Check astrophysicsman's Instagram NGC 3314 is a pair of overlapping galaxies located some 117-140 light years away in the constellation Hydra. Although these galaxies may appear to be interacting, their actually not. The galaxies are too far apart and therefore do not interact with each other. This is actually a very unique alignment, and has given astronomers the opportunity to study and measure the properties of interstellar dust in the face-on foreground galaxy which appear dark against the background galaxy. 
In March 2000 while observing NGC 3314 astronomers spotted a green-like star. Astronomers have theorized that this may have been a supernova explosion, however, it still remains unknown.

Check astrophysicsman's Instagram Are we alone in the universe? Is Earth the only habitable world in the universe? The answer to these questions may be closer than we think, literally. When we talk of other life forms in the universe we usually think of other planets light years away that contain life. However, new findings are showing that there may be other habitable worlds within our own solar system. Europa, Enceladus, Titan, and Mars all show promise. 
Europa is one of the four Galilean moons of Jupiter. The Voyager flybys of the moon showed evidence Europa harbours a subsurface ocean, which is home to organic compounds. Water and organic compounds sounds extremely promising. Europa, however, isn't the only world where water and organic compounds exist, or use to exist. Saturn's moon Enceladus, like Europa, contains a subsurface ocean of liquid water rich in organic compounds. Mars is known to have once had rivers, lakes, and perhaps even oceans of liquid water across its surface. Mars also contains organic compounds. Life may not exist there anymore, but maybe it once did. Titan, however, is a different story. Although Titan has hydrocarbons and other organic compounds, it doesn't have liquid water. It still has a liquid on its surface, however. This liquid isn't water, it's liquid methane and ethane. If life exists on Titan it will be far different than any life forms we've encountered. 
Are we alone? New findings even within our own solar system suggest that we are in fact not alone. However, any life forms in our solar system are likely going to be very simple organisms, likely a kind of bacteria. What about complex life? We may have to look deeper into space to find answers.

Check astrophysicsman's Instagram The first step to finding alien life is to look for an area where it could potentially exist. The Kepler space telescope has shown that their could be over 40 billion Earth-like planets in our galaxy alone. Astronomers have discovered a few of these planets. If life exists on any of these planets how could we know? Some are hundreds to thousands of light years away, so we obviously can't go there ourselves. So how can we detect alien life from Earth? One method which has been used on gas giants around other stars is to examine the spectrum of the planet. How? Planets are so small and dim how could we possibly study their spectrum? So far astronomers have only been able to study the spectrum of giant gas planets around other stars, technology simply isn't advanced enough yet to examine the spectrum of smaller rocky worlds. How does examining the spectrum of a planet help us determine whether life exists there or not? Simply find large amounts of oxygen like the Earth's atmosphere. The oxygen in our atmosphere is primarily due to life. If we found large amounts of oxygen in another planets atmosphere it would be evidence of life. If you also found the spectrum of methane within the atmosphere, in small amounts, it would also offer evidence of life. How do we know that large amounts oxygen and lower amounts of methane in an atmosphere mean life exists there? Because that's exactly what the Earth's atmosphere contains. And both the methane and oxygen are produced by living organisms. So if scientists ever discovered large quantities oxygen and small quantities of methane in a planets atmosphere it would be evidence of alien life.

Check astrophysicsman's Instagram It's interesting that the life and death of a star is determined by the stars mass. Massive stars, such as O-type stars, tend to live relatively short lives (in astronomical terms). Massive stars such as these live only a few hundred millions years until they die in a supernova explosion. Why is this? Why is it that massive stars live short lives? Because the star is so massive it has a very high temperature and tends to burn its nuclear fuel at a fairly fast rate. The hydrogen within the star is fused into helium at a much faster rate in higher mass stars than lower mass stars. Lower mass stars, such as our sun, can continue to burn nuclear fuel in their cores for billions of years, and even lower mass stars, such as M stars, can live for trillions of years until they burn all their nuclear fuel. These stars not only live differently, but will also die differently. Massive stars will die in massive supernova explosions and will form either a neutron star, a pulsar, or a black hole depending on its mass. Lower mass stars will die a much quieter death. Rather than bursting apart, lower mass stars will simply expand and eventually fade away, forming a planetary nebulae with a white dwarf at its centre.

Check apeiron_universe_'s Instagram Helix Nebula at different frequencies! : The Helix Nebula, also known as The Helix, NGC 7293, is a large planetary nebula (PN) located in the constellation Aquarius. Discovered by Karl Ludwig Harding, probably before 1824, this object is one of the closest to the Earth of all the bright planetary nebulae. The estimated distance is about 215 parsecs (700 light-years). It is similar in appearance to the Cat's Eye Nebula and the Ring Nebula, whose size, age, and physical characteristics are similar to the Dumbbell Nebula, varying only in its relative proximity and the appearance from the equatorial viewing angle.The Helix Nebula has sometimes been referred to as the "Eye of God" in pop culture, as well as the "Eye of Sauron".

Check astrophysicsman's Instagram Globular star clusters are among the most stunning objects in the universe. Globular clusters contain many thousands or even millions of individual stars. Globular star clusters are basically large spherical regions of space containing large numbers of stars. Globular star clusters are very compact, and most stars within a globular cluster are only light days or light hours apart. These relatively short distances between stars make it difficult for stars to move apart. Rather, the combined gravity of so many stars in a relatively small region of space means that a globular cluster will remain intact essentially forever. 
Globular star clusters contain little to no star forming material. Higher mass blue stars are extremely rare in globular clusters, and there are very few examples of globular clusters containing higher mass stars. The reason for this has to do with how old most globular clusters are. In our galaxy, many globular clusters are billions of years old, some are perhaps as old as the Milky Way itself. Higher mass stars live relatively short, existing for only a few hundred millions years or so, if that. Globular clusters contain an abundance of lower mass red and yellow stars. Some of the oldest stars in the galaxy exist within globular clusters. 
The above image shows the globular star cluster Omega Centauri. Omega Centauri is the largest and brightest of over 150 other globular clusters that exist in our galaxy. In fact, Omega Centauri is so bright that for centuries it was believed to be a single star, when in reality it's a large spherical region of space some 170 light years across and 16,000 light years away and is home to several millions stars. Interestingly, like galaxies, many globular clusters are dominated by a large black hole at their centres. At the centre of Omega Centauri there exists a black hole with a mass of 40,000 suns. A black hole of this mass is neither a stellar-mass black hole nor a supermassive black hole. Astronomers are still unsure how exactly these intermediate-mass black holes form. It's possible they formed from the collisions of many smaller black holes. 1434641812694099511_4008710248

Check astrophysicsman's Instagram In 1960, radioastronomer Frank D. Drake, then at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Green Bank, West Virginia, carried out humanity's first attempt to detect interstellar radio transmissions from other intelligent beings in the cosmos. Since then, humanity has been on an unprecedented search for life beyond the Earth. And not just any life, but intelligent life. 
Radio is the most efficient form of communication across interstellar space that we know of, and thus is a good form of communication with other beings. By using large radio telescopes, SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) has been looking for radio signals from other intelligent beings. Unfortunately, nothing has been found. Scientists have been listening, but have heard nothing. Many think we shouldn't look, that's it's a waste of time, that scientists will never find anything. Yet what if they do? After all using these telescopes and searching for other intelligent beings is very cheap and costs very little. Why not look, just in case someone is out there calling out to us. 
It's highly unlikely that any other intelligent beings in the cosmos will be in technological lock step with us. Either they are going to be far behind us, or far ahead of us. Just think of the advancements we have made in the past century. Imagine a species that is far ahead of us. Maybe thousands, even millions of years ahead. What would seem like magic or impossible to us, could be remarkably easy for them. If we ever do receive a message from another intelligent life form, we will likely learn a thing or two. 
How do you think the world would react to the discovery of another intelligent civilization?

Check astrophysicsman's Instagram Nebulae are stellar nurseries. Deep inside a nebulae stars are born. Hydrogen within the nebulae collapses under gravitational forces. Gravitational forces draw the hydrogen toward the core at an ever increasing rate. As the hydrogen collapses the temperature increases. The gas has now become a protostar. The temperature climbs to millions of degrees until a process known as nuclear fusion takes place. The hydrogen atoms fuse together to create helium atoms. The star flares into life. Now a forceful stellar wind sweeps away the surrounding material and lights up nearby gas. A star is born. 
If you view the image above, which is an image of a small portion of the Carina Nebula, you will realize that near the top of the large pillar of gas and dust there are strange looking clumps. These clumps of gas and dust are the beginning stages of star formation. The hydrogen gas is collapsing under the force of gravity, and, in a few million years or so, these clumps of gas and dust will become stars.

Nebulae are stellar nurseries. Deep inside a nebulae stars are born. Hydrogen within the nebulae collapses under gravitational forces.

✔ ثبت با کیفیت ترین تصاویر از زمین توسط نسل جدید ماهواره های هواشناسي با نام GOES-16
این ماهواره پیشرفته که اخیرا و در یک همکاری مشترک میان ناسا و بخش هواشناسي آن به فضا ارسال شده، از ارتفاع 22300 مایلی تصاویر فوق العاده ای را به زمین ارسال می نماید.
محققین اميدوارند با استفاده از اطلاعات ارسال شده شناخت بهتری نسبت به سیستمهای پیچیده آب و هوایی زمین یافته و پیش بینی های مطمین تری ارایه نمایند.

NASA and the NOAA recently launched a satellite called GOES-16. This new satellite is part of a new generation of weather satellites that will give us more information on our planet's complex weather systems and will allow scientists to better predict weather across the globe. Just recently, GOES-16 began sending back its first images of Earth, and they are spectacular! GOES-16 observes Earth from an equatorial view approximately 22,300 miles from the surface. This image was recently taken by #GOES-16, and it's absolutely stunning! Truly one of my favourite images of the Earth.
