"Epsilon gase together with stars mark cab algae neighb- steet and offering dramatically form. The astor ism or pattern of stars known as the great square of pegasus abani of brian. Naked eye stars shape like a huge square in the sky. One of the stars in the constellation is fifty one gase which was the first main sequence star beyond our son to be discovered to host the planet fifty one. Big gase is a satellite star located fifty point. Four five lie is away. Hits planet or more accurately exoplanet mini extra. Solar planet is designated fifty. One begets he. A the planet's discovery was announced in october. The six thousand nine hundred ninety five in the journal nature it was detected using the radio velocity or so-called wobble method with the scope used to detect very slight but regular doppler shift changes in the staff spectral lines caused by the gravitational pull of the planet pulling the style one way and then the other as the planet orbits around fifty one She is about half the mass of jupiter and orbits rabbits host Every four earth days at a distance of just seven million kilometers at the time a gas giant orbiting so closely around the star was something that had never been seen before and this led to the creation of a new category of planets known as hot jupiters a category of gas giants though to a foam further out from their host stars beyond the so called snow line but which then migrated inwards towards their current positions the discovery led to the realize that the gas giant vow solar system jupiter and saturn also migrated inwards closer to the sun during their early formation. Something which explains many of the features of our own solar system including the late heavy bombardment the asteroid belt and some unique characteristics of the ice giants neptune and uranus as well as the mass distribution of the foreign terrestrial world's mercury venus earth mars also visible in pegasus is the m fifteen or seven zero seven eight globular cluster which is located about thirty three thousand six hundred light years away globular class this a tight spheres containing thousands millions of stars all originally formed at the same time in the same molecular gessen. Dust cloud many thought to be the cause of small galaxies that have been cannibalized by larger ones. Our milky way galaxy contains at least one hundred fifty globular clusters. M15 is estimated to be around billion years old making it one of the oldest known globular classes and it contains an estimated hundred thousand stars making it. What are the most densely packed globular clusters in the milky way galaxy. Its core is undergoing contraction known as core collapse and it has a central density cost with an enormous number of stars which appear to be surrounding. What may will be essential blackhall m fifty in oregon dane's at least one hundred and twelve variable stars eight pulsars including one double neutrons assest them and the first ever planetary nebula found in globular kosta. Now if you're away from city lights you may notice a fuzzy patch in the sky. Right next to pegasus and that is the majestic giant spiral galaxy. M thirty one and drama and drama is the biggest galaxy in the local galactic group. It's located some two point. Five million light years away estimates suggest that contains over a trillion stars twice that of the milky way and is some two hundred twenty thousand light years across. If you can't see it too well don't worry. It's getting closer every day you see. The milky way and andromeda galaxy's are expected to collide in about three point seven to four point five billion years from now eventually merging former will be an you giant elliptical galaxy another case of galactic cannibalism in action now based on current students and drummer piece to have more all the stars in the milky way it also appears to have foulis. You stopped production. The milky way the milky way producing about one use solar mass star every year and the rate of supernova in the milky way is also a bad double the rate of andromeda and dromedaries sarabhai a- lodge and massive halo of heart gas estimated to contain about half the mass of the stars in the galaxy. This nearly invisible halo stretches about a million light years from its host galaxy that means that rich is almost halfway out to the milky way now usually a good pair of binoculars or a small backyard telescope. You'll even get to see. The dust lay in andromeda spiral arms. And it sprite central galactic core which contains a monster supermassive black hole now located slightly to the east and south of pegasus. You'll see the anti constellation of sadist. The great whales sea monster beat us city. Oh then it. Caters is the brightest star in the constellation. Seaters it's an orange giant located about ninety six light years away by the way that name didn't chaos well it means the whale's tail one of the other stars in status is mirror the first variable star evidence covered located some four hundred twenty light years away mirror pulsating brightness over a period of three hundred thirty two earth days changing in diameter from about four hundred to five hundred times the diameter of the sun city traditional cord men gather knows is a red hued giant star. Some two hundred and twenty light years away. Now it's actually a double star system with a secondary star ninety three city being a blue watch. Dial some four hundred and forty light is away. Another double star is gamma city. The head of the whale. The primary is a yellow star eighty-two light years from earth while the secondary so blue sta eleven point nine lie is away. The yellow dwarf tau city is the nearest sunlight side of the earth other than the sun. Okay looking south of sita's now and you'll see the brilliant star echina- which means the river's end as it marks. The end of the river danis every dentist is the six largest the modern constellations and the one that extends furthest in the sky from north. To south. echinacea is a binary system and the primary star offer. Kidney actually consists of two stars alpha rodney a in bay located some one hundred and thirty nine light years away off the ten brightest stars in the night sky. Alpha ridden is the hottest in blue collar. That's judah echina- being spectral type b blue main sequence star echina- also has an unusually rapid rotational velocity causing it become a played in shape the second star. The system is a smaller spectra. Tap a what style which orbits the primary at a distance of about twelve astronomical units and astronomical unit is the average distance between the earth and the sun about one hundred and fifty million kilometres or just over eight light minutes now if you follow era danis towards the aced you'll find the constellation.

It's the remnant of his style which chinese astronomy missouri exploded supernova back on the fourth of july the eight ten fifty four they recorded the sudden appearance of a new star on this guy shots at exactly the position of the crab nebula their record show the supernova repeated brighter than the planet venus for weeks on end before finally fading from view after about two years is the shock shockwave from the crab nebula supernova explosion is continuing to blast our words expanding at a rate of about five million kilometers per hour at the heart of the nebula is a rapidly spinning neutron star a pulsa rotating at some thirty pulses per second as it rotates it shines a beam like a lighthouse speaking sweeping across the galaxy. This beam emits radiation at all wavelengths from gamma rays and x rays right through ultraviolet optical and infrared even into the radio waves observations indicate the pulsar is slowing down and will full the just half its current rotational rate in the next thousand years november is also a great check at the plate or seven sisters one the nearest open star clusters to worth also known as m forty five. That played is located in the constellation. Taurus the bull at a composed mostly of hot blue white stars now depending on whose measurements you prefer the play. These are somewhere between one hundred eighteen in one hundred thirty seven six away a pass being around three point. Two six lie is the amazing thing about the play. These is that different cultures from vastly different parts of earth have all described the played in the same way as seven women seven sisters and this could possibly be some sort of ancient throwback to early human out of africa civilization just like october. November sees three meteo showers. There's the november orion ed's the towards in the leonids although peaking little tub the orion continuing to sprinkle dadge during the start november and it usually at the best during the wee small house before dawn they generated by the debris trail left behind by the comet halley and appear to radiate out from the direction of the constellation orion the hunter the towards meteo shower a generated by the comment anki and as their name suggests they appear to radiate out from the constellation taurus. The bowl inky and the towards a believed to be the remnants of a lodge comet which disintegrated between twenty and thirty thousand years ago breaking into several pieces and releasing material both by normal cometary ablation and also occasionally by close gravitational encounters with the earth and other planets effect. The comedy strip of material left by anke is the largest in the inner solar system being so spread out the eighth take several weeks to pass through it causing an extended period of meteorology activity compared to the much smaller periods of activity of other media xiao's and further gravitational interactions with jupiter. Have caused that. Towards to be segmented into separate northern seven streams the southern torrance usually lasts from around september the twenty fifth to november the twenty fifth while the northern towards go from october the twelfth to december the second but the towards they downside they quite diffuse usually producing about seven meteors an hour however they are composed of more massive material think of pebbles instead of dust grains and so they tend to produce a high percentage of very bright meteo zone as fireballs purchased as large meteoroid burn through the atmosphere. The southern torres put on their best show just after midnight on november the fifth. Finally there's the lien it's media show which will pick on the eighteenth the leeann. It's usually pretty reliable with fifteen miles an hour. However they have been known to occasionally produce spectacular media storms with showers in nineteen ninety. Nine two thousand and one and two thousand two produc- and amazing three thousand units meteors and our even more spectacular with the leonids mediocre share of nineteen sixty six which generated thousands of meteors per minute falling like illuminated rain. The leonids are usually picked up after midnight with pace carrying just before dawn. They produce by the debris stream from the comet temple title and as the name suggests the leonids radiate out from the constellation. Live the line.

Massive half a gram and a renowned for generating bright meteors sinus estimate the annual liens meteo shower deposits between twelve and thirteen tons particles across the planet every year and our the look at the rest of the november night skies on sky watch. We're joined by jonathan alley the editor of strain sky and telescope magazine. Someone just about for in the southern hemisphere days are getting longer and brought her and everything. The weather's getting warmer winter. Of course it's coming up there in the north in the northern much for us at summer we have to contend with dialogue citing which sort of messes up on stock. Guys you get some people It doesn't actually change what you can say but changes the type of guy so anyway we can. We can deal with that. But let's see what's happening in the mid evening sky in november from wherever you go out there and have a look mid evening. The milky way is hugging the garage and particularly hugging the western horizon. So you need to clear sort of you know trees and buildings and houses and things and you'll see pile of scorpius because question school because of course copious just sticking up over the horizon to disappear from view. Scorpius is really year a constellation. That's when you get the best of it so now we're in the end of the year. It's hearing the calculation said deteriorate knicks. Still say that for the moment above the western horizon when you look towards secretary looking in the direction of the center of our milky way galaxy up in the north if you look in the north part of the sky for us in the seventeen this guy in the nova industry that it's still with a bunch of big constellations that don't have many brought stars even talking pegasus pisces.

"After successfully completing its final tests. Nassar's james webb space telescope is now being prepared for shipment to the launch pad the ten billion dollar orbiting observatories slated to launch aboard an ariane five rocket from the european space agency's curious spaceport in french kiana. On december the eighteenth put simply james. Webb will replace hubble as the world's premier space science observatory. It's the largest and most powerful space telescope ever built but whereas hobble looked mostly invisible light. James webb will focus on the infrared. That's because it'll be capable of looking so far back in space time that light from distant stars would have been stretched into the infrared by the expansion of the universe looking back over thirteen and a half billion years. James webb will see light from the very first stars and galaxies that formed just a few hundred million years after the big bang itself. It'll solve mysteries in our solar system. Look beyond the distant worlds around other stars and probe the mysterious stretches and origins of the universe and our place within it engineers have now completed. James webs extensive comprehensive test program at north route gremlins redondo beach facilities in california. These tests were designed to ensure that the world's most complex base is observatory will operate as it's meant to once it's in space you see. Unlike the hubble space telescope which is low orbit and could be service by the space shuttle. James webb will be positioned some one point five million kilometers away and said too far away for any problems. Such as hubbell's knee sightedness to be corrected if they show up for telescope is complex as james webb shipping operations to career will be extremely complex with specialized contamination control technicians transport engineers and logistics taskforce's working together to protect telescope capturing transport while shipment operations were underway teams located.

"Astronomers have discovered the shortest epa gamma-ray burst the huge blast identified as gib. Two thousand eight twenty six was coolest by the supernova implosion of a massive star in a distant galaxy. The blast was so powerful. It admitted fourteen million times the energy released by the time. Qa galaxy in the space of just zero point six five seconds most gamma-ray bursts usually more than twice as long producing what are usually described as the brightest most energetic events since the big bang astronomers divide gamma-ray burst into two broad categories based on their duration short period gamma-ray bursts blazing the life in less than two seconds and i thought to be caused by the merging of neutron stars in a binary system neutron stars of the dentist objects in the universe other than black holes. They formed that at the core collapse of massive stars at the end of their lives. Compressing still a comb more. The one point four times the mass of the sun into an object just a dozen or so kilometers wide. The material of neutron stars is as dense as the nucleus of an atom and a single teaspoon of neutron star material would w- as much as mount everest as well as their incredible density. Neutron stars are also intensely hot and possess magnetic fields millions to billions of times stronger than that of the earth long-duration gamma-ray bursts. there's lasting more than two seconds. I thought the because by the implosion of some of the universe's most massive stars at the end of their lives stars. Run out of the hydrogen. That's a stains nuclear reactions in there. 'cause the thing that makes a stash shine without the stabilizing pressure of these reactions starts can't fight gravity they collapse into exotic stellar remnant. The massive start determines its fate star smaller than the one point four times. The mass of the sun will shrink into white dwarves well largest is collapsing the neutron stars and the largest of all collapsed entirely forming black holes an object with such intense gravity. Nothing not even light can escape when a star is massive enough to collapse in a black hole mass wills towards the black caller around and accretion disk and some of it manages to escape in the form of two powerful jets that rush outwards almost the speed of light in opposite directions perpendicular to the accretion disc astronomers only detected gamma-ray bursts when one of these jets points almost directly towards the earth. Each these jets is drilling through the collapsing star producing pulse of gamma rays. The highest form of energy. This can last seconds to minutes father. The gamma-ray bursts disrupted star directly expands into a supernova however a report in the journal nature. Astronomy suggests that the incredibly short burst of gib. Two thousand eight twenty six a piece of being created by a supernova event rather than a neutron star merger studies lead author. Thomas amanda from the university of maryland says the discovery sits on the brink between successful and foued gamma-ray burst a mandarin colleagues. Believe it was so short despite being produced by supernova because the jets the gamma rays that emerged from the collapsing star. Weren't strong enough to completely escape. The star almost failing to produce the gamma-ray burst long gamma-ray bursts are associated with a specific type of core collapse supernova which lacked spectrum. Signatures for silicon. That's because are hypothesized to have lost more of their initial envelope especially helium and these are usually referred to as strip core collapse supernova. The authors use the gym and i north telescope to obtain images of the gamma-ray bursts host galaxy twenty eight forty five and eighty days after the birth was first detected by a network of observatories including necessary. Fermi gamma-ray space telescope event also appeared instruments instruments aboard ness wind mission which orbits a point between the earth and the sun located one point five million kilometers away. The mars odyssey spacecraft with is orbiting the red planet and the european space agency's integral spacecraft jiminez observations allow the authors studied the events fading multi wavelength afterglow and the emerging light that followed the blast allowing them to spot the total horizon energy it signifies a supernova despite the blast location in the galaxy six point six billion light years away if the blast was caused by collapsing star once the afterglow fades away it should brighten again because of the underlying supernova explosion. That discovery suggests that since astronomers observed many more of these supernova than long gamma-ray bursts most collapsing stars fell to produce a gamma-ray bursts the brakes through the outer envelope of the collapsing star. Astronomers think this event was effectively fizzle. One that was close to not happening at all the discovery of gop. Two thousand eight twenty six suggest that some neutron star merger gamma-ray bursts are actually supernova course gamma-ray bursts this report from nasa tv. Nasa's fermi gamma-ray space telescope has spotted the shortest burst of gamma rays. Ever seen from collapsing. Star it challenges the traditional classification of gamma-ray bursts also called grib's short grib's those lasting less than two seconds are thought to occur when orbiting objects like neutron stars spiral together and merge longer bursts come from massive stars at the ends of their lives a black hole forms at the center of the collapsing star. It drives long-lasting jets that drill through the star producing gamma rays when they emerge the star then transforms into a supernova on august. Twenty six twenty twenty fermi detected. gr be lasting about one second instruments on other spacecraft sought to including nastase wind and mars odyssey missions. They helped narrow down the location to a patch of sky in the constellation andromeda. Less than a day after the gr be astronomers identified a fading source of visible light using this wiki transient facility at palomar observatory. This was the bursts afterglow. Nasa swift satellite soon recorded xrays from it and within days ground based radio telescopes observed at two after a few weeks when the afterglow had decayed ground based observatories confirmed the presence of a brightening supernova. This means the gr must have come from a massive collapsing star. Not a merger. Astronomers think this burst called. Gr be twenty eight twenty six a was on the verge of not occurring at all about six point six billion years ago a massive star in a distant galaxy reached the end of its life its core collapsed and formed a black hole which launched near light speed particle jets through the star but just as they breached the surface the jets shutdown producing surprisingly brief. Gr be astronomers think. It's likely some short. Drb's they've detected are miss classified as mergers when instead. They're really bursts from jets. That nearly failed to drill through collapsing stars. We only detect your base when the jets aim in our direction even accounting for this long. Grib's still occur at a lower rate than the supernova type associated with them. this means most collapsing. Massive stars likely failed to produce long-lived jets dying at least from the gamma-ray perspective.

What's next for Solar Orbiter after its historic launch to the sun
"Hey brain stuff lauren. Boban here a newly launched spacecraft promises to broaden our understanding of the sun called solar orbiter or the Solo for short it left Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Central Florida on Sunday February. Ninth at three PM. The new probes part of an international collaboration between NASA and the European Space Agency or ESA both parties contributed to its arsenal of scientific instruments. Some of these gadgets will remotely image the Sun It's atmosphere and the materials it spews forth others are built to keep tabs on the spacecraft's immediate surroundings during the wee hours of February tenth. Two Thousand Twenty European Space Operation Center in Darmstadt Germany got a signal confirming the orbiter's on board solar panels were functioning correctly so begins a seven year plan mission the orbiter is supposed to take to paraphrase. Robert Frost the route less traveled. You see all the planets in our solar system revolve around the sun on the same General Plane. Give or take a few degrees called the ecliptic plane. It's like a giant invisible disk a one that very nearly lines up with Sun's equator most of our space fearing devices are gravitationally confined to this plane but the so low is meant to escape it by exploiting the gravity of Earth and Venus the probe will orbit the sun on a unique and tilted pathway. This unique trajectory will give the solo twenty two close approaches to the Sun as close as twenty six million miles or thirty five million kilometers as well as bringing it within the orbit of Mercury to study the sun's influence on space. It will also give the solo the chance to do something no craft has ever done before take pictures of the solar polls looking down from above or up from below just like Earth. The Sun has a north and South Pole in two thousand eighteen the ESA used data from the probe to satellite trying to determine what the northern pole looks like. But probe to couldn't photograph this region directly. If all goes according to plan the solo will do just that. It's I close pass by. The Sun will be twenty twenty at about a third the distance from the Sun to Earth. And that's just the beginning. Another mission involves SOLO PARTNERING UP WITH BE Parker Solar probe launched in two thousand eighteen. This space craft is able to fly much closer to the sun and the solo ever will comparing the feedback from both probes. Ought to tell us. A great deal about the mysterious phenomenon called solar wind which are streams of charged particles. Any color pictures that the solo gives us should provide relevant insights to the sun's polar probably have a big effect on its atmosphere as a whole along with the winds unleashes. The Solos unique travel plans will put it in contact with intense heat and extreme cold. The new probe is going to revolve around the Sun. Very long very narrow oval shaped orbit as it nears the Star. Things will get rather toasty. And that's why designers fitted solar orbiter with reflective heat shield coated in titanium foil according to NASA this shield stand temperatures as high as nine hundred seventy degrees Fahrenheit or five hundred and twenty degrees Celsius.

NASA Shuts Down Spitzer Space Telescope After 16 Years
"Spitzer space telescope, according to NASA will be decommissioned on January thirtieth of twenty twenty now that is due to the space telescope aging. And this is due to decreased functionality you see Spitzer. It has to rotate two point it's antenna towards the earth to transmit data back to us. And when it does this, it causes its solar panels to turn away from the sun in during. That time the space craft relies on internal solar power in a battery to operate. So every year, that Spitzer has been out there, it's there's solar panels have been tilting further and further away from the sun in scientists at NASA worried that continuing to operate Spitzer would deplete his energy source completely. And if this happens like in the middle of it experiment, they might not be able to retrieve the data that's already on Spitzer, so they need to basically save energy in order to shoot that data back to earth in Spitzer is amazing. Right. So Spitzer was only supposed to last five years in it. Lasted in additional eleven years, in during that time Spitzer gave us some of the most stunning images of Saturn's rings clusters of stars and. A small black hole from a nearby dwarf galaxy amongst a lot of other images. You can check them all out on NASA. It's all free to download free to check out. You can go to NASA dot gov in search for Spitzer or all the Spitzer news and all the everything that's happened with Spitzer throughout its time throughout at sixteen years exoplanets, galaxies everything Nobili stars solar systems. It's all there. Now Spitzer gave us some amazing data some amazing science, but it's going to be replaced by the James Webb space telescope, which is going to launch in twenty twenty one in the James Webb space telescope that J W. It's different than the Spitzer space telescope. It's going to be an L to a second Legrand's point. And it will orbit the sun, one point five million kilometers. It's about a million miles away from the earth
