Faster Than Light Space

An illustration of a blazar, or a spinning black hole that gobbles up matter and shoots out jets of high-energy radiation and particles. ⠀ ⠀ Blazers are supermassive black holes emitting powerful jets of ionized matter travelling at nearly the speed of light and pointed directly at Earth. They are the most luminous and energetic objects in the known Universe. ⠀ ⠀ #spitzerspacetelescope

Astronaut Habitat Testing 🚀 ⠀ ⠀ NASA is currently conducting a two-week ground test on Bigelow Aerospace's B330 habitat at the company's headquarters in North Las Vegas, Nevada. The agency is running these tests as part of its Next Space Technologies for Exploration Partnerships (NextSTEP) program, which awarded funding to Bigelow and five other companies in 2016 to create prototypes for habitats that could support astronauts traveling to distant destinations: the moon, Mars and other places farther away.⠀ ⠀ #spitzerspacetelescope

“The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff.” 💫 ― Carl Sagan, Cosmos⠀ ⠀ #spitzerspacetelescope

Something's hiding in our outer solar system, but it might not be planet nine.⠀ ⠀ Somewhere in the outer reaches of the Solar System, beyond the orbit of Neptune, something wonky is happening. A few objects are orbiting differently from everything else, and we don't know why.⠀ ⠀ A popular hypothesis is that an unseen object called Planet Nine could be messing with these orbits; astronomers are avidly searching for this planet. But earlier this year physicists came up with an alternative explanation they think is more plausible.⠀ ⠀ Instead of one big object, the orbital wobblies could be caused by the combined gravitational force of a number of smaller Kuiper Belt or trans-Neptunian objects (TNOs). That's according to astrophysicists Antranik Sefilian of the University of Cambridge in the UK and Jihad Touma of the American University of Beirut in Lebanon.⠀ ⠀ What do you think of this?

NGC 3576 aka The Statue of Liberty nebula (right) and NGC 3603 (left). NGC 3576 is located about 9000 light-years away in the Sagittarius arm of our Milky Way in the constellation of Carina with a diameter of nearly 100 light years across. ⠀ Strong stellar winds from the NGC 3576′s embedded young, massive stars shape two huge filaments resembling the curled horns of a ram.⠀ NGC 3603 is a glowing cloud of gas, dust, and stars some 20,000 light years distant toward the constellation Carina. Being a very active star birthing place, in its center lies a Wolf–Rayet multiple star system, known as HD 97950.⠀ Both nebulas were discovered by John Herschel in 1834 💫 ⠀ ⠀ #spitzerspacetelescope

This composite image from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, Chandra X-Ray Observatory and the Hubble Space Telescope shows the two colliding Antennae galaxies, NGC 4038 and NGC 4039. The Antennae galaxies take their name from their long antenna-like "arms". These features were produced by tidal forces generated in their collision. ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ ▫️▫️▫️▫️ The Spitzer data shows infrared light from warm dust clouds that have been heated by newborn stars. The Hubble data reveals old stars and star-forming regions in gold and white while filaments of dust appear in brown. Many of the fainter objects in the optical image are clusters containing thousands of stars. ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ The bright, point-like sources in the image are produced by material falling into black holes and neutron stars that are remnants of the massive stars. Some of these black holes may have masses that are almost one hundred times that of the Sun. ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ ✨Constellation- Corvus/ 📏Distance62,000,000Light Years/🌊Redshift-0.005475 ~NASA/JPL-Caltech/Z.
