“That's here. That's home. That's us.” – Carl Sagan Seeing Earth from space can alter an astronauts’ cosmic perspective, a mental shift known as the “Overview Effect.” First coined by space writer Frank White in 1987, the Overview Effect is described as a feeling of awe for our home planet and a sense of responsibility for taking care of it. See Earth from the vantage point of our astronauts in these perspective-changing views. Credit: NASA #nasa #space #science #earth

The image you're looking at was shot by @nasahubble in late 2016. It features comet 332P shattering into multiple pieces.⁣ ⁣ The large object towards the lower left is the main body of the comet. The smaller objects towards the center are all pieces that have broken off. Although small is relative here; these pieces are all still dozens to hundreds of meters in diameter.⁣ ⁣ The fact that comets sometimes disintegrate was/is not exactly news. The reason why this happens however, is still a complete mistery. The problem is that comets are (astronomically speaking) pretty small objects and these disintegrations seem to happen very quickly and without any signs that it's about to happen, making observations difficult and rare.⁣ ⁣ What we currently know is that comets lose their ice contents slowly as they make more and more orbits around the sun (the ice melting off when the comet is closest to the sun). Once all the ice is gone, you're left with a rocky core and that's that. Evidently, there seems to be more going on with the structural composition and integrity than this. Future observations and studies will hopefully slowly unravel this mystery.⁣ ⁣ #astronomer #astronomy #science #space #astrophysics #universe #Cosmos #telescope #galaxy #milkyway #photography #spacetime #spacetravel #physics #AstroPhotography #Interstellar #nebula #Astronomie #Stars #deepspace #deepsky #nightsky #nasa #spacex #photooftheday #picoftheday #naturephotography #stargazing

Flying through a fire cloud ☁️🔥☁️⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ This photo from roughly 30,000 ft (9 km) shows how smoke particles reflect light in ways that make the Sun appear blazing orange. Our DC-8 flying laboratory passed directly through a large fire cloud — called a pyrocumulonimbus — on August 8 as it was rising from a fire in eastern Washington, giving scientists a look at the phenomena. These clouds form when the intense heat of wildfires lift the smoke above the boundary layer, the lowest part of Earth's atmosphere.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ The flight was part of a joint NOAA and NASA field campaign called FIREX-AQ. Scientists are studying the composition and chemistry of smoke in the atmosphere to better understand its impact on air quality and climate.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ NASA Earth Observatory image credit: NASA/Joshua Stevens⁣⁣ Photography credits: U.S. Naval Research Laboratory/David Peterson⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ #nasa #wildfires #science #Clouds #fires #ourplanet

IC 1396 is an emission nebula in the Cepheus constellation, around 2400 light years from earth.⁣ ⁣ At around 100 light years in diameter, this is a fairly sizeable nebula and hence several sections of it also have their own designation. On the right side of the image you'll see IC 1396A, commonly known as "The Elephant's Trunk nebula"; which on its own already spans 20 light years across. There are several more similar sections scattered throughout the nebula. So what is giving them this specific form/look?⁣ ⁣ As is often the case, the nebula is populated with a good amount (around 250) of very young and active stars and a few hypergiants (among which the very one which I talked about yesterday). The combined stellar winds of the young stars and radiation of the hypergiants is compressing the gas and dust present in the nebula into these very compact "trunks". Over time, there's a good chance that some very massive stars will form in the center of them.⁣ ⁣ #slooh #astronomer #astronomy #science #space #astrophysics #universe #Cosmos #telescope #galaxy #milkyway #photography #spacetime #spacetravel #physics #AstroPhotography #Interstellar #nebula #Astronomie #Stars #deepspace #deepsky #nightsky #nasa #spacex #photooftheday #picoftheday #naturephotography #stargazing

As you may have heard/read (or maybe you observed it yourself), we were able to observe the planet Mercury transiting in front of the sun yesterday (November 11th). The first image in this posts shows exactly that (the black dot towards the lower left is Mercury). You probably also picked up that this is a relatively rare event. But with Mercury's orbital period of 88 days vs Earth's 365 days, it's passing in between us and the sun all the time. So why aren't we able to observe it more often?⁣ ⁣ The answer lies in what's known as orbital planes. While all bodies in our solar system orbit around the sun, they don't all do it at the same angle. If we take the sun’s equator as our reference point (zero degrees in other words); Earth orbits at a 7.1 degree inclination while Mercury orbits at a 3.8 degree inclination. While this may seem like a minor difference; because of the distances involved, this makes a huge difference and will cause an exact lineup between both bodies to be fairly rare. The second image is a small graphical representation (credit: BBC's Sky at Night Magazine) which should hopefully make it perfectly clear.⁣ ⁣ You might be wondering, why is there a difference in these orbital inclinations in the first place? The answer is very simple; random chance. Remember that planets form within a protoplanetary disk (a spinning disk of material around a star) at roughly the same time. The chances of all of them compressing and forming at exactly the same level of inclination relative to the star are just very low. That's all there is to it. No diffult mechanics or scientific explanation, just pure chance.⁣ ⁣ #slooh #astronomer #astronomy #science #space #astrophysics #universe #Cosmos #telescope #galaxy #milkyway #photography #spacetime #spacetravel #physics #AstroPhotography #Interstellar #nebula #Astronomie #Stars #deepspace #deepsky #nightsky #nasa #spacex #photooftheday #picoftheday #naturephotography #stargazing

ALMA is an array of 66 movable radio dishes that can work together as a giant single telescope. On April 10 astronomers revealed the first-ever image of a black hole, a breakthrough in science. They synched ALMA with several other telescopes across the globe to reveal the black hole in the heart of a massive galaxy some 50 million light-years away.

Women typically have a 13% risk of developing #breastcancer over their lifetime. "I had an estimated 87% risk of developing the disease and a 50% risk of ovarian cancer. Because of my high risk, experts recommended preventive surgeries," writes Angelina Jolie, a TIME contributing editor, an Academy Award-winning actor and Special Envoy of the U.N. High Commissioner for @Refugees. Jolie lost her grandmother and mother to breast cancer. "I had a double mastectomy and later removed my ovaries and fallopian tubes, significantly reducing, although not removing altogether, my risk of developing cancer. In the years since my surgeries, there has been further progress. #technology and #science are converging in ways that will bring discoveries to clinics—and into our homes—at the most rapid pace in human #history. What I’ve come to understand, as I’ve reflected on my own experiences and those of others I’ve met, is that while we should continue to push for advancement, care is not just about medical treatments. It’s also about the safety, dignity and support afforded to #women, whether they’re battling cancer or trying to manage other stressful situations. And far too often they’re not given nearly enough."

The Universe has the perfect conditions for life. 🌱 For example, if the force of gravity was a bit weaker, then galaxies, stars ✨, and planets 🌍 wouldn't be able to form as they did. . But at the same time, the only reason we can even ask this question is because we are alive to ask it, so if the universe didn't had the conditions for life, no one would have noticed.. 🌌 . #science #Cosmos #universe #space #time #spacetime #physics #philosophy #scientist #philosopher #greekphilosophy #deep #deepquestions #nature #cosmology #physicist #curiosity

Mu Cephei is a red hypergiant star in the Cepheus constellation, around 2800 light years from earth.⁣ ⁣ At around 20 times the mass and 1200 times the size of the sun, Mu Cephei is quite the star. However, contrary to what you might expect; the "hypergiant" classification has nothing to do with its size (or at least not directly). So what constitutes a hypergiant exactly? There's three criteria a star must meet in order to be classified as a hypergiant:⁣ ⁣ 1) Its luminosity. Very simply put, the brightness of the star has to be extraordinarily large. We're talking hundreds of thousands of times the brightness of our own sun.⁣ ⁣ 2) Atmospheric instability. As I've explained a couple of times before, a star is always trying to maintain some sort equilibrium between its radiation pressure (a force pushing outwards) and its own gravity (doing the opposite). If these forces are roughly equal, you have a fairly calm/stable star. In hypergiants, this is far from the case. Their intense radiation pressure occasionally takes the overhand and essentially causing an instability between these two forces.⁣ ⁣ 3) Mass loss. This ties into the previous point. As a result of the instability I just explained; when the stars outwards pushing radiation pressure takes the overhand, large amounts of its outer layers essentially get blown off and thrown into space. The best example of this would be Eta Carinae B; a hypergiant where this effect is so extreme that it's very visible even from our vantage point (you've probably seen the related Hubble images at some point).⁣ ⁣ So that's all there is to it. So next time you see the term hypergiant being used, you now know what it means.⁣ ⁣ #slooh #astronomer #astronomy #science #space #astrophysics #universe #Cosmos #telescope #galaxy #milkyway #photography #spacetime #spacetravel #physics #AstroPhotography #Interstellar #nebula #Astronomie #Stars #deepspace #deepsky #nightsky #nasa #spacex #photooftheday #picoftheday #naturephotography #stargazing
