April 26, 2015 7:02 AM NASA celebrates silver jubilee anniversary of Hubble in outer space

Washington DC – NASA’s Hubble Telescope has completed 25 years of relentless service, capturing majestic views of the planet and the universe. On its inception during the 19th century, Hubble Space Telescope had taken a majestic view of the entire planetary nebula and the remains of a Sun-like star. One of the four siblings revolving in the outer space 55

April 26, 2015 5:39 AM Cosmologists Found Eleven Runaway Galaxies

The findings of study into compact galaxies have turned up something surprising: isolated compact ellipticals. Amid their study, scientists realized that there were numerous compact galaxies that weren’t situated close to any other galaxy, making them wonder why they were out in space alone. Cosmologists have officially checked eleven different galaxies 39

April 26, 2015 12:34 AM Astronomers locate 11 Galaxies facing Lonely Future

It’s a first for researchers to have discovered a number of runaway galaxies that managed to find a place away from their original homes. The galaxies have been thrown away from their galactic clusters because of gravitational turbulence. Discovery News has reported that 11 homeless galaxies have been identified by Igor Chilingarian, an astronomer at the Harvard-Smithsonian 37

April 25, 2015 9:19 PM Happy Birthday, Hubble: Seeing the Universe in a New Light

If you are at all interested in astronomy, chances are you've already heard that the Hubble Space Telescope is celebrating its 25th anniversary this week. What some people may not know is that Hubble is one of four siblings, so to speak. Back in the 1980s, NASA commissioned the "Great Observatories," each designed and built to study different wavelengths 57

April 25, 2015 11:33 AM Hubble's Other Telescope And The Day It Rocked Our World

The Hooker 100-inch reflecting telescope at the Mount Wilson Observatory, just outside Los Angeles. Edwin Hubble's chair, on an elevating platform, is visible at left. A view from this scope first told Hubble our galaxy isn't the only one. The Hubble Space Telescope this week celebrates 25 years in Earth's orbit. In that time the telescope has studied 40

April 25, 2015 1:58 AM UA scientists celebrate Hubble's 25 years

TUCSON – The Hubble Space Telescope passed its 25-year mark in space on Friday, April 24, with help from UA scientists. It's our window into the universe. As the Hubble Space Telescope blasted off into outer space, it launched our knowledge of the cosmos, thanks to never-before-seen imagery and data. 25 years ago, the Hubble Space Telescope finally launched 54

April 24, 2015 9:52 PM Cosmic tsunamis can wake up comatose galaxies

Unfortunately the new lease on life is too much for these aging galaxies to handle. Their newfound star-forming abilities quickly dissipate, researchers say. New research suggests cosmic tsunamis created by colliding galaxies can act as a sort of defibrillator for lifeless galaxies. Until now, researchers didn't think galaxies were affected by these 29

April 24, 2015 9:07 PM Cosmic tsunami wakes up comatose galaxies

Royal Astronomical Society Press Release A radio image highlighting the shock wave (seen here as the bright arc running from bottom left to top right) in the ‘Sausage’ merging cluster, made using the Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope. The shock wave was generated 1 billion years ago, when the two original clusters collided, and is moving at a very high speed 40

April 24, 2015 8:35 PM Astronomers Discover 11 Runaway Galaxies Flung from Their Residences

Astronomers have actually found 11 runaway galaxies that have been flung from their initial the homes of wander with area. The brand-new searchings for expose a bit more concerning these unusual as well as unusual features. An object is called a “runaway” if it’s moving faster compared to getaway rate. This suggests that, essentially, the item will certainly 35

April 24, 2015 4:27 PM Hubble telescope turns 25

NASA officials suggest Hubble's scientific life will continue well into the next decade. Hubble's construction began in the 1970s. It's launch was originally slated for 1983, but its completion was delayed nearly a decade by technical challenges and budget issues. But the massive mirrored telescope, orbiting just 100 miles beyond the International Space 31
