Telescopes can see Shadows of Wormholes

Telescopes can see Shadows of Wormholes

According to a scientist, the cosmic shortcuts proposed by Albert Einstein, more than a 100 years ago, might be real. A wormhole can provide shortcuts for the long journey across the universe. This is a passage through space-time which is associated with fiction and science theory at least for now. The theory of general relativity…

Vast Stellar Nursery of Lagoon Nebula

Vast Stellar Nursery of Lagoon Nebula

Hubble Space Telescope celebrated its 28th anniversary in space by comparing Lagoon Nebula in the visible and infrared light. The Lagoon Nebula, also known as M8 or RCW146, is a colossal interstellar cloud in the constellation Sagittarius. This emission nebula was discovered before 1654 by an Italian astronomer, Giovanni Hodiema. There are only two nebulae…

Colliding Stars will light up the sky in 2022 and we will see it forever

Colliding Stars will light up the sky in 2022 and we will see it forever

“It’s a one-in-a-million chance when you can predict an explosion. It’s never been done before.” Molnar said. Astronomy has shown us tremendous wonders of nature and latest prediction of scientists suggest that it is ready to show us the first of its kind. A binary star system was under observation for years and researchers claim…

Scientists Spot the Shadow of a Strange Wind blowing past a Black Hole

Scientists Spot the Shadow of a Strange Wind blowing past a Black Hole

Scientists claim that a strange wind blew past a Black Hole. Black holes are those places in space where the gravitational pull is so strong that even light cannot get through it. The presence of too much mass in small space is the reason why the gravitational strength is so strong there. As light cannot…

The Most Important Astronomical Events until 2020

The Most Important Astronomical Events until 2020

Celestial events regarding interplanetary system occur either sporadically or infrequently. These events may include lunar and solar eclipse, meteor shower, cyclical phases of the moon, occultation, comet flybys, and transits. The reason behind this irregularity which leads to these proceedings are the variable movements that happen in the immense cosmos. There are many such incidents…

Closest Galaxies in our Universe

Closest Galaxies in our Universe

Andromeda is NOT the Closest Galaxy in our Universe. It is a long known fact that the Milky Way (our galaxy) is surrounded by millions or even billions of other galaxies. A common perception is that our closest galactic neighbor is Andromeda Galaxy. That’s not true as it is the closest Spiral galaxy but there…

Total Solar Eclipse across Peru and Chile in 2019

We are able to watch Total Solar Eclipse again in 2019 One of the mysteries that was solved through astronomy was the logical explanation of eclipses. People on Earth can experience Lunar and Solar Eclipses where heavenly bodies are aligned to bring some extraordinary changes in the appearance of their surface. Lunar eclipses are much…

Milky Way and Andromeda will collide in the Future. How long will it take?

Astronomers predict Titanic Collision between Milky Way and Andromeda. In about 4 billion years, two galaxies in the Local Group can produce a ‘galactic collision’. The Milky Way and Andromeda Galaxy are the most likely contenders in this regard. It’s a huge cosmic event as the entire solar system including the Sun and the Earth…

We are about to see a Black Hole for the First Time in History

The highest resolution instrument in the history of astronomy is about to prove if black holes are real or not. Even though Albert Einstein’s theories showed potential black holes, neither the physician himself was sure of them. Until now, no one had a concrete proof that the theory of general relativity is real, but this…
