Find out astrophysicsman's Instagram The Hubble sequence is a classification for galaxies that Edwin Hubble invented in 1926. The sequence divides regular galaxies into three different types, elliptical, spiral, and lenticular galaxies. Today, the Hubble sequence is widely used by both professional and amateur astronomers to classify galaxies. 
To the left side of the diagram lie the elliptical galaxies. These galaxies are pretty much featureless. In fact, it's been said that if you've seen one elliptical galaxy then you've seen them all. This is because nearly every elliptical galaxy is very similar in structure and appearance. The largest galaxies in the universe, however, are elliptical galaxies and can contain more than 1 trillion stars. 
Moving to the right of the diagram, we see two parallel branches, both containing spiral galaxies. Unlike elliptical galaxies, spirals have amazing, stunning features. Spiral galaxies are basically flattened disks with huge spiral arms composed of stars, gas and dust. Spiral galaxies have a central region known as the bulge. For most spiral galaxies, a supermassive black hole exists in this region. The upper branch contains the regular spiral galaxies, which are denoted by the letter S. The lower branch contains the barred spiral galaxies, which are denoted by the letters SB. These galaxies can be further divided into other groups shown in the diagram.

Just before the diagram breaks off into the two branches which contain the spiral galaxies, we find the intermediate galaxies between elliptical and spiral galaxies, known as lenticular galaxies. Lenticular galaxies are given the symbol S0. Like spiral galaxies, lenticular galaxies have a disk like structure and a central bulge. Unlike spiral galaxies. the disks of lenticular galaxies have no visible spiral structure. Like elliptical galaxies, lenticular galaxies galaxies have very little star formation. Well, to know more follow me. 1434875340107237332_4008710248

Sometimes galaxies interact with each other and can even merge to form new galaxies. NGC 3169 and NGC 3166 are interacting galaxies located in the constellation Sextans about 70 million light years away. The distance between these galaxies is about 50,000 light years. Galaxies such as these are gravitationally interacting. Eventually, these two galaxies may collide to form an entirely new galaxy, most likely an elliptical galaxy. Sometimes the gravitational interactions between galaxies can cause hydrogen within both galaxies to collapse, triggering star formation. During a galactic collision, neither Galaxy has enough momentum to keep going, thus they fall into each other and merge. During a galactic collision, very rarely do stars actually collide with one another. The distances between the stars is so immense that the chances of stars actually colliding is astronomically low.

NGC 3521: Galaxy in a Bubble
.
"Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me."
.
Gorgeous spiral galaxy NGC 3521 is a mere 35 million light-years away, toward the constellation Leo. Relatively bright in planet Earth's sky, NGC 3521 is easily visible in small telescopes but often overlooked by amateur imagers in favor of other Leo spiral galaxies, like M66 and M65. It's hard to overlook in this colorful cosmic portrait, though. Spanning some 50,000 light-years the galaxy sports characteristic patchy, irregular spiral arms laced with dust, pink star forming regions, and clusters of young, blue stars. Remarkably, this deep image also finds NGC 3521 embedded in gigantic bubble-like shells. The shells are likely tidal debris, streams of stars torn from satellite galaxies that have undergone mergers with NGC 3521 in the distant past.

The Whirlpool Galaxy is a spiral galaxy located some 30 million light years away in the constellation Canis Venatici and is about 60 thousand light years across. This beautiful galaxy can be seen by amateur astronomers, either through a telescope or binoculars. It's quite amazing how you can view an entire galaxy 30 million light years away through a small telescope or binoculars. 
The Whirlpool Galaxy, or just simply M51a, is a popular target for many astronomers. M51a offers scientists new information on the spiral structure of galaxies and galaxy interactions, as well as star formation. Like most galaxies, a supermassive black hole exists at the galactic  centre of M51a. 
M51a is currently interacting with a much smaller galaxy, NGC 5195. This interaction is causing enhanced star formation near the core of M51a. The gravitational interactions are compressing hydrogen, triggering intense star formation. Astronomers estimate that this will likely continue for another 100 million years.

This stunning image, captured by the Hubble Space Telescope, shows part of the sky in the constellation of Sagittarius (The Archer). The region is rendered in exquisite detail - deep red and bright blue stars are scattered across the frame, set against a background of thousands of more distant stars and galaxies. Two features are particularly striking: the colors of the stars, and the dramatic crosses that burst from the centers of the brightest bodies. While some of the colors in this frame have been enhanced and tweaked during the process of creating the image from the observational data, different stars do indeed glow in different colors. Stars differ in color according to their surface temperature: very hot stars are blue or white, while cooler stars are redder. They may be cooler because they are smaller, or because they are very old and have entered the red giant phase, when an old star expands and cools dramatically as its core collapses.

Find out apeiron_universe_'s Instagram Do you know Helix Nebula contains several knots ? If not, then read below: The Helix Nebula was the first planetary nebula discovered to contain cometary knots. Its main ring contains knots of nebulosity, which have now been detected in many nearby planetaries. These knots are highly radially symmetric (from the PNN) and are described as "cometary", each centered on a core of neutral molecular gas and containing bright cusps (local photoionization fronts) towards the central star and tails away from it. All tails extend away from the PNN in a radial direction. Excluding the tails, they are (very approximately) the size of the Solar system, while each of the cusp knots are optically thick due to Lyc photons from the PNN. There are more than 20,000 cometary knots estimated to be in the Helix Nebula.

The excitation temperature varies across the Helix nebula.The rotational-vibrational temperature ranges from 1800 K in a cometary knot located in the inner region of the nebula are about 2.5′ (arcmin) from the central PNN, calculated at about 900 K in the outer region at the distance of 5.6′.

.
"Hast thou an arm like God? or canst thou thunder with a voice like him?"
.
This symmetric cloud dubbed the Boomerang Nebula was created by a high-speed wind of gas and dust blowing from an aging central star at speeds of nearly 600,000 kilometers per hour. The rapid expansion has cooled molecules in the nebular gas to about one degree above absolute zero - colder than even the cosmic background radiation - making it the coldest known region in the distant Universe. Shining with light from the central star reflected by dust, the frigid Boomerang Nebula is believed to be a star or stellar system evolving toward the planetary nebula phase.  This Hubble image was recorded using polarizing filters (analogous to polaroid sunglasses) and color coded by the angle associated with the polarized light. The gorgeous result traces the small dust particles responsible for polarizing and scattering the light. The Boomerang Nebula spans about one light year and lies about 5,000 light years away toward the constellation Centaurus.

The Boomerang Nebula spans about one light year and lies about 5,000 light years away toward the constellation Centaurus. . #amazing #astronomy #beauty #chandra #bible #bibletext #nasabeyond #constellation #creation #galaxy #hubble #hubbletelescope #interstellar #nature #nasa #cosmos #hubblehangout #space #universe #scripture #naturelovers #cosmology #science #hst

Find out astrophysicsman's Instagram NGC 3314 is a pair of overlapping galaxies located some 117-140 light years away in the constellation Hydra. Although these galaxies may appear to be interacting, their actually not. The galaxies are too far apart and therefore do not interact with each other. This is actually a very unique alignment, and has given astronomers the opportunity to study and measure the properties of interstellar dust in the face-on foreground galaxy which appear dark against the background galaxy. 
In March 2000 while observing NGC 3314 astronomers spotted a green-like star. Astronomers have theorized that this may have been a supernova explosion, however, it still remains unknown.

Find out astrophysicsman's Instagram Are we alone in the universe? Is Earth the only habitable world in the universe? The answer to these questions may be closer than we think, literally. When we talk of other life forms in the universe we usually think of other planets light years away that contain life. However, new findings are showing that there may be other habitable worlds within our own solar system. Europa, Enceladus, Titan, and Mars all show promise. 
Europa is one of the four Galilean moons of Jupiter. The Voyager flybys of the moon showed evidence Europa harbours a subsurface ocean, which is home to organic compounds. Water and organic compounds sounds extremely promising. Europa, however, isn't the only world where water and organic compounds exist, or use to exist. Saturn's moon Enceladus, like Europa, contains a subsurface ocean of liquid water rich in organic compounds. Mars is known to have once had rivers, lakes, and perhaps even oceans of liquid water across its surface. Mars also contains organic compounds. Life may not exist there anymore, but maybe it once did. Titan, however, is a different story. Although Titan has hydrocarbons and other organic compounds, it doesn't have liquid water. It still has a liquid on its surface, however. This liquid isn't water, it's liquid methane and ethane. If life exists on Titan it will be far different than any life forms we've encountered. 
Are we alone? New findings even within our own solar system suggest that we are in fact not alone. However, any life forms in our solar system are likely going to be very simple organisms, likely a kind of bacteria. What about complex life? We may have to look deeper into space to find answers.

Find out astrophysicsman's Instagram It's interesting that the life and death of a star is determined by the stars mass. Massive stars, such as O-type stars, tend to live relatively short lives (in astronomical terms). Massive stars such as these live only a few hundred millions years until they die in a supernova explosion. Why is this? Why is it that massive stars live short lives? Because the star is so massive it has a very high temperature and tends to burn its nuclear fuel at a fairly fast rate. The hydrogen within the star is fused into helium at a much faster rate in higher mass stars than lower mass stars. Lower mass stars, such as our sun, can continue to burn nuclear fuel in their cores for billions of years, and even lower mass stars, such as M stars, can live for trillions of years until they burn all their nuclear fuel. These stars not only live differently, but will also die differently. Massive stars will die in massive supernova explosions and will form either a neutron star, a pulsar, or a black hole depending on its mass. Lower mass stars will die a much quieter death. Rather than bursting apart, lower mass stars will simply expand and eventually fade away, forming a planetary nebulae with a white dwarf at its centre.
