Instagravity: полетать над Солнцем и сквозь галактики

Inspired собирает Instagram-профили, за которыми стоит следить

В Международный день полета человека в космос и День работников ракетно-космической отрасли Украины предлагаем посмотреть видео с инстаграму центра космических полетов имени Годдарда. Это большая исследовательская лаборатория NASA, которая была основана в 1959 году. В этом Instagram-профиле можно найти информацию о проектах NASA и просмотреть видео и фото из космоса.

Send your name to the Sun! ????☀ . @Nasas Parker Solar Probe will revolutionize our understanding of the Sun; it will swoop to within 4 million miles of the suns surface, фронтальная heat and radiation like no spacecraft before it. Launching in 2018, Parker Solar Probe will provide new data on solar activity and make critical contributions to our ability to forecast major space weather events that impact life on Earth. . Be a part of the first mission to touch the Sun! Submit your name to be included on a memory card that will fly aboard the Parker Solar Probe spacecraft at Deadline April 27, 2018. .

NASA scientist are searching for a somewhat unusual substance, missing dark matter in an oddball galaxy. [via @NASAHubble] . Researchers were surprised when they uncovered a galaxy that is missing most, if not all of its dark matter. An invisible substance, dark matter is the underlying scaffolding upon which galaxies are built. Its the glue that holds the visible matter in galaxies — stars and gas — together. . We thought that every galaxy had dark matter and that dark matter is how a galaxy begins, said Pieter van Доккум of Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, lead researcher of the Hubble observations. This invisible, mysterious substance is the most dominant aspect of any galaxy. So finding a galaxy without it is unexpected. It challenges the standard ideas of how we think galaxies work, and it shows that dark matter is real: it has its own separate existence apart from other components of galaxies. This result also suggests that there may be more than one way to form a galaxy. .

@NASAHubbles Orion Nebula — 360° Video . This visualization journeys into the famous star-forming region of the Orion Nebula based on an image from the Hubble Space Telescope. This exhilarating trip begins by flying through a layer of gas above the nebula, called the veil. The descent to the gaseous surface provides an overview of the structure of the region as the winds and radiation from the central cluster have carved out a long valley in the cloud. The massive bright stars are responsible for heating the gas to temperatures at which it glows. . To view the 360° video go to: .

Flying through the Orion nebula . By combining the visible and infrared capabilities of the Hubble и Spitzer space telescopes, astronomers and visualization specialists from NASAs Universe of Learning program have created a spectacular, three-dimensional, fly-through movie of the magnificent Orion nebula, a nearby stellar nursery. Using actual scientific data along with Hollywood techniques, a team at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, Maryland, and the Caltech/IPAC in Pasadena, California, has produced the best and most detailed multi-wavelength visualization yet of the Orion nebula. #nasagoddard #space #orion #nebula

Hubbles Celestial Snow Globe ❄???????? . Its beginning to look a lot like the holiday season in this @NASAHubble image of a blizzard of stars, which resembles a swirling snowstorm in a snow globe. . The stars are residents of the globular star cluster Messier 79, or M79, located 41,000 light-years from Earth, in the constellation Lepus. The cluster is also known as NGC 1904. Globular clusters are gravitationally bound groupings of as many as 1 million stars. M79 contains about 150,000 stars packed into an area measuring only 118 light-years across. These giant “star-globes” contain some of the oldest stars in our galaxy, estimated to be 11.7 billion years old. . This video starts with a wide-field view of the sky covering the constellations of Orion, the hunter, and Lepus, the hare. The view zooms down to the relatively tiny field of the Hubble image of globular star cluster Messier 79 (M79). The sequence then dissolves to a visualization of a rotating star cluster that provides three-dimensional perspective. The simulated star cluster is modeled to reflect the number, color, and distribution of stars in M79, but not its exact structure. Finally, the scene pulls back to reveal a special holiday greeting. . In the Hubble image, Sun-like stars appear yellow. The reddish stars are bright giants that represent the final stages of a stars life. Most of the blue stars sprinkled throughout the cluster are aging “helium-burning” stars. These bright blue stars have exhausted their hydrogen fuel and are now fusing helium in their cores. . A scattering of fainter blue stars are “blue stragglers.” These unusual stars glow in blue light, mimicking the appearance of hot, young stars. Blue stragglers form either by the merger of stars in a binary system or by the collision of two unrelated stars in M79s crowded core. . Credit: NASA and ESA, Acknowledgment: S.

Saturday, Oct. 28 is International Observe the Moon Night, a worldwide celebration of lunar science and exploration. One day each year, everyone is invited to observe and learn about the Moon together, and to celebrate the cultural and personal connections we all have with Earths nearest neighbor. So save the date and plan on looking up this Saturday! Learn more at The animation shows the geocentric phase, libration, position angle of the axis, and apparent diameter of the Moon throughout the year 2017, at hourly intervals.
