoing a furious bout of star formation fueled by ample supplies of cool hydrogen gas. This gas condenses into vast molecular clouds, which then form into dense knots where pressures and temperatures reach a point sufficient to ignite nuclear fusion, thus giving rise to new generations of stars. 
As an irregular galaxy, IC 10 lacks the majestic shape of spiral galaxies such as the Milky Way, or the rounded, ethereal appearance of elliptical galaxies. It is a faint object, despite its relative proximity to us of 2.2 million light-years. In fact, IC 10 only became known to humankind in 1887, when American astronomer Lewis Swift spotted it during an observing campaign. The small galaxy remains difficult to study even today, because it is located along a line-of-sight which is chock-full of cosmic dust and stars.

Something's Hiding in Our Outer Solar System, But It Might Not Be Planet Nine.

Somewhere in the outer reaches of the Solar System, beyond the orbit of Neptune, something wonky is happening. A few objects are orbiting differently from everything else, and we don't know why.

A popular hypothesis is that an unseen object called Planet Nine could be messing with these orbits; astronomers are avidly searching for this planet. But earlier this year physicists came up with an alternative explanation they think is more plausible.

Instead of one big object, the orbital wobblies could be caused by the combined gravitational force of a number of smaller Kuiper Belt or trans-Neptunian objects (TNOs). That's according to astrophysicists Antranik Sefilian of the University of Cambridge in the UK and Jihad Touma of the American University of Beirut in Lebanon.

Saturn and its largest world Titan, are seen here in full infrared captured by the @geminiobs
🔭 💫
• How did they captured this?
Using the Altair adaptive optics system with the Near-infrared imager (NIRI). At the perimeter of Saturn's ring the F-ring is faintly visible. The F-ring was discovered in images from the Pioneer 11 spacecraft in 1979 and is normally not apparent in images taken with ground-based telescopes. Also apparent are several of Saturn's smaller moons. This colour composite image made using data from three infrared filters (K' [2.0-2.1 microns], h210 [2.12 micron narrowband], and bracket gamma[2.17 micron narrowband]), the field of view is about 40 arcseconds across.

Gaze in awe: An astronaut aboard the International Space Station (@ISS) snapped this image of the South Indian Ocean as the station flew 265 miles above the cloudy formation. The off-world laboratory orbits the Earth about every 90 minutes and helps us prepare for deep space exploration. The astronaut crews conduct experiments about Earth, space and the physical and biological sciences, benefitting people living on our home planet and future explorers. As a testbed for deep space exploration, the station is helping us learn how to keep astronauts healthy during long-duration space travel and demonstrating technologies for human and robotic exploration beyond low-Earth orbit.⠀

(One of) The Pillars of Creation ✨

This is one of 3 pieces I did about protostars. These enormous star nurseries are tucked away in a far away nebula that’s most likely destroyed and gone already 🤯 •

There’s something magical yet ghostly and ominous about the Pillars of Creation. @nasa beautifully describes them as towering tendrils of cosmic dust and gas that sit in the heart of M16, or the Eagle Nebula. •

As vast as they are vibrant, these pillars “float” tall and look as if in constant motion (because they are!). The Eagle Nebula is about 7,000 light years away, and only a teeny-tiny portion of this can be compared to our solar system (meaning that these pillars are pretty dang big!) •

I initially set out to create a diagram of the pillars, but instead, I wanted to show how cosmic material collectively move and swirl together, creating beautiful gradients of color that will ultimately be sucked into the intense gravitational force of a newborn star. •

The baby stars are pictured as the most vibrant yellow color surrounded by dark, dense looking colors like dark purple, which represent evaporating gaseous globules, or EGGs. These are the incubators of new stars. The blue colors in the image represent oxygen, red/orange is sulfur, and green represents both nitrogen and hydrogen. The pillars are bathed in the scorching ultraviolet light from a cluster of young stars located just outside the frame. The winds from these stars are slowly eroding the towers of gas and dust. As magnificent as these pillars are, they’ll soon disappear when a star is born🌟 •

Phew! That’s a lot of words, but definitely not as much as there are stars in the sky 😉 would love to hear your thoughts!

Планеты-океаны не лучшее место для поиска жизни🙄

Несмотря на то, что водные миры содержат один из ключевых компонентов для зарождения жизни, они могут быть не лучшими местами для ее поиска.☝️ Исследование команды показало, что планета, пропитанная океанами, может быть бедна фосфором, который является основным компонентом ДНК🧬. В отличие от других жизненно важных веществ, фосфор заперт в скалах и породах⛰️. Он высвобождается только под действием осадков, которые вымывают и переносят фосфор в океаны, где его «поджидают» микроорганизмы🌧️. Дождевая вода достаточно эффективна при растворении фосфора, чего нельзя сказать о морской, и это большая проблема для миров, полностью покрытых солеными морями. Без каких-либо открытых участков суши количество фосфора, доступного для развивающейся жизни, будет крайне мало.

The sound of space (Use headphones🎧🎧)
Earth, Mars, Saturn, Enceladus(Saturn's Moon), Jupiter, Uranus, Colliding_black_hole .
In space, electromagnetic vibrations exist and can be mapped as sound. These electromagnetic vibrations pulsate in different wavelengths and
can be recorded by special equipment in NASA's
spacecrafts. The recordings are then translated into
sounds that our ears could hear.

Uranus and the rings as seen in false-color by the Hubble Space Telescope in 2014, your periodic reminder that all our gas and ice giant planets have ring systems. Processed using infrared, green, and blue filtered images. I brightened the rings a lot relative to the planet, and the fading as the rings approach the planet are an artifact of how I blended the two exposure levels. .
