There's some really cool stuff in outer space

It's really hard for the human mind to imagine the infinity of outerspace. Everything in our world is finite with a border or an end. I personally am amazed and curious as to what lies at the end , or is there an end. There can't be an end. Something has to exist at the end. Anyway , I included a link so you can view pic's. Neat stuff. Hogfarmer.

Strange shapes in space
Posted: Friday, May 07, 2010 7:25 PM by Alan Boyle


ESA / PACS / SPIRE / HOBYS
The Herschel space telescope's view of RCW 120 shows a bubble pushed out by
a big star's blast, with yet another giant star forming on the bubble's right edge.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


The shapes of bubbles and clouds in outer space demonstrate that physics can do some pretty bizarre things on a giant scale.

Take RCW 120, for example. The star-forming bubble, about 4,200 light-years away in the constellation Scorpius, is the subject of a European Space Agency picture celebrating the first anniversary of the Herschel space telescope's launch.




ESP
RCW 120's central star can be seen in this APEX picture.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Radiation from a hot, massive star at the bubble's center is blasting gas and dust outward, and that's what has cleared out the space around the star. The central star doesn't show up well in Herschel's infrared image, but you can see it easily in this submillimeter-wavelength view from the European Southern Observatory's APEX telescope in Chile.

The shock wave from the central star compresses the material on the bubble's edge so much that still more stars are being squeezed into existence. In the Herschel image, you can see a particularly bright spot on the right edge of the bubble. That's an embryonic star that appears destined to turn into one of the brightest lights in our galaxy.

The Herschel science team calls it an "impossible" star because it's exceeding the theoretical limit for a star's mass.

"This star can only grow bigger," Annie Zavango, an astronomer at the Laboratoire d'Astrophysique de Marseille, said in the ESA's image advisory. "According to our current understanding, you should not be able to form stars larger than eight solar masses."

At about eight solar masses, the power of the newborn star should blast away any additional gas or dust before the extra mass has a chance to accumulate. But the star at the bubble's edge is already eight to 10 times as massive as the sun, and it's on track to get much larger.

Astronomers have already spotted stars that are as much as 150 times as massive as the sun, but they don't know exactly how they can get that large. A close study of the brightening light in RCW 120 could show them the way.




NASA / ESA / STScI
Hubble's view of Eta Carinae.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Stellar blasts can blow amazing bubbles in space. Perhaps the best-known blast is associated with Eta Carinae, a supermassive star that could go supernova one of these days.

Its double-lobed shape, reminiscent of an old-fashioned dumbbell, arises because the star is blowing material out from both poles.

Lots of stellar explosions take on this shape: The phenomenon has been attributed to several factors, including spin dynamics and the star's magnetic field.




NASA / ESA / KULeuven / Berkeley
Hubble image of Red Rectangle.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Perspective plays a role as well: One famous example is the Red Rectangle, which looks like a quadrangle but is actually two back-to-back cones of material flowing out from a double-star system.

And then there's the hexagon on Saturn: The six-sided cloud pattern at the ringed planet's north pole has puzzled astronomers for decades, but now physicists have figured out the dynamics that can cause hexagonal features - as well as triangular, square and even seven-sided shapes as well. They can even create them in the lab.




Oxford via YouTube
Simulation shows six-sided fluid flow. Click for YouTube video.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Researchers from Oxford University produced the geometrical effects using a solution of water and glycerol in a tank that could be spun up to various speeds. Their findings were published in the journal Icarus last month, and this week Planetary Society blogger Emily Lakdawalla provided plenty of pictures and videos explaining the phenomenon.

Still more strange sights can be seen at the surface of our sun, as illustrated by the first big batch of photos from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory. One video clip shows a huge prominence looping up from the sun's surface and back down again. Another movie shows a wave of plasma rising up, then falling back down to the surface like "coronal rain."




NASA
Click for slideshow: Looping flares and more April highlights.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The curling action occurs because of complex loops in the sun's magnetic field, as discussed by Discovery News' Ian O'Neill. Those loops help explain why the solar corona gets so much hotter than the actual surface of the sun.

The Solar Dynamics Observatory's perspective on the sun's sizzling loops is the top picture in our latest installment of the Month in Space Pictures. For more strange shapes, click your way through the curiosities on exhibit in msnbc.com's Space Gallery.

The universe is indeed massive. I think it could hold like ... maybe ... 1 billion hogs. Maybe more.

The universe is finite, too. Finite yet unbounded.... there is no "end." Space is bent. Its a Gaussian coordinate relativity kinda thing.

I agree. I would think with the number of planets in the universe it would be a mathmatical certainty there are other populated worlds.

The more we learn about the universe the less I buy into there being an all powerful being as our creator.

Balloons that are filled with helium and float up in the sky.

The sun is filled with helium and floats up the sky.

Therefore, the moon is filled with helium.

Nice affirming the consequent fallacy used there!

I don't rule out the possibility of life on other planets, however i rule out the possibility of that life ever being discovered by humans. The areas in our galaxy that scientist have determined to be capable of sustaining life is still trillions upon trillions of miles too far away for the world's most advanced telescope to see anything that would prove life existed there. It's one of those things that we just have to mathematically assume is more probable than not, but yet will never be able to prove.
