Neste vídeo, começamos com a visão familiar da brilhante constelação de Órion (O Caçador) que etá cada dia mais evidente no nosso céu de primavera, para a direita do quadro. A brilhante estrela Sirius está no canto inferior esquerdo. 😍
Em seguida, ampliamos a região da espada do caçador para revelar a Nebulosa de Órion, também conhecida como Messier 42, um vasto berçário estelar a cerca de 1350 anos-luz da Terra. À medida que nos aproximamos, passamos a ter a visão do telescópio de inspeção VISTA, observando na parte infravermelha do espectro. O enorme campo de visão do novo telescópio permite a imagem de toda a nebulosa e seus arredores em uma única imagem e sua visão infravermelha também significa que ele pode espiar profundamente as regiões cheias de poeira cósmica normalmente escondidas e revelar as curiosidades das estrelas jovens muito ativas enterradas lá. 🚀
All of us aerospace buffs have definitely had our eyes on the ambitious BFR concept for a while now. Finally we have a small update! SpaceX plans on building a 'mini' version of the BFR and test it on a classic Falcon booster! Sounds pretty cool to me, although at this point it's not a Big Falcon Rocket, it's more like a Small Falcon Rocket. Although, I'll love it all the same! 🚀

Just 60 light-years away, the "newly" born Beta Pictoris is one of the best-known examples of a star surrounded by a dusty debris disc. 🌟 (Zoom in!)
A star system, just 20 million years old. 💥 #BOS
Earlier observations showed a warp of the disc, a secondary inclined disc and comets falling onto the star, all indirect, but tell-tale signs that strongly suggested the presence of a massive planet. Observations done with the NACO instrument on @ESOAstronomy ’s Very Large Telescope, have proven the presence of a planet around Beta Pictoris. It is located at a distance between 8 and 15 times the Earth-Sun separation — or Astronomical Units — which is about the distance Saturn is from the Sun. The planet has a mass of about nine Jupiter masses and the right mass and location to explain the observed warp in the inner parts of the disc.
This image, based on data from the Digitized Sky Survey 2, shows a region of approximately 1.7 x 2.3 degrees around Beta Pictoris.

The Sound Two Black Holes Merging! ✨ #BOS
- 🎧 (crank it up!)
The two merging black holes are each roughly 30 times the mass of the sun, with one slightly larger than the other. Time has been slowed down by a factor of about 100. The event took place 1.3 billion years ago. The incredibly powerful event, which released 50 times more energy than all the stars in the observable universe, lasted only fractions of a second. 💥 #LikeABOS
This animation by @caltechedu / @mitmedialab shows the collision of two black holes, a tremendously powerful event detected for the first time ever by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory, or LIGO. LIGO detected gravitational waves, or ripples in space and time generated as the black holes spiraled in toward each other, collided, and merged.
Scientists used the SXS (Simulating eXtreme Spacetimes) project to animate the environment around the star.
