Explore Tycho Brahe, The Universe, and more!

Tycho's supernova remnant, the result of a stellar explosion first recorded over 400 years ago by the famous astronomer Tycho Brahe.  The expanding gas cloud is extremely hot, while slightly different expansion speeds have given the cloud a puffy appearance

This composite image of the Tycho supernova remnant shows the scene more than four centuries after the brilliant star explosion witnessed by Tycho Brahe and other astronomers of that era. The explosion has left a.

Explosive Studies of Universe's Expansion Win Nobel Prize in Physics

This image comes from a very deep Chandra observation of the Tycho supernova remnant. Low-energy X-rays (red) in the image show expanding debris from the supernova explosion and high energy X-rays (blue) show the blast wave, a shell of extremely energetic

Black hole

In August of 2007 astronomers located a gigantic hole in the universe. This empty space, stretching nearly a billion light-years across, is devoid of any matter. A radical and controversial theory proposes that it is a "Universe-in-mass Black hole"

A spectacular Hubble Space Telescope image reveals the heart of the Lagoon Nebula. Seen as a massive cloud of glowing dust and gas, bombarded by the energetic radiation of new stars, this placid name hides a dramatic reality. The Advanced Camera for.

Simeis 147 (Spaghetti Nebula) is a large SuperNova remnant in the constellations of Taurus & Auriga. It is the result of a SN explosion about years ago. It is 3000 light years away and about 140 light years across - Massive!

Keyhole Nebula - A portion of the Carina Nebula is known as the Keyhole Nebula (NGC 3324), a name given to it by John Herschel in the 19th century.  The Keyhole Nebula is actually a much smaller and darker cloud of cold molecules and dust, containing bright filaments of hot, fluorescing gas, silhouetted against the much brighter background nebula.

A portion of the Carina Nebula is known as the Keyhole Nebula (NGC the name that was given by John Herschel in the century.
