The Galactic Core ~ This composite color infrared image of the center of our Milky Way galaxy reveals a new population of massive stars and new details in complex structures in the hot ionized gas. This panorama, the sharpest infrared picture ever made of the Galactic core, combines the sharp imaging of the Hubble Space Telescope's Near Infrared Camera and Multi-Object Spectrometer with color imagery from a previous Spitzer Space Telescope survey done with its Infrared Astronomy Camera…

The Hubble space telescope continues to peer into the deep unknown 25 years after it launched. Space expert and astronomer Alan Duffy from Swinburne University says its latest discovery is a cluster of monster stars 170 thousand light years from earth.

A huge fireball crashed into the Atlantic earlier this month - and went almost unseen. The event took place on February 6 at 14:00 UTC when a meteor exploded in the air 620 miles (1,000km) off the coast of Brazil. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-3459057/Largest-fireball-Chelyabinsk-falls-Earth-Nasa-reports-huge-explosion-seven-meter-space-rock-Atlantic.html#utm_sguid=151985,4cf4d4d3-39d5-5213-8613-e4be62863882

This galactic fireworks display is taking place in NGC 4258 (also known as M106), a spiral galaxy like the Milky Way. This galaxy is famous, however, for something that our galaxy doesn't have -- two extra spiral arms that glow in X-ray, optical, and radio light. These features, or anomalous arms, are not aligned with the plane of the galaxy, but instead intersect with it.
