Hubble may have saved its most gorgeous photo for last this year

December 31st, 2020

NASA’s powerful Hubble Space Telescope and Spitzer Space Telescope combined to captured stunning images of the Orion Nebula. The nebula, which is a massive mixture of various gases and heated matter surrounding young stars, was shot in various wavelengths.  The image looks like a painting, but it’s actually a thing that exists, reminding us how …

This massive cosmic butterfly is pure galactic eye candy

July 31st, 2020

Astronomers at the European Southern Observatory have captured the most detailed images yet of a planetary nebula that looks like a brightly colored butterfly. The impressive shape is made of gasses in space, surrounding a pair of stars. Scientists believe one of the stars recently blew its top, sending gasses flying and creating the unique …

These new Hubble images are absolutely bonkers

June 19th, 2020

The Hubble Space Telescope captured new images of familiar planetary nebulae using a different camera for the first time. The result is a stunning glimpse of both NGC 7027 and the Butterfly Nebula, NGC 6302, both of which are in the midst of stellar death. Hubble has viewed these nebulae before but never with this …

NASA spots ‘Space Butterfly’ giving birth to new stars

March 27th, 2019

Our Sun is one of the big reasons we’re all here today. It provides much of the energy needed for life to exist, and without it I wouldn’t be writing this and you wouldn’t be here to read it. We think of stars as ancient things that have been there forever but new ones are …

This is what a star looks like when it dies

January 23rd, 2019

Our Sun is one of the reasons we’re all here today and we simply couldn’t exist without it, but it won’t be around forever. At some point far in the future our Sun will die, and when it does it’ll probably look a lot like this image captured by the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large …

NASA spies big space bubbles forming around newborn stars

October 23rd, 2018

NASA’s Hubble telescope might still be snapping out of a gyroscope-induced funk, but the space agency’s other powerful space-gazing lenses are still working just fine. In a new post, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory is showcasing a truly stunning image captured by the Spitzer Space Telescope, which peered into the Milky Way to spot the Cat’s …

Hubble captures mysterious nebula in gorgeous new image

September 3rd, 2018

You might think that with so many telescopes at its disposal NASA and the astronomy community at large would have plenty of time to gaze at whatever they want, but space is just so big that even some of the most interesting anomalies in the sky fall through the cracks. What you see in the …

Outer space has way better fireworks than we ever will

July 4th, 2018

Well, it’s the Fourth of July, which means sunburns, cookouts, and lots of questionable fuses being lit from coast to coast. But whether you’ll be waving some sparklers or going to a full-on professional fireworks show, nothing really compares to the dazzling lights in our own sky. NASA decided to remind us all of that …

space cloud

This ‘singing’ space cloud is where stars and planets are born

May 11th, 2018

Long before our Sun formed it was nothing more than a bunch of material floating listlessly in a large cloud of gas, dust, and debris. These space clouds, called nebulas, are where stars and planets are born, eventually coalescing into larger bodies which become slaves to gravity and form systems such as the one we …
