Astronomers simulate the Cat’s Eye Nebula in 3D

In a recent study published in Royal Astronomical Society Monthly Notices, an international team of researchers led by Stanford University produced the first computer-generated 3D model of the Cat’s Eye Nebula, which unveiled a symmetrical pair of rings that surround the nebula’s outer shell. This study has the potential to help us better understand the …

A planet-sized heat wave has been discovered in Jupiter’s atmosphere

A heat wave the size of 10 Earths has been discovered in Jupiter’s atmosphere. It was 130,000 kilometers (about 81,000 miles) in diameter and a scorching 700 degrees Celsius (1,292 degrees Fahrenheit), moving at speeds of up to 2,400 meters per second from the Jovian north pole. And that, scientists say, could solve one of …

First potential traces of the first stars in the universe

Astronomers may have discovered the ancient chemical remnants of the first stars to light up the Universe. Using innovative analysis of a distant quasar observed by the 8.1-meter Gemini North Telescope in Hawai’i, operated by NSF’s NOIRLab, scientists have found an unusual ratio of elements that, according to them, could only have come from the …
