The Geological Time Scale - The Geologic Time Scale is a way scientists understand the timespan of our planet based on empirical and fossil-based evidence. This evidence is used to try and place events in Earth’s history. Many things on our planet, such as the formation of mountains, or the draining of lakes by rivers, take millions of years. The creation of life on earth and the extinction of life on earth has happened many times over. Scientists have documented at least 5 mass extinctions. "

The 'hand of God' nebula - A small, dense object only twelve miles in diameter is responsible for this beautiful X-ray nebula that spans 150 light years. At the center of this image made by NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory is a very young and powerful pulsar, known as PSR B1509-58, or B1509 for short. The pulsar is a rapidly spinning neutron star which is spewing energy out into the space around it to create complex and intriguing structures, including one that resembles a large cosmic hand.

The Amazing 'Hand of GOD' Nebula. GOD'S Hands created the Universe.
The Hand of God love it! smile
This object looks like an X-ray from the doctor's office, but is actually a cloud of material ejected from a star that exploded. NASA's Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array has imaged the structure in high-energy X-rays for the first time, shown in blue. Lower-energy X-ray light previously detected by NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory is shown in green and red. The HAND OF GOD is a pulsar wind nebula, powered by the leftover dense core of a star that blew up in a supernova explosion.

Hoag's Object is a mysterious ring galaxy 600 million light years away in the constellation Serpens. The outer ring is composed largely of hot blue stars, while the core is older red and yellow stars. The space in between is almost completely dark. It is thought that this galaxy formed from the collision of two galaxies billions of years ago. Visible near the top of the gap is another ring galaxy, likely much further away.

A nearly perfect ring of hot, blue stars pinwheels about the yellow nucleus of an unusual galaxy known as Hoag's Object. The "gap" separating the hot blue stars from the yellow older stars may actually contain some star clusters that are too faint to see. Curiously, an object resembling Hoag's Object can be seen in the gap at the one o'clock position. The object is probably a background ring galaxy.
Hoag's Object by NASA: This non-typical galaxy is known as a ring galaxy, and was discovered in 1950 by astronomer Art Hoag, who initially thought it to be a planetary nebula. Serendipitously, from the perspective of our solar system what appears to be an even more distant ring galaxy is plainly visible within the gap between this galaxy's central body of mostly yellow stars and the outer ring of blue stars. via wikipedia. #Ring_Galaxy #Hogs_Object #Astronomy
Hoag's Object: A Strange Ring Galaxy. Explanation: Is this one galaxy or two? This question came to light in 1950 when astronomer Art Hoag chanced upon this unusual extragalactic object. On the outside is a ring dominated by bright blue stars, while near the center lies a ball of much redder stars that are likely much older. Between the two is a gap that appears almost completely dark. How Hoag's Object formed remains unknown, although similar objects have now been identified and collectively labeled as a form of ring galaxy. Genesis hypotheses include a galaxy collision billions of years ago and the gravitational effect of a central bar that has since vanished. The above photo taken by the Hubble Space Telescope in July 2001 reveals unprecedented details of Hoag's Object and may yield a better understanding. Hoag's Object spans about 100,000 light years and lies about 600 million light years away toward the constellation of the Snake (Serpens). Coincidentally, visible in the gap (at about one o'clock) is yet another ring galaxy that likely lies far in the distance. Credit: R. Lucas (STScI/AURA), Hubble Heritage Team, NASA
Hoag's Object, a galaxy made up of a nearly perfect ring of hot, blue stars rotating around a yellow nucleus. The entire galaxy is about 120,000 light-years wide, which is slightly larger than our Milky Way Galaxy. What appears to be a gap separating the two stellar populations may actually contain some star clusters that are almost too faint to see. Curiously, an object that bears an uncanny resemblance to Hoag's Object can be seen in the gap at the one o'clock position. The object is probably a distant ring galaxy. The blue ring of stars may be the shredded remains of a galaxy that passed nearby about 2 to 3 billion years ago. Hoag's Object is 600 million light-years away in the constellation Serpens.
NGC 6357: Cathedral to Massive Stars Image Credit: NASA, ESA and Jesús Maíz Apellániz (IAA, Spain) Explanation: How massive can a normal star be? Estimates made from distance, brightness and standard solar models had given one star in the open cluster Pismis 24 over 200 times the mass of our Sun, nearly making it the record holder.

#Astronomy: Star on a #Hubble diet. The star cluster #Pismis 24 lies in the core of the large emission nebula #NGC6357 that extends one degree on the sky in the direction of the Scorpius constellation. Part of the nebula is ionised by the youngest (bluest) heavy stars in Pismis 24. The intense ultraviolet radiation from the blazing stars heats the gas surrounding the cluster and creates a bubble in NGC 6357. The presence of these surrounding gas clouds makes probing into the region even harder
<strong>Pismis 24</strong>: The small open star cluster Pismis 24 lies in the core of the large emission nebula NGC 6357 in Scorpius, about 8,000 light-years away from Earth. The brightest object in the picture is designated Pismis 24-1. It was once thought to weigh as much as 200 to 300 solar masses. This would not only have made it by far the most massive known star in the galaxy, but would have put it considerably above the currently believed upper mass limit of about 150 solar masses for individual stars. <br> However, Hubble Space Telescope high-resolution images of the star show that it is really two stars orbiting one another. They are estimated to each be 100 solar masses. <i>Image released on Dec. 11, 2006</i>
Zeta Ophiuchus, a massive star plowing through the gas and dust floating in space. Zeta Oph is a bruiser, with 20 times the Sun’s mass. It’s an incredibly luminous star, blasting out light at a rate 80,000 times higher than the Sun! Even at its distance of 400 light years or so, it should be one of the brightest stars in the sky … yet it actually appears relatively dim to the eye.

In May 1949, LIFE Magazine published a stunning series of images to accompany an issue dedicated largely to The Atom. You can check out the feature in its entirety here, but the reimagination of the periodic table of elements as a colorful spiral is easily one of the most striking graphics of the lot.

The Soap bubble nebula, or PN G75.5+1.7, is a planetary nebula in the constellation Cygnus. Most planetary nebulae are elliptical or cigar-shaped, but in this case, its unusual shape was caused after a vast spherical cloud of gas was ejected from each pole of an ageing star.
An extensive coronal hole rotated towards Earth over several days this week (May 28-31, 2013). The massive coronal area is one of the largest we have seen in a year or more. Coronal holes are the source of strong solar wind gusts that carry solar particles out to our magnetosphere and beyond.

This exceptional image of the Horsehead nebula was taken at the National Science Foundations 0.9-meter telescope on Kitt Peak with the NOAO Mosaic CCD camera. Located in the constellation of Orion, the Hunter, the Horsehead is part of a dense cloud of gas in front of an active star-forming nebula known as IC434. The nebulosity of the Horsehead is believed to be excited by the bright star Sigma Orionis, which is located above the top of the image.

Pleiades M45 Cluster. ... The Seven Sisters.
The Pleiades, or Seven Sisters, is an open star cluster containing middle-aged hot B-type stars located in the constellation of Taurus. Only 424 light years away. An open cluster is a group of up to a few thousand stars that were formed from the same giant molecular cloud and have roughly the same age. Open clusters generally survive for a few hundred million years, as opposed to globular clusters which can survive many billions of years.
