This animation captures phenomena observed over the course of nine days following the neutron star merger known as GW170817. They include gravitational waves (pale arcs), a near-light-speed jet that produced gamma rays (magenta), expanding debris from a kilonova that produced ultraviolet (violet), optical and infrared (blue-white to red) emission, and, once the jet directed toward us expanded into our view from Earth, X-rays (blue).

Located high in the mountains of Chile’s Atacama Desert, the enormous telescopes of the European Southern Observatory have been providing astronomers with unprecedented views of the night sky for 50 years. . . . #atacama #atacamadesert #milkyway #milkywaychasers #milkywaygalaxy #astronomy #cosmos #space #science #eso #nasa #astrophotography #nightsky #observatory #telescope #stargazing #stars #view #physics #spaceclub #astronomie #astronomia #universe #galaxy #curious #knowledge #astrophysics #astronomer #chile #skyporn

#Repost @universe_nl ・・・ This illustration presents a purely speculative view of what such a "hot Jupiter" might look like. It could have a powerful magnetic field that traps charged particles from the star. These particles create glowing auroral rings around the planet's magnetic poles. A powerful magnetic flux tube links the planet and star. This enhances stellar activity and triggers powerful flares. A powerful stellar wind creates a bow shock around the planet. The planet's atmosphere seethes at 1,650 degrees Celsius. #universe #universum #universe_NL #astronomy #nature #astronomer #astronomers #deepspace #sky #star #space #stars #science #skyporn #solarsystem #starcluster #mars #sterrenbeeld #solarsystem #supernova #cosmology #information #pluto #beautiful #backgarden #hubble #jupiter #nasa #ocean #cosmos

Located roughly 3 million light years away resides one of our galactic neighbours, the Triangulum Galaxy. With a total diameter of 50,000 light years, the Triangulum Galaxy is the third largest in the local group (after the andromeda galaxy and our home, the Milky Way.) The Triangulum Galaxy may appear normal at a glance but when observed more intently the uniqueness of this galaxy becomes apparent. The Triangulum Galaxy lacks a supermassive black hole at its galactic centre. Considering that the vast majority of every major galaxy contains a super massive blackhole this feature (or lack of) is puzzling. The gravity produced by a black hole generally acts as a sort of anchor for the stars orbiting around it, allowing some movement but generally restricting them from flying out into space. Astronomers studying the central region of M33 continue to speculate why it remains without a central black hole. #astronomy #space

🚨 New Blog Post Entrepreneurship | Iconic Women 💃🏼 In recent times, historical women have been acknowledged in literature, tv and film; from philosophers, doctors to mathematicians and theologists that have been miraculously kept hidden from our school textbooks. A recent movie entitled ‘Hidden Figures’ exposed my severe lack of knowledge on how many women were responsible for some historical breakthroughs and events, therefore it would only be right, to share the stories behind these Iconic Women that you may or may not have heard about in this series. Feel free to add to the list in the comments section on my blog #linkinbio I think you too will feel rather annoyed that these women where not mentioned throughout our younger years!

His name means "He Who Comes in Peace" and he is the only Egyptian besides Amenhotep to be fully deified, becoming the god of wisdom and medicine (or, according to some sources, god of science, medicine, and architecture). Imhotep was a priest, vizier to King Djoser (and possibly to the succeeding three kings of the Third Dynasty), a poet, physician, mathematician, astronomer, and architect. Although his Step Pyramid is considered his greatest achievement, he was also remembered for his medical treatises which regarded disease and injury as naturally occuring instead of punishments sent by gods or inflicted by spirits or curses. He was deified by the Egyptians in c. 525 BCE and was equated with the demi-god of healing Asclepius by the Greeks. His works were still extremely popular and influential during the Roman Empire and the emperors Tiberius and Claudius both had their temples inscribed with praise of the benevolent god Imhotep Under King Djoser's reign (c. 2670 BCE) Imhotep was vizier and chief architect. Throughout his life, he would hold many titles including First After the King of Upper Egypt, Administrator of the Great Palace, Chancellor of the King of Lower Egypt, Hereditary Nobleman, High Priest of Heliopolis, and Sculptor and Maker of Vases Chief. Imhotep was a commoner by birth who advanced to the position of one of the most important and influential men in Egypt through his natural talents.

Giant molecular clouds, containing mostly hydrogen and helium, are where most new stars and planets form. W51 is one of the closest such objects to Earth so it is an excellent target for learning more about the star-formation process. A new composite image of W51 with X-ray data from Chandra (blue) and Spitzer (orange and yellow-green) is being released. The X-ray data show the young stars are often clumped together in clusters, while bathing their surroundings in high-energy light. .

Chandra observed Comet ISON and Comet PanSTARRS when these comets were relatively close to the Earth. The X-ray emission is produced when a wind of particles from the Sun strikes the comet's atmosphere. The Chandra data was use to estimate the composition of the solar wind, finding values that agree with independent measurements. .

1930 Чем может заниматься молодой специалист, когда над ним ночное небо? Вот и ассистент лаборатории Ловелла (Флагстафф, США) Клайд Томбо подумал и решил в этот день сделать снимок. Два дня спустя ему пришла в голову та же мысль, а еще через шесть дней его осенило вновь. Совершенно облениться он еще не успел, потому даже проявил сделанные снимки, но взглянуть на них решил только тремя неделями позже. Мир ожидала сенсация. Американский астроном, открыл карликовую планету - Плутон! Желаю Вам как можно больше открытий на этой неделе! #pluto #clyde #tombaugh #telescope #wonderdog #zoo #animals #trip #travel #puppy #bulldog #dog #dogs_of_instagram #frenchbulldog #puppy #бульдог #французскийбульдог #travel #history #dwarf #planet #astronomer #star #asteroid
