Old news is better than no news… The Hubble Space Telescope turned 30 this year, and for the occasion, it’s sharing a present with you. NASA has just released dozens of newly processed Hubble images featuring 30 dazzling galaxies, sparkling star clusters, and ethereal nebulae… More about this Great article in the link below… https://scitechdaily.com/hubble-space-telescope-releases-images-of-30-celestial-gems-for-30th-anniversary/Read More Hubble Space Telescope Releases Images of 30 Celestial Gems For 30th Anniversary
In 2013, the European Space Agency (ESA) deployed the Gaia mission to space, a next-generation observatory that will spend the next five years gathering data on the positions, distances, and proper motions of stars. The resulting data will be used to construct the largest 3D space catalog ever, totaling 1 billion stars, planets, comets, asteroids, […]Read More This is Not a Photo of the Milky Way.

The Universe is a mysterious place. We don’t know why it exists, and there are a lot of unanswered questions as to the how. But what if it was created, on purpose, by an intelligent entity? Is there some way we could find out?

Astronomers have mapped about a million previously undiscovered galaxies beyond the Milky Way, in the most detailed survey of the southern sky ever carried out using radio waves. The Rapid ASKAP Continuum Survey (or RACS) has placed the CSIRO’s Australian SKA Pathfinder radio telescope (ASKAP) firmly on the international astronomy map. While past surveys have […]Read More We’ve mapped a million previously undiscovered galaxies beyond the Milky Way. Take the virtual tour here.
Two new studies from the University of Melbourne will help the largest, most powerful and complex space telescope ever built to uncover galaxies never before seen by humanity. The papers are published in The Astrophysical Journal and the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society and show that NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope, scheduled for launch late next year, will reveal […]Read More Research Shows NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope Will Reveal Hidden Galaxies
Seen here in incredible detail, thanks to the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, is the starburst galaxy formally known as PLCK G045.1+61.1. The galaxy, which appears as multiple reddish dots near the center of the image, is being gravitationally lensed by a cluster of closer galaxies, also seen in the image. https://www.nasa.gov/image-feature/goddard/2020/hubble-makes-a-bright-findRead More Hubble Makes a Bright Find | NASA
Astronomers around the world may have lost access to their telescopes during the coronavirus pandemic, sheltering in place along with the rest of us, but that hasn’t kept them from advancing their field. Two astronomers used the shutdown to comb through existing datasets to hunt for a rare type of quasar and wound up rediscovering […]Read More Astronomers have finally measured the distance of first observed Einstein ring – Ars Technica
