Time for weekly news with @WSHCrew about Artemis 1, asymmetry in galaxy distribution, Mars occultation by Moon, gamma ray burst, and discussion with Dr. Karl Stapelfeldt about the science of hourglass/butterfly of L1527 amazing structured.
How do astronomers measure extremely large distances in the far away corners of the Universe? So this would be the top step on the cosmic distance ladder.
With a groundbreaking technique, astronomers have used a galaxy as a gravitational lens to backlight two hydrogen clouds, peering back 11 billion light-years at our early universe
Dr. Jen covers all the different types of galaxies! Find out what makes a galaxy, how they form, how they die and how we know what our galaxy looks like when we can’t leave it to look back on it.
There is evidence of rotation in a galaxy which existed just 500 million years after the Big Bang. This is the earliest galaxy we’ve found with possible rotation! This young galaxy rotates more slowly than modern galaxies, but maybe it’s on its way to gaining more speed.
An international team of astronomers found a dwarf galaxy in the outskirts of the Andromeda Galaxy, M31, located over 2.5 million light-years from us. However, the ultra-faint dwarf galaxy, now called Pegasus V, was first spotted by a very attentive amateur astronomer Giuseppe Donatiello, of UAI, the Unione Astrofili Italiani.
How do giant black holes shut off star formation? How do they turn it back on? Which came first, the black hole or the galaxy? I discuss these questions and more in today’s Ask a Spaceman!
Time for your June sky guide and news round up with @AwesomeAstroPod. This month we have A companion star that survived a supernova, dark matter stripped away in galaxies, and of course the image of Sagittarius A*.
News round-up with @WSHCrew this week will cover various topic including cosmic rays as earthquake detection, rare galaxies forming stars, James Webb, machine learning for exoplanet cartography, solar flares, and Event Horizon Telescope.
Time for @AwesomeAstroPod news round-up and skyguide. We have JWST, new type of nebula, detecting life in Europa, exoplanet around dead star, galaxy with no dark matter and more. #365DaysOfAstro
