Astronomers discovered a star that went supernova in 1954...then again in 2014. The lead author called it the biggest puzzle Ive encountered and recently participated in a roundtable discussion with experts in the field hosted by The Kavli Foundation.

Huge. This will blow your mind.

The scale of it all! Understanding the size of Earth in comparison to the rest of our solar system -- an amazing illustration to visualize the size and scale of our world!

PHD Comics: Super Massive Black Holes

Super Massive Black Holes by PHD Comics. Sagittarius A*, the super massive black hole at the center of the Milky Way, has a mass million times the mass of our sun, and a diameter equal to the distance between the sun and Mercury.

The death throes of this star may only last mere moments on a cosmological timescale, but this star’s demise is still quite lengthy by our standards, lasting tens of thousands of years!

Hubble Sees a Dying Star's Final Moments

This spectacular spiral galaxy is known to astronomers as Messier 83. Colloquially, it is also called  the Southern Pinwheel due to its similarity to the more northerly Pinwheel galaxy Messier 101. NASAs Spitzer Space Telescope shows us, in spectacular detail, the infrared structure of what many think of as our own Milky Way galaxys smaller cousin.

Here is the beginning of what we can call a plasmic "circle".... alive....

The Hourglass Nebula, light years away, has a pinched-in-the-middle look because the winds that shape it are weaker at the centre. You see the Breath/Wind is everywhere
