Hubble Space Telescope Is Turning 28, Peers Inside Lagoon Nebula To Celebrate

Hubble Space Telescope Is Turning 28, Peers Inside Lagoon Nebula To Celebrate

The very large number of stars seen in infrared, but missing from the visible-light image, are mostly located in the distant background, far behind the nebula itself.

NASA recently released the images of Lagoon Nebula taken by Hubble to celebrate the 28th anniversary of the revolutionary space telescope. To celebrate Hubble's legacy and the long global partnership that makes it possible, each year ESA and NASA celebrate the telescope's birthday with a spectacular new image. It shows the heart of the Lagoon Nebula, a region about 4 light-years across.

This year, the star of the anniversary show is the Lagoon Nebula, a colossal hub of star birth that's 55 light-years wide and 20 light-years tall.

Throughout the Hubble Space Telescope's time catching a part of the massive Lagoon Nebula, NASA researchers were hard at work determining Herschel 36.

The giant star, called Herschel 36, is bursting out of its natal cocoon of material, unleashing blistering radiation and torrential stellar winds, which are streams of subatomic particles, that push dust away in curtain-like sheets.

Legendary Patriots Voice Gil Santos Dead At 78
Santos will be remembered by millions in the New England region for his record-breaking 36 years of broadcasting Patriots games. Over the next dozen years, he split time between the two New Bedford stations, as well as Fall River signals WSAR and WALE.

The scientists have found out that the Herschel 36 is nearly 32 times larger than our sun and also much warmer than our Sun. Herschel 36 likewise beats the sun with its temperature level. However, scientists believe that the sun will outlive Herschel 36. It is only about 1 million years old, and is expected to live in its current phase for another 5 million years, given its mass. NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA), which jointly run the Hubble mission, release great photos every April to celebrate these milestones. Jeletic noted that thanks to the Hubble Space Telescope, NASA was able to learn more about scientific discoveries such as dark energy and was able to capture Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 making an impact on Jupiter.

"From a science perspective, Hubble has changed our fundamental understanding of the universe".

One taken in visible light reveals a rainbow of space gas and dust, while the other taken in infrared reveals countless cosmos and the bright star at the center of the nebula. "It has allowed us to refine our knowledge in some areas and discovered things that we never knew existed".

CNET reported that since the Hubble Space Telescope launched on April 24, 1990, the telescope has made over 1.5 million observations and captured images of more than 43,500 celestial objects. NASA also challenged stargazers to find ten new galaxies and two clusters that were added to the Messler Catalog.
