Tarantula

BIGGEST NEBULA

The largest known nebula in the universe is many times larger than the Oort cloud and far more massive, with a star cluster at its core which is 450,000 solar masses alone. The Tarantula Nebula is right on our cosmic doorstep in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), which is one of several satellite galaxies orbiting around the Milky Way itself. With a diameter of roughly 800 light years, the Tarantula Nebula (which also goes by the names 30 Doradus and NGC 2070) is a seething cauldron of starbirth containing millions of Suns’ worth of star-forming material, approximately 160,000

Scientists working with data from the Atacama Large Millimeter/ submillimeter Array (ALMA) have come across the most massive stellar embryo ever discovered in the Milky

Way. It’s a real monster of a baby star, growing in a cosmic womb 500 times the mass of our own Sun.

The unbelievable part is that it’s still growing, sucking up material in its environment with its powerful gravity and adding to a blooming protostellar core that may eventually form several newborn stars.

This core is found 11,000 light years away in a region of space known as the Spitzer Dark Cloud or SDC. It’s shrouded by dense dust and gas, so has been difficult to observe with much accuracy until a Cardiff-based team led by French scientist Nicolas

Searching for monster stars

In 2010, Professor Paul Crowther and his team discovered the most massive known single star, R136a1.

Can we start by asking what first drew your attention to the R136 star cluster?

Well, it’s probably the prime target for anyone looking for the most massive stars – it’s the most obvious place to look really because it’s the most massive young star cluster in our part of the universe. It’s about the same size as the famous Orion Nebula, but while that’s got a couple of thousand stars, R136 probably contains 100,000 stars or more, if you could see them all.

NML Cygni

BIGGEST STAR

We’re moving into the realms of the true giants when we start to look at the biggest stars in the universe. Unlike planets, asteroids and other celestial objects that are too dark and too small to give away obvious clues to their presence from afar, these colossal balls of fusing hydrogen can bloom up to spheres so big that they’re difficult to comprehend, blazing multi-spectra radiation across interstellar space and making their exact location known by the massive gravitational influence they have over their local environment.

There are an estimated 100 to 400 billion stars in the Milky

Massive Cost Cutting To Hit UK Helicopter Force

AS A result of the massive overspend on the Astute submarine and Nimrod MRA.4 programmes, and with the costs of the war in Iraq, the Treasury has reportedly demanded major savings in the Defence Budget. This is placing the Ministry of Defence’s Equipment Plan (EP) in serious difficulties. In response, MoD teams, colloquially known as ‘work strands’, put forward a series of cost-cutting measures, which were intended to reduce the deficit.

AFM understands that work strand 13, led by Air Commodore Kevin Leeson, was tasked with reducing helicopter support costs and with taking CI billion out of the future rotorcraft

Young served in the front on the Department of Justice Tribunal

Meanwhile the Young remain at the stage of registration and may be on legitimate grounds to speak on behalf of the movement. The press release also said: "It is expected that the hearing at which the bureaucrats have to explain to the court why mass actions in accordance with the law on mass events, in their eyes, is a violation of the statute, will be held in September." • The authorities refused to register "Young Front"10.07.2007

TMK shipped a batch of line pipe superior strength group in Papua New Guinea

Pipe Metallurgical Company (TMK), one of the world's largest manufacturers of tubular products for the oil and gas industry, has shipped batch of seamless line pipes for the offshore project of NautilusMinerals. TMK products will be used in the project to develop the massive sulphide deposits in the bottom sediments of the Bismarck Sea (Papua New Guinea).

The pipes were manufactured at the Volga Pipe Plant (VPP), a part of TMK. VPP — Russia's first certified manufacturer of seamless line pipe of high strength X80QO standard APISpec. 5L/ISO 3183, intended for the construction of subsea pipelines. TMK products delivered

The capital city of New Zealand threatens massive tsunami

September 28, 2013. Scientists from the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research of New Zealand warned that the nation's capital, the city of Wellington, in the event of an earthquake with magnitude of at least 7 threatens massive tsunami.

Tremors of such force to cause a massive landslide in the canyon, which is located at the bottom of the Cook Strait, 10 km from the coastal areas of the city. Derailment of land just can cause a wave that hit the capital in 12 minutes after the earthquake.

Geologist Joshu Mountjoy indicates that about one in every 100

The massive eruption of Shiveluch

The massive eruption of Shiveluch Natural Disasters

The massive eruption was on the Kamchatka Peninsula. Diameter crater of Shiveluch is 1.5 kilometers. Ash emissions reached an altitude of 10 kilometers above sea level. The snow melts in the crater at an incredible speed, causing landslides. Volcano eruption continues, increasing the danger of air travel.
