Spherical Cows and their X-ray Sources

As a layman I find this of particular importance when we send our vision out amongst the stars, all the while looking at the substance of these events “within the larger context of the universe.” While each particular event is … Continue reading

Spherical Cows

Cartoon Model of a SNR(Supernova Remnants) When scientists refer to a spherical cow, we are poking fun at ourselves. We are admitting that some of our models or descriptions of things are far more simple than the actual object, like … Continue reading

SuperFluids

MIT physicists create new form of matter by Lori Valigra, Special to MIT News Office June 22, 2005 A superfluid gas can flow without resistance. It can be clearly distinguished from a normal gas when it is rotated. A normal … Continue reading

First Stars Behind the Scene

There are several recognized processes from the early universe that leave relic effects setting the stage for galaxy formation and evolution. We deal here with the first generarion of stars, primordial nucleosynthesis, the epoch of recombination, and the thermal history … Continue reading

The Geometrics Behind the Supernova and it’s History

It is not always easy for people to see what lies behind the wonderful beauty of images that we take from the satellite measures of space, and it’s dynamical events illustrated in Cassiopeia A. There before you is this majestic … Continue reading

Hubble Finds Evidence for Dark Energy in the Young Universe

I had to go back to the article for some further reading. These snapshots, taken by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, reveal five supernovae, or exploding stars, and their host galaxies. The arrows in the top row of images point to … Continue reading

Cosmic ray spallation

As this NASA chart indicates, 70 percent or more of the universe consists of dark energy, about which we know next to nothing Other explanations of dark energy, called “quintessence,” originate from theoretical high-energy physics. In addition to baryons, photons, … Continue reading
