'Star on a Hubble Diet': The star cluster Pismis 24 lies in the core of the large emission nebula NGC 6357 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>

Apollo 11 Mission...Astronaut Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin is seen walking on the surface of the moon in this photo from the July 21, 1969, moon landing. Aldrin and fellow astronauts Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and John Glenn will receive the Congressional Medal of Honour.

LaPeire: #Apollo11 #NASA #BuzzLightyear Today marks 46 years after NASA officially unveiled the spacecraft which would to send Neil Armstrong (not the blood doper) and Buzz Aldrin to the moon. I think scientific progression is a huge part of American history and it can be equally beautiful (Moon landing, Internet) as it can be ugly (MKULTRA, Manhattan Project). I think that it's important that we keep investing in our scientific endeavors and progress as an intelligent and resourceful society.
July 20, 1969: First Man Walks on the Moon On this day in 1969, the spaceflight Apollo 11 landed the first humans, Americans Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, on the moon. People watched worldwide as Armstrong took that momentous first step onto the moon, declaring, “This is one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.” One does not simply land on the moon wearing a t-shirt and jeans. See how these Historic Space Suits evolved to allow a successful landing on the moon! Photo: NASA

Astronomy Picture of the Day: 8/19/12 - Eagle Nebula in False Color This close up, false-color image of the Eagle nebula captures one of its stellar nurseries. The Eagle nebula is about 6,500 light-years from Earth, making it one of our closest stellar nurseries. The XMM-Newton, imaging X-rays, worked in conjunction with Herschel’s far infrared seeing capabilities to capture this stunning image. Unfortunately, astronomers have found the remnants of a supernova inside
A new look at the Pillars This picture of the Eagle Nebula, released Jan. 17, combines a far-infrared view from the Herschel Space Observatory with an X-ray view from XMM-Newton to show how the hot young stars detected by the X-ray observations are sculpting and interacting with the surrounding ultra-cool gas and dust, which provide the critical material for star formation. — TODAY.com
The Eagle Nebula. Combining almost opposite ends of the electromagnetic spectrum, this composite of the Herschel in far-infrared and XMM-Newton’s X-ray images shows how the hot young stars detected by the X-ray observations are sculpting and interacting with the surrounding ultra-cool gas and dust, which, at only a few degrees above absolute zero, is the critical material for star formation itself. Both wavelengths would be blocked by Earth’s atmosphere, so are critical to our understanding of the lifecycle of stars.

A star forming region in the plane of our galaxy, the Trifid illustrates three different types of astronomical nebulae; red emission nebulae dominated by light emitted by hydrogen atoms, blue reflection nebulae produced by dust reflecting starlight, and dark nebulae where dense dust clouds appear in silhouette. The bright red emission region, roughly separated into three parts by obscuring, dark dust lanes, lends the Trifid its popular name. In this well met scene, the red emission is also juxtaposed with the telltale blue haze of reflection nebulae. Pillars and jets sculpted by newborn stars, below and left of the emission nebula's center, appear in Hubble Space Telescope close-up images of the region. The Trifid Nebula is about 40 light-years across.

Known as NGC6514 or M20, based on Charles Messier's catalog of glowing night sky objects, the Trifid Nebula is a relatively new star nursery- astronomers estimate that it is only 300,000 years old. To gain a better perception of scale, consider that it takes light about 50 years, traveling at 186,000 miles a second, to travel from one side of the Trifid Nebula to the other.
WORLD WONDERS ☪ :: A Beautiful Trifid
The beautiful Trifid Nebula is a cosmic study in colorful contrasts. Also known as M20, it lies about 5,000 light-years away toward the nebula rich constellation Sagittarius. A star forming region in the plane of our galaxy, the Trifid illustrates three different types of astronomical nebulae; red emission nebulae dominated by light emitted by hydrogen atoms, blue reflection nebulae produced by dust reflecting starlight, and dark nebulae where dense dust clouds appear in silhouette. The bright red emission region, roughly separated into three parts by obscuring, dark dust lanes, lends the Trifid its popular name.
