The Twisted Shockwaves of an Exploded Star

Discovered on September 5, 1784, by astronomer William Herschel, the Veil Nebula was once a star. Now, it is a twisted mass of shock waves that appears six times larger than the full Moon in the sky. This Hubble Space Telescope image shows just a small part of the nebula, a region known as the ‘south-eastern knot.’ The entire nebula is about 50 light years in radius, and is located almost 1500 light years away.

The Rise and Fall of Cognitive Skills: Different Parts of the Brain Work Best at Different Ages

March 9, 2015 3:59 pm | by Anne Trafton, MIT | News | Comments

Scientists have long known that our ability to think quickly and recall information, also known as fluid intelligence, peaks around age 20 and then begins a slow decline. However, more recent findings, including a new study from neuroscientists at MIT and Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), suggest that the real picture is much more complex.

Over the past several decades, astronomers have come to realize that the sky is filled with magnifying glasses that allow the study of very distant and faint objects barely visible with even the largest telescopes. An astronomer has now found that one of these lenses – called an “Einstein cross”– has created four separate images of a distant supernova.

ESA’s Proba-V minisatellite captures the rare sight of standing water in the arid south Australian outback. Lake Frome, one of the whitest salt lakes in the southern hemisphere is visible to the right. Unusually, this 12 February image shows it filled with brackish water that has flowed down the creeks in the area, which are typically dry.

Researchers have gained new insights into dark energy and the theory of gravitation by analyzing data from the “Planck” satellite mission of the European Space Agency. Their results demonstrate that the standard model of cosmology remains an excellent description of the universe. Yet when the Planck data is combined with other astronomical observations, several deviations emerge.
