La reliquia funeraria de las primeras estrellas del universo

Ancient gas cloud relic of first stars? Astronomers see this cloud just billion years after the Big Bang. It has a tiny percentage of heavy elements, those forged in subsequent generations of stars.

NGC 6537: the Red Spider Nebula is a planetary nebula in the constellation Sagittarius. The central white dwarf, the remaining compact core of the original star, produces a powerful and hot (≈10,000 K) wind blowing with a speed of 300 kilometers per second, which has generated waves 100 billion kilometres high. The star at the center of the Red Spider Nebula is surrounded by a dust shell. Surface temperature is probably 150,000-250,000 K. Distance estimated as 1900 light years. (Wikipedia)

Red Spider Planetary Nebula The Red Spider Planetary Nebula shows the complex structure that can result when a normal star ejects its outer gases and becomes a white dwarf star.

Titan, Saturn's largest moon has 200 kilometer thick ice layer and 300 kilometer thick ocean

Saturn’s hazy Titan is now on the short list of moons that likely harbor a subsurface ocean of water, based on new findings from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft.

NASA’s recently launched Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, is returning early images that confirm an unprecedented new capability for scientists to better understand our sun's dynamic processes.

A full-disk multiwavelength extreme ultraviolet image of the sun taken by SDO on March False colors trace different gas temperatures. Reds are relatively cool (about Kelvin, or F); blues and greens are hotter (greater than 1 million Kelvin, or F).
