The unusual dimming episode of Betelgeuse has surprised astronomers.


Orion, the constellation of the Universe, has a shining Betelgeuse red star, which has been faint for quite some time, the researchers say, that it has been happening for the past century, the phenomenon has excited astronomers a lot, will this star become a supernova ? And it will explode, this question is in everyone's mind. Astronomers say that it would be thrilling for us to understand the behavior of Beteluse, astronomers had never seen it from Betelgeuse before, and many astronomers are not yet aware of the variable behavior of Supergirl stars like Betelgeuse, but astronomers There is a chance to learn more about the strange activity of the Betelgeuse star.

Betelgeuse is the brightest place, with Betelgeuse being one of the six or seven brightest stars in the sky at night, by mid-December, several places have fallen to 21st on that list. Betelgeuse is about 700 times larger than our sun, and the way it is bigger than our sun, so obviously, it will explode as a supernova one day, and we will be able to see this event at night, If mankind remains alive, it will give us a chance to watch an astronomical show.


Betelgeuse has been seen to glow and dim many times, Betelgeuse is a giant red star, a star late in its life, which has expanded to a gigantic size. Betelgeuse bubbles rise from the star's surface to the top of the star, causing the mixture of warmer and cooler material on the star's surface to sink back down, and such a change makes the Betelgeuse brighter over time. Richard Vasatonic, an astronomer at the University of Villanova, has measured the brightness of Bethelues with a 10-inch diameter telescope, at which time he noticed that Betelgeuse was faint again, December. In early 2019, he again realized, during the last 25 years that Betelgeuse had been fainted, Richard Wasatonic put a post on a site called The Astronomer Telegram, to alert other astronomers.

Astronomers have been surprised by the unusual dimming episode, because Betelgeuse is known as a supernova, and the question is whether Betelgeuse will explode, if Betelgeuse explodes, will it have an impact on Earth. According to the researchers, in order to harm the Earth, the Earth has to be extremely close to supernova radiation, but the Earth is about 724 light years away from the Betelgeuse supernova, which is out of danger, so the Earth will not be harmed  .


Astronomers have carefully observed the behavior of stars after a supernova explosion, but have not considered in detail how a star behaves when a star becomes a supernova. Astronomers don't really know right now, whether the current dimming event is going to a supernova, or not, but there's still a lot of potential for a bang, because there is so much uncertainty in Betelgeuse's behavior and his age, though astronomers are Giving more accurate ideas, Betelgeuse will explode anytime in the next 100,000 years.

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…
