Types of giant stars

Red supergiant

The biggest red giants are the largest stars in the universe, swollen to diameters of a billion kilometres or more by changes in their cores as they near the end of their lives. As they swell in size and brighten to hundreds of thousands of times solar luminosity, their surfaces cool to a distinctive red colour. But many scientists say these stars are supergiants rather than true hypergiants.

Yellow supergiant

Yellow supergiants seem to be a rare intermediate stage, though again they get their name from their size and brightness rather than their mass. They seem to be

Leonardo had plenty of plans — volumes full of them, plans stuffed in the margins of his plans. But Leonardo never shipped the products. He never



The largest galaxies in the universe are giant ellipticals – huge clouds containing trillions of stars whose overlapping individual orbits create an enormous, fuzzy-edged ball. These monsters can grow to be ten times the size of the Milky Way, but even by these standards, IC 1101 stands out: it has a diameter more than 50 times that of the Milky Way, and is roughly 2,000 times heavier.

IC 1101 lies at the heart of a galaxy cluster called Abell 2029, over a billion light years from Earth. The cluster has an overall mass of around 100 trillion Suns, though most

Gamma-ray telescope reveals new secrets of the universe

Gamma-ray telescope reveals new secrets of the Universe Facts

Each type of radiation from radio waves to gamma rays is helping scientists discover new facts about the universe and its electromagnetic spectrum. Some wavelengths are best suited for the study of black holes, the other for new stars and planets, and some of the early stories reveal the mystery of the cosmos. For us, the most powerful type of radiation are studied gamma rays.

With the space telescope Fermi, studying gamma spectrum, NASA scientists were able to get the first full sky map of high-galaxies at the edge of the

On America could collapse a giant tsunami

May 17. California and Hawaii threatened by giant waves, such as those that hit Japan last spring.

A study conducted recently in New Mexico, at the Institute of Mining, showed that the fault crust on the seabed in the south of the Aleutian Islands can generate an earthquake of 9 points.

Earthquake-prone zone — Aleutian subduction zone is in a place where the edge of the Pacific plate goes under the North American plate. In March 1964, the collision of these two plates has caused the most powerful earthquake measuring 9.2 points. Then the victims of disaster are 145 people.
