The James Webb Space Telescope is one of the biggest projects in NASA history. The project costs about $10 billion and has been in development for nearly more than two decades. Once launched, the telescope will study black holes, and scan the space for possible life-hosting planets.
A huge endeavor
Initial development of the space telescope started as early as 1996. The project was originally scheduled for a 2007 launch, but development issues pushed the launch further than originally anticipa…
Arctic sea ice is being increasingly melted from below by warming Atlantic water – The Conversation UK
Scientists find oceanic heat has overtaken atmospheric heat as the main cause of melting.
Each September, scientists like me look out for the point when the Arctics meagre summer fizzles out and sea ice begins to grow once more. This point is known as the annual sea ice minimum extent. It has declined consistently over the past 15 years, and 2019 was the second lowest after 2012 in 42 years of continuous satellite records. This years minimum is imminent, and there is already even less ice coverage than last year.
Whats causing this decline in minimum sea ice extent? The short answer…
We now know how dying stars form the enchanting zones of Stardust – The Press Stories
The last gases of dying stars are the most beautiful objects in the galaxy.They are called planetary nebulae, clouds of stellar objects that are emitted
The last gases of dying stars are the most beautiful objects in the galaxy.
They are called planetary nebulae, clouds of stellar objects that are emitted into space when a red giant star enters the last phase of its life. The dying star shakes its outer layers, which glow from the inside with a hot, exposed center.
These clouds are complex, beautiful, like mandala-like waves, strange disks, wing-like pilot jets. The stunning complexity of these shapes and the variety contrast with the uniform …

The last gasps of dying stars are some of the most beautiful objects in the galaxy.
Theyre called planetary nebulae, clouds of stellar material ejected out into space as a red giant star enters the last stage of its life. The dying star shucks off its outer layers, which are illuminated from within by the hot, exposed core.
These clouds are complex, and gorgeous, with mandala-like waves, strange discs, even bilobed jets akin to wings. The stunning complexity and variety of these shapes seems a…
