A new study using data from our NuSTAR space telescope suggests that Eta Carinae, the most luminous and massive stellar system within 10,000 light-years, is accelerating particles to high energies — some of which may reach Earth as cosmic rays, subatomic particles from outside our planet’s atmosphere.
Eta Carinae's great eruption in the 1840s created the billowing Homunculus Nebula, imaged here by our Hubble Space Telescope (@nasahubble). Now about a light-year long, the expanding cloud contains enough material to make at least 10 copies of our Sun. Astronomers cannot yet explain what caused this eruption.

@cenz_official OMG are you idiot my friend?


@hurrican3_eyes could you sound any more moronic???


Ok NASA listen up, color is only caused by light. In this horribly photoshopped picture there is no stars nor sun so there shouldn't be color. If you are going to try to fool us get your stuff right.






Thanos is using the reality stone right there!!


Why does it looks like Thor's hammer


@nasa when you’re out there what does it feel like?


It seems like a fetus !


Nasa is we going to die?


So Beautiful Nasa 🇺🇸🚀
