Find out astrophysicsman's Instagram Nebulae are stellar nurseries. Deep inside a nebulae stars are born. Hydrogen within the nebulae collapses under gravitational forces. Gravitational forces draw the hydrogen toward the core at an ever increasing rate. As the hydrogen collapses the temperature increases. The gas has now become a protostar. The temperature climbs to millions of degrees until a process known as nuclear fusion takes place. The hydrogen atoms fuse together to create helium atoms. The star flares into life. Now a forceful stellar wind sweeps away the surrounding material and lights up nearby gas. A star is born. 
If you view the image above, which is an image of a small portion of the Carina Nebula, you will realize that near the top of the large pillar of gas and dust there are strange looking clumps. These clumps of gas and dust are the beginning stages of star formation. The hydrogen gas is collapsing under the force of gravity, and, in a few million years or so, these clumps of gas and dust will become stars.

✔ ثبت با کیفیت ترین تصاویر از زمین توسط نسل جدید ماهواره های هواشناسي با نام GOES-16
این ماهواره پیشرفته که اخیرا و در یک همکاری مشترک میان ناسا و بخش هواشناسي آن به فضا ارسال شده، از ارتفاع 22300 مایلی تصاویر فوق العاده ای را به زمین ارسال می نماید.
محققین اميدوارند با استفاده از اطلاعات ارسال شده شناخت بهتری نسبت به سیستمهای پیچیده آب و هوایی زمین یافته و پیش بینی های مطمین تری ارایه نمایند.

NASA and the NOAA recently launched a satellite called GOES-16. This new satellite is part of a new generation of weather satellites that will give us more information on our planet's complex weather systems and will allow scientists to better predict weather across the globe. Just recently, GOES-16 began sending back its first images of Earth, and they are spectacular! GOES-16 observes Earth from an equatorial view approximately 22,300 miles from the surface. This image was recently taken by #GOES-16, and it's absolutely stunning! Truly one of my favourite images of the Earth.

Find out astrophysicsman's Instagram The beautiful image above shows what the Milky Way looks like from Earth. What type of galaxy is the Milky Way? The Milky Way is a spiral galaxy some 100,000 light years away across, and contains around 200-500 billion stars. Our solar system is approximately 30,000 light years from the centre. The Milky Way could be as old as 12 billion years. 
Our galaxy is home to star clusters, nebulae, and hundreds of billions of stars and many more planets. It was once believed that the Milky Way Galaxy was the only galaxy, a kind of island universe. However, Edwin Hubble discovered in the early 20th century that the universe is in fact home to billions of galaxies. 
The Milky Way falls into the category of a spiral galaxy, however, it has an interesting distinction. The centre is not spherical, rather, our galactic centre is elongated, meaning that our galaxy is a barred spiral galaxy. Most of our knowledge about the Milky Way comes from the Spitzer space telescope. It discovered that our Galaxy is in fact made of 90% dark matter, meaning that all the matter we see in our galaxy is really only 10% of what's actually there. 
Unfortunately our galaxy won't always be here. We are currently on a collision course with our nearest galactic neighbour the Andromeda Galaxy. In about 4-5 billion years these two galaxies will collide and form one elliptical galaxy. 
The name Milky Way comes from the Latin words "via lactea" meaning milky road, which in turn was taken from the Greek words "galaxias kyklos" meaning milky circle. The name originated after a Greek myth. When Zeus fathered Heracles by a mortal female, he put his son on the sleeping Hera's breast to suckle him. Hera realized what Zeus had done and tore the baby from her breast. Her milk shot through the night sky, creating the Milky Way. The origin of our galaxies name is quite strange.
