El nacimiento de un planeta gigante

This artist’s impression shows the formation of a gas giant planet in the ring of dust around the young star HD This system is also suspected to contain another large planet orbiting closer to the star. CREDIT: ESO/L.

2 cosmic owls glare back toward planet Earth in this intriguing comparison of planetary nebulae. On the left is M97 in the constellation Ursa Major, also known in the northern hemisphere as the Owl Nebula. On the right is its visual counterpart, the southern Owl Nebula in the constellation Hydra, cataloged as PLN 283+25.1. Both nebulae are remarkably symmetric, round, and similar in size, some 2 light-years across or about 2,000 times the diameter of Neptune's orbit

What sets newly found super Earth apart? It's simple as night and day.

Scientists say they have found a planet seven times more massive than Earth orbiting in a star's habitable zone 42 light-years away. It could have seas, and perhaps just as important, it could have an Earth-like climate because it has a day-night cycle.

This artist's conception shows the suspected progenitor of a new kind of supernova called Type Iax. Material from a hot, blue helium star at right is funneling toward a carbon/oxygen white dwarf star at left, which is embedded in an accretion disk. In many cases the white dwarf survives the subsequent explosion.

Astronomers have identified a new type of supernova, or star explosion, called Type Iax, which represents a miniature form of the more common Type Ia supernovas.

Astronomers Identify the Largest Yellow “Hypergiant” Star Known

HR a hypergiant binary yellow star light years away in the constellation Centaurus is the largest of its type known. It is 1300 times wider and one million times brighter than our sun Sol.

7/31/2008: Galaxies on a String -  NGC 5216 (top right) and NGC 5218. The string between the two galaxies is a cosmic trail of gas, dust and stars about 22,000 ly long. The debris trail between the galaxies, along with NGC 5218's comma-shaped extension and the distorted arms of NGC 5216 are a consequence of mutual gravitational tides that disrupt the galaxies as they repeatedly swing close to one another. The galaxies are located about 17 million ly away in the constellation Ursa Major.

Galaxies on a String. Galaxies NGC 5216 (top right) and NGC 5218 really do look like they are connected by a string. Of course, that string is a cosmic trail of gas, dust, and stars about light-years long.
