Back in time 🕑🔭
“The Triangulum Galaxy (m33) is the third largest in our local group of Galaxies, behind Andromeda and our Milky Way. This image I captured over the last week, represents what it looked like 2.7 million year ago (I don’t think I’ll ever get over that fact). It is thought that M33 is a satellite of Andromeda or at least tidally connected in the past due to their velocities and interactions. At its core (seen in the final image) M33 produces intense electromagnetic radiation. It’s the strongest source of X-ray emission that we have found within millions of light years. It is also home to X-7, the largest stellar black hole we have yet to find. This image is a combination of 7.6 hours of LRGB and Ha data. When Ha (Hydrogen Alpha) is added to the image it reveals the reddish / pink pockets of new star forming regions and nebulae in the galaxy. Every spec in this image is a star (about 40billion in this galaxy) and if you look closely you can find some other galaxies floating far of in the distance. Yes, I’m a nerd. Confirmed. Enjoy”

What are those colorful rings around the Moon? 🌕🌈
👉🏽 A corona. Rings like this will sometimes appear when the Moon is seen through thin clouds. The effect is created by the quantum mechanical diffraction of light around individual, similarly-sized water droplets in an intervening but mostly-transparent cloud. Since light of different colors has different wavelengths, each color diffracts differently. Lunar Coronae are one of the few quantum mechanical color effects that can be easily seen with the unaided eye.

A Rare Look at an Iridescent Cloud 🌈☁️
A halo of multicolored mist floats in the sky. At first glance it looks like an angelic mural or even extraterrestrial activity. But this breathtaking photo is neither manipulated nor paranormal. It's an iridescent cloud, a phenomenon occurring right in our own atmosphere.

This image shows the area around galaxy NGC 6503. ✨🔭The galaxy, which lies about 18 million light-years away is at the edge of a strangely empty patch of space called the Local Void.
The video begins with a ground-based view of the night sky, before zooming in on galaxy NGC 6503 as the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope sees it.

The Andromeda Galaxy has an approximate diameter of 220,000 light years, which is more than double of that of the Milky Way. It is the largest galaxy in the Local Cluster. If it were bright enough, the Andromeda Galaxy would appear larger than the Moon in the sky (as depicted above), even with it being much farther away. The galaxy is 2.5 million light-years away from Earth, whereas the Moon is only 384,400 kilometers (238,900 mi) away - that should give you a better understanding of just how big the galaxy really is.

Where did the term black hole come from? 🤔⠀
This term "black hole" was coined many years later in 1967 by American astronomer John Wheeler. After decades of black holes being known only as theoretical objects, the first physical black hole ever discovered was spotted in 1971.⠀
The first modern solution of general relativity that would characterize a black hole was found by Karl Schwarzschild in 1916, although its interperation as a region of space from which nothing can escape was first published by David Finkelstein in 1958. Photo by @interstellarmovie⠀
La historia de los transportes más extraordinarios que nos abrieron la puerta, como civilización, para explorar el misterioso espacio exterior.
Una historia llena de momentos gloriosos y de tragedias también.

Last week the SpaceX Crew Dragon launched a high-altitude test of it’s launch escape system. 💥🚀
Lifting off from the NASA Kennedy Space Center, the Falcon 9 rocket “successfully” exploded in order to test the Crew Dragon’s abort capabilities. This is a critical test, as it could save the lives of future astronauts in the case of an emergency during takeoff. The test was a complete success and the Dragon landed safely back on Earth.

This week, NASA says farewell to the Spitzer Space Telescope, an orbiting spacecraft responsible for 16 years of amazing discoveries, including the TRAPPIST-1 system. This telescope, following an Earth-trailing orbit since its launch in August of 2003, spied the ultra-cool red dwarf star in early 2017, with the help of the ground-based TRAPPIST telescope for which it was named. Spitzer also discovered seven Earth-size exoplanets orbiting TRAPPIST-1, the most terrestrial planets ever found in a single star system! And as if that record weren't enough, it is also the greatest number of potentially habitable planets found around a single star, for all seven planets, particularly the three in the "habitable zone," could contain liquid water under the right atmospheric conditions.
We wish Spitzer bon voyage and give our thanks for its amazing legacy, while looking forward to the great discoveries sure to come from the James Webb Space Telescope, expected to launch next year! 🔭

Are you going to Mars?
Okay well how about the Humans to Mars Summit??? A great three day conference in Washington DC where all your favorite space brains come together to talk about how we are actually going to get Humans to Mars.
Hosted by Explore Mars (@𝐞𝐱𝐩𝐥𝐨𝐫𝐞𝐦𝐚𝐫𝐬) the line up this year is incredible. Presenters include AstroAthens (@𝐚𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐨𝐚𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐧𝐬), Kellie Gerardi (@𝐤𝐞𝐥𝐥𝐢𝐞𝐠𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐫𝐝𝐢), Tanya Harrison, Ellen Stofan (@𝐞𝐥𝐥𝐞𝐧𝐬𝐭𝐨𝐟𝐚𝐧), Jim Green (Chief Scientist of NASA) and Janet Ivery (@𝐣𝐚𝐧𝐞𝐭𝐬𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐞𝐭𝐨𝐟𝐟𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐥). Along side these public space figures we have more speakers from NASA, Space News, and space companies. Plus @𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐞𝐬𝐩𝐚𝐜𝐞𝐝𝐮𝐝𝐞 and yours truly (@𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐣𝐚𝐧𝐞𝐞𝐫𝐠𝐢𝐫𝐥) will be there so you know it's a party.
This is the WHO'S WHO event of the space world. AND EARLY REGISTRATION ENDS FRIDAY! Get your tickets now for May 12-14 and spend the week the Explore Mars. Link in bio! 👈
