      Nebula come in a wide variety of forms, like the Cat’s Eye Nebula (NGC). This is a composite x-ray/optical light image from the Hubble and the Chandra X-ray Observatory. X-ray observations have revealed something curious about the young star that illuminates McNeil’s Nebula, a glowing jewel of cosmic dust in the .

The first X-ray source in Apus discovered by our X-ray observatory satellites or rockets is unknown.. Above is a sky plot of the X-ray sources detected by the ROSAT all-sky survey in the Chamaeleon star-forming cloud complex. X-ray sources (Xs in the diagram) along the h longitude are in the constellation Apus.

The Chandra Deep Field South (CDF-S) is an image taken by the Chandra X-ray Observatory satellite.. The location has, like the Lockman Hole, a relatively clear "window" through the clouds of neutral hydrogen gas in our Milky Way galaxy. This allows us to clearly see the rest of the universe in X-rays.. The image is centered on a patch of sky in the Southern Hemisphere .

[Goddard Space Flight Center.; Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory.;]. the Chandra X-ray Observatory, detects X-ray radiation that has travelled across the Universe. The information that the telescope collects is then beamed down to astronomers on Earth to study and to create fantastic pictures.

chandra NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory was launched on Space Shuttle Columbia in July of Chandra X-Ray Observatory The Chandra X-ray Observatory is the third in NASA’s family of Great Observatories that includes the Hubble Space Telescope and the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory.

Chandra detects X-ray light from very hot (millions of degrees) places in the universe, such as exploding stars, galaxy clusters and matter swirling. Cygnus is a northern constellation lying on the plane of the Milky Way, deriving its name from the Latinized Greek word for swan.

Cygnus is one of the most recognizable constellations of the northern summer and autumn, and it features a prominent Constellation X-Ray Observatory book known as the Northern Cross (in contrast to the Southern Cross).Cygnus was among the 48 constellations listed by the 2nd Pronunciation: /ˈsɪɡnəs/, genitive /ˈsɪɡnaɪ/.

Credit: X ray: NASA / CXC / SAO; Optical: NASA / STScI. ETA CARINAE ( light years) One of the brightest parts of the Milky Way is located in the constellation Carina (the keel). The Carina Nebula is composed mostly of hydrogen gas which is seen as pink and purple in this image.

The brightest star in the nebula, known as Eta Carinae, isFile Size: 6MB. The Arches Cluster, an open cluster in Sagittarius constellation discovered inis the densest cluster of its kind known in the Milky Way.

It lies at a distance of 25, light years from Earth and only about light years from the centre of the Milky Way. Image: Chandra X-ray Observatory. NASA/CXC/UMass Amherst/ et al. X-rays were first observed and documented in by German scientist Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen.

He discovered that firing streams of x-rays through arms and hands created detailed images of the bones inside.

When you get an x-ray taken, x-ray sensitive film is put on one side of your body, and x-rays are shot through you. The constellation, one of the largest in the sky, contains three of the bright stars that make up the asterism of the Great Square.

(The fourth is Alpheratz, the brightest star in the neighbouring constellation of Andromeda.) Three stars in this constellation were notable in the study of extrasolar planets.

Observations by the Chandra X-ray Observatory show both the extreme temperatures of the main stars—up to 60, kelvins—and the star forming regions still extant in the surrounding nebula.

Chandra X-ray telescope sheds new light on the Tycho supernova remnant 20 October Astronomy Now The Chandra X-ray Observatory has captured intriguing images of the vast Tycho supernova remnant, first noted in when the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe reported a bright “new” star in the constellation Cassiopeia.

The Constellation-X mission is a large collecting area X-ray observatory emphasizing high spectral resolution (R=E/ΔE from to ) and a broad energy band (–60 keV). The International X-Ray Observatory (IXO) is a NASA, ESA, and JAXA joint mission.

It requires a mirror assembly with unprecedented characteristics that cannot be provided by existing optical. This video opens with wide optical and infrared images of the constellation Cygnus, then zooms into the Cygnus X region using radio, infrared and gamma-ray images.

NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory observed X-ray emissions from the Crab Nebula, a supernova remnant located light-years from Earth. Triangulum constellation is located in the northern sky.

Its name means “the triangle” in Latin. The inset shows a composite of data from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory (blue) and the Hubble Space Telescope. The bright objects in the inset image are young, massive stars around M33 X-7, and the bright, blue Chandra source is M33 X   The Andromeda constellation, as imaged by NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory as part the first systematic survey of such objects in the solar neighborhood.

This is an artist’s conception of a slowly rotating neutron star Neutron star SGR + shows off.

Astronomy News – The human “Journey to the Beginning of Space and Time’ discovered another neutron star on June 5,that’s currently keeping astronomers and space scientists busy looking into the unusual properties of this newest member of the pulsar. The image combines data from NASA’s Chandra X-Ray observatory, ESA’s XMM-Newton and the German Aerospace Centre-led ROSAT satellite.

Chandra also took a separate close-up of the upper left of the cold front, revealing some unexpected details. The Perseus galaxy cluster contains thousands of galaxies and a supermassive black hole at the centre. Figure 7: Chandra X-Ray Observatory image of M The dark vertical and horizontal lines, and the streaks from the brightest stars, are instrument effects.

Figure 7 shows an X-ray image of about a thousand X-ray-emitting stars in the Orion Nebula star cluster (ONC), taken by the Chandra X-Ray Observatory. 9 The X-rays are produced in the very.The International X-ray Observatory (IXO) is a new collaboration between NASA, ESA, and JAXA which is under study for launch in IXO will be a large kilogram Great Observatory-class mission which will build upon the legacies of the Chandra and XMM-Newton X-ray observatories.

It combines elements from NASA's Constellation-X program and ESA's XEUS .The 1, kg space observatory built at a cost of Rs crore has five scientific instruments to study celestial objects in the universe for the first time at optical, ultraviolet and x-ray wavebands simultaneously.

The instruments are a soft x-ray telescope, an ultraviolet imaging telescope, an imager and a scanning sky monitor.
