NASA Image Of a Supernova Remnant Named Tycho

"Tycho" Supernova Remnant From a White Dwarf

NASA recently released  this beautiful image from the Chandra x-ray observatory of this very deep observation in our own Milky Way galaxy. This Supernova remnant named Tycho is from the explosion of a white dwarf star which displays an energy range from red which is  low energy to blue which represents high energy x-ray emission revealing stripes which had never been seen before! It is possible receive these images directly from the NASA/Chandra website.

Giant Ring Of Black Holes

NASA Today released this composite image by the Hubble Space Telescope and The Chandra Infrared Observatory that shows tho interacting galaxies. According to NASA, the remnant of a spiral galaxy on the right collided with the elliptical galaxy on the left leaving an expanding wave of  star formation on the right, producing large young stars that live a relatively short life before exploding into supernovas and leaving behind neutron stars and black holes. This is about 430 million light years from Earth. The red, green and blue is optical data from the Hubble telescope and the pink is from the Chandra x-ray observatory. Additional data can be found at the Chandra site on the NASA web site with much more amazing information about this fabulous act of creation in God’s universe.

NASA - Jellyfish Nebula

This NASA Image reflects the remnants of a Supernova seen in various infrared wavelengths which are represented by the various  array of colors seen in this beautiful image of just one relatively small area of our universe. This “Jellyfish Nebula” is officially called IC 443. I never cease to be amazed by the images that our taxpayer dollars regularly produce through all of the modern-day technology.

Along with the Hubble telescope, there are numerous other telescopes that are able to see in normal light as well as all of the other spectrum of light including ultra violet and infrared and then are released to the public when possible. This image is from the “WISE” observatory which searches in the infrared range of light. We need not forget the radio telescopes that search the heavens for other types of information as well. Between the galaxies, nebulae, supernovae, black holes and things that are yet to be understood like dark matter keep our, as well as other star-gazers busy around the clock and around the world.

NASA Hubble Telescope Image of the M84 Galaxy, Massive Black Hole

NASA Released  this single image of a super-massive black hole taken by the imaging spectrograph aboard the Hubble Space Telescope. The super-massive black hole is large enough for 300 million of our suns, which is called 300 million solar masses, to fit within the black hole and is in the galaxy called M84 which is part of the Virgo cluster of galaxies. M84 black hole is about 26 light years from the center of its galaxy and about 50 million light years from Earth. This same super-massive black hole is moving at 880,000 miles per hour. The relatively close by galaxy called M87 also has a super-massive black hole relatively near its galaxy’s center.

The heavens truly declare the Glory of GOD and this is regularly confirmed by the Hubble telescope as well as others both in orbit and on the ground. The Bible has been confirmed by scientific data such as this.  More and more scientists are at least secretly acknowledging  the fact that creation is the only possible conclusion available but might lose their tenure or their job altogether, if they speak their minds. May GOD be glorified through His wonderful creation day by day even in this secular society. May the LORD be glorified.

Amen
