The formation of this cosmic bridge is a consequence of […]

INSAT-3DS Satellite Embarks on its Journey to SDSC-SHAR Launch Port.

On January 25, 2024, the INSAT-3DS satellite, a dedicated meteorological endeavor by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), was ceremoniously flagged off to the Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC-SHAR) launch port. This satellite marks a pivotal stride in providing seamless services, ensuring continuity from the existing INSAT-3D and 3DR satellites while significantly amplifying the capabilities […]

Hubble captures a monster merger in Arp 122.

In this Hubble Picture of, we delve into the cosmic drama of Arp 122, a peculiar galaxy that is, in fact, an amalgamation of two galaxies – NGC 6040, a tilted and warped spiral, and LEDA 59642, a round, face-on spiral. These celestial entities find themselves entwined in the midst of a dramatic collision, showcasing […]

Hubble studies a sparkling galaxy pair NGC 5410 and UGC 8932/PGC 49896.

In this latest image captured by the NASA Hubble Space Telescope, a captivating duo of interacting galaxies, NGC 5410 and UGC 8932/PGC 49896, takes center stage. The more prominent of the two, NGC 5410, was originally discovered by the renowned British astronomer William Herschel in 1787. Spanning an impressive 80,000 light-years, NGC 5410 features a […]

Hubble Space Telescope Discovers Water Vapour in Atmosphere of Small Exoplanet.

Astronomers using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have achieved a significant breakthrough by detecting water vapor in the atmosphere of the smallest exoplanet observed to date. GJ 9827d, with a size approximately twice that of Earth, stands as a potential example of planets with water-rich atmospheres beyond our solar system. According to team member Björn […]

NASA’s LRO Laser Instrument Achieves Successful ‘Ping’ on Indian Moon Lander.

For the first time at the Moon,a laser beam was successfully transmitted and reflected between NASA’s orbiting Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) and a compact device on ISRO’s Vikram lander. Positioned near the Manzinus crater in the Moon’s South Pole region, the Vikram lander, located 62 miles (100 kilometers) away from the LRO, became the focal […]

A Glorious Glimpse into the Bright Galaxy Group LEDA 60847 by Hubble telescope.

  This new NASA Hubble Space Telescope image shows a group of interacting galaxies known as LEDA 60847. Classified as an active galactic nuclei (AGN), LEDA 60847 harbors a supermassive black hole in its central region, actively accreting material. The AGN radiates across the entire electromagnetic spectrum, emanating an intense brilliance. This celestial display offers […]

The Webb telescope studied the birth of a giant cluster.

The image captured by the NASA/ESA/CSA James Webb Space Telescope showcases the H II region N79 in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), a satellite galaxy of our Milky Way. This nebula, composed of ionized interstellar atomic hydrogen, is observed through Webb’s Mid-InfraRed Instrument (MIRI). N79, a vast star-forming complex spanning about 1630 light-years in the largely […]

Hubble Telescope views a galactic supernova site.

In this image the spotlight falls on the diminutive galaxy UGC 5189A, positioned approximately 150 million light-years distant within the Leo constellation. The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope turned its gaze toward this cosmic neighbor to scrutinize the aftermath of a spectacular supernova, specifically the explosive event known as SN 2010,which unfolded in 2010.What sets this […]

Webb’s experiments showed that many early galaxies looked like pool noodles, surfboards.

Researchers, using NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope, have observed that galaxies in the early universe exhibit an unusual trend—they are often flat and elongated, resembling surfboards or pool noodles rather than the more common round shapes like volleyballs or frisbees. Lead author Viraj Pandya, a NASA Hubble Fellow at Columbia University, noted that approximately 50 […]

Data from NASA’s IXPE help researchers maximize findings from ‘microquasar SS 433’.

In this captivating composite image of the Manatee Nebula, the dynamic interplay of cosmic forces unfolds. The jet streaming from SS 433, a black hole engulfing surrounding matter, is vividly showcased within the supernova remnant that birthed it. The blue-green hues signify radio emissions from the remnant, while the striking bright blue-purple and pink-white hues […]

A team of astronomers found that an Earth-sized planet HD 63433 d has a ‘lava hemisphere’.

Similar to Kepler-10 b, as depicted above, the exoplanet HD 6343 d belongs to the category of small, rocky planets with a compact orbit around its star. Standing out for its youth, HD 63433 d holds the distinction of being the smallest confirmed exoplanet under 500 million years old. Notably, it also holds the title […]

NASA’s new Study on space-based solar power system.

In a burst of solar activity, the sun unleashed a notable solar flare, reaching its peak at 2:14 p.m. EDT on October 20, 2012. Captured by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), this image showcases an M9-class flare, providing a glimpse into the dynamic nature of our star. The potential of space-based solar power emerges as […]
