Some damn good wholesome memories of carolling with my amazing department, next to my best friend and roomie Theo and my research professor Dr. Ty Robinson. I love my department to bits and can't wait to return next semester ❤️🌌 #astrophysics #astrophysicsmajors #physics #astronomy #collegelife #nau #physicsdepartment #sciencerocks

This is the spiral galaxy NGC 772. At a distance of 100 million light years we are seeing this galaxy as it was 100 million years ago. This is due to the finite speed of light, it’s a real life way to look straight into the past! Astrophysicists use the finite speed of light to build a picture of the early universe and to help understand how galaxies formed ————————————————————————photo credit: nasa

New Break out today (follow link in bio to our site)! Looking at the magnetic "song" of a cosmic cloud of molecules, scientists were able to see it in 3D. Sounds confusing? Check out the fascinating explanation on today's Break!

Although there are most certainly five #galaxies present here in this clip of Stephan's Quintet, one member of the group is an imposter, counted among their number only by virtue of a trick of perspective. While four of the galaxies lie 300 million light-years from #Earth , the paler #galaxy namely NGC 7320, is more than seven times closer, as evidenced by #Hubble being able to resolve individual stars within the galaxy.

Shadows on Earth can be mysterious and foreboding, but when they occur in space, they can convey information we otherwise could not know. In a stellar nursery called the Serpens Nebula, nearly 1,300 light-years away, a young star’s game of shadow play is revealing secrets of its unseen planet-forming disk. The near-infrared vision of Hubble captured the shadow cast by the fledgling star’s brilliant light being blocked by this disk.

Named HBC 672, this Sun-like star is surrounded by a debris ring of dust, rock, and ice—a disk that is too small and too distant to be seen, even by Hubble. But like a little fly that wanders into the beam of a flashlight shining on a wall, its shadow is projected large upon the cloud in which it was born.

In this Hubble image, the feature—nicknamed the “Bat Shadow”—spans approximately 200 times the length of our solar system. It is visible in the upper right portion of the picture.

The presence of a shadow means that the disk is being viewed nearly edge-on. This is something that could not otherwise be known because of the disk’s great distance from us, which makes it too small to be seen by Hubble.

The disk’s shadow is similar to what is produced by a cylindrical lamp shade. Light escapes from the top and bottom of the shade, but along its circumference, dark cones of shadow form. Although the disk that gives rise to the shadow is a common object around young stars, the combination of an edge-on viewing angle and the surrounding nebula is rare.

Scientists can use the shadow to figure out the shape of the disk. For example, they now know that the disk is puffy, which implies that it is full of gas. While most of the shadow is completely opaque, scientists can look for color differences along its edges, where some light gets through. They can use the shape and color of the shadow to determine the size and composition of dust grains suspended in the disk.

Here's an update on 🌑⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀
The spacecraft began its seven year journey by unfurling antennas and solar arrays, taking a few selfies and deploying a three metre magnetometer boom. BepiColombo, a joint mission between us and @jaxajp, will soon engage its solar propulsion engine but meanwhile scientists are busy preparing for its arrival in 2025. ⠀⠀

Arp 147 désigne un duo de galaxies situé à environ 440 millions d'années-lumière du Système solaire en direction de la constellation de la Baleine. Ces galaxies présentent des indices d'une collision passée dont les traces, le bleu synonyme de formation courte et intense d'étoiles (conséquence de l'onde de choc provoquée) et la structure étirée, témoignent de la "violence" de cette rencontre.
