It seems to be like that for the black hole in the cluster of galaxies RX J1532.9 3021. It would seem that in fact, it takes everything for itself, blocking the birth of thousands of billions of stars. It is what has been shown in a study based on satellite data from Hubble and Chandra

Water in interplanetary dust

© Afrim Constantin –

U.S. researchers have discovered a new source of water in our solar system and, conceivably, in each star system. The water is generated in interplanetary dust particles under the influence of the solar wind.

Ceres – criovulcanism or sublimation?

© Afrim Constantin –

Water vapors are present around Ceres. A team of researchers is using satellite data from ESA, Herschel. Ceres is the goal of the U.S. spacecraft Dawn: “These directions are the reason for why Ceres has been chosen as the scientific objective of Dawn. Confirmation by the Herschel team inspires us and strengthens our choice,” said

Traffic in orbit?

© Afrim Constantin –

A group of researchers at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has developed and tested the mini- earth satellites that will eventually be used in space to help control traffic in low orbits. The risk of collision with space debris is getting higher. LEO stands for low Earth orbit and is the region of space within

The migration of the planets

© Afrim Constantin –

New research on the objects that orbit in the main asteroid belt shows a wide variability in their composition and size, a sign of the great planetary upheaval during the first billion years of the solar system. The study is published in Nature. This artist’s conception shows how families of asteroids are created. Over the

The link between astronomy and architecture

© Afrim Constantin –

Archaeoastronomy is an interdisciplinary science that is still young, if approached with the right rigor, can lead to important discoveries about the history of architecture, astronomy and human thought.   Source: http://apod.nasa.gov One of the first instincts of man was to contemplate the sky. One of the earliest human activities was the construction of megaliths. Astronomy

On January 22, a supernova was discovered in M82 (SN 2014J) in one of the closest galaxies to the Milky Way, “only” 4 Megaparsec (4 million parsecs) away. Image of Supernova in M82 obtained in Loiano (INAF Bologna) with the telescope GD Cassini 1.5 Meters (tool BFOSC) January 23. G. Altavilla, R. Gualandi. Source: http://apod.nasa.gov On
