@Regranned from @astrodaily1 - "The purpose of life is finding the largest burden you can bear and bearing it."-Jordan B Peterson. Although this page largely consists of astronomy education, my deeper motive for it is to expose the true beauty of learning. I have said it before, but I will continue to emphasize that our ability to learn is all that we have. From scientific endeavors to the enigmatic feeling of love, the entirety of human existence is one large learning experience. We all know that learning is difficult, and inherent in the process of learning is suffering. The fact that we voluntarily subject ourselves to this suffering says a great deal about our motivation as a species. I hope that along with educating you, this page provides you with inspiration to keep learning and teaching others.

SPIRITUAL EVOLUTION IS THE PURPOSE OF LIFE: The day begins with darkness, almost in every part of planet Earth, at 12 a.m. in the Gregorian calendar. The Mayan calendar was much more exact, it ended on 12/21/12. Mayans left Earth a couple of hundred years ago. They are still in the Solar System. The darkness exists before the light. Quarks were the outcome of the big bang, then they started to interact in the dark, photons were created after matter was created by itself. Photons = light. Photons are a particule of the subatomic world. They do not have Mass. Photons are Gods, they are the sparkle that give prime origine to Carbon based life. Life on Earth Is Carbon based. There are Si based forms of life. Not in the Solar System. I will not tell you where on this post. Light is formed inside the stars. It takes millions of years for a photon to escape the star that formed it. Photons get together and travel through space forever. They have supposedly the greatest speed in the Universe. This Is not true. Thoughts travel much more faster. When humans understand the phenomenal phenomenon named "entanglement" they will evolve technological inmmensely. Unfortuntalely this will harm humanity instead of bennefiting it. I will not tell you why on this post. Like the stars in the Universe, light from an individual comes from inside. It Is very rare, it Is called enlightment. Humans are dark inside. They embrace light, this Is not natural. Space is 99.9% dark. Forgiveness is like light, it has the power of healing. Of healing ourselves. It gives us peace. In humans: technological evolution Is detrimentary to spiritual evolution. In the end everything will we darkness again. The Sun Is always rising and setting someplace on Earth, in reality is the rotation of Earth that causes this incorrect interpretation. Embrace, respect and love darkness. We all come from darkness. #astrobiology #enlightment #love #infinite #life #follow #universe #sol #forgiveness #yogagirl #sunset #math #goodvibes #travel #positivethinking #meditate #time #naturephotography #sun #space #dark #beginning #spirituality #star #thirdeye #heal #creation #god #universe #earth at SOLARIS

#TachyonBeam #astronomy #astrobiology #Ceres #NASA #Dawn #ErnutetCrater In the course of the Conference of the American Astronomical Society’s 49th Division for Planetary Sciences Meeting, SwRI (Southwest Research Institute) scientist Simone Marchi presented the results of a study on the origin of the organic compounds discovered on the dwarf planet Ceres by NASA's Dawn space probe. There were some doubts about the possibility they had formed on Ceres but according to Marchi and his team the evidence they collected that's the most likely theory.

@astrodaily1 When asked which planet is their favorite, most people answer quickly with one other than our own. In my opinion, there is no spectacle greater than planet Earth from space. One of the most important benefits derived from the space program has nothing to do with technological advances, but is simply the view of our own planet swimming in the emptiness of space. Being able to see Earth as an integral part of the solar system has contributed greatly to our understanding of the forces that make it what it is today. Learning about complex weather patterns, climatic changes, and the unparalleled power of plate tectonics, we are unraveling the enigma that is Earth's history.

Were there mega floods on Mars? We’re not sure what caused the boulder distribution, but graduate student Steven Sholes (ESS/AB) is trying to get to the bottom of it. He uses LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) to “see through” vegetation on boulders in eastern WA to try to understand what happened to the boulders on Mars. #GeologyRocks #BoulderOn #universityofwashington #astrobiology #megafloods #planetaryscience #wateronmars #remotesensing

Megarachne was an eurypterid discovered in Late Carboniferous-aged freshwater strata in San Luis, Argentina. Originally described in 1980, it was wrongly identified as a mygalomorph spider based on the shape of its carapace among other things. It wasn't until 2005 that a second, more complete specimen was recovered from the same locality that it was concluded that it was not a spider at all, but in fact a large "sea scorpion" eurypterid. #paleontology #dinosaur #dino #dinosaurs #dinos #sauropod #paleomeme #Thalassocnus #paleontologymemes #paleontology #dinosaur #dino #dinosaurs #dinos #sauropod #paleomeme #fish #leedsichthys #paleontologymemes #eotyrannus #armadillosuchus #astrobiology #daspletosaurus #titanosuchus #speculativeevolution #megarachne #stethacanthus #speculativebiology #wuerhosaurus #tupandactylus #darwiniv #darwin4 #groveback #euchambersia #arrowtongue #megaraptor

Meaning "Tupan finger," in reference to the Tupi thunder god, Tupandactylus is a genus of tapejarid pterodactyloid pterosaur from the Early Cretaceous Crato Formation of Brazil. Similarly to the modern day toucan, it used its massive semicircular crest to signal and display for others of the species. Although predominantly depicted as a piscivore, it has been suggested that Tupandactylus could have been a frugivore. It had a wingspan of five meters. #paleontology #dinosaur #dino #dinosaurs #dinos #sauropod #paleomeme #Thalassocnus #paleontologymemes #paleontology #dinosaur #dino #dinosaurs #dinos #sauropod #paleomeme #fish #leedsichthys #paleontologymemes #eotyrannus #armadillosuchus #astrobiology #daspletosaurus #titanosuchus #speculativeevolution #stethacanthus #speculativebiology #wuerhosaurus #tupandactylus #darwiniv #darwin4 #groveback #euchambersia #arrowtongue #megaraptor

Wuerhosaurus is a genus of stegosauroid from the Early Cretaceous period of China and Mongolia. A likely broad-bodied animal, W. homheni's estimated length has been placed around 23 feet (7 m) and its weight at four tons, with the smaller W. ordosensis at around 16 and a half feet and 1.2 tons. Because only a sparse scattering of remains have been discovered, its dorsal plates were at first thought to have been much rounder or flatter than other stegosaurids, which was later established to be an illusion caused by breakage. It was also lower to the ground than most other stegosaurids, meaning it was specialized for feeding on low-growing vegetation. #paleontology #dinosaur #dino #dinosaurs #dinos #sauropod #paleomeme #Thalassocnus #paleontologymemes #paleontology #dinosaur #dino #dinosaurs #dinos #sauropod #paleomeme #fish #leedsichthys #paleontologymemes #eotyrannus #armadillosuchus #astrobiology #daspletosaurus #titanosuchus #speculativeevolution #stethacanthus #speculativebiology #wuerhosaurus #tupandactylus #darwiniv #darwin4 #groveback #euchambersia #arrowtongue #megaraptor

Stethacanthus is an extinct genus of shark-lke Holocephalian which lived from the Late Devonian to Early Carboniferous, dying out around 323.2 million years ago. It was characterized by its unusually shaped dorsal fin, which was covered in enlarged dermal denticles. This crest may have played a role in mating, defense, or attachment to larger creatures, among other possible uses. Considering its small size it likely fed on small fish, brachiopods, and crinoid ossicles, not unlike other sharks of its time. #paleontology #dinosaur #dino #dinosaurs #dinos #sauropod #paleomeme #Thalassocnus #paleontologymemes #paleontology #dinosaur #dino #dinosaurs #dinos #sauropod #paleomeme #fish #leedsichthys #paleontologymemes #eotyrannus #armadillosuchus #astrobiology #daspletosaurus #titanosuchus #speculativeevolution #stethacanthus #speculativebiology #wuerhosaurus #tupandactylus #darwiniv #darwin4 #groveback #euchambersia #arrowtongue #megaraptor

Hello there, fellow Inquirers! We're back with a new video in which we explore what conditions a planet needs to satisfy so life can emerge and thrive on it. The sheer number of stars and planets associated with them just within the boundaries of our galaxy is completely inconceivable, but why is life, at least in its intelligent forms, so hard to find? What makes our planet so special and unique in the Cosmos as currently known to us? Find out by following the link in our bio and watching the latest video on our YouTube channel.

The cratered surface and presence of wrinkle-ridges on the planet Mercury are indicative of an active geologic past. Flood volcanism covered a majority of the small planet with smooth plains of basaltic rock. Other evidence of past volcanism are extinct volcanic vents and irregular-shaped depressions that are thought to be collapsed magma chambers. The most impressive tectonic feature of Mercury are ridges that are the result of planet-wide contraction associated with planetary cooling. The presence of these ridges on top of craters tell us that these compressive forces occurred more recently than most of the bombardment. Mercury is the least understood of all terrestrial planets, and continued research will help us understand planetary evolution.

[Artists Impression] Before reading this post, go ahead and check out @yourdailyuniverse another amazing space account! Black holes are not entirely black. Rather, they do in fact emit a stream of particles or radiation called Hawking Radiation. To understand what Hawking Radiation is, you must first understand something about quantum physics. Empty space is not entirely empty. Rather, on the smallest scales, particles pop in and out of existence. These particles, called virtual particles, pop into existence as antiparticle pairs. One with a positive charge and the other with a negative charge. Normally these particles annihilate each other almost immediately. However, this is not always the case with a black hole. The immense energy of a black hole creates antiparticle pairs just before the event horizon. The energy is so intense that some of of it is converted into matter via E=MC^2. The antiparticle pairs pop into existence, yet they do not annihilate each other. Rather, the immense gravity of the black hole pulls them apart. The negative particle falls inward while the positive particle escapes out into space. The stream of these particles is the Hawking Radiation. Because the negative particle has fallen into the black hole, it's mass will begin to decrease. Over many billions or even trillions of years the black hole will evaporate away entirely.

This artist's impression shows a binary neutron star system. This gravitational pirouette cannot last forever. As time goes on, the orbital period of the stars steadily becomes shorter, ultimately leading to a neutron star merger. The coalescence of two neutron stars is a well-known source of gravitational waves, but it is thought by many astronomers to produce something else as well: gold. Scientists have found that the relative abundance of gold in our solar system is higher than can be forged in stars or by the Big Bang itself. It has been proposed that gold and other neutron-rich heavy elements might be made as a result of neutron-rich stars colliding and exploding. If you are currently wearing gold jewelry, take a moment to consider that it may have been created in an ultra-high gravitational environment. Have a great week!

M45 Pleiades (The Seven Sisters) Constellation: Taurus Right ascension: 3h 47m 24s Declination: +24° 7′ Distance: 444 ly on average (136.2±1.2) Apparent magnitude:1.6 Apparent dimensions (V): 110' (arcmin.) Other designations: M45, Seven Sisters, Melotte 22 Pleiades Seven Sisters (Messier 45 or M45), is an open star cluster containing middle-aged hot B-type stars located in the constellation of Taurus. It is among the nearest star clusters to Earth and is the cluster most obvious to the naked eye in the night sky. The celestial entity has several meanings in different cultures and traditions. The cluster is dominated by hot blue and extremely luminous stars that have formed within the last 100 million years. Dust that forms a faint reflection nebulosity around the brightest stars was thought at first to be left over from the formation of the cluster (hence the alternative name Maia Nebula after the star Maia), but is now known to be an unrelated dust cloud in the interstellar medium, through which the stars are currently passing. Computer simulations have shown that the Pleiades was probably formed from a compact configuration that resembled the Orion Nebula. Astronomers estimate that the cluster will survive for about another 250 million years, after which it will disperse due to gravitational interactions with its galactic neighborhood. @nasa #Nasa #ISS #Galaxy #Space #Cosmos #SpaceShuttle #Nebula #Hubble #Universe #Astronomy #ISRO #Astronomer #Pleiades #Astrophysics #Science #Physics #Stars #Planet #Astronaut #Constellation #Interstellar #Spacetravel #Outerspace #Instaspace #esa #Instafollow #Astrobiology #Telescope #Stargazing #Starstuff

A TRANSIÇÃO PLANETÁRIA E O CANSAÇO NAS PESSOAS . LABAREDAS SOLARES, FURACÕES, TEMPESTADES DE RADIAÇÃO. A Terra é dotada de um sistema de linhas de força chamado de Campo Eletromagnético, que associa forças elétricas com forças magnéticas. A ciência já comprovou que os seres vivos (minerais, vegetais, animais e humanos), recebem fortes interferências do Campo Eletromagnético da Terra, da Lua, dos planetas e do doador de fótons o Sol, então fica perceptível que devemos buscar equilíbrio e harmonia com a grade Eletromagnética terrena para que a nossa saúde física, emocional e mental esteja harmônica. Cientistas da lavra do Dr. Sérgio Felipe de Oliveira destacam também que nossos cérebros são receptores de ondas eletromagnéticas através da 'antena' chamada glândula pineal que transforma essas ondas em respostas psíquicas, químicas, físicas e metafísicas, e como consequência, nossas consciências poderão ser impactadas por tais eventos. Por isso a necessidade de atenção em suas reações emocionais e tomadas de decisão, especialmente aqueles que são muito sensíveis à energia. . É primordial que sejamos todos medianeiros/intérpretes da paz, do entendimento, nos colocando no lugar do nosso próximo, ao sabermos que todos nós somos afetados por tais Tempestades Solares. Abracemo-nos e sigamos juntos amenizando dores e conflitos, para mostrarmos que nossas atitudes se coadunam na valoração de um mundo melhor, em consonância com a tão propalada nova era, que caberá a cada um construir em si mesmo para se refletir em toodos os seres viventes ! #goodvibes #solarradiationmanagement #magnetc #attraction #gravitationalattraction #elenin #cronobiologia #astrobiology #extrasolarplanet

"Man needs difficulties; they are necessary for health"-Carl Jung. Negative emotion is a form of thinking. It is what you feel immediately when you encounter something you don't understand. By learning to embrace this feeling, you can completely transform your learning process. Today, approach something difficult with a willingness to accept the negative emotions it might induce. Learning is a painful process, and nothing takes more skill and time than maximizing your learning efficiency. This collisional landscape is known as Arp 273; with old, red stars at the center and young, blue stars around the perimeter. The illumination of filaments of gas and dust define the distorted spiral arms. Both distant galaxies and closer stars can be seen as well.

Eotyrannus is a tyrannosauroid theropod from the Early Cretaceous Wessex Formation beds located in the United Kingdom. Primitive Tyrannosauroidea characteristics, such as elongated neck vertebrae and long, well-developed arms are prevalent within the genus, proving that the tyrannosaurs were not always huge and powerful carnivores, but had their origins in the realms of laster, lightweight hunters. Its name, meaning "dawn tyrant," references the animal's classification as an early tyrannosaur. Because the skeleton is of a juvenile, it cannot be said with absolute certainty how large Eotyrannus grew. #paleontology #dinosaur #dino #dinosaurs #dinos #sauropod #paleomeme #Thalassocnus #paleontologymemes #paleontology #dinosaur #dino #dinosaurs #dinos #sauropod #paleomeme #fish #leedsichthys #paleontologymemes #eotyrannus #armadillosuchus #astrobiology #daspletosaurus #speculativeevolution #speculativebiology #darwiniv #darwin4 #groveback #euchambersia #arrowtongue #megaraptor

Armadillosuchus was a sphagesaurid crocodylomorph that is known to have lived in what is now Brazil during the Late Cretaceous. It shares a number of mammal-like features in its teeth and jaws, most notably the flexible, banded, body armor that lined its back in a similar fashion to modern armadillos. Despite this, Armadillosuchus is completely unrelated to mammals. It was discovered in 2009. #paleontology #dinosaur #dino #dinosaurs #dinos #sauropod #paleomeme #Thalassocnus #paleontologymemes #paleontology #dinosaur #dino #dinosaurs #dinos #sauropod #paleomeme #fish #leedsichthys #paleontologymemes #armadillosuchus #astrobiology #daspletosaurus #speculativeevolution #speculativebiology #darwiniv #darwin4 #groveback #euchambersia #arrowtongue #megaraptor #shark

Looking deep into the dusty center of our Milky Way galaxy, Hubble Space Telescope reveals over a half a million stars in this infrared image. Except for the few blue stars in the foreground, the stars are part of the Milky Way's nuclear star cluster, the densest and most massive star cluster in our galaxy. Located at the very center of our galaxy, the star cluster surrounds the Milky Way's central supermassive black hole, Sagittarius A*. Supermassive black holes are found in the center of almost all massive galaxies, and are usually on the order of hundreds of thousands to billions of solar masses.

"No, our science is no illusion. But an illusion it would be to suppose that what science cannot give us we can get elsewhere."-Sigmund Freud. I have been thinking a lot lately about how the process and results of science have changed human beings psychologically. I think it is truly remarkable that we have even been able to comprehend/accept the results of our science. What we have learned about the cosmos, the Earth, our biology, and subatomic physics over the past 200 years is terrifying. The ability to test and accept these powerful theories is a showing of human intellectual and psychological strength. We find a way to take results that should frighten us, and let them inspire us. The inspiration and insight gained from scientific endeavors make them the most valuable tool we have. Image shows spiral galaxy M81 through the wispy gas filaments of the Integrated Flux Nebula.

Leedsichthys is a member of an extinct croup of Mesozoic ray-finned fish known as Pachycormidae that lived during the Middle Jurassic period. It is the largest bony fish to have ever been discovered. The unusual proportions and poor preservation of the animal have given way to a wide range of possible sizes, sometimes estimated to be as long as 115 feet (35 m), although more reasonable estimates have approximated between 23 and 49 feet. It is for this reason that it was given its species name, "problematicus." Like the whale shark today, Leedsichthys obtained food using an array of gill rakers lining its gill basket to extract zooplankton from the water. #paleontology #dinosaur #dino #dinosaurs #dinos #sauropod #paleomeme #Thalassocnus #paleontologymemes #paleontology #dinosaur #dino #dinosaurs #dinos #sauropod #paleomeme #fish #leedsichthys #paleontologymemes #astrobiology #daspletosaurus #speculativeevolution #speculativebiology #darwiniv #darwin4 #groveback #euchambersia #arrowtongue #megaraptor #shark

Daspletosaurus, meaning "frightful lizard," was a tyrannosaurid that lived in western North America during the Late Cretaceous period. Though not as large as the more recent and closely related Tyrannosaurus, it was an apex predator that likely preyed on large dinosaurs like Centrosaurus and Hypacrosaurus. There are indications of Daspletosaurus possessing integumentary sensory organs, including but not limited to touch, jaw movement modulation, temperature reading, and prey detection. It has been suggested that Daspletosaurus social interaction would have closely mirrored the modern Komodo dragon, where non-cooperative individuals mob carcasses, frequently attacking and even cannibalizing each other in the process. #paleontology #dinosaur #dino #dinosaurs #dinos #sauropod #paleomeme #paleontologymemes #paleontology #dinosaur #dino #dinosaurs #dinos #sauropod #paleomeme #paleontologymemes #astrobiology #daspletosaurus #speculativeevolution #speculativebiology #darwiniv #darwin4 #groveback #euchambersia #arrowtongue #megaraptor #shark

Fomalhaut is a class A star on the main sequence that lies approx. 25 light-years from Earth. This star draws the interest of astronomers as it is known to be orbited by at least one planet, as well as several dust and ice disks. This recent image from the ALMA telescope shows an outer ice ring that is spectacularly distinct. The pink ice ring is superposed over a Hubble image of the Fomalhaut system. Leading theories propose that violent collisions of planetesimals and icy comets led to the formation of the ring, and the gravitational influence of planets within the system holds the ring boundaries. Scientists also hypothesize that the unseen planets within the Fomalhaut system are being continually bombarded by objects that are ejected from these rings. This could be similar to four billion years ago in our own solar system, during a period we call the Late Heavy Bombardment.

#TachyonBeam #astronomy #astrobiology #NASA #Mars #MRO #Eridania An article published in the journal "Nature Communications" describes the discovery of evidence of the existence of very ancient hydrothermal deposits on a seabed in the Eridania region on Mars. A team of researchers studied data collected by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) space probe to reconstruct the presence of massive deposits in a basin in the red planet's southern hemisphere. It's a type of environment favorable to the birth of life forms, similar to that in which scientists think life on Earth was born.

This spud's about twice as old as Richard. You can see the endosomoids ("endosome-like") have almost entirely finished migrating to form the nascent gliome. Also shows chromatic shift extends to slime coat. Named him Horace. #antarctica #osmium_glass #shoggoth #cellbiology #operation_wormstar #topsecretwar #cthulhu #mountainsofmadness #glassblowing #glassofig #glassart #glassblowharder #astrobiology #exobiology #pyrex #confunctional #confunctionalart #northstarglass #absinthe #yogsothoth #blacklodge #rocketship_belgrano #blueprint_for_enceladus #stargate_yuggoth at Antarctica

Messing around with this one last night, settling in. Got to keep them moist. First rules are that there is no naming them, never handle without full PPE and maintain psionic shield/impartiality at all times. I'm calling this one Richard. #antarctica #osmium_glass #awesomesauce #salinesolution_molokoplus #shoggoth_culture #cellbiology #operation_wormstar #topsecretwar #cthulhu #mountainsofmadness #glassblowing #glassofig #glassart #glassblowharder #astrobiology #exobiology #pyrex #confunctional #confunctionalart #yogsothoth #blacklodge #rocketship_belgrano #blueprint_for_enceladus #stargate_yuggoth at Antarctica

Dino of the Day: Wiwaxia Wiwaxia is a genus consisting of small, soft-bodied animals that were covered in carbonaceous scales and spines. Utop its bilaterally symmetrical body it was decorated in eight rows of small ribbed armor plates known as sclerites, with its flat underside being soft and unprotected; each sclerite was rooted individually in the body in small pockets in the skin, similarly to the follicles of mammalian hair. The long dorsal spines it possessed may have been used as a defense mechanism against predators. Wiwaxia was herbivorous, and trudged slowly along the ocean floor, consuming sludge. #paleontology #dinosaur #dino #dinosaurs #dinos #sauropod #paleomeme #meiolania #paleontologymemes #wiwaxia #paleontology #dinosaur #dino #dinosaurs #dinos #sauropod #paleomeme #paleontologymemes #astrobiology #speculativeevolution #speculativebiology #darwiniv #darwin4 #groveback #euchambersia #arrowtongue #megaraptor #shark

A cosmic butterfly with a wingspan of three light-years. NGC 6302, also known as the 'Butterfly Nebula', is the result of a star expelling off its outer layers of gas at the end of its lifetime. Giving off massive amounts of ultraviolet radiation, the star illuminates its surrounding gas and dust. The dying central star has a staggering temperature of approx. 250,000 degrees Celsius.

Photons have 0 mass but they still feel the effects of gravity. According to Newton's gravity, the force of gravity on particle that has 0 mass would be zero, and so gravity should not affect light. In fact, according to Newton's gravity Black holes should not exist: no matter how strong gravity is, light would always be able to escape. However, we know that Newton's gravity is only correct under certain circumstances, when particles travel much slower than the speed of light, and when gravity is weak. This is certainly not the case near a black hole! When we try to understand how black holes work we need to consider the more general law of gravity which is Einstein's General Relativity. According to General Relativity, gravity is not a force. On the contrary, gravity just affects how distances are measured, and says what shape has the "shortest" path from one place to another. All particles then follow these "shortest path" routes in their motion. Notice that nowhere so far have I mentioned mass, this rule applies for all matter and energy, whether they have mass or not It turns out that very close to the black hole, these shortest paths never cross the event horizon. As a result neither light nor anything less can escape from the gravity field of a black hole. #astronomy #astronomer #astrophysics #space #cosmos #science #physics #universe #stars #planet #astronaut #constellation #interstellar #spacetravel #outerspace #sun #chandra #astrobiology #NASA #Hubble #telescope #galaxy #stargazing #starstuff #creation #photography #astrophotography #amazing #explore #nasabeyond (Image credit: NASA)

A proud Astrobiologist! Yesterday we had fun designing our own planets for our solar system at our Astrobiology K-2 mini-camp! We talked about conditions for life, types of planets, gravity, orbits, volcanoes, pizza, black holes, and much much more! #halfdaySTEAM #astrobiology #redhooklibrary at Red Hook Public Library

Blue supergiants 💙 . . Blue supergiants (BSGs) are hot luminous stars, referred to scientifically as OB supergiants. They have luminosity class I and spectral class B9 or earlier. They are found towards the top left of the Hertzsprung–Russell diagram to the right of the main sequence. They are larger than the Sun but smaller than a red supergiant, with surface temperatures of 10,000–50,000 K and luminosities from about 10,000 to a million times the Sun. Supergiants are evolved high-mass stars, larger and more luminous than main-sequence stars. O class and early B class stars with initial masses around 10-100 M☉ evolve away from the main sequence in just a few million years as their hydrogen is consumed and heavy elements start to appear near the surface of the star. These stars usually become blue supergiants, although it is possible that some of them evolve directly to Wolf–Rayet stars. Blue supergiants newly evolved from the main sequence have extremely high luminosities, high mass loss rates, and are generally unstable. Many of them become luminous blue variables with episodes of extreme mass loss. Lower mass blue supergiants continue to expand until they become red supergiants. In the process they obviously must spend some time as yellow supergiants or yellow hypergiants, but this expansion occurs in just a few thousand years and so these stars are rare. Higher mass red supergiants blow away their outer atmospheres and evolve back to blue supergiants, and possibly onwards to Wolf–Rayet stars.Depending on the exact mass and composition of a red supergiant, it can execute a number of blue loops before either exploding as a type II supernova or finally dumping enough of its outer layers to become a blue supergiant again, less luminous than the first time but more unstable. If such a star can pass through the yellow evolutionary void it is expected that it becomes one of the lower luminosity LBVs.
