The Moon's ancient atmosphere. . For nearly 70 million years, the Moon had an atmosphere formed by volcanic gas 3.5 billion years ago . The Moon has been through some rough times. Just a few hundred million years after its formation, The moon had volcanic eruptions filling the landscape with lava flows, when the primordial Moon underwent this extremely violent period of volcanic activity, it spewed out enough gas to produce a relatively thick atmosphere that persisted for about 70 million years. . there are some gases that could have settled into freezing, shaded craters near the lunar poles. If so, these volatile gases may be trapped in icy deposits, forming reservoirs of air and fuel that astronauts can tap into for future missions to the Moon and beyond. And in that case, maybe the Moon’s rough time was worth it. # Follow us if you liked this. . . via @astronomy_news . . . #galaxy #universe #astrophysics #thedailycosmos #nebula #milkywaystars #milkywaypics #ig_astrophotography #elitelongexposures #nasabeyond

Raise your arms if you see an aurora. With those instructions, two nights went by with, well, clouds -- mostly. On the third night of returning to same peaks, though, the sky not only cleared up but lit up with a spectacular auroral display. Arms went high in the air, patience and experience paid off, and the creative featured image was captured as a composite from three separate exposures. The setting is a summit of the Austnesfjorden fjord close to the town of Svolvear on the Lofoten islands in northern Norway. The time was early 2014. Although our Sun is nearing Solar Minimum and hence showing relatively little surface activity, holes in the upper corona have provided some nice auroral displays over the last few months.

Throwback to 2016 when I spent a day roaming about the hundred acre observatory in kavalur that housed Asia's largest telescope. That starry night sky rivaled every other starry sky that my eye had seen. Read more on my blog.

#FastRepost from @sciencehumanist by @fastrepost_app ••• A beautiful new image of two colliding galaxies has been released by NASA's Great Observatories. The Antennae galaxies, located about 62 million light years from Earth, are shown in this composite image from the Chandra X-ray Observatory (blue), the Hubble Space Telescope (gold and brown), and the Spitzer Space Telescope (red). The Antennae galaxies take their name from the long antenna-like "arms," seen in wide-angle views of the system. These features were produced by tidal forces generated in the collision. The collision, which began more than 100 million years ago and is still occurring, has triggered the formation of millions of stars in clouds of dusts and gas in the galaxies. The most massive of these young stars have already sped through their evolution in a few million years and exploded as supernovas. The X-ray image from Chandra shows huge clouds of hot, interstellar gas that have been injected with rich deposits of elements from supernova explosions. This enriched gas, which includes elements such as oxygen, iron, magnesium and silicon, will be incorporated into new generations of stars and planets. The bright, point-like sources in the image are produced by material falling onto 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. The Spitzer data show infrared light from warm dust clouds that have been heated by newborn stars, with the brightest clouds lying in the overlap region between the two galaxies. The Hubble data reveal 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.

Indigenous Indonesian tribes have been discovered to be genetically adapted to underwater spear fishing. These people regularly free dive 70m down below the surface with nothing but a spear and a wooden mask. . Genetic research was carried out on these people to find that they had spleens 50% larger than normal people, which are responsible for releasing oxygen to the blood. This is why they can spend extremely long times underwater when compared to an average person, it’s also believed that only the sea otter can rival them for the longest time that it can spend underwater (13 minutes) . #science #chemistry #physics #biology #technology #space #astrophysics #future #engineering #news #nasa #sciencenews #sciences #scienceworld #geology

Images of planetary nebula offer us glimpse of the fate of our sun. For one day our sun will suffer a similar fate as the dying star in this video. In an estimated 4-5 billion years, the sun will enter into the final stages of its life. The sun formed around 4-5 billion years ago and is currently half way through its life. The sun formed from a swirling cloud of hydrogen gas that collapsed under its own gravity. The increasing temperatures ignited nuclear fusion within the core of the forming star and the sun was born. Hydrogen within the core of the sun continues to be fused into helium, powering the star. The sun is made mostly of hydrogen, yet helium is accumulating in the core. The sun only contains a finite amount of usable hydrogen, so eventually it will run out. Since it was born, the sun has been fighting a continues battle between two forces: gravity and the nuclear forces within the core. The gravity of the sun tries to crush it, while the nuclear forces in the core try to expand the sun. Both of these forces create a kind of equilibrium, yet it won't last forever. When the sun begins to run out of usable hydrogen, the nuclear forces weaken and the sun will begin to collapse. However, the compression of the sun will cause an increase in temperature which allows helium to be used as fuel. Helium fuses to form heavier elements, like carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, and other elements. The fusion of helium and other heavier elements will cause the sun to expand and cool. The sun will become many times its current size and it will cool and become red in colour. The sun will become a red giant. Through many periods of expansion and contraction, layers of heavier elements form within the sun. As the sun expands larger in size, its mass decreases and it begins to lose more material to space. The outer layers of the sun will be lost to space to form a shell of material around the sun called a planetary nebula. Meanwhile, the core of the sun will gravitationally collapse to form a white dwarf. Video credits: @bosplanet
How do we spot something as tiny and faint as a planet trillions of miles away? The trick is to look at the star! So far, most of the exoplanets – worlds beyond our solar system – we’ve found were detected by looking for tiny dips in the brightness of their host stars! These dips are caused by the planet passing between us and its star – an event called a “transit.” Our newest planet hunter, the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), will seek out transits around 200,000 of the nearest and brightest stars in the sky. TESS is slated to launch tomorrow, April 18, at 6:51 p.m. EDT on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
