A star exploded in a distant galaxy, and Hubble spotted it

October 3rd, 2020

NASA and the ESA have released a timelapse clip of images captured by the Hubble Space Telescope showing a supernova slowly dying far away.  The supernova took roughly a year in Earth time to go from incredibly bright to dull and dim. Whatever was orbiting the star when it detonated is probably not there anymore. …

NASA’s Hubble telescope spotted a wispy orange ribbon in space, but it’s actually the destructive blast wave of a supernova. The supernova is located in the Cygnus constellation and is roughly 2,400 light-years from Earth. Hubble has now spent over three decades imaging the cosmos and shows no signs of slowing down.

A long-dead star is still producing a spectacular supernova, and the blast is moving at incredible speeds. Some areas of the supernova blast are moving at speeds of up to 23 million miles per hour.  The explosion happened some 20,000 light-years from Earth. We know that stars have finite lifespans. Some of them just sort …

Not everyone believed the star was nearing its final act, but its …

Scientists found stardust in the most unlikely of places

Earth has managed to avoid any truly catastrophic impacts from objects in space for quite some time, but that doesn’t mean material from the cosmos doesn’t regularly rain down on our world. Scientists regularly observe rocks of varying sizes streaking through Earth’s atmosphere. Most of the time, the material that makes its way to the …

Scientists stunned after spotting record-shattering supernova

August 16th, 2019

Scientists have a pretty good handle on the life cycle of various stars. They know the types of stars that are likely to die in fiery supernova blasts, and they know that not all supernova are created equal. Still, space has many untold secrets, and a new study published in The Astrophysical Journal reveals that …
