Найдивовижніші фото з космосу від NASA за осінь 2016

Кожного дня у космосі відбуваються справжні дива. Добре, що спеціалісти NASA подбали про те, аби ми, земляни змогли побачити хоча б деякі з них!

Всі зображення клікабельні. Натиснувши на фото, ви перейдете на один з Flickr та Instagram акаунтів NASA та зможете дізнатися більше про об’єкт, який вас зацікавив.

It's #BlackHoleFriday! Black holes aren't empty holes at all! They're a massive amount of matter packed in a tiny area…like #BlackFriday shopping! This artist's conception illustrates one of the most primitive supermassive black holes known (central black dot) at the core of a young, star-rich galaxy. Astronomers using our Spitzer Space Telescope have uncovered two of these early objects, dating back to about 13 billion years ago. The monstrous black holes are among the most distant known, and appear to be in the very earliest stages of formation, earlier than any observed so far. Unlike all other supermassive black holes probed to date, this primitive duo, called J0005-0006 and J0303-0019, lacks dust. As the drawing shows, gas swirls around a black hole in what is called an accretion disk. Usually, the accretion disk is surrounded by a dark doughnut-like dusty structure called a dust torus. But for the primitive black holes, the dust tori are missing and only gas disks are observed. This is because the early universe was clean as a whistle. Enough time had not passed for molecules to clump together into dust particles. Some black holes forming in this era thus started out lacking dust. As they grew, gobbling up more and more mass, they are thought to have accumulated dusty rings. This illustration also shows how supermassive black holes can distort space and light around them (see warped stars behind black hole). Stars from the galaxy can be seen sprinkled throughout, and distant mergers between other galaxies are illustrated in the background.

Спіральна галактика.

This Hubble Space Telescope image shows a spiral galaxy. This cosmic beauty lies some 38 million light-years away and while it may look serene, it is anything but. The galaxy is currently undergoing an immense burst of star formation. This flurry of activity is shown by the unmistakable blue-hued knots speckling the galaxy's spiral arms, each of which marks a clump of hot newborn stars. However, its star formation is somewhat unusual; it does not extend to the galaxy's outer edges, but is only taking place within an inner ring some 6500 light-years across. This two-tiered structure is visible in this image – while the galaxy's center is bright, its extremities are much darker. This odd configuration is thought to have been caused by a merger with a smaller, gas-rich galaxy – while the turbulent event ignited the center of the galaxy, the dusty remains of the small snack then dispersed into the galaxy's outer regions.
