Galaxy classification

Edwin Hubble’s monumental discoveries revealed that the universe consists of a variety of vast galaxies that exist far beyond our Milky Way galaxy.

Edwin Hubble can be ranked as one of the great astronomers, whose discoveries are as important as those of Nicolaus Copernicus and Galileo Galilei.

In 1919, he began working at the Mount Wilson Observatory in California. A few years later, he used the newly built 2.5-metre (100-inch) Hooker Telescope to study Cepheid variable stars located in spiral nebulas. From these observations, he found that they must exist far beyond the Milky Way. In 1925, he presented his

An international team of astronomers has set a new record in the detection of the most distant from us (and, hence, the earliest) of space objects: scientists have discovered a "primeval" galaxy located about 13 billion light-years from Earth.

This means that she was born after

Hubble found the absolute double of our galaxy

Supernatural counterpart to our own Milky Way galaxy has a central place in the new space portrait, which is presented today (February 3), the Hubble Space Telescope.On an amazing photograph captures the galaxy NGC 1073, a spiral, like our own Milky Way. It is located 55 million light-years away in the constellation Cetus.

Looking at the space miracle, like our galactic home, astronomers hope to learn more about the Milky Way, we can only see from the inside.

Bridge, consisting of dense lines of stars in the centers of galaxies are believed formed under the influence of gravitational waves,

Scientists have made a portrait of the telescope images of the universe

NASA scientists were pictures of the telescope Hubble «portrait of the universe," and the student-astronomer — a picture of Van Gogh

Astronomers and the Hubble Telescope continue to astound the imagination of Earthlings: NASA scientists have shown a close-up objects that the photographs are usually no more poppy-seed. While professional astronomers used the Hubble images for research purposes, a student from Cambridge made of these photographs art object by copying a picture of Vincent Van Gogh's "Starry Night."

His achievement astronomers call without false modesty "improved picture" of the universe, and "the most in-depth look into space," noted

Greetings from the Hubble: Treasures Large Magellanic Cloud

January 24, 2013 22:34

To the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), a satellite Milky Way, about 200 thousand light years. In a slow, long dance around our galaxy huge cloud of gas is compressed to form new stars, which, in turn, illuminated gas clouds, giving a riot of color to the eye (with the help of the space telescope "Hubble", of course).

LMC packed active regions of star formation. Of the Tarantula Nebula (brightest stellar nursery in our cosmic neighborhood) to the subject LHA 120-N 11 (part of which fit in this picture) — for this small irregular galaxy and

Huge white city floating in space

December 16, 2011 14:17

Astronomers have long stepped away in their studies near and distant stars and galaxies. Hundreds of professionals and millions of fans every night sent to the starry sky their various telescopes. The main telescope is a planet — orbital space agency NASA telescope "Hubble" opens for astronomers unprecedented horizons far space. But, with the great discoveries, "Hubble" and at least presents the greatest mysteries.

In early 1995, a German astronomy magazine published a short message that immediately responded to a number of scientific, religious and popular publications of the planet. Each of

Dark matter in the center of galaxies "packaged" more tightly than predicted many of the existing theories. This conclusion was made by astronomers studying distant galaxy clusters images, obtained in the framework of CLASH (Cluster Lensing And Supernova survey with Hubble — an overview of supernovae and study of the phenomenon of gravitational lensing with the telescope "Hubble"). Briefly research results are presented in the press release NASA. Dark matter — it is not detected experimentally substance, which is
