Hubble captures the rare cosmic footprint.


With the Hubble Space Telescope, scientists have captured an event in the Universe, it is a rare rare astronomical event, also called a protoplanetary nebula.It is called Minkowski's footprint by scientists, and also as Minkowski 92 It is known that this nebula has two huge onion-shaped structures,one on either side of an old star, and because of this it is a very special Gives the font size.

Minkowski's footprint shows that the protoplanetary nebula has a shorter life,
 and is the initial stage of the more common planetary nebula.A star appears in the middle of this image, and very soon will become a white dwarf, due to its surface beating it will eject the material, the charged particle currents, called stellar winds, make this gas interesting.Shaping in shapes

Scientists believe, technically Minkowski's footprint is currently a reflection nebula, visible only due to light reflected from the central star.  After a thousand years, the star will become hot, and because of this its ultraviolet radiation will light the surrounding gas from within, causing it to glow, and it will become a complete planetary nebula.

Scientists say, the processes behind the protoplanetary nebula have not yet been fully understood, but this makes such observation even more important, as Hubble has done, in the past, sterling work in this area  , And it is ready to continue it even further.

This image was obtained by the Hubble telescope with the Wide Field Planetary Camera 2.The image has several exposures made through four different color filters. The color of the light is blue (F502N) by ionized oxygen, and the light passing through the green / yellow filter (F547M) is colored cyan,  The color of light from atomic oxygen appears yellow (F631N), and its ionized sulfur has a light color of red (F673N).  The total exposure time per filter was 2080 s, 960 s, 2080 s and 1980 s, respectively, and the same field of view is just beyond 36 arseconds.

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…
