It’s hard to believe that this image of Neptune was taken by a telescope right here on Earth. The incredible image of Neptune was snapped with the MUSE (Multi Unit Spectroscopic Explorer) instrument on the Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile. The instrument was recently upgraded with a new way to see space called laser tomography, and it’s already showing its impressive capabilities.View More Incredible View of Image of Neptune That Was Taken From Earth
Hiuni is a new telescope that is very easy to use for everyone, even those who are a new in this sphere, therefore it is considered as one of the stargazing telescopes for beginners. Smart Hiuni telescope stands for “Hi Universe”, and the slogan is “Nice to meet you”.View More Meet New Smart “Hiuni” Telescope to Discover the Universe
Sci-Fi telescope Stellina or universe of wonders; we are making parallels between these two word combinations. It is something new and amazing that comes to reality. Sci-Fi telescope is called Stellina, which is going to sell on May 10. It is designed and built by the French company Vaonis.View More Sci-Fi Telescope Stellina Has Come to Reality Making Our Lives Amazing
Scientist were waiting to this special moment about many years. Continuously for several months astronomers are planning to focus on their telescopes to Sagittarius A*, the Supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy. A Star is cycling by closely orbiting star, which is probably considering that it is testing Einstein’s theory of general relativity. S-02 Star, which is the name of this star, closely orbits Sagittarius A*. However, S-02 is unique because it is one of the two stars that zoom in the closest to the supermassive black hole in its elliptical orbit, that is to say it is likely to show the effects and results of black hole’s enormous gravitational pull.View More A Star Passes Black Hole: At last Scientists Have Chance Testing Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity
The Giant Magellan Telescope Organization is going to build giant Telescope ever with a mirror. It will be completed in 2025. When it is completed, it will be the largest telescope in the world. It will comprise of seven 8.4m diameter the main segments. The Giant Magellan Telescope will be 10 times more powerful than Hubble Space Telescope. This can allow astronomers to study the space deeper.View More Giant Magellan Telescope which costs about $1 billion
NASA reveals Sunflower-shaped spacecraft which will help to find alien planets. Scientists believe that with the use of this technology, researchers could take direct images of other planets with alien life.
The Sunflower-shaped spacecraft is also unique in that, unlike most space-based instruments, it’s one part of a two-spacecraft observation system. “We can use a pre-existing space telescope to take the pictures,” explains astronomers. The Sunflower-shaped spacecraft will allow it to move around in order to block the light from different stars. NASA’s engineers are optimistic that refining their technology could be the key to major exoplanet discoveries in the future.
For the first time from the moment of opening of the first extra solar planets scientists could see such planet by supervision in the x-ray range with help of Chandra space telescope and the European XMM Newton. The majority known exoplanets (which number at present exceeds 900) opened with help of a so-called transit method — by fixing of small fluctuations of brightness of stars when passing planet against a star disk. Still supervision was conducted only in the optical range, but now scientists managed to see x-ray transit. Thousand candidate exoplanets were found thanks to transits in visible light. At last, the scientists could see one in a X-ray, which is important as gives new information on properties of exoplanets.View More Chandra space telescope pictured exoplanets in a X-ray
Spitzer space telescope transferred pictures of a C/2012 S1 comet of ISON. It becomes the brightest object in the night sky of Earth after the Moon in November, 2013 when it will dive into the Sun to Earth and will take place in dangerous proximity from the star photosphere. The comet of C/2012 S1 comet was open in September, 2012 by the Russian astronomers. The comet in November, 2013 will pass at distance in 1,2 million kilometers from the Sun. At this time brightness of a comet can reach brightness of the full Moon, and it, probably, becomes the brightest in a decade. In December the comet will pass at the minimum distance from Earth, which is about 0,4 radiuses of a terrestrial orbit. Currently the comet is at distance in 3,3 astronomical from the Sun, between orbits of Jupiter and Mars. While it remains invisible to a naked eye, however land and orbital telescopes watch long ago it in the optical and infrared range.View More Spitzer space telescope photographed C/2012 S1 comet before approach with the Sun
