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.

@egertgert

@alonsodiazuna I don't think so dear. Ask Nasa where are the original tapes of moonlanding?? Also why they cannot go to the moon again?? Good Luck in your thoughts😉 Human brain is awesome🙂

@alonsodiazuna why, so I can look at something fake?

@jannat_kaur6666

On which bases u say it is 10000 year,??

@jannat_kaur6666

Is cosmic rays harmful for uss

@egertgert

@alonsodiazuna yep maybe. Give a look what is called the thelescope of Vatican...? "Lucifer". Is that a view from him?
