HubbleSite - Out of the ordinary...out of this world.
You know what really keeps religious folks from believing in scientists claiming that an entire universe worth of stuff just popped up from nothing is. To begin with you have to believe in something from noting. In school we learned with 2 jars, some meat and a piece of cheesecloth that maggots didn't come from meat(And that something doesn't come from nothing). Hubble has spotted an ancient galaxy that shouldn't exist

A strange, glowing green cloud of gas that has mystified astronomers since its discovery in 2007 has been studied by Hubble. The cloud of gas is lit up by the bright light of a nearby quasar, and shows signs of ongoing star formation. One of the strangest space objects ever seen is being scrutinised by the penetrating vision of the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. A mysterious, glowing green blob of gas is floating in space near a spiral galaxy. Hubble zooms in on a space oddity | Press Releases

Le mystérieux bourdonnement de la Voie Lactée — Atra Materia Fr Posted on février 14, 2012 by Ashley Corbion . Des chercheurs viennent de découvrir un mystérieux « bourdonnement » au coeur de notre galaxie: elle émet une importante quantité de rayonnement micro-onde, et pour l’instant son origine demeure totalement inconnue. Aussi, de nouvelles « îles » de monoxyde de carbone froid ont été découvertes, aidant les astronomes à identifier les régions où se forment de nouvelles étoiles. Le satellite Planck a été lancé en 2009 avec pour objectif l’étude du fond diffus cosmologique, afin de délivrer des données plus précises que son prédécesseur WMAP.

Each day a different image or photograph of our fascinating universe is featured, along with a brief explanation written by a professional astronomer. 2014 January 9 The Tadpoles of IC 410 Image Credit & Copyright: Martin Pugh Explanation: This telescopic close-up shows off the otherwise faint emission nebula IC 410 in striking false-colors. It also features two remarkable inhabitants of the cosmic pond of gas and dust below and right of center, the tadpoles of IC 410.

November 1, 2012: Solar systems with life-bearing planets may be rare if they are dependent on the presence of asteroid belts of just the right mass, according to a study by Rebecca Martin, a NASA Sagan Fellow from the University of Colorado in Boulder, and astronomer Mario Livio of the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, Md. They suggest that the size and location of an asteroid belt, shaped by the evolution of the Sun's protoplanetary disk and by the gravitational influence of a nearby giant Jupiter-like planet, may determine whether complex life will evolve on an Earth-like planet. The findings will appear today in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society: Letters (published by Oxford University Press).

The Hubble Space Telescope has captured the farthest-ever view into the universe, a photo that reveals thousands of galaxies billions of light-years away. The picture, called eXtreme Deep Field, or XDF, combines 10 years of Hubble telescope views of one patch of sky. Only the accumulated light gathered over so many observation sessions can reveal such distant objects, some of which are one ten-billionth the brightness that the human eye can see. Hubble Telescope Reveals Deepest View of Universe Ever
Total Solar Eclipse 2012 photos, near Mount Carbine, Queensland, Australia Total Solar Eclipse of November 14, 2012, as seen from a hilltop about 20 miles west of the Outback town of Mount Carbine, Queensland, along the Mulligan Highway (Peninsula Development Road), a road only paved in recent years. Heading inland to get away from coastal showers and clouds which were promising to interfere with the viewing, we drove some 150 miles into the outback to find a good spot the day before and settled upon a remote hillside, up along a dirt track that pulled away from the main road. The location was about 40 miles inland, and 67 miles from Cairns, as the crow flies. About 20 other cars camped out here as well under very dark skies. The duration of totality here was two minutes and two seconds (6:38:00 to 6:40:02 a.m. local), and was only about 8.55 miles from the centerline.

A video map of motions in the nearby universe (Phys.org) —An international team of researchers, including University of Hawaii at Manoa astronomer Brent Tully, has mapped the motions of structures of the nearby universe in greater detail than ever before. The maps are presented as a video, which provides a dynamic three-dimensional representation of the universe through the use of rotation, panning, and zooming. The video was announced last week at the conference "Cosmic Flows: Observations and Simulations" in Marseille, France, that honored the career and 70th birthday of Tully. The Cosmic Flows project has mapped visible and dark matter densities around our Milky Way galaxy up to a distance of 300 million light-years.
When Galaxies Collide! It sounds like an early science fiction novel. However, analysis of Hubble measurements shows that our own Milky Way galaxy is moving toward a head-on collision with our nearest neighbor, the Andromeda galaxy (also known as M31). The collision will start in about four billion years, and over the following three billion years the two spiral galaxies will coalesce into a large elliptical galaxy. Based on this data, NASA has produced a video of the upcoming collision. View all Hubble data predicts Milky Way galactic collision
