The Universe in Colour
[ Hide the intro ] Have you looked at the night sky lately? If you did it from a "light polluted" city, you may have seen a greyish sky and a handful of stars. If you did it from a suburban or country-side area, you probably saw many more stars and perhaps even a decent view of our Milky Way.

The word light usually makes one think of the colors of the rainbow or light from the Sun or a lamp. This light, however, is only one type of electromagnetic radiation. Electromagnetic radiation comes in a range of energies, known as the electromagnetic spectrum. The spectrum consists of radiation such as gamma rays, x-rays, ultraviolet, visible, infrared and radio. Electromagnetic radiation travels in waves, just like waves in an ocean. The Chandra X-ray Observatory Center :: Gateway to the Universe of X-ray Astronomy!

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 Hubble zooms in on a space oddity | Press Releases

Le mystérieux bourdonnement de la Voie Lactée — Atra Materia Fr 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.

Asteroid Belts of Just the Right Size are Friendly to Life (11/01/2012 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 discovery of Kepler-186f confirms that planets the size of Earth exist in the habitable zone of stars other than our sun.
