How white holes (might) be created. Bright galaxy sheds light on early Universe. Astronomers said on Wednesday they had snared light from a bright, ancient galaxy with a super-massive black hole at its core, a finding that would help explain aspects of the young Universe.
The phenomenon is called a quasar, which are very bright but very distant galaxies with a mighty black hole at their heart. Until now, the most distant quasar ever seen sent light 870 million years after the Big Bang, which is believed to have occurred nearly 13.7 billion years ago. Space Solar Power. Stellarium Wiki. Carl Sagan, Stephen Hawking and Arthur C. Clarke - God, The Universe and Everything Else. Most Distant Quasar Found. A team of European astronomers has used ESO's Very Large Telescope and a host of other telescopes to discover and study the most distant quasar found to date.
This brilliant beacon, powered by a black hole with a mass two billion times that of the Sun, is by far the brightest object yet discovered in the early Universe. The results will appear in the 30 June 2011 issue of the journal Nature.
Espace. Solar flare filmed by Nasa - video. Some black holes may be older than time. Stuart Gary for ABC Science Online Updated Fri 6 May 2011, 5:48pm AEST An intriguing new hypothesis suggests some black holes could have formed before the formation of our universe.
The work by Professor Bernard Carr from Queen Mary University in London and Professor Alan Coley from Canada's Dalhousie University, examines a cosmology in which the universe goes through cycles of birth and death. According to their work published on the pre-press website arXiv.org, some black holes could be remnants of a previous universe that collapsed in a big crunch and was then reborn in the big bang - 13.7 billion years ago. Called primordial black holes, they would be formed in the hyper dense conditions existing in the moments after the big bang. 1153 - Christmas Comet Lovejoy Captured at Paranal. Eso1153 — Photo Release 24 December 2011 The recently discovered Comet Lovejoy has been captured in stunning photos and time-lapse video taken from ESO’s Paranal Observatory in Chile.
The comet graced the southern sky after it had unexpectedly survived a close encounter with the Sun. Solar Activity and Human Behavior: a link? In response to an earlier post I did about Solar Flares and GPS disruption, someone commented about the affects that solar activity can have on human behavior.
Having read more about it since then, it seems that there are some interesting correlations. Space Shuttle Discovery - 360VR Images. Eta Carinae's 21-Year Outburst: A Cosmic Instant Replay! : Starts With A Bang. “Not explaining science seems to me perverse.
When you’re in love, you want to tell the world.” -Carl Sagan Nothing lasts forever in this Universe, not even the seemingly timeless stars in the sky. At any moment, any one of the brilliant, twinkling points of light from across the galaxy could run out of fuel, ending its life as we know it. It’s happened a number of times before in recorded history, and will no doubt happen again. Image credit: F. Types of solar and lunar eclipses.

NASA's WMAP Science Team Awarded 2012 Gruber Cosmology Prize NASA's Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe, known as WMAP, transformed the science of cosmology by establishing the age, geometry, and contents of the universe to astonishing precision.
On June 20, the Gruber Foundation recognized this accomplishment by awarding its 2012 Cosmology Prize to WMAP principal investigator Charles L. Bennett at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore and the science team he led. Eclipse Web Site. Bad Astronomy. Well now, this is an interesting discovery: astronomers have found what looks like a "super-Earth" – a planet more massive than Earth but still smaller than a gas giant – orbiting a nearby star at the right distance to have liquid water on it!
Given that, it might – might – be Earthlike. This is pretty cool news. Your Age on Other Worlds. Looking at the numbers above, you'll immediately notice that you are different ages on the different planets. This brings up the question of how we define the time intervals we measure. What is a day? What is a year? The earth is in motion. Actually, several different motions all at once. Mysteries in slow motion: Videos offer a glimpse into an aerial world we never see.
By Daily Mail Reporter Updated: 00:27 GMT, 15 January 2012 A series of high-speed animal flight videos are producing an amazing glimpse aerial world most of us have never seen before. Amateurs videographers, with a bit of luck, can use inexpensive digital cameras to turn blurred images into clear illustrations of animal and insect behaviour. A Dutch programme named Vilegkunstenaars asked videographers and animal lovers around the world to capture nature in flight, digg.com reports. They sent high speed video tools to amateurs and the results that came back were stunning. Especiales de lainformacion.com - Sol - Zoom. 2011 Solar & Lunar Eclipse Skywatching Guide. There will be two total lunar eclipses and four partial solar eclipses in 2011. January 4 Partial Solar Eclipse This partial eclipse will be visible at sunrise in northwestern Europe and northwestern Africa, at midday in northeastern Africa and the Middle East, and at sunset in central Asia.

Como las estrellas brillantes tienden a irradiar con fuerza en la parte azul del espectro visible y la polvo interestelar dispersa la luz azul con más fuerza que la roja, las nebulosas de reflexión polvorientas tienden a ser de color azul. En esta vista de telescopio de la cabeza de la constelación de Escorpión se ven dos buenos ejemplos: las tenues nebulosas de reflexión azules que hay cerca de las estrellas brillantes y calientes Pi y Delta Scorpii (en la parte superior izquierda y en la parte inferior derecha ).
Por supuesto, las nebulosas de emisión rojas también están causadas por la energética radiación de las estrellas calientes. Los fotones ultravioletas ionizan los átomos de hidrógeno de las nubes interestelares y, cuando los electrones se recombinan, se produce la característica línea de emisión roja del hidrógeno alfa. - StumbleUpon.
