According to a new report, comet ISON is expected to have flown too close to sun. Scientists have hoped that the comet from far of the solar system will emerge a streaming tail, which will be visible from naked eyes in December.

SpaceX to Launch Falcon 9 in Few Days

SpaceX to Launch Falcon 9 in Few Days

Falcon9 is a rocket launched by SpaceX on 28 November on the eve of Thanksgiving Day blastoff from Cape Canaveral. But, unfortunately the rocket came down within one second of its blast because computers sensed that it took very large time for its nine engines to build up thrust.

A countdown was also started by scientists later on as they were planning to launch it again. But, that attempt also went into vain as engineers were unable to analyze data from the engine cutoff. They were late in analyzing the data by about one minute.

A Telescope Captured Birth and Death of Stars

A Telescope Captured Birth and Death of Stars

According to a new report by scientists, birth and death of stars have been captured by the European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope in Chile. Scientists have got a new image showing birth and death of stars in nearest galaxy, the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC).

The image also shows remains of supernova explosion, which was caused by death of massive star because of shortage of fuel. The LMC is located at distance of about 163,000 light-years from surface of earth and can be easily seen from the Southern Hemisphere through naked eyes.

Comet ISON Shows Signs of Breaking as it Starts its Sun-Gazing Drive

Comet ISON Shows Signs of Breaking as it Starts its Sun-Gazing Drive

According to a latest report, the most anticipated comet in so many years is almost in trouble. The ISON comet, according to the scientists, has begun with its sun-gazing drive.

The scientists have started suspecting that the most observed ISON, which is a bright and beautiful comet, is just about to fall apart in the near future.

According to sources, this comet was discovered by the researchers last year and since then it has raised the expectations of the speculators to witness a spectacular light show early next month.

Comet Fans Expected a Celestial Feast on Thanksgiving Day

According to a latest report, astronomers will be focusing their lenses to witness the unusual comet passing near the sun on the Thanksgiving Day; while on the other hand, all the other people will be sitting down for the Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday.

According to the researchers the comet ISON is one of its own kinds. Also, this comet has been hyped as the comet of the century, by according to the researchers it might not live up to the expectations of the people to such an extent.

Supernovas are Capable of Lighting-up an Entire Galaxy

Supernovas are Capable of Lighting-up an Entire Galaxy

A rare celestial phenomenon about the explosion of most of the material in a star resulting in an extremely bright short-lived object that emits vast amounts of energy is called a supernova.

A supernova explosion makes the sky observable because of its quality of a reverse shockwave speeding back towards the explosion's center at a speed of up to Mach 1000.

According to researchers, Mach 1000 amounts to about 340,000 meters per second, or about 760,000 miles per hour.

Scientists at South Pole Finds Collection of Neutrinos

A group of neutrinos from space has been found by scientists at the South Pole. These neutrinos would assist in clarifying the origins of the universe. The findings will be revealed by a group from the IceCube telescope laboratory in Antarctica in tomorrow's Science journal.

The experts think that their 28 intergalactic subatomic particles has came from exterior of the Solar System as well as from outside our galaxy, the Milky Way. These particles are implanted in one cubic kilometer of polar ice.

Researchers Find 3 New Galaxies That Appear to Merge into One

According to a latest research, a trio of prehistoric galaxies has been discovered by the astronomers. The astronomers have found about these galaxies by using the power of the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) telescope and NASA's Hubble Space Telescope.

According to the scientists these primordial galaxies have been nestled inside a massive blob of primeval gas. It has also been sighted by the researchers that these galaxies are about 13 billion light-years away from the planet Earth.
