Antennae Starwave Formation

Supernova explosions are enriching the intergalactic gas with elements like oxygen, iron, and silicon that will be incorporated into new generations of stars and planets X-ray: NASA/CXC/SAO/J.DePasquale; IR: NASA/JPL-Caltech; Optical: NASA/STScI A beautiful new image of two colliding galaxies has … Continue reading

Lost in Translation

Photo Credit: NASA Supernova Remnant Turns 400Four hundred years ago, sky watchers, including the famous astronomer Johannes Kepler, were startled by the sudden appearance of a “new star” in the western sky, rivaling the brilliance of the nearby planets. Now, … Continue reading

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

We are , What Stars are Made of?

One thing I can tell you, though, is that most string theorist’s suspect that spacetime is a emergent Phenomena in the language of condensed matter physics Edward Witten Imagine indeed, that such a picture below is an approximate of how … 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

NASA’s Hubble Telescope Celebrates SN 1987A’s 20th Anniversary

A String of ‘Cosmic Pearls’ Surrounds an Exploding Star-NASA, ESA, P. Challis, and R. Kirshner (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics) Twenty years ago, astronomers witnessed one of the brightest stellar explosions in more than 400 years. The titanic supernova, called SN … 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
