New Black Hole In GLobular Cluster
2013-11-07 07:51:37

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Astronomers have discovered a new black hole candidate sitting inside a globular cluster known as M62. The latest discovery, reported in the Astrophysical Journal, adds weight to the argument that black holes are a common occurrence in these star clusters. Astronomers discovered two black holes in a globular cluster, known as M22, last year . "This implies that the discovery of the other black hole, in the globular cluster called...

Twisted Path Ancient Light Mapped

John P. Millis, PhD for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online When astronomers peer into the deepest regions of the cosmos they are not seeing the Universe as it exists today, but rather how it looked billions of years ago. That's because light emitted by distant galaxies moves at a finite speed and therefore requires billions of years to reach Earth. Further complicating the matter is the fact that the light does not travel along a direct line of site to Earth. The photons are deflected...

The experimental evidence on Santilli's anomalous IsoRedShift and IsoBlueShift of light without relative motion was verified and the consequential lack of expansion of the universe was confirmed by the participants of Sessions 44, 144 and 145 of the recent ICNAAM conference in Greece (see the Schedule of Talks http://www.santilli-foundation.org/docs/Rhodes-2013-IsoMath-Schedule.pdf). Palm harbor, FL, (PRWEB) October 21, 2013 The experimental evidence on Santilli's anomalous...

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com – Your Universe Online After for four years surveying the Universe for the European Space Agency (ESA), the Planck space telescope’s Low Frequency Instrument will be turned off on Saturday, having completed its science operations on October 3. The telescope’s High Frequency Instrument ended operation in January 2012, after conducting five all-sky surveys. With some operational loose ends still to tie up, Planck will finally be switched off next week....

Image Caption: The Hubble Extreme Deep Field (XDF) was completed in September 2012 and shows the farthest galaxies ever photographed by humans. Each speck of light in the photo is an individual galaxy, some of them as old as 13.2 billion years; the observable universe is estimated to contain more than 200 billion galaxies. Credit: NASA/Wikipedia What is Cosmology? I once commented to an acquaintance that I was fascinated by the field of Cosmology, and mused that if I had more time, I...

Physics
2014-01-12 00:00:00

Physics is a natural science involving the study of matter and its motion through space-time, along with related concepts such as energy and force. On a broader scale, it also involves the general analysis of nature, conducted in order to understand how the universe behaves. Physics is one of the oldest academic disciplines, perhaps the oldest through its inclusion of astronomy. Physics was part of natural philosophy until the Scientific Revolution in the 16th century, when the natural...

Lyra Constellation -- Lyra (the lyre) is a prominent, although fairly small, northern constellation. It was one of Ptolemy's 48 constellations, and also counts among the modern 88 constellations. Its brightest star is Vega (Alpha Lyrae), which together with Altair (Alpha Aquilae) and Deneb (Alpha Cygni) forms the large asterism known as the Summer Triangle. Beta Lyr is a half separated (i.e. one of the stars reached its Rochevolume) eclipsing binary of a cream-white colour. The...

Cygnus Constellation -- Cygnus (the swan) is a northern constellation. It was one of Ptolemy's 48 constellations, and is also one of the 88 modern constellations. Because of the pattern of its main stars, it is sometimes called the Northern Cross (in contrast to the Southern Cross). The bird extends over the summer Milky Way, appearing to fly south. Notable features Cygnus contains several bright stars. Deneb, α Cygni, is an extremely brilliant star, very prominent despite...

Centaurus Constellation -- Centaurus (the centaur) was one of the 48 constellations listed by Ptolemy, and counts also among the 88 modern constellations. A constellation of the southern hemisphere, mentioned by Eudoxus (4th century B.C.) and Aratus (3rd century B.C.), Ptolemy catalogued thirty-seven stars in it. It contains Proxima Centauri, the red dwarf that is the nearest known star (other than the Sun) to Earth, as well as Alpha Centauri, which is a double star to which Proxima...
