Star-shaped Explosion Pearl necklace

Cameras Hubble space telescope record a Supernova explosion or a series of stars, surrounded by a sphere of white pearl necklace as a sparkler. more beautiful because of the more left-right between two bright stars that shine like jewel.

Supernova 1987A is the name given is already known since two decades ago. However, the unique shapes that are revealed after the photogenic new Hubble in December 2006.

At the circle in the pink material that may be left behind when the terrible explosion occurred. While the bright lights around the outermost layer of the material that emanated stars entering times dying.

When stars run out of energy, there was a giant explosion and shock waves that heat the terluar materials. This is making the circle on the outside light. Uniquely, the outermost sphere formed around the sphere-pearl.

This is the Oldest Object in the Nature of Current

Satellite Swift Aviation Agency and the property to the U.S. (NASA) and the oldest record farthest object that was successfully recorded so far. Object is the form of a explosion of energy from stars that died.

The existence of an object is detected the first time on 23 April. Swift gamma-ray emission record which is estimated from the explosion that resulted in a high radiation.

Earth station and then directed to the phosphorescent light on the surrounding that as a result of radiation. Explosion only lasts about 10 seconds and occurred in 630 million years since the universe is created.

Calculation results show that phosphorescence light was recorded to explore outer space for 13.1 billion years to light recorded at this time. Age of the object is older than the oldest previous record object, 100-200 hundred million years.

NASA experts, astro physics, Neil Gehrels, states, death star explosion will produce a black hole. Age alone is estimated that stars of a million years and 30 times its size when the sun explode.

Sky Bubbles Mysterious Age 12.9 Billion Years

A mysterious object recorded most remote in space. The call astronomy as primordial bubbles that are named Himiko, a name taken from the Kingdom of Japan's ancient queen who was also the same mysterious.

So called because the object is a giant form not long after the universe form the beginning of the explosion (Big Bang). Size is very large, in the form of the mass of gas 40 billion times the mass and the sun and a half times the diameter galaxy Bima Sakti.

Very old age is about 12.9 billion light years (light year is equivalent to 9.5 trillion kilometers). Himiko structure that was not able to give descriptions of early galaxy formation when the universe is still very young and the new age of around 800 million years.

"I had never heard the other kind of object that this far in the distance," said Masami Ouchi, researchers from the Carnegie Institution, California, USA. Objects may be similar bubble Lyman-Alpha that between 2-3 billion years.

Himiko form at the end of the epic that ionization takes place between 200 million and one billion years since the Big Bang. At that time, the universe just a new form of birth and the stars and the galaxy.

Shaped like a gas bubble may form terionisasi that beset supermasif giant black hole or a collection of cold gas. However, it can be Himiko is the result of the collision of two galaxy ignites young, single giant galaxy, or the location of the formation of stars that are very active.

Himiko was first recorded using the Subaru telescope in Hawaii in 2007. Ouchi and his team then conducted more carefully using the instrument spektrografi Keck / DEIMOS and Magellan / IMACS. From observation, the uterus was detected hydrogen ionization, the distance, and age of an object is mysterious.

"We plan to make infrared observations with Hubble space telescope to make sure, if there are characteristics merging objects or not," says Ouchi. However, it can be repaired Hubble after the flight mission in NASA aircraft that Atlantis is scheduled next month.
