Presentation Transcript

The tempestuous stellar nursery called the Carina Nebula, located 7,500 light-years away from Earth in the southern constellation Carina. REUTERS-NAS


A view of the Whirlpool Galaxy's curving arms where newborn stars reside and its yellowish central core that serves as home for older stars. REUTERS-NAS


Star V838 Monocerotis's (V838 Mon) light echo, which is about six light years in diameter. REUTERS- NASA, ESA, H. E. Bond (STScI


One of the largest mosaics ever assembled from Hubble photos shows several million young stars vying for attention amid a raucous stellar breeding ground in 30 Doradus, a star-forming complex located in the heart of the Tarantula nebula. REUTERS-NASA, ESA, D. Lennon and E. Sabbi (ESA-STScI), J. Anderson, S. E. de Mink, R. van der Marel, T. Sohn, and N. Walborn (STScI), N. Bastian (Excellence Cluster, Munich), L.

An image of a small region within a hotbed of star formation M17, also known as the Omega or Swan Nebula, located about 5,500 light-years from Earth in the constellation Sagittarius. REUTERS-NASA-ESA-J. Hester


A pair of gravitationally interacting galaxies called Arp 147. The left-most galaxy is relatively undisturbed apart from a smooth ring of starlight. It appears nearly on edge to our line of sight. The right- most galaxy, resembling a 'zero,' exhibits a clumpy, blue ring of intense star formation. REUTERS-NASA-Handout


A panchromatic vision, stretching from ultraviolet through near-infrared wavelengths, revealing the vibrant glow of young, blue star clusters and a glimpse into regions normally obscured by dust.REUTERS-NASA, ESA, and the Hubble Heritage (STScI-AURA)-ESA-Hubble Collaboratio


An image of the Eagle Nebula reveals a tall, dense tower of gas being sculpted by ultraviolet light from a group of massive, hot stars. REUTERS-NASA-Handou


An image of the Antennae galaxies, as the two galaxies smash together, during which time billions of stars are born, mostly in groups and clusters. The brightest and most compact of these are called super star clusters. REUTERS-NASA, ESA-Hubble-B. Whitmore-Space Telescope Science Institut


An image of the Pencil Nebula shows remnants from a star that exploded thousands of years ago.REUTERS-NASA


Supernova remnant 0509-67.5, located in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), a small galaxy about 170,000 light-years from Earth. REUTERS-NASA, ESA, CXC, SAO, Hubble Heritage Team (STScI-AURA), J. Hughes (Rutgers University


An image of the Bug Nebula shows impressive walls of compressed gas, laced with trailing strands and bubbling outflows. A dark, dusty torus surrounds the inner nebula (seen at the upper right). At the heart of the turmoil is one of the hottest stars known. REUTERS-HO-ESA-NASA-Albert Zijlstra


The 'Black Eye' galaxy, so named because an ancient cosmic smashup produced a dark ring and a roiling, conflicted interior. What looks like a black eye in the image is actually a dark band of dust that stands out vividly in front of the galaxy's bright nucleus.REUTERS-NASA and The Hubble Heritage Team


An image of a nebula about 170,000 light-years away. REUTERS-NASA, ESA, Hubble Heritage Team


An image shows a giant star-forming nebula with massive young stellar clusters. REUTERS-NASA, ESA, and the Hubble Heritage-Handout


A pair of interacting galaxies consisting of NGC 5754, the large spiral on the right, and NGC 5752, the smaller companion in the bottom left. NGC 5754's internal structure has hardly been disturbed by the interaction. The outer structure does exhibit tidal features, as does the symmetry of the inner spiral pattern and the kinked arms just beyond its inner ring. In contrast, NGC 5752 has undergone a starburst episode, with a rich population of massive and luminous star clusters clumping around the core and intertwined with intricate dust lanes. The contrasting reactions of the two galaxies to their interaction are due to their differing masses and sizes. REUTERS-NASA, ESA, the Hubble Heritage Team-ESA-Hubble Collaboration-W.

An image of the Orion nebula shows four monstrously massive stars at the center of the cloud. REUTERS- NASA-JPL-Caltech-T. Megeath-University of Toledo-M. Robberto-STSc


A massive star known as Eta Carinae in our Milky Way galaxy that experts believe might explode in a supernova in the astronomically near future.REUTERS-NASA-Handout


An image of Jupiter shows the planet's trademark belts and zones of high- and low-pressure regions in crisp detail. Circular convection cells can be seen at high northern and southern latitudes. REUTERS-NASA, ESA, and the Hubble Heritage Team


The staggering aftermath of an encounter between two galaxies, resulting in a ring-shaped galaxy and a long-tailed companion. The collision between the two parent galaxies produced a shockwave effect that first drew matter into the center and then caused it to propagate outwards in a ring. REUTERS-NASA-ES


A view of AM 1316-241, made up of two interacting galaxies - a spiral galaxy in front of an elliptical galaxy. The starlight from the background galaxy is partially obscured by the bands and filaments of dust associated with the foreground spiral galaxy. REUTERS-NASA, ESA, the Hubble Heritage Team-ESA-Hubble Collaboration-W. Keel-University of Alabam


A view of Mars made from a series of exposures taken over a fify-two minute period. REUTERS-J. Bell-Cornell U-and M. Wolff


An image of a type 2 Seyfert galaxy that lies 13 million light-years away in the southern constellation Circinus. The galaxy has a compact center and is believed to contain a massive black hole. REUTERS-NAS


An image of galaxy NGC 1512 showing a monster area - 2,400 light-years across - filled with clusters of infant stars.REUTERS-NASA


A bizarre comet-like X-pattern of filamentary structures circling about 90 million miles from Earth. It is believed the object was created by the collision of two asteroids.REUTERS-NASA-ES


The first visible-light snapshot of a planet circling another star. Estimated to be no more than three times Jupiter's mass the planet, called Fomalhaut b, orbits the bright southern star Fomalhaut, located 25 light-years away.REUTERS-NASA-ES


An image of a crater on an object called 8405 Asbolus, a 48 mile-wide chunk of ice and dust between Saturn and Uranus. REUTERS-NAS


A large rare population of hot, bright stars inside the hub of the neighboring Andromeda galaxy. REUTERS-NAS


An image of a ghostly ring of dark matter in a galaxy cluster designated Cl 0024 17. Astronomers call the ring one of the strongest pieces of evidence to date for the existence of dark matter and suggest the ring was produced from a collision between two gigantic clusters. REUTERS-NASA, ESA, M.J. Jee and H. Ford-Johns Hopkins University-Handout


An image of a coil-shaped Helix Nebula showing a fine web of filamentary 'bicycle-spoke' features embedded in the colorful red and blue ring of gas. At 650 light-years away, the Helix is one of the nearest planetary nebulae to Earth. A planetary nebula is the glowing gas around a dying, Sun-like star. REUTERS-NASA


Several hundred never before seen galaxies are visible in what was the 'deepest-ever' view of the universe. Taken in 2009. REUTERS-Robert Williams and the Hubble Deep Field Team and NAS


A full-field image of the nearby dwarf galaxy NGC 4214. REUTERS-NASA, ESA, and the Hubble Heritage (STScI-AURA)-ESA-Hubble Collaboratio


A panoramic image showing a 50-light-year-wide view of the central region of the Carina Nebula as a maelstrom of a star's birth and death is takes place. REUTERS-NAS
