    from SpaceSciNewsroom Added 40 0 0

    Scientists from the Space Sciences Department at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science take you "behind the stories" using the best images and animation available to help understand the latest developments. January 2014 – In early January, Dr. Dimitri Klebe, attended the 223rd Meeting of the American Astronomical Society. In this month’s 60 Minutes in Space, he reports on one of his favorite talks from the meeting titled “Exploring the Stellar Graveyard of the Milky Way. Dr. KaChun Yu’s first story covers the Frontier Fields program “Exploring the Depths of the Universe”. In his second story, he talks about the latest Kepler mission team results. Dr. Steve Lee brings us all the latest mission news including updates on both Mars rovers – Opportunity and Curiosity, China’s lunar landing mission Chang’e 3, and the next steps for the ISS Robonaut.

        • Zooming and panning on barred spiral galaxy Messier 83


          from HubbleESA Added 46 3 0

          Beginning with a wide view, this video zooms in through ground-based imagery to the Hubble and Magellan composite image of Messier 83, ending on Hubble's view. Messier 83 is a barred spiral galaxy that has hosted a remarkable number of supernova explosions, and appears to have a double nucleus at its core.

              This artist's illustration shows a star turning into a variable star, expanding and shrinking — growing brighter and dimmer as it does so. More information and download options: http://www.spacetelescope.org/videos/heic1323j/ Credit: NASA, ESA, M. Kornmesser

                  from HubbleESA Added 31 1 0

                  This brief animation shows the mechanism behind a light echo. A variable star known as RS Puppis is shown to the top right corner of the video, surrounded by clouds of gas and dust. As the star expands and brightens, we see some of the light after it is reflected from progressively more distant shells of dust and gas surrounding the star — creating the illusion of gas moving outwards. This reflected light has further to travel, and so arrives at the Earth after light that travels straight from star to telescope. This is analogous to sound bouncing off surrounding objects, causing the listener to hear an audible echo.

                    This video pans across Hubble observations of variable star RS Puppis. These observations show the ethereal object embedded in its dusty environment, set against a dark sky filled with background galaxies.

                      This video zooms in on the variable star RS Puppis. The sequence begins with a view of the night sky near the southern constellation of Puppis. It then zooms through observations from the Digitized Sky Survey 2, and ends with a view of the star as obtained by Hubble.
