  • Planetary Nebulae! What is your favorite? 😉

Planetary nebula, any of a class bright nebulae that are expanding shells of luminous gas expelled by dying stars. Observed telescopically, they have a relatively round compact appearance rather than the chaotic patchy shapes of other nebulae—hence their name, which was given because of their resemblance to planetary disks when viewed with the instruments of the late 1700s, when the first planetary nebulae were discovered. Only about 1,800 planetary nebulae have been cataloged.

  • ✨ Right Chandra is studying a in Ursa Major! Nearby in the sky is this galaxy, M81. About 11.6 million light years from Earth, M81 contains a supermassive black hole roughly 15 times the mass of the supermassive black hole in the center of our Milky Way!

  • Right Chandra is studying in Ophiuchus! Nearby in the sky is the bipolar Twin Jet nebula. Bipolar planetary nebulae contain not one, but two stars in their centers. The shape of the jets is likely caused by the motion of the two central stars around each other. The pair of jets seen here is streaming out into  at over 1 million kilometers per hour!

  • Meet the BOSS, the largest structure in the Universe (so far). Astronomers discovered a wall of galaxies 1 billion light years across, larger than anything else yet identified in the cosmos.
