  • Astronaut Jim Scott from Apollo 15 is shown here at the edge of Hadley Rille, a collapsed volcanic lava tube. Scientists say the moon was formed after a Mars sized object collided with the Earth 4 and a half billion years ago.

  • I took this photo with shaky hands this morning at 7 AM, trying to be optimistic that I’d look at it later and associate it with a victory. Transitioning from studio art to astrophysics has been just as challenging as you’d think. Each study extremely difficult in polar opposite ways- one comes easy to me and one I have to preface with ibuprofen before even taking a glance (😅). I failed a math test earlier this semester and it crushed my spirit- the insecurities I came into this major with were accentuated and I felt like a big ‘ole 💩. But today I took my *cumulative* final for the same math class and made a fricken 89!!! Moving forward confidently and elated to press into my calling 👩🏻‍🚀 👩🏼‍🎨 if there’s something you feel like you can’t do but you feel pulled to do... DO IT. It’s scary as all get out but I believe in you! ✨

  • 🔴Pasteles arremolinados de las nubes de Saturno.

.
Esta vista en falso color de la nave Cassini de la NASA muestra nubes en el hemisferio norte de Saturno. La vista fue producida por el entusiasta de la imagen espacial Kevin M. Gill, quien también es ingeniero en el Laboratorio de Propulsión a Chorro de la NASA.

La vista se realizó utilizando imágenes tomadas por la cámara gran angular de la Cassini el 20 de julio de 2016, utilizando una combinación de filtros espectrales sensibles a la luz infrarroja a 750, 727 y 619 nanómetros.

Filtros como estos, que son sensibles a la absorción y dispersión de la luz solar por el metano en la atmósfera de Saturno, han sido útiles durante la misión de Cassini para determinar la estructura y la profundidad de las características de las nubes en la atmósfera.

  • This picture of the spiral galaxy NGC 7331 was taken by Hubble. 
The galaxy is located 50 million light years away from Earth in the constellation Pegasus. It was frst recognized as a spiral nebula but it was later on seen as the galaxy we see in the image. The galaxy’s spiral arms feature dark obscuring dust lanes can be seen as well as the bright bluish clusters of massive young stars and the reddish glow of active star forming regions. Like our galaxy, NGC 7331 also has a supermassive black hole in the center.

  • Some information about Spinning and Non-spinning Blackhole:
.
Black holes have only 3 properties: mass, charge and spin. Astronomers have enough trouble measuring the masses of black holes; measuring charge and spin are even more difficult. How can we measure the spin of something which lacks a solid surface? One way is to measure the effects of that spin on a matter near the spinning black hole. A spinning black hole is expected to actually drag space and time along with it, to set space and time spinning. Matter located in this spacetime should show predictable effects of being in this "spinning spacetime". These effects are illustrated in the image above, which compares a non-spinning black hole on the left to a spinning black hole on the right. The upper images show the disk of the matter being accreted by the black hole. In the non-spinning case, matter falls into the black hole from a relatively far distance, but in the spinning black hole case shown in the upper left, the matter can orbit safely much closer to the black hole's event horizon. The lower panels show the effects of spin on X-rays emitted by fast-moving, hot iron atoms near the black hole. For iron atoms near a spinning black hole, the emitted X-rays are shifted to lower X-ray energies. This "iron" effect has been detected in a number of black holes by the Chandra and the XMM-Newton X-ray observatories. These observations show that some iron emission is more affected than others; evidently not all black holes spin at the same rate.

  • Uzaydaki gözümüz Hubble teleskopu, uzayın görünüşte boş olan ufacık bir bölgesine 10 yıl boyunca aralıklarla baktı. Toplamda 2 milyon saniye aynı yere bakıp 2000’in üzerinde poz çekti. Bu gördüğünüz fotoğraf bunca emeğin ürünüdür. Fornax takımyıldızında bulunan, gökyüzünde en çok gözlemlenen bölgenin fotoğrafı en ünlü Hubble fotoğraflarından biridir. Burada yaklaşık 10.000 tane gökada görüyorsunuz. Birkaç parlak yıldız hariç bu noktaların hepsi birer gökada. Bazıları ise bize bir hayli uzak. Astronomide uzak demek, geçmiş demektir. Bazen Hubble için “zaman makinesi” derler. Sebebi işte budur. Ne kadar uzağa bakarsanız o kadar geçmişi görürsünüz. Hubble bu ultra derin alan fotoğrafında şimdiye kadar gözlemlenen en eski gökadaları, yaklaşık 13 milyar yıl önce evrende ışığın ortaya çıkmasından hemen sonra oluşan gökadaları gördü. Büyük çoğunlukla görünür ışıkta, biraz da kızılötesi ve morötesi ışıkta alınan bu fotoğraftaki en sönük gökada, insan gözünün çıplak gözle görebileceğinden 10 milyar kat daha sönük. 
İkinci görsel bu alanın Ay’a kıyasla gökyüzünde ne kadar yer kapladığını gösteriyor. O ufacık bölgede bu kadar gökada, her gökadada milyonlarca yıldız, her bir yıldızın çevresinde birkaç tane gezegen... Açıklama: @gokorion

  • POP O’ THE WEEK 2019 (wk 18) - Happy May Day everyone! It’s the first day of May, which means it’s the perfect time to make Brian May from Queen the Pop O’ The Week!
I’ve always been into music, but I wouldn’t say I’m really into very many bands. Even a band like The Smashing Pumpkins, who I’ve listened to forever, isn’t something I’d call myself a real expert on. I’m sure there’s lots of people out there who know more than I do. When it comes to Queen, I really only know the very basics. Of course I know some of their songs, I appreciate how unique they were, and everybody knows who Freddie Mercury was, but I’ve always been interested in Brian May. “Always” is probably a bit of a stretch, but I’ve been fascinated by him for a few years now.
It’s always cool when you learn someone isn’t just a “stereotypical musician”. Even if they’re really good at what they do, there’s still a “type”, and it’s not something I’m particularly interested in. Brian May first stood out to me in a picture, just because of his hair. I’ll admit I was like, “Wow, that guy definitely looks like he’s from another era.” So I looked him up, and it turns out he’s nothing like what I’d expected! First of all, he’s super smart. The guy’s an actual astrophysicist. He plays a home made guitar. He’s devoted to animal welfare, AND he’s written a lot of songs that almost everyone can name. He’s not just a band geek, but he’s a proper nerd to boot, and I think that’s really cool! 
I’m sure this doesn’t sum him up properly, but like I said, I’m not an expert. I haven’t even seen Bohemian Rhapsody yet. But certain people just catch my interest, and Brian May is one of those people. Oh, and he still has his crazy Isaac Newton hair today! How’s that for physics? #popotheweek2019 #queen #brianmay #pop #funko #popvinyl #funkopop #vinyltoys #poprocks #mayday #astrophysics #rockandroll #may1st #bohemianrhapsody

  • Black hole devouring a star. What do you think? 🌀☀️
• • • • • •
On March 28, 2011, NASA's Swift detected intense X-ray flares thought to be caused by a black hole devouring a star. In one model, illustrated here, a sun-like star on an eccentric orbit plunges too close to its galaxy's central black hole. About half of the star's mass feeds an accretion disk around the black hole, which in turn powers a particle jet that beams radiation toward Earth.

Astronomlar, galaksimizde yaklaşık 100 milyar yıldız olduğunu hesaplıyorlar. Evrende ise bizimkisi gibi 10 trilyon civarında galaksi bulunuyor. Bu, toplamda 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 yıldız demektir. Bunların. %7.6'sı, Güneş'imiz gibi G tipi yıldız. 2018 verilerine göre her G tipi yıldız etrafında en az 1 adet gezegen bulunuyor. Yani Evrende, etrafında en az 1 gezegen bulunan 76,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 yıldız var demektir. NASA'nın Kepler verilerine göre bunların %25'i kadarı kayalık gezegenler ve yıldızlarının yaşama uygun bölgesi içinde bulunuyorlar. Yani oralarda bir yerde, bizimkisi gibi bir gezegeni sistemi içinde barındıran 19,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 yıldız bulunuyor. Ancak o gezegenlerden kaçında yaşam olduğunu hesaplamamızı sağlayacak verilerden yoksunuz. Uzayda yaşam bulursak, bunu da hesaplayabileceğiz. 
O gezegenlerden kaçında Evrende yalnız olduğunu düşünen zeki yaşam formları var dersiniz? Kaçı gökyüzüne bakıp, acaba orada bir yerlerde yaşam var mı diye düşünüyor dersiniz? 📹: @nasahubble heritage archive / SSAM - Engine
