Hubble Telescope reveals Spinning Core of Crab Nebula

Hubble Telescope reveals Spinning Core of Crab Nebula

As per a Chinese tale about a millennium old, astronomers from China noticed a bright new star in the constellation Taurus. The most interesting thing about the star was that it was noticed for few weeks, even in daylight. It starts fading after some time and vanished after some years. Astronomers, that time, who didn’t have high-quality telescopes like today’s astronomers, were surprised to see that strange star.

NASA showcases 'Cold Traps' On Ceres With Information Collection by Dawn Mission

Ceres has some permanently shadowed areas, which don’t receive direct sunlight. These regions are cold enough to trap water ice for a long time, announced Dawn mission controllers at NASA. The discovery hints that these regions on the dwarf planet may have ice deposits today, they added.

Cold traps confirmed on Ceres: Research

Cold traps confirmed on Ceres

Astronomers have unveiled that many permanently shadowed regions and craters have been spotted by NASA’s Dawn space prove on dwarf planet Ceres. These regions as per the researchers are cold traps, where ice can collect over time.

Researcher Norbert Schorghofer from the University of Hawaii at Manoa said that Ceres is having sufficient amount of water to hold on water molecules. Also, the shadowed regions being found by Dawn are colder than most that exist on the moon or Mercury.

A research paper published in the journal Science has unveiled about an exoplanet named HD 131399Ab in a triple star system. Another interesting thing about this star, detected through direct imaging, is that it should not be where it is currently present.

Here’s What Hubble Telescope sees at the Core of Crab Nebula

The Hubble Space Telescope (HST) of NASA is in operation since last more than two decades. The telescope, launched in 1990, has revealed several cosmic secrets. Now, it is again in news for capturing a stunning picture of Crab Nebula. The image shows dynamic processes in the center of nebula in the constellation of Taurus.

Saturn’s largest moon Titan could Support Alien Life; Here’s How

Saturn’s largest moon Titan could Support Alien Life; Here’s How

Our solar system’s gas giants like Saturn and Jupiter are not capable of supporting life, but their moons may have the potential to harbor alien life. A new study on Saturn’s largest moon Titan suggested that chemical trail on it hints the moon could be bearer of life.

Study researchers analyzed data collected by Huygens and Cassini spacecraft of NASA and found chemical trail, which suggests Titan may support life. They said the data shows that prebiotic conditions exist on the moon.

NASA extends New Horizons mission

NASA extends New Horizons mission

NASA has officially announced the extension of the New Horizons mission. Last year, the spacecraft served its actual purpose wonderfully at the time of historic flyby of the Pluto system. For months, it has been hurtling in the direction of parts-less-known.

Last year in October, scientists made New Horizons fire its thrusters so that it can change its position course in the direction of an object called 2014 MU69. Now, because of the funding approval, the team is well aware that it will be there to go through the data when New Horizons reaches that fresh target in 2019.
