ESO’s VLT (Very Large Telescope)

A glowing laser shines forth from the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope. Piercing the dark Chilean skies, its mission is to help astronomers explore the far reaches of the cosmos. ESO Photo Ambassador Gerhard Hüdepohl was on hand to capture the moment in a stunning portrait of modern science in action. 

We have all gazed up at the night sky and seen the stars gently twinkle as the Earth’s turbulent atmosphere causes their light to shimmer. This is undoubtedly a beautiful sight, but it causes problems for astronomers, who want the crispest possible views. To help them achieve this, professional stargazers use something that sounds as though it has come from science fiction: a laser guide star that creates an artificial star 90 km above the surface of the Earth.

The method by which it achieves this is nothing short of remarkable. The laser energises sodium atoms high in the Earth’s mesosphere, causing them to glow and creating a bright dot that to observers on the ground appears to be a man-made star.

Observations of how this “star” twinkles are fed into the Very Large Telescope’s adaptive optics system, controlling a deformable mirror in the telescope to restore the image of the star to a sharp point. By doing this, the system also compensates for the distorting effect of the atmosphere in the region around the artificial star. The end result is an exceptionally crisp view of the sky, allowing ESO astronomers to make stunning observations of the Universe, almost as though the VLT were above the atmosphere in space.

A Dying Star Puffs a Cosmic Dragon

NGC 5189 is a planetary nebula with an oriental twist. Similar in appearance to a Chinese dragon, these red and green cosmic fireworks are the last swansong of a dying star.

At the end of its life, a star with a mass less than eight times that of the Sun will blow its outer layers away, giving rise to a planetary nebula. Some of these stellar puffballs are almost round, resembling huge soap bubbles or giant planets (hence the name), but others, such as NGC 5189 are more intricate.

In particular, this planetary nebula exhibits a curious “S”-shaped profile, with a central bar that is most likely the projection of an inner ring of gas discharged by the star, seen edge on. The details of the physical processes producing such a complex symmetry from a simple, spherical star are still the object of astronomical controversy. One possibility is that the star has a very close (but unseen) companion. Over time the orbits drift due to precession and this could result in the complex curves on the opposite sides of the star visible in this image.

This image has been taken with the New Technology Telescope at ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile, using the now decommissioned EMMI instrument. It is a combination of exposures taken through different narrowband filters, each designed to catch only the light coming from the glow of a given chemical element, namely hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen.

After I asked for sources, he blocked me like the child he is. My only hope is that he tells me his URL so I can unfollow him.

The denial of facts and science and they say I am using ad hominem? My ass.

It is a matter of the physical, not the mental.

You are wrong in this conversation, and I don’t blame them for blocking you, you were extremely irrational and one sided.

Male body + Female mind means that you identify as a female, but physically, you are still a male and it is immoral to allow somebody with a physical advantage in to an event which is solely physical. If this was a chess tournament, then I would be on your side, as she is female as a non-physical being. Physically, she is still a man and it would be unfair to other women to allow her to play as a woman.

The amount of ad hominems you display is atrocious, I’m going to unfollow  you, because you are just as bad as the feminists you claim to be against. Grow up.

Have you heard of Ban Bossy? It’s the new initiative from Lean In and the Girl Scouts that’s trying to ban “bossy” and similar words that are used to bring down girls that are ambitious, take risks, and speak up. By changing the way we treat girls who lead, hopefully our generation will someday see more women in leadership roles. 

You can watch the 1:00 video with Beyonce, Jane Lynch, Condeleeza Rice, and Jennifer Garner here, or visit the Ban Bossy website

These broads, dames and hussys need to stop being so damn bossy about not referring to the frailer, weaker, fairer sex as ‘bossy’.

There is a HUGE difference between BOSSY and BITCHY. Beyonce makes her own back up dancers BUY THEIR OWN PLANE TICKETS that’s not being a leader that’s being a BITCH. This site is trash.
