Comet C/2015 ER61-b, a fragment of comet C/2015 ER61 Panstarrs: 17 June 2017

By Gianluca Masi

During our last observation of comet C/2015 ER61 Panstarrs we spotted an apparent fragment, now named C/2015 ER61-b. We did send these info to both the Minor Planet Center and the Central Bureau for Astronomical Telegrams and the former just issued a circular announcing it.

NASA's Opportunity Mars rover passed near this small, relatively fresh crater in April 2017, during the 45th anniversary of the Apollo 16 mission to the moon. The rover team chose to call it "Orion Crater," after the Apollo 16 lunar module. The rover's Panoramic Camera (Pancam) recorded this view, presented in enhanced color to make differences in surface materials more easily visible.

The crater's diameter is about 90 feet (27 meters). From the small amount of erosion or filling that Orion Crater has experienced, its age is estimated at no more than 10 million years. It lies on the western rim of Endeavour Crater. For comparison, Endeavor is about 14 miles (22 kilometers) in diameter and more than 3.6 billion years old.

This view combines multiple images taken through three different Pancam filters. The selected filters admit light centered on wavelengths of 753 nanometers (near-infrared), 535 nanometers (green) and 432 nanometers (violet).

The component images were taken on April 26, 2017, during the 4,712th Martian day, or sol, of Opportunity's work on Mars. The rover's location on that sol, during its approach toward "Perseverance Valley" on the Endeavour rim, is indicated on a map at https://mars.jpl.nasa.gov/mer/mission/tm-opportunity/images/MERB_Sol4711_1.jpg as the endpoint of the Sol 4711 drive.

Apollo 16 astronauts John Young and Charles Duke flew in the Orion lunar module to and from the first human landing in the lunar highlands while Ken Mattingly orbited the moon in the command module, Casper. On the moon, Young and Duke investigated Plum Crater, which is approximately the same size as Mars' Orion Crater.

## update: More bills rolling in. $14,000 for one scan set, another $3,250 for another scan. On top of the thousa ds I already owe. I am desperate, I had to move, have the medical expenses and meds...please share this far and wide and if you can, help would be greatly appreciated! ##


I am asking once again for help. I have a goFundMe set up, to help me with medical costs. my dr bills keep piling up, and before long I will have more bills thanks to the forthcoming cancer tests. I am getting desperate!

I live on $707/month, with the bulk going towards meds and medical related expenses. That leaves virtually no "discretionary" funds, no surplus, no savings. No way to pay the back medical bills.

I am also about to enter the "coverage gap" for my prescription insurance which will skyrocket one of my meds to roughly $450/bottle [a month] which I can not afford [so I will have to risk rationing starting now]

Some 60 million light years away in the southern constellation Corvus, two large galaxies are colliding. Stars in the two galaxies, cataloged as NGC 4038 and NGC 4039, very rarely collide in the course of the ponderous cataclysm that lasts for hundred of million of years. But the galaxies' large cloud of molecular gas and dust often do, triggering furious episode of star formation near the center of the cosmic wreckage.

2017 Eclipse: Earth, Moon, and Sun
 
A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth, casting its shadow on the Earth. The shadow comprises two concentric cones called the umbra and the penumbra. Observers on the Earth who are within the smaller, central umbra see the Sun completely blocked. Within the larger penumbra, the Sun is only partially blocked.
 
In this animation, the Earth, Moon, Sun, and shadow cones are viewed through a telescopic lens on a virtual camera located far behind the Earth. Long focal lengths like the one used here appear to compress the distance between near and far objects. Despite appearances, the geometry of the scene is correct. The Moon's umbra cone is roughly 30 Earth diameters long, barely enough to reach the Earth, while the Sun is almost 400 times farther away.

In this animation, the Earth, Moon, Sun, and shadow cones are viewed through a telescopic lens on a virtual camera located far behind the Earth. Long focal lengths like the one used here appear to compress the distance between near and far objects. Despite appearances, the geometry of the scene is correct. The Moon's umbra cone is roughly 30 Earth diameters long, barely enough to reach the Earth, while the Sun is almost 400 times farther away.
 
From this perspective, we see the night sides of both the Earth and the Moon. Solar eclipses can only occur during New Moon, when the entire Earth-facing side of the Moon is experiencing nighttime darkness.

NEUTRON STAR PRODUCING POWERFUL BEAMS OF RADIATION ALONG THE AXES OF ITS MAGNETIC FIELD. These beams sweep past the Earth like the beam from a lighthouse, producing flashes of radio radiation. NICER will probe the inner workings of neutron stars from it orbital perch on the #ISS. Around 2000 neutron stars which produce this lighthouse effect are being observed, and these are now known as pulsars. Among these 2000 is a class of pulsar which is the most accurate form of clock in the known universe, and we can use that property to measure the changing shape of spacetime between the pulsar and the Earth, and also to measure the density of the gas in the space between stars (the interstellar medium).

En junio de 2015 los astrónomos detectaron una nueva luz en el cielo que les dejó completamente atónitos. Parecía tratarse de una explosión de supernova tan excepcionalmente brillante, que doblaba en intensidad a la que para entonces tenía el récord. Durante su punto álgido, aquella colosal explosión, que fue designada como «ASASSN-15lh», fue 20 veces más brillante que toda la Vía Láctea.

Los astrónomos enfocaron los telescopios hacia el lugar de origen de aquel evento. Y más de un después de su detección, han publicado un estudio en la revista Nature Astronomy en el que han propuesto una explicación para aquella emisión de luz. Sorprendentemente, han descartado que se tratara de una supernova. Su hipótesis es que un agujero negro supermasivo situado a 3.800 millones de años luz de la Tierra y que gira en aquel lugar a una increíble velocidad, engulló una estrella comparable al Sol. Este asesinato estelar emitió una inmensa cantidad de energía al espacio.

«Durante diez meses hemos observado la fuente de luz y hemos concluido que la explicación no está relacionada con una supernova extraordinariamente brillante», ha dicho en un comunicado Giorgos Leloudas, astrofísico en el Instituto Weizmann de Ciencia (Israel) y director de la investigación. «Nuestros resultados sugieren que el evento fue creado probablemente por un agujero negro supermasivo que gira a alta velocidad cuando destruyó una estrella de masa media», ha propuesto.

Tal como han explicado los investigadores, la explosión de energía ocurrió cuando un agujero negro desgarró una estrella de tipo solar que pasó demasiado cerca. Primero, la estrella quedó capturada por la gravedad del agujero. Después el tirón fue desgarrando las capas más externas de plasma de su cuerpo. Esto generó lo que se suele conocer como evento de disrupción de marea, un fenómeno que hasta ahora ha sido observado 10 veces: finalmente, la gravedad del agujero negro tiró con tal fuerza de las capas de gas más externas de la estrella, que consiguió despedazarla, literalmente.

Así, la que hasta ese momento había sido una esfera llena de vitalidad, quedó convertida en un gigantesco espagueti de plasma y energía que giro a giro fue enrollándose como si estuviera enganchado a un tenedor.

Como el agujero negro que se la tragó estaba girando, ese espagueti se fue transformando en un disco de acreción que cada vez giraba más rápido y que finalmente generó un estallido de energía sin precedentes en el registro de los astrónomos.

El acto final ocurrirá cuando dentro de unos años la estrella sea totalmente engullida por la oscuridad, y finalmente su historia quede separada del tejido del espacio-tiempo observado desde la Tierra.

Tan brillante como el Sol
De esta forma, aunque la estrella era de tamaño mediano y a su muerte nunca habría generado una explosión de supernova, el asesinato perpetrado por el agujero la hizo brillar como nunca antes.

Para hacerse una idea de la potencia del resultado, si esto hubiera ocurrido a una distancia de la Tierra equivalente a la de la estrella Sirio, a 8,6 años luz, y no a 3.800 millones de años, su intensidad habría bastado para alcanzar una magnitud aparente similar a la del Sol.

Los investigadores basaron sus conclusiones en múltiples observaciones hechas en varias estaciones terrestres, como la del «Very Large Telescope», en el Observatorio Europeo Austral (ESO) y el vetusto telescopio espacial Hubble (de la ESA y la NASA), entre otros.

La hipótesis de la disrupción de marea
«Hay muchos aspectos que sugieren que este evento fue realmente provocado por un evento de disrupción de marea y no por una supernova superluminosa», ha dicho Morgan Fraser, coautor del estudio e investigador en la Universidad de Cambridge.

Entre esos aspectos, los astrónomos han destacado que pudieron identificar tres fases durante los diez meses en los que duraron las observaciones, un hecho que concuerda con la hipótesis de la disrupción.

Además detectaron un aumento de emisión de luz ultravioleta y un incremento de la temperatura que hacen menos probable que se trate de una supernova, en su opinión. Por último, el lugar donde ocurrió el fenómeno, una galaxia roja y de gran tamaño, no es el típico donde se esperaría encontrar una supernova superluminosa, más propias de galaxias pequeñas y repletas de jóvenes estrellas azules.

Sin embargo, si bien los científicos han dejado claro que la explicación de la supernova no es válida, también ha resaltado que un evento de disrupción de marea tampoco puede explicar lo que ocurrió allí. Salvo que se hagan algunas modificaciones.

Agujero negro de Kerr
«El evento de disrupción de marea que proponemos no puede ser explicado con un agujero negro supermasivo no giratorio. Sostenemos que ASASSN-15lh fue uno de estos eventos pero que fue generado por un tipo de agujero negro muy particular». En concreto, un agujero negro de Kerr.

La masa de la galaxia donde ocurrió ASASSN-15lh implica que este agujero negro supermasivo del centro tendría una masa de 100 millones de Soles. Esto a su vez implica que el agujero negro tendría unas dimensiones que le impedirían desgarrar a una estrella más allá del horizonte de sucesos (la zona a partir de la cual nada, ni la luz, puede escapar del agujero). Entonces, ¿cómo pudo hacerlo?

Las fuerzas de marea suelen ser más intensas en las cercanías los agujeros negros pequeños (estelares) que en las proximidades de los agujeros negros supermasivos. Pero esto cambia con los agujeros negros de Kerr, cuerpos que están girando muy rápidamente.

«Incluso con toda la información que hemos recogido, no podemos concluir con certeza que ASASSN-15lh fue creado por un evento de disrupción de marea», ha concluido Leloudas.___

Bright from the Heart Nebula

Explanation: What's that inside the Heart Nebula? First, the large emission nebuladubbed IC 1805 looks, in whole, like a human heart. The nebula glows brightly in red light emitted by its most prominent element: hydrogen. The red glow and the larger shape are all created by a small group of stars near the nebula's center. In the center of the Heart Nebula are young stars from the open star cluster Melotte 15 that are eroding away several picturesque dust pillars with their energetic light and winds. The open cluster of stars contains a few bright stars nearly 50 times the mass of our Sun, many dim stars only a fraction of the mass of our Sun, and an absent microquasar that was expelled millions of years ago.
