Astronomy Photo of the Day (APotD): 9/01/14 — Peculiarities In Orion

This image, which was taken using the Green Bank Telescope (in West Virginia), showcases the complexities of the Great Orion nebula. Astronomers have long known that this stellar nursery is home to many peculiar features, which include “ribbons” of gas and evidence of a black hole lurking in the shadows. Now, astronomers captured the best image yet of one little know filamentary region within the nebula; a place pervaded by cool dust that’s just a few degrees above absolute zero.

Astronomy: How Do Stars Die?








Today, our solar system hosts planets, moons, and an abundance of life; however, it will not always be this way. Everything in the universe eventually dies, even our Sun…

Astronomers find Evidence of An Impact Outside Our Solar System

In another instance of insanely awesome science wins, astronomers have seen what might be the very first collision between two planetary bodies beyond our Sun’s influence: http://bit.ly/1vYuvVP
