「あかり」超新星残骸に一酸化炭素を検出

A scientific team using the Japanese AKARI infrared space observatory finds carbon monoxide (CO) molecules in the ten million degree gas associated with the young supernova remnant Cassiopeia A (Cas A).

Cúmulo NGC 133 (Cr 3; OCl 296). Es un pequeño cúmulo abierto en la constelación de Casiopea. Ubicado cerca de la estrella κ Cassiopeiae; consiste en un puñado de estrellas. Los límites no son fácilmente identificables: se ve como un ligero engrosamiento de asteres diminutos , dispuestos en forma de una Y invertida. Es parte de un grupo de cúmulos abiertos, incluyendo NGC 146 y el disperso Rey 14. Consta de unas veinte estrellas, entre ellas la estrella doble BD + 6293.

Ina Caldera sits atop a low, broad volcanic dome or shield volcano, where lavas once oozed from the moon’s crust. The darker patches in the photo are blobs of older lunar crust. As in the photo of Maskelyne, they form a series of low mounds higher than the younger, jumbled terrain around them. Credit: NASA

Were Lunar Volcanoes Active When Dinosaurs Roamed the Earth?

MARS.- ancient volcanic terrain have had volcanic activities.   May 4, 2007 — NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit has discovered evidence of an ancient volcanic explosion at "Home Plate," a plateau of layered bedrock approximately 2 meters (6 feet) high within the "Inner Basin" of Columbia Hills, at the rover's landing site in Gusev Crater.  This is the first explosive volcanic deposit identified with a high degree of confidence by Spirit or its twin, Opportunity.Share This:Related…

A new look at an ancient volcanic blast on Mars suggests that the Red Planet was much more Earth-like billions of years ago, with abundant surface water and a relatively thick atmosphere, scientists say.
