This is why I love space and science, it's terrifying and fascinating. This is bad ass! Round and round they go - then BOOM! This animation begins with the final moments of two neutron stars (the super-dense cores of exploded massive stars), whirling around each other in a galaxy 130 million light-years away. Gravitational waves (rippling disturbance in space-time, shown here as pale arcs @alberteinstein_) bleed away orbital energy, causing the stars to move closer together and merge. As the stars collide, this explosive event emits light across a series of different wavelengths - first gamma rays (magenta), then ultraviolet (violet), then visible and infrared (blue-white to red) and once the jet directed toward us expanded into our view from Earth, X-rays (blue). Our Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope witnessed this event on August 17, 2017 and we watched it unfold over multiple days with a variety of other telescopes. #space #nasa #universe #galaxy #stars #astrophysics #astronomy #science #gammarays #ultraviolet #infrared #xrays #gravitationalwaves #neutronstars #hubble #chandra #spitzer #nustar #fermi #swift #neildegrassetyson #alberteinstein

, "Tropical Volcanoes Can Trigger El Niños" According to a new study published online in the 'Nature Communications', explosive volcanic eruptions in the tropics can lead to El Niños, the warming periods in the Pacific Ocean that cause abnormal weather patterns around the globe. An El Niño is a reoccurring natural phenomenon that takes place when sea surface temperatures in the Pacific Ocean near the equator warm up. The increased ocean surface temperatures affect the air and moisture movements around the world, causing worldwide impacts on the climate. The study used climate models collected after an El Niño that happened in the same year as a large volcanic eruption that occurred at Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines in 1991. It was found that enormous volcanic eruptions can trigger El Niños by pumping millions of tons of sulfur dioxide into the stratosphere. This acts as a sulfuric acid cloud, reflecting solar radiation and reducing the average global surface temperature. Increases in sea surface temperature correlated with El Niño events recorded since 1882: Santa María in 1902, Mount Agung in 1963, El Chichón in 1982, and Pinatubo in 1991.

“The wedding band on your finger or the gold watch you’re wearing was most likely produced a billion years ago by two neutron stars colliding. That’s pretty cool.” The collision of a pair of neutron stars, marked by ripples through the fabric of space-time and a flash brighter than a billion suns, has been witnessed for the first time in the most intensely observed astronomical event to date. In the extraordinary sequence, the two ultra-dense stars spiralled inwards, violently collided and, in all likelihood, immediately collapsed into a black hole. As the stars collided, they emitted an intense beam of gamma rays and the sky was showered with heavy elements, resolving a decades-old debate about where gold and platinum come from.

M16 - The Eagle Nebula. This is another HII region near the galactic core of the Milkyway made famous by Dr. Scowen's and Dr. Hester's Hubble image of the Pillars of Creation (the dense columns of gas and dust in the heart of the nebula). The crazy thing about the Pillars of Creation is that they likely don't exist anymore. There's evidence which suggest a supernova occurred in the vicinity 6000 years ago... Being that they are about 7000 light years away, we only have 1000 more years to observe the Pillars, so enjoy em! On the other hand, we only have 1000 more years until we get to see a supernova annihilate something. The future is quite literally bright! - This is old data from last year reprocessed in Pixinsight.

#Repost @nasahubble (@get_repost) ・・・ For the first time, NASA scientists have detected light tied to a gravitational-wave event, thanks to two merging neutron stars in the galaxy NGC 4993, located about 130 million light-years from Earth in the constellation Hydra. On Aug. 17, NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope picked up a pulse of high-energy light from a powerful explosion, which was immediately reported to astronomers around the globe as a short gamma-ray burst. The scientists at the National Science Foundation’s Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory detected gravitational waves dubbed GW170817 from a pair of smashing stars tied to the gamma-ray burst, encouraging astronomers to look for the aftermath of the explosion. NASA's Swift, Hubble, Chandra and Spitzer missions, along with dozens of ground-based observatories, including the NASA-funded Pan-STARRS survey, later captured the fading glow of the blast's expanding debris. Within hours of the initial Fermi detection, LIGO and the Virgo detector at the European Gravitational Observatory near Pisa, Italy, greatly refined the event's position in the sky with additional analysis of gravitational wave data. Ground-based observatories then quickly located a new optical and infrared source -- the kilonova -- in NGC 4993. On Aug. 22, Hubble began imaging the kilonova and capturing its near-infrared spectrum, which revealed the motion and chemical composition of the expanding debris.

"Two nebula clouds on the same trajectory, bound to cross paths and partake in a cosmic collision. So magnificent, so captivating, so energetically explosive in nature; creating entire worlds in their wake. Coalescing. Becoming intertwined with one another as they are thrust into an interstellar dance, becoming so interconnected that the particles of each individual cloud become indistinguishable from one another. Vibrating as one cosmic being." -Madisson to Cassidy ✨✨✨SHINE BRIGHT LIKE A KILONOVA✨✨✨ IN CASE YOU MISSED IT. At 8:41 a.m. Eastern time on Aug. 17, a gravitational wave hit the Virgo detector in Italy. But first, let's go back to the beginning of this story. Some 130 million years ago, in a galaxy far away, the smoldering cores of two collapsed stars smashed into each other. The resulting explosion sent a burst of gamma rays streaming through space and rippled the very fabric of the universe. On Aug. 17, those signals reached Earth — and sparked an astronomy revolution. The distant collision created a “kilonova,” an astronomical marvel that scientists have never seen before. It was the first cosmic event in history to be witnessed via both traditional telescopes, which can observe electromagnetic radiation like gamma rays, and gravitational wave detectors, which sense the wrinkles in space-time produced by distant cataclysms. The detection, which involved thousands of researchers working at more than 70 laboratories and telescopes on every continent, heralds a new era in space research known as “multimessenger astrophysics.” Kilonovas are swift, brilliant explosions that occur during the merger of neutron stars, which are ultradense remnants of collapsed stars that are composed almost entirely of neutrons, or uncharged particles. Collisions between neutron stars are thought to be 1,000 times as bright as a typical nova, and they are the universe’s primary source of such elements as silver, platinum and gold. But much like gravitational waves, kilonovas have long been strictly theoretical. No scientist had ever seen one. Until this summer. -Washington Post #space #nasa #neutron #kilonova #astronomy #astrophysics #science #galaxygains #stardust

This animation begins with the final moments of two neutron stars (the super-dense cores of exploded massive stars), whirling around each other in a galaxy 130 million light-years away. Gravitational waves (rippling disturbance in space-time, shown here as pale arcs) bleed away orbital energy, causing the stars to move closer together and merge. As the stars collide, this explosive event emits light across a series of different wavelengths - first gamma rays (magenta), then ultraviolet (violet), then visible and infrared (blue-white to red) and once the jet directed toward us expanded into our view from Earth, X-rays (blue). Our Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope witnessed this event on August 17, 2017 and we watched it unfold over multiple days with a variety of other telescopes, including the Swift spacecraft, the Hubble Space Telescope (@NASAHubble), the Spitzer Space Telescope, our Chandra X-Ray Observatory (@NASAChandraXray) and our NuSTAR mission. The detectors at the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) received a gravitational wave signal just 1.7 seconds before the first light was seen by Fermi, making this the first event observed in both light and gravitational waves.

Today on October 16, 2017, astronomers have announced one of the most exciting discoveries about gravitational waves to date. They were able to observe gravitational waves and electromagnetic waves (light) from the save source! Previously, astronomers were only able to observe either one or the other, and before 2015, only just electromagnetic waves. This new way of studying the universe opens many doors to the realm of astronomy. In astronomy, electromagnetic waves (radio, gamma, and even visible) are the visuals in the field while gravitational waves are the "audio" so to speak. The two sources came from colliding neutron stars that produced a kilonova (1000x more powerful than a nova). This is only the beginning of what gravitational waves have to offer. Stay tuned 👂.
