Black Hole at the Centre of our Galaxy

Image credit: Chandra
Using the Chandra X-Ray Observatory, Astronomers have created one of the most vivid images of Sagittarius A, an area at the centre of our Milky Way Galaxy thought to contain a supermassive black hole. The exposure was made over a period of two weeks, and during that time, the region flared up several times; presumably when additional material reached the black hole's event horizon.

Distant and Fast Moving Object Discovered

Image credit: NASA
A team of Astronomers from the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena presented images today of a rare Hyper Extremely Red Object (Hero). This dim object, located near a Galaxy 10 billion light years away is travelling away from us at almost the speed of light. In fact, it's so far, and moving so fast, it has gone way past being red-shifted - it's only visible in Infrared light.

Astronomers announced today that they have discovered a giant ring of stars circling the Milky Way. They believe this ring could contain as many as 500 million stars, and was formed when our Galaxy collided with a smaller, dwarf Galaxy several billion years ago. Other Galaxies have been seen with a Halo of stars, including Andromeda.

After five scrubbed launch attempts, a Titan II rocket finally roared up from Vandenberg Air Force Base on Monday, lifting a Corolis spacecraft into orbit. The $224 million satellite was funded by the US Air Force and Navy to study wind patterns in the Earth's oceans. The Titan II rocket that launched the satellite used to be tipped with a nuclear warhead, but it was repurposed as part of the strategic arms reductions.
