NASA’s Juno mission has once again stunned us with jaw-dropping images of Jupiter and its moon, Ganymede. Scientists are impressed by an image of Jupiter in its crescent phase. The photo was taken when NASA’s Juno spacecraft approached the giant planet during a regular close pass. Jupiter’s crescent shape can never be captured by telescopes …

CSIRO gave us a little treat this week – they uploaded 10 of their favorite images collected through ASKAP data. Of course, no matter what medium you view this article in, it won’t do them justice, but these images are amazing and should be shared nonetheless. But before you see ASKAP photos, you should probably …

A new image from NASA Hubble has shown a colorful spiral galaxy that has an explosive past. Apart from this, NASA Hubble Space Telescope and Chandra Observatory also captured the burning wings of the so-called Butterfly Nebula. NASA’s Hubble image shows stunning view of massive spiral galaxy To further emphasize this spiral galaxy, the space …

This image shows two of Jupiter’s large rotating storms, captured by Juno’s visible light imager, … [+] JunoCam, on the 38th Juno Perijove Pass, November 29, 2021.

“When you have satellites in space, you can take a photo anywhere in the world, not just your backyard or your area, anytime, and that ability is quite deep and extraordinary, ”says Robbie Schingler, co-founder and director of the strategy of the satellite data company Planet Laboratoires. Schingler sees the company as an agent of …

Named b Centauri (AB) b (or b Centauri b), the new exoplanet is estimated to be only 15 million years old and 10 times the mass of Jupiter, according to an analysis of data collected by the high-contrast spectro-polarimetric exoplanet . Finding aid (SPHERE) mounted on ESO’s Very Large Telescope (VLT). Artist’s impression of b …

Students and professors of theBYU’s Department of Astronomy and Physics captured images from space at an observatory in New Mexico to conduct research explaining the evolution of the universe.

NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory has spotted evidence of a possible planet located in another galaxy – a one-of-a-kind find if it turns out to be true. NASA detailed the discovery of the evidence in a new report on its website where it states that the possible exoplanet is located in the spiral galaxy Messier 51, …

Evidence of a possible planet orbiting a star beyond the Milky Way galaxy has been spotted, NASA has revealed. NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory made the discovery, allowing further studies of exoplanets further away than ever before, a statement posted on the US space agency’s website said. This possible candidate exoplanet is located in the spiral …

With the charming name of SDSS J0146-0929, it is a cluster of galaxies – a monstrous collection of hundreds of galaxies all chained together in the unwavering grip of gravity. The mass of this galaxy cluster is large enough to seriously distort the spacetime around it, creating weird, looping curves that almost encircle the center …

Enlarge | ESO displays 42 of the largest asteroids in the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter (orbits not to scale). It is the largest cluster of asteroids ever to be seen with so much detail. Notice that they are all different. Image via ESO / M. Kornmesser / Vernazza et al. / MISTRAL …

Using the Spectro-Polarimetric High Contrast Exoplanet REsearch (SPHERE) instrument mounted on ESO’s Very Large Telescope (VLT), astronomers conducted a high-angular resolution imaging study of 42 large asteroids in the main asteroid belt, located between Mars and Jupiter. Their results appear in the journal Astronomy & Astrophysics. This image represents 42 of the largest objects in …

The 17 newly studied craters and depressions are located near the South Pole. While the smallest of these regions (region 11) has an area of ​​only 0.18 square kilometers, the largest (region 9) measures 54 square kilometers. Region 9 is not located in the section of the South Polar Region shown here, but a little …

The false-color mosaic shows how the Moon’s characteristics differ from each other due to its meteoric impacts and volcanic past. NASA / JPL On October 18, 1989, NASA launched the Galileo Orbiter Spaceship. En route to study Jupiter and its many moons, the Orbiter made many notable discoveries during its 2.4 billion mile space journey …

This animation shows a series of views of the Sun captured with the Extreme Ultraviolet Imager (EUI) on ESA/NASA’s Solar Orbiter on May 30, 2020. They show the appearance of the Sun at a wavelength of 17 nanometers, which is in the extreme ultraviolet region of the electromagnetic spectrum. Images at this wavelength reveal the …
