An infrared view of the M81 Galaxy by NASA.


The M81 Galaxy is located 12 million light-years from our Milky Way, located in the northern constellations of Ursa Major, including the Big Dipper, the galaxy Messier 81 is easily visible by large telescopes and small telescopes. 

Friends As we know, NASA launched the Spitzer Space Telescope in August 2003, a few days after its launch, the Spitzer Space Telescope released the public, M81 being one of its first datasets. Nasa Spitzer  On the occasion of the 16th anniversary of the Space Telescope, the image, taken by Spitzer, is on one occasion the new image, with expanded observations and improved processing,Hu is shown again.

This Spitzer Space Telescope features a combined mosaic of infrared array camera (IRAC) data at wavelengths of 3.6 / 4.5 μm (blue / cyan) and 8 μm (green) with Infrared Image Photometer (MIPS) data at 24 μm is.  And it detects a distribution of 3.6-micron near-infrared data (blue) stars, though the same Spitzer space telescope obscured image dust as unaffected, and the m81 galaxy with a relatively small size of spiral arms, a  Very smooth stellar mass distribution is revealed.

As one moves toward longer wavelengths, these predominantly spiral arms become the dominant feature of the galaxy. And the same 8-micron emission (green) is dominated by infrared light, dispersed by hot dust, which is due to  There is hot dust by the bright stars near it. 

Near the dust of stars in the galaxy is bathed by ultraviolet and visible light, and by absorbing the same ultraviolet or several visible-light photons, a dust grain is heated, and it is, for a long time, infrared  Re-emits energy at wavelengths.  Dust particles in the galaxy are formed by silicates (chemically similar to beach sand), carbonaceous grains, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, and they detect gas distribution in the galaxy.

NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope will be closed.

NASA briefly informed that the Spitzer Space Telescope will be permanently discontinued on January 30, 2020. After about 16 years of discovering the universe in light energy.  And by that time, the space shuttle has been working for more than 11 years beyond its prime mission, Spitzer examines the universe's various objects in infrared light.  It was in 2003 through the rocket that the American Space Research Organization NASA entered the space and entered the orbit around the Earth.  Spitzer rotates the sun on a path similar to that of the Earth but it runs a bit slower.  Today it is about 158 ​​million miles (254 million kilometers) away from our planet - more than 600 times the distance between Earth and Moon.  The spacing of Spitzer's orbit curve means that when the spacecraft indicates its fixed antenna on the earth to download data or receive commands, its solar panels tend to lean away from the sun.  During those periods, to operate the space shuttle, one should rely on…

SpaceX is launching its next dragon spacecraft.

SpaceX is preparing for its next mission, very soon Spacex will launch the Dragon Spacecraft with its Falcon 9 Rocket.
  SpaceX is the 18th commercial reproduction service mission, dragon spacecraft will be loaded with dozens of experiments made in space.  Launch date: Sunday, July 21, 2019 at 7:35 pm  International Space Station (ISS) us  The National Laboratory SpaceX's dragon is giving a finalization to more than two dozen payloads for launch in a circular circular laboratory.  Many of these payloads are aimed at improving human health on the earth, many of which are focused on drug development.  In addition, a series of payloads from identified private sector partners will be launched on this mission.  More than 40 student experiments and demonstrations have been included on the 18th Commercial Recepti Services Mission (CRS-18) of SpaceX.  One part of ISS American National Laboratory's goal is to encourage and engage next generation scientists.                              …

SpaceX,Dragon Cargo Returns Mission in Pacific ends with SplashDown

SpaceX dragon cargo spaceship dropped at 5:48 pm in the Pacific Ocean.  The EDT (2:48 p.m. PDT) is located approximately 202 miles southwest of Long Beach, California, which is located at the end of the company's 17th contracted Cargo Resipulli mission for NASA.  Spacecraft returned more than 4,200 pounds for other valuable scientific uses. Some scientific investigations of Dragon's return to Earth include: Overview of protein crystals growth, in the use of NASA's biophysics-6, to be interested in cancer treatment and radiation safety  There has been an increase in the growth of two proteins.  Scientists are using ground-based predictions and X-ray crystallography in space to determine that proteins are beneficial in crystallization in microbiology, where some proteins can grow with big and small flaws.Microglio biosynthesis in M…
