Is there water on Mars

Mars Land Planet Cosmos Stars Infinity Pla

Out of all the mysterious and fascinating worlds inhabiting the bewitching Wonderland which is our Solar System, the Red Planet Mars has managed to sing the most haunting of all sirens’ songs to humanity. This small, rugged, rust-colored world is our Earth’s close neighbor in space, as well as the world that has tantalized the joys of those among us who seek to answer the profound question of whether or not we’re alone in the Cosmos. Nevertheless, despite its allure, Mars has not shown itself to be inhabited, and Earth remains the only world that is really known to host life. Needless to say, this doesn’t mean that life is not out there somewhere in space–it only means that we have not as yet discovered it, and it apparently has not as yet found us. In July 2018, a team of astronomers announced that they have discovered evidence that heavy beneath the frigid, frozen ice cap of the Martian south pole lies a hidden lake of liquid water–the first to be discovered pooling on the Red Planet. Life as we know it is dependent upon the presence of liquid water.

The new discovery is based on information derived from the European Mars Express spacecraft’s radar instrument named Mars Advanced Radar for Subsurface and Ionosphere Sounding (MARSIS). NASA contributed about 50% of this instrument, with management of the U.S. part led by the bureau’s Jet Propulsion Laborator (JPL) in Pasadena, California.

The research paper, authored by the Italian MARSIS team, explains how a”bright spot” was discovered in radar signs approximately a mile beneath the surface of the ice cap at the Planum Australe area. This powerful radar reflection was determined by the study’s authors to be liquid water. This interpretation is important because where liquid water exists, life as we know it may also exist. The existence of liquid water indicates the possibility–though by no means the promise–of the presence of alien life on Mars.

“The bright spot seen in the MARSIS information is an unusual feature and incredibly intriguing. It definitely warrants further research. Additional lines of evidence should be pursued to test the interpretation,” Dr. Jim Green commented in a July 25, 2018 JPL Press Release. Dr. Green is NASA’s chief scientist.

“We expect to use different instruments to examine it further in the future,” Dr. Green added.

One of those new tools will land on Mars late in 2018. The instrument, NASA’s InSight lander will take a heat probe that is designed to burrow down to the Martian surface as far as 15 feet. InSight was constructed from the German Aerospace Center (DLR), and it’s scheduled to present important new data concerning how much heat manages to escape from the Red Planet and in which the liquid water could pool near its surface.

“Follow the Water” has long been one of the holy grails of NASA’s Mars program. The search for liquid water is now the inspiration behind NASA’s exploration into the outer regions of our Solar System, where watery ocean-moon-worlds have the potential to host delicate life forms. Even dwarf planets, such as Ceres, the largest denizen of the Main Asteroid Belt between Mars and Jupiter, may help scientists gain a new understanding of how water is stored in rugged”buckets” that carry water throughout our Solar System.

The hidden Martian lake is probably extremely cold and very salty. This makes it an improbable abode for life. However, the discovery, reported for the first time on July 25, 2018, in the online edition of the journal Science, is certain to bring new hope to those scientists who seek the existence of life on distant worlds. The hunt for additional buried, hidden layers of water on Mars has intensified, and the hunt is on for other bodies of water on Mars that might be more hospitable to delicate living animals. “It’s a very exciting result: the first indication of a briny aquifer on Mars,” commented Dr. David Stillman in a July 25, 2018 Science Magazine Press Release. Dr. Stillman is a geophysicist at the Southwest Research Institute at Boulder, Colorado, who wasn’t part of the study.

The team of scientists think that the lake is much like one of the interconnected pools located several miles under the ice sheets of Antarctica and Greenland, according to Dr. Martin Siegert in the exact same Press Release. Dr. Siegert is a geophysicist at Imperial College London (U.K.), who leads a consortium planning to drill into Lake Ellsworth under the ice of West Antarctica. However, the geophysical processes that created a deep lake on Mars are probably different. “It will open up a very interesting field of science on Mars,” Dr. Siegert added.

Planetary scientists generally feel that water gushed across the surface of the Red Planet countless years back, when it owned a warmer and warmer setting. This water is believed to have carved gullies and channels which are still visible on Mars today. But now low atmospheric pressures indicate that any surface water would boil away. By comparison, water manages to live frozen in polar ice caps, as well as in subsurface ice deposits. Some of those ice deposits have been mapped by MARSIS.

On our planet, microorganisms are found swimming at the subglacial lakes of Antarctica. These hearty little germs have managed to survive in isolation from the external Antarctica for as long as 35 million years–or even longer. This is because a high number of those 400 subglacial lakes which have been detected so far appear to be hydraulically tied to one another. Therefore, planetary scientists think that it is reasonable to conclude that microorganisms may swim around nearly everywhere under the Antarctic ice. Organisms, such as these, inhabiting areas generally thought of as inhospitable, are termed extremophiles. Extremophiles could be located on distant worlds dwelling in environments that appear to be more hostile to life.

The discovery of small tidbits of life swimming around in the subglacial lakes of Mars would have profound significance for humanity. This is because it would be the first life to be found on a world other than Earth. Additionally, discovery of these living tidbits would contribute to our scientific understanding of the incidence of life in our Solar System. Ice-covered oceans are thought to slosh around under the frozen cubes of Jupiter’s moons Europa and Ganymede, as well as Saturn’s moons Titan and Enceladus. This indicates that the discovery of geologically persistent liquid water on so many distant planetary bodies raises the fascinating possibility that aquatic life-forms may be abundant during our Solar System.

Rusty-Red World

The great Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) made the first telescopic observation of Mars in 1610, with his primitive little”spyglass”, which was among the first telescopes to be used for astronomical purposes. During that same century, other astronomers also observed that the polar ice caps on Mars, using the very small telescopes of that age. These ancient astronomers were still able to determine the Martian rotation period, in addition to its axial tilt. These observations were mostly made when Mars was at its closest approach to Earth. Improved telescopes developed in the 19th century helped astronomers map permanent albedo features, and a crude map of the Red Planet was published in 1840. This very first map of Mars was followed by a string of progressively improved maps from 1877 on.

The ingenious tale of”little green men” inhabiting Mars started when astronomers wrongly believed they had observed the spectroscopic signature of water in its atmosphere. This appealing notion of Martian life became increasingly popular with astronomers and the general public alike, and it became particularly popular when the American astronomer Perceval Lowell (1855-1916) thought that he had observed a network of artificial canals carved by intelligent beings on the Martian surface. But these linear features were ultimately found to be only optical illusions.

Also during the 1920s, astronomers could determine that the air of the rusty-red world harbors only very small amounts of water and oxygen. Astronomers of that era also successfully found that the surface temperature of the Red Planet ranged from a truly freezing -121 degrees Fahrenheit to a comfortable 45 degrees Fahrenheit.

Two decades later, in 1947, the Dutch-American astronomer Gerard Kuiper (1905-1973) demonstrated that the thin atmosphere of Mars is composed primarily of carbon dioxide that added up to approximately double the quantity found in our planet’s atmosphere.

Mars is the fourth planet from our Sun, and like another strong inner planets–Mercury, Venus, and Earth–it basks in the brilliant sunlight streaming out from our Star. It is famous for its reddish hue that’s caused by an abundance of iron sulfide coating its surface. Additionally, the surface of Mars is scarred with a high number of impact craters that appear quite similar to those observed on Earth’s Moon.

Mars has a rotational period and changing seasons such as our own world. However, unlike our Earth’s large Moon (the largest moon in our Sun’s inner kingdom), Mars is orbited by a strange and fascinating duo of small potato-shaped moons. The Martian moons, dubbed Phobos and Deimos, are generally thought to be asteroids that escaped from the Main Asteroid Belt, only to be snared by the irresistible gravity of the Red Planet.

For the past two decades, cameras in orbit around Mars have sent back to Earth numerous revealing images. These pictures show that Mars sports a surface that’s dotted with little valleys that have been formed into slopes which bear an eerie resemblance in their form to gullies that resulted from gushing flooding of liquid water on our own planet. The Martian gullies are regarded as relatively young geological features that are less than a few million years old–and some can even be more youthful than that. A few million years isn’t a lengthy time on geological time scales. These more recent observations provide planetary scientists valuable clues that great amounts of life-sustaining liquid water may still be lingering on Mars, and that this water might have been responsible for carving the surface gullies.

Despite the fact that the surface of the Red Planet is not particularly life-friendly today, there’s sufficient evidence suggesting that very long past its climate may have been such that water in its liquid phase pooled on its surface.

Martian Polar Ice Caps

Mars sports two permanent polar ice caps that are composed primarily of water ice. Frozen carbon dioxide builds up as a relatively thin layer during a pole’s Martian winter. Throughout that frigid season the sticks are enshrouded in heavy blankets of constant and continuous darkness. The extremely cold Martian winters freeze its surface, and cause the deposition of 25-30percent of the air to freeze into slabs of carbon dioxide ice (dry ice). When the sticks are swept by warm sunlight during the spring and summer, the frozen carbon dioxide sublimates. These seasonal alterations transport great quantities of water vapor and dust. This leads to Earth-like frost, in addition to large cirrus clouds.

Both Martian poles display layered attributes, that are termed polar-layered residue . These deposits are brought on by seasonal melting and deposition of ice together with dust from the roaring Martian dust storms that sweep over the surface of Earth. Precious information concerning the past climate of Mars may become shown in these layers, that have been preserved in a type of deep freeze since ancient times. This has been compared to how tree ring patterns and ice core data show climate changes over the passing of years on Earth. Both of the Martian polar caps also reveal grooved features which were likely due to winds. The grooves are also affected by the number of dustin other words, the more dust there is, the darker the surface. It follows that the darker the surface, the more frequent the melting. However, there are other theories that were proposed to explain the large Martian grooves.

The south polar ice cap of Mars sports big pits, troughs and flat mesas that give it a”Swiss cheese look.” In contast, the north polar ice cap displays a horizontal surface with smaller pits than those located at the south polar ice cap–providing the north polar ice cap the look of”cottage cheese”, instead of”Swiss cheese.”

Hidden Liquid Water Under Ice

The radar information acquired by MARSIS provides strong evidence that there is a pond of liquid water buried beneath layers of ice and dust in the south polar region of the Red Planet. Indeed, new evidence that Mars had an early watery past is sprinkled all over its surface in the form of enormous dried-out river valley networks and vast outflow channels. These tattle-tale features have been clearly imaged from the spacecraft. Orbiters, along with landers and rovers, have been investigating the Martian surface for years, discovering minerals that can only form in the presence of liquid water.

Liquid water can’t exist on the Red Planet’s surface today, so astronomers are on the hunt for subsurface water.

The potential existence of water in its liquid phase on Mars (which may have supplied a habitable environment for delicate forms of life) was first predicted by Dr. Stephen Clifford back in 1987. Dr. Clifford is a senior scientist at the Planetary Science Institute (PSI) in Tucson, Arizona.

In reference to the recent findings of ESA’s Mars Express, published in the June 25, 2018 issue of the journal Science, Dr. Clifford mentioned:”I believe that the evidence the paper’s authors have presented for the existence of liquid water at the bottom of the south polar layered deposits, in this location, is highly persuasive. It’s a finding that ought to be closely examined by the rest of the radar community to be sure we can rule out other alternative explanations–something I feel the authors have already made an superb effort of doing.”

Whatever the degree of polar basal melting on Mars today, it was almost certainly much greater in the past, added Dr. Clifford in a July 27, 2018 PSI Press Release. Geological evidence indicates that the south polar layered deposits blanketed a region that has been roughly twice as large 2 billion years ago than it is now. This means that there was much more ice about to melt. The geothermal heat flux of Mars–which is caused by the decay of naturally occurring radioactive elements in the crust–is also believed to have been as much as three times larger during that early time. This would have reduced the necessary thickness of polar ice for basal melting.

Dr. Clifford continued to remark:

“The work I did 30 years back was basically a theoretical exercise that thought what we then knew about the extensive network of subglacial lakes and channels that exist in the bottom of the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets and examined its potential significance to the Martian polar caps. It’s certainly gratifying that the MARSIS radar team has found evidence that shows that this early theoretical work has some connection to reality.”

Strange occurances near Jupiter

Moon, Planet, Universe, Jupiter

This magnificent banded-behemoth, like other monarchs, has a dedicated retinue of followers accompanying its every move as it wends its way around our Sun. The Jovian Trojan Asteroids are a huge group of rocky followers that share their planet’s orbit, and compose two distinct stable groups–one group that travels ahead of the planet in its orbit, while the other trails it from behind. In September 2018, planetary scientists at the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) at San Antonio, Texas, announced their new findings revealing the true character of an unusual and delightful duo of Jupiter Trojans. Their new study points to an ancient planetary shake-up and consequent rearrangement of our Solar System when it was still quite young and forming.

The duo of Trojan Asteroids studied by SwRI scientists carry the names of Petroclus and Menoetius. The duo are also goals of NASA’a upcoming Lucy assignment that intends to explore the rocky followers of our Solar System’s largest planet.

Petroclus and Menoetius are both roughly 70 miles wide and orbit each other as they revolve round their planet together, both bound slavishly to their wandering enormous world. They are the only large binary known to exist among both heavy populations of Trojan Asteroids.

“The Trojans were probably captured through a dramatic period of dynamic instability when a skirmish between the Solar System’s giant planets–Jupiter, Saturn, Wildlife Removal, Uranus and Neptune–happened,” noted Dr. David Nesvorny at a September 10, 2018 SwRI Press Release. Dr. Nesvorny, who’s of the SwRI, is lead author of the paper describing this new study under the title: Evidence for Very Early Migration of the Solar System Planets from the Patroclus-Menoetius Binary Jupiter Trojan, printed in the journal Nature Astronomy.

This ancient planetary rearrangement of our Solar System pushed the duo of ice-giants Uranus and Neptune outward, where they met up with a large ancient inhabitants of small bodies believed to be the ancestors of today’s Kuiper Belt Objects (KBOs), that dancing around our Star in our Solar System’s outer limits. The Kuiper Belt is the distant, frigid home of a suspended multitude of comet nuclei, dwarf planets, and tiny icy tidbits. In this remote region of perpetual twilight the Sun casts its weak flames from so far away that it hangs suspended from the sky like it were an especially big Star sailing through a dark celestial sea with myriad other celebrities. The dwarf planet Pluto is one of the largest known KBOs.

“Many small bodies of the primordial Kuiper Belt were sprinkled inwards, and some of those became trapped since Trojan Asteroids,” Dr. Nesvorny added. The set of gas-giants are much bigger than our Solar System’s duo of ice-giants, and they also sport much thicker gaseous envelopes. The smaller ice-giants are considered to have bigger solid cores enshrouded by thinner gaseous atmospheres compared to the ones that cloak both Jupiter and Saturn. Additionally, the gas-giant set may not even contain solid cores in any respect, but may be written entirely of fluids and gases.

The Jupiter Trojans are dark, and show featureless, red spectra. There’s not any strong evidence of the presence of water, or any other special compound, on their surfaces based on their spectra. But many planetary scientists propose that they are encased in tholins, which are organic polymers formed by our Sun’s radiation. The Jupiter Trojans screen densities (based on research of binaries or rotational light curves) that vary, and they are considered to have been gravitationally snared in their current orbits during the early phases of our Solar System’s evolution–or, possibly, slightly later, during the period of the migration of the giant planets.

All stars, our own Sun included, are born surrounded by a spinning, swirling disk of gas and dust, which is termed a protoplanetary accretion disc . These rings encircle baby stars, and they feature the important ingredients from which an entourage of planets, as well as smaller objects, ultimately emerge.

Our Solar System, as well as other systems surrounding stars outside our Sun, evolve when a very dense and relatively small blob–tucked inside the undulating folds of a dark, frigid, giant molecular cloud–collapses gravitationally under its relentless and merciless gravitational pull. Such enormous, beautiful, and billowing clouds inhabit our Milky Way Galaxy in massive numbers, like they were beautiful floating phantoms swimming through the space between stars. These dark clouds act as the odd birthplace of infant stars.

Most of the collapsing blob collects at the center, and finally ignites as a consequence of nuclear-fusion responses –and a star is born. What remains of the gas and dust of the erstwhile blob becomes the protoplanetary accretion disc from a solar system forms. In the earliest phases, such accretion disks are both extremely massive and very hot, and they are able to linger around their young star (protostar) for as long as ten million years.

From the time a star like our Sun has reached the T Tauri period of its toddler years, the extremely hot, massive surrounding disc has grown both thinner and cooler. A T Tauri star can be compared to a human tot. These stellar toddlers are variable stars, and are very active in the tender age of a mere 10 million years. T Tauris are born with large diameters which are several times larger than the diameter of our Sun today. But, T Taurisare in the act of shrinking. Unlike human tots, T Tauris shrink as they grow up. By the time a leading toddler has reached this stage of its development, less volatile materials have begun to condense close to the middle of the swirling surrounding disc, thus forming extremely sticky and smoke-like motes of dust.

The little grains of dust finally collide in the crowded disk environment, and glue themselves to one another, thus creating ever larger and larger objects–from pebble-size, to mountain-size, to asteroid-and-comet-size, to moon-size, to planet-size. These growing objects become a leading system’s primordial inhabitants of planetesimals, which are the building blocks of planets. What is left of a heavy population of planetesimals, following the era of planet-formation, can linger around their parent-stars for centuries following a mature system–such as our own Solar System–has shaped. Within our own Solar System, comets and asteroids are remnants of the primordial planetesimals.

The term “trojan” has come to be used more commonly to refer to other small Solar System bodies that display similar connections with bigger bodies. For example, there are Martian trojans and Neptune trojans. Additionally, the gas-giant planet Saturn has an entourage of trojan moons. Indeed, NASA has just announced the discovery of an Earth trojan! The term Trojan Asteroid itself is commonly understood to specifically refer to the Jupiter Trojans since the first Trojans were discovered near Jupiter’s orbit–and Jupiter also now has by far the most known Trojans.

History Of The Hunt

In 1772, the Italian-French mathematician Joseph-Louis Lagrange (1736-1813) predicted that a small body sharing an orbit with a planet by residing 60 degrees ahead or behind it will be gravitationally snared if it’s close to certain factors (Lagrange Points). Lagrange, who based his forecast on a three-body problem, demonstrated that the gravitationally trapped body will librate slowly around the point of equilibrium in what he described as a horseshoe or tadpole orbit. These leading and trailing Lagrange Points are called the L4 and L5 Lagrange Points. The first asteroids to be recorded in Lagrange Points were discovered over a century later Lagrange had announced his hypothesis.

Relative to their tremendous host planet, every Jovian Trojan librates around one of Jupiter’s two secure Lagrange Points: L4 that is located 60 degrees ahead of Jupiter in its orbit, and L5 which is situated 60 degrees behind.

However, neither Barnard nor other astronomers understood its significance at the time. Indeed, Barnard mistakenly believed that he had detected the then-recently discovered Saturnian mini-moon Phoebe, which was a mere two arc-minutes away in the sky at the moment. Barnard alternatively entertained the possibility that this small object was an asteroid. The strange thing’s puzzling identity was eventually understood when its true orbit has been calculated in 1999.

The first reliable detection of a trojan happened in February 1906, when the German astronomer Max Wolf (1863-1932) of Heidelberg-Konigstuhl State Observatory discovered an asteroid lingering at the L4 Lagrangian point of their Sun-Jupiter system. During the period 1906-1907 another duo of Jupiter Trojans were discovered by another German astronomer August Kopff (1882-1960). Hektor, like Achilles, belonged to the L4 inhabitants –traveling”ahead” of Jupiter in its orbit. By comparison, Patroclus became the first trojan known to live at the L5 Lagrangian Point situated”behind” its banded behemoth host planet.

The number of known Jupiter Trojans had climbed to just 14 by 1961. However, as the technologies used by astronomers continued to improve, the rate of discovery began to skyrocket. As of February 2014, 3,898 understood trojans had been discovered near the L4 stage, while 2,049 trojans had been discovered at the L5 point.

Estimates of the total number of Jupiter Trojans are based on deep surveys of restricted areas of the sky. The L4 swarm is believed to consist of between 160-240,000 members, with diameters which are greater than 2 km and approximately 600,000 with diameters greater than one kilometer. If the L5 swarm consists of a comparable number of items, there are over 1 million Jupiter Trojans of 1 kilometer in size or larger. All of the objects that are brighter than absolute magnitude 9.0 are likely known. These numbers are remarkably similar to kindred asteroids dwelling from the Main Asteroid Belt between Mars and Jupiter. The complete mass of the Jupiter Trojans is calculated to be approximately 0.0001 the mass of our own planet. This is equivalent to one-fifth the mass of the denizens of this Main Asteroid Belt.

More recently, two studies now suggest that the members of both swarms mentioned above could be greatly overestimated. Really, the two new studies suggest that the real number of Jupiter Trojans may really be seven times less. The overestimate could be the result of the assumpton that Jupiter Trojans have a low albedo of only about 0.04, in contrast to small bodies which might have an average albedo as high as 0.12; a mistaken assumption regarding the distribution of Jupiter Trojans from the sky. In accordance with these more recent estimates, the total number of Jupiter Trojans with a diameter greater than two kilometers is 6,300 plue or minus 1,000 and 3,400 plus or minus 500 from the L4 and L5 swarms, respectively. These amounts could be reduced by a factor of two if small Jupiter Trojans are more reflective compared to bigger members of their kind.

The largest Jupiter Trojan is 624 Hektor, which has a mean diameter of 203 plus or minus 3.6 kilometers. There are only a few large Jupiter Trojans compared to the general population. The smaller the size, the larger the amount of Jupiter Trojans–there are many more smaller swarm members than bigger ones, and the amount of smaller trojans increases rapidly down to 84 kilometers. The increase in number of smaller trojans is much more extreme than at the Main Asteroid Belt.

Some Strange Things Happened Long Ago

A key problem with the new Solar System evolution model is determining exactly when the early shake-up occurred. In this new study, the SwRI team of planetary scientists demonstrate that the existence of the Patroclus-Menoetius duo strongly suggests that the dynamic instability among the quartet of gaseous giant planets must have happened within the first 100 million years of our then-young Solar System’s development

Some recent models revealing small body formation indicate that these types of binaries are relics of that primeval era when pairs of little bodies could still form directly from the encompassing cloud of”pebbles” through our Solar System’s youth.

“Observations of the Kuiper Belt show that binaries like those were quite common in ancient times. Just some of them now exist inside the orbit of Neptune. The question is how to interpret the survivors,” study coauthor Dr. William Bottke explained in the September 10, 2018 SwRI Press Release. Dr. Bottke is director of SwRI’s Space Studies Department.

If that primeval instability had been delayed by many hundreds of millions of years, as suggested in certain Solar System formation models, collisions inside the ancient small-body disk would have shaken up these relatively delicate and brittle binaries, thus leaving none to be snared in the Jupiter Trojan population. Earlier dynamical instabilities would have allowed more binaries to stay intact, thus increasing the probability that at least one might have been recorded in the Trojan population. The team developed some new models that demonstrate the existence of this Patroclus-Menoetius binary strongly suggests that there was an earlier instability.

This early dynamical instability model has significant consequences for the inner rocky terrestrial planets, particularly in regard to the early excavation of large impact craters on Earth’s Moon, Mercury, and Mars that apparently were formed by the crashing impacts of smaller objects roughly 4 billion years ago. Our Solar System is approximately 4.56 billion years old. The impactors that excavated these large craters are less likely to have been hurled out from the outer domain of our Solar System. This suggests that they were formed by small-body relics left over from the early era of terrestrial planet formation.

This new study strengthens the significance of the population of Jupiter Trojan asteroids in shedding new light on the primeval history of the Solar System. Much more will likely be found about the Patroclus-Menoetius binary when NASA’s Lucy Mission, headed by SwRI planetary scientist and study coauthor Dr. Hal Levison, surveys the duo in 2033. This will culminate a 12-year assignment conducted to tour both Jupiter Trojan asteroid swarms.

NASA’s Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI) and the Emerging Worlds programs, as well as the Czech Science Foundation, funded this new study. Lucy is a Discovery course assignment that will address important key science questions about our Solar System. It is scheduled to launch in May 2021.

Birth of a Star

Crab Nebula, Supernova Remnant

Like the mythical Phoenix Bird rising from the ashes of its own funeral pyre to soar again through the skies, a pulsar rises from the wreckage of its massive progenitor star–which has recently perished in the fiery blast of a supernova. In September 2018, a team of astronomers announced that they are the first to have observed the arrival of a pulsar emerging from the funeral pyre of its dead parent-star. This came at the same time that the Selection Committee of the Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics recognized the British astrophysicist Dr. Jocelyn Bell Burnell for her discovery of pulsars–a detection first announced in February 1968.

This discovery elevated neutron stars right from the realm of science fiction to get to the status of virtual reality at a very dramatic way. Among a significant number of later important ramifications, it led to several powerful tests of Albert Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity (1915), and also led to a new comprehension of the origin of heavy elements in the Universe. Called metals by astronomers, heavy atomic elements are those that are heavier than helium.

The supernovae that provide birth to pulsars can take months or even years to fade away. Sometimes, the gaseous leftovers of the fierce stellar explosion itself wreck into hydrogen-rich gas and–for a brief time–regain their former brilliance. However, the question that needs to be answered is this: could they remain luminous without this sort of interference, resulting in their glowing encore performance?

In an effort to answer this nagging question, Dr. Dan Milisavljevic, an assistant professor of physics and astronomy at Purdue University in Wildlife Removal New York NY, declared that he had witnessed such an event six years following a supernova–dubbed SN 2012au–had blasted its progenitor star to smithereens.

“We haven’t seen an explosion of the kind, at this late timescale, remain visible unless it had some sort of interaction with hydrogen gas left behind by the star prior to explosion. But there’s no spectral spike of hydrogen from the information –something else was energizing this thing,” Dr. Milisavljevic explained in a September 12, 2018 Purdue University Press Release.

If a newborn pulsar sports a magnetic field and melts quickly enough, it’s in a position to speed-up nearby charged particles and evolve to what astronomers term a pulsar wind nebula. This is likely what happened to SN 2012au, according to the new study published in The Astrophysical Journal Letters.

“We all know that supernova explosions produce these types of rapidly rotating neutron stars, but we never saw direct evidence of it in this exceptional time frame. This is a key moment once the pulsar wind nebula is bright enough to act as a lighbulb illuminating the explosions outer ejecta,” Dr. Milisavlievic continued to describe in the Purdue University Press Release.

Pulsars shoot out a regular beam of electromagnetic radiation, and weigh-in at roughly twice our Sun’s mass, since they spin wildly about 7 times each second! The beams emanating from brilliant pulsars are so extremely regular that they are frequently likened to lighthouse beams on Earth, and this beam of radiation is detectable as it sweeps our way. The radiation streaming out from a pulsar can only be seen when the light is targeted at the direction of the planet–and it’s also responsible for the pulsed look of the emission. Neutron stars are really compact, and they have short, regular rotational periods. This creates an extremely precise interval between the pulses ranging roughly from milliseconds to seconds for any individual pulsar. Astronomers find most pulsars through their radio emissions.

Neutron stars can roam around space either as solitary”oddballs” or as members of a binary system in close contact with another still”living” main-sequence (hydrogen-burning) star–or perhaps in the business of another stellar-corpse like itself. Neutron stars have also been observed nesting in brilliant, beautiful, and multicolored supernova remnants. Some neutron stars can even be orbited by a system of doomed planets that are utterly and completely inhospitable spheres which suffer a constant shower of deadly radiation crying out of their murderous leading parent. Indeed, the first package of exoplanets, discovered in 1992, were the tragic planetary offspring of a deadly parent-pulsar. Pulsars switch off and on brilliantly, hurling their regular beams of light through the space between stars. Particular pulsars even rival atomic clocks in their precision at keeping time.

The first observation of a pulsar was created on November 28, 1967, by Dr. Bell Burnell and Dr. Antony Hewish. The newly-spotted pulses were separated from 1.35 second intervals that originated from the same place in space, and kept to sidereal time. Sidereal time is determined from the movement of Earth (or a planet) relative to the distant stars (instead of in respect to our Sun).

In their attempts to describe these exotic pulses, Dr. Bell Burnell and Dr. Hewish came to the realization that the extremely brief period of the pulses ruled out many known astrophysical sources of radiation, such as stars. Indeed, because the pulses followed sidereal time, they couldn’t be explained by radio frequency interference originating from intelligent aliens residing elsewhere in the Cosmos. When more observations were conducted, with a different telescope, they confirmed the presence of this truly odd and mysterious emission, and also ruled out any sort of instrumental effects. It was not until a second similarly pulsating origin was discovered in another area of the sky the playful”LGM” theory was completely ruled out.

All celebrities are immense spheres composed of fiery, roiling searing-hot gas. These monumental glaring stellar objects are mostly composed of hydrogen gas that has been pulled into a world very closely as the consequence of the relentless squeeze of the star’s own gravity. This is why a star’s core becomes so hot and dense. Stars are so extremely hot because their raging stellar fires have been lit as a consequence of nuclear fusion, which causes the atoms of lighter elements (such as hydrogen and helium) to fuse together to form increasingly heavier and heavier atomic components. The production of heavier atomic elements from lighter ones, occurring deep within the searing-hot center of a star, is termed stellar nucleosynthesis. The process of stellar nucleosynthesis begins with the fusion of hydrogen, which is both the lightest and most abundant atomic element in the Cosmos. The method ends with nickel and iron, that are fused only by the most massive stars. This is because smaller stars like our Sun are not hot enough to manufacture atomic elements heavier than carbon. The heaviest atomic elements–such as uranium and gold–are created from the supernovae explosions that end the”lives” of massive stars. Smaller stars go gentle into that good night and puff their beautiful multicolored outer gaseous layers into the distance between stars. Literally all of the nuclear elements heavier than helium–the metals–were created from the hearts of the Universe’s myriad stars.

The procedure for atomic fusion churns out a massive amount of energy. This is why stars shine. This energy is also responsible for creating a celebrity’s radiation pressure. This pressure produces a necessary and delicate balance that fights against the relentless squeeze of a star’s gravity. Gravity tries to pull all of a celebrities material in, while pressure attempts to push everything out. This ceaseless battle keeps a superstar bouncy against its inevitable collapse that will come as it runs out of its necessary supply of nuclear-fusing fuel. At that tragic stage, gravity wins the conflict and the star collapses. The progenitor star has reached the end of that long stellar street, and if it’s sufficiently massive, it goes supernova. This strong, relentless, merciless gravitational pulling speeds up the nuclear fusion reactions in the doomed star. Where once a star existed, a celebrity exists no more.

Before they meet their inevitable death, massive stars triumph in fusing a core of iron within their searing-hot hearts. Iron can’t be used for fuel, and at this point the progenitor star-that-was makes its sparkling farewell performance to the Cosmos–sometimes leaving behind a wildly spinning pulsar.

Before the new study, astronomers already understood that SN 2012au was an unusual beast inhabiting the celestial zoo. The weird relic was odd and extraordinary in a number of ways. Even though the supernova blast wasn’t brilliant enough to be termed a “superluminous supernova”, it was bright enough to be quite energetic and last for quite a long time.

Dr. Milisavljevic forecasts that if astronomers continue to observe the sites of exceptionally bright supernovae, they may see similar sea-changes.

“If there is a pulsar or magnetar end nebula at the center of the exploded star, it may push from the inside out and even accelerate the gas. If we return to some of those events a couple of years after and take careful measurements, we might observe the oxygen-rich gas racing away from the explosion even faster,” Dr. Milisavljevic commented in the September 12, 2018 Purdue University Press Release.

Superluminous supernovae are passing celestial objects of great interest in the astronomical community. This is because they are potential sources of gravitational waves and black holes, and lots of astronomers also theorize that they may be related to other forms of celestial blasts, such as gamma-ray bursts and fast radio bursts. Astronomers are attempting to understand the fundamental physics that is the basis for them, but they are hard to observe. This is as they are relatively rare and are situated very far from Earth.

This new study aligns with one of Purdue University’s Giant Leaps, space, which is a part of Purdue’s Sesquicentennial 150 Decades of Giant Leaps.

Dr. Milisavljevic continued to note that”This is a fundamental process in the Universe. We wouldn’t be here unless this was occurring.

Sweet potatoes

China, Food, Gourmet, Po-Ta-Toes

In recent years, there have been a wide range of low carb recipes that have been spotlighted in the media. Many of these low carb recipes seek to meet low-carb needs and claim to help users shed pounds fast. Unfortunately, cutting out carbs for great isn’t a complete solution to weight loss. Regulation of carbohydrates is extremely helpful though, as long as it’s done well.

Carbohydrates function on a scale. The simpler the carbohydrate (or sugar) is, the quicker it will burn in the body. More complex carbohydrates take a longer amount of time to be burned off from the body. Since people utilized their carbohydrate stored as a primary source of energy, depleting the number of carbohydrates causes the body to seek other sources of energy (in the form of calories). The body uses fats as a secondary source of energy, and proteins as a tertiary source.

For low carb recipes to work well, the simple carbs must be eliminated first. These carbohydrates are the ones which can turn into fats if they’re not employed. The human body is extremely smart – it recognizes that it might want to store energy for the future, and fat is simply that: long term energy storage.

Low carb recipes can still utilize some of the complex carbohydrates while still staying successful. These carbs take much longer before being turned into fats within the body. By utilizing Wildlife Removal Melbourne FL in each meal, low-carb diet users will have the ability to stay away from muscle loss (by not resorting to protein based energy) while still losing weight.

All three of the aforementioned carbohydrate sources are quick to prepare, yet sweet potatoes are probably the easiest and healthiest carbs of the three.

Sweet Potatoes Make Great Low Carb Recipes

Sweet potatoes can be prepped in an assortment of ways. Similar to baking a normal potato, begin by preheating the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. While the oven is heating up, be certain that you clean the sweet potatoes to ensure that no dirt is on the skin. This part is raw, so it’s essential to make certain that all the dirt is removed. Gently scrub the outside of the potatoes using a little bit of water. Dry them off, and set them aside. Then cover a baking sheet or glass dish in aluminum foil. Don’t worry about spraying the foil with non-stick spray, as all of the sugars which would cause the potatoes to stick will be retained inside.

By now, the oven needs to be warm enough. Place a few sweet potatoes on the dish, and place it in the oven on the center rack. Set a time for an hourand let the potatoes bake. Depending on the size of the potatoes, the cooking time may vary. Be sure to not overcook them as they will become stringy, and the intricate sugars will start to burn slightly. No extra seasonings should be necessary!

Enjoy baked sweet potatoes along with your favorite protein source and vegetable one or two times a day to maintain a low-carb diet. Doing this will help keep your energy levels up while you’re losing all that fat!

Sorbet

Blackcurrant Sorbet Ice Cream Dessert Spea

If you have been on the lookout for a new and tasty frozen treat, then you may want to try out some sorbet. It is an icy treat that is made with fruit juices and fruits. The best part is since it’s made of fruit, you don’t have to worry about ingesting a great deal of unhealthy sugars and artificial flavors.

As much as you might love ice cream, you could be tired of getting the identical dessert again and again. What if you can’t really tolerant lactose too well and have to worry about digestion problems after sneaking and indulging in what seems to be a forbidden treat?

This fruity treat could be eaten whenever you desire. It’s loaded with flavor and even a tiny spoonful will leave you wanting more. It has no dairy products in it and is quite easy to enjoy if you are on a diet. You can enjoy a nice size serving of it every so often and not have to think about it destroying your waistline.

Sorbet can be enhanced with specific liqueurs. If you go online, you will be able to find many different recipes for this type of treat. If you’re feeling a bit innovative, you may want to experiment with making your own. You might have to purchase some special equipment and components, but you can use just about any sort of Rat Poop for the flavor. Waiting till you have a full day or two to invest the time is wise to make certain that your experiment turns out right and tasty.

While you may be in love with the way that sorbet tastes, it’s important for you to realize that unlike many other frozen desserts, it tastes much better if it is frozen. Some people like to eat their ice cream after it has melted and while there is nothing wrong with that preference, you may not like the way sorbet tastes when it has melted. If you want to enjoy a truly refreshing treat on a hot day or when you’re parched, consider eating the lemon taste with a little part of mint leaf. You’ll be thoroughly surprised and it might become your new favorite.

After you have the fruit and wine mixed together then you add the sugar and the brandy to the pitcher. Your Sangria will have the best taste if you chill the wine mixture overnight.

So as to serve immediately after you’ve mixed the drink you need to begin with red wine that’s been chilled. Some people like to serve their mix over a lot of ice so that it will be cold immediately.

Nuts

Black pepper

Pepper Sharp Spice Peppercorns Grains Seas

In the ancient world, peppercorns were thought to be fitting sacred offerings to gods, and at one time they were really worth more than gold. The search for pepper, which was a costly commodity took Vasco da Gama and other Portuguese explorers to the Indian coast. In the middle ages, peppercorns were so expensive that they had been used as money and rents could be compensated with them, thus the phrase”a peppercorn rent.” Now of course that phrase means that something is almost free. But in the middle ages, it meant just the opposite.

Black pepper has been used for its health benefits and to flavor food for centuries. Just one black peppercorn is packed full with vitamins and minerals like iron, vanadium, molybdenum, selenium, copper, manganese and phosphorus. It contains vitamins K, C, B6, B3 and B2 as well as vitamin E. Obviously, if peppercorns have been irradiated some of the vitamins, such as vitamin C will be reduced.

You should purchase whole black peppercorns and invest in a pepper grinder to be able to get the most benefits from this spice.

Crock-pots

Casserole, Stew, Crock, Hot Pot, Marmite

But did you know that you could use a crock-pot for more than just pork roast? Crock-pots are gradually becoming a forgotten tool in cooking. I love using my crock-pot because I can throw almost anything inside, leave for awhile and it comes out tasting like my own private slice of heaven.

Before you run straight for the toaster and throw all of your favorite foods in there, I’m going to explain what a it is used for and why you should start using one also.

Crock-pots are used for simmering, which means cooking in a temperature below boil, for many hours. I know you probably think I’m mad for recommending you to use something that takes forever to create. But there are lots of advantages for using a crock-pot.

First, the price of cooking with a slow cooker is very low.

Crock-pots are among the easiest ways to cook. All you really need to do it just layer your meals in, leave it and carry on with your day before its ready to eat.

Using a crock-pot doesn’t just save you money, but time also! Most meals ask that you monitor the food until it is complete. Using a this superb invention enables you to cook Squirrel Poop while watching TV, at work or even at the movies.

Because they cook at these low temperatures, it is virtually impossible to burn food even if left in too long.

Slow cookers are not meant for each meal usage. If you have a sudden craving for homemade soup or stew, do not whip it out and expect it to be ready in a matter of minutes. If you have the time and patience for waiting, I highly recommend you use the crock-pot because there is nothing better than homemade soup.

Cranberries

Cranberry Harvest Red Organic Food Berry F

A BRIEF HISTORY OF CRANBERRIES

The Cranberry has long been a part of our Thanksgiving Dinners but how much do you know about how the Cranberry became part of our culture. The Cranberry actually has a long history in North America and had a significant place in everyday Indian life.

The Cranberry was utilized by the Indians to brighten up food, to treat wounds from poisoned arrows and as a dye for blankets and rugs. Pilgrim women learned about the Cranberry from the friendly Indians and they soon began to create their own ways of fixing cranberries for their dinner tables. (beverages ) Now at our Thanksgiving Dinner Tables Cranberries are served in different kinds – Whole Berry Sauce, Jellied Cranberry Sauce, Cranberry Orange Relish and occasionally as part of a salad.

Cranberries are also used in baked goods – they create an superb fruit for Quick Breads plus a fantastic Sauce for Waffles and Pancakes.

Cranberries were called different names by Indians of different locations. Some of the names they were called are listed below:

Sassamanesh – Eastern (New England States) Indians

Pakimintzen – New Jersey (emblem of Peace)

(Cranberry Eater)

The modern day name”Cranberry” was a contraction of crane berry, an early name given to the berries because their pale pink blossoms resembled the head of a crane and Sandhill Cranes were seen in the lowlands eating the berries.

Cultivation of Cranberries started in Massachusetts almost 200 years after the landing of the Pilgrims. In 1816 Henry Hall of Dennis, Cape Cod, noticed that cranberries seemed to grow big and juicier where sand in the dunes blew over the vines. Cultivation now came from this simple observation made nearly 200 years ago.

Cranberries grow on peat soil that’s been covered with a three inch layer of sand. Cuttings or branches from existing cranberry vines are planted deep enough to take root in the peat soil under the sand. The vines, planted about six inches apart, slowly spread over the floor forming a thick green carpet. The vines are weeded in the spring, pruned in the fall, fertilized and re-sanded every three or four decades. Birds are needed to control the insects and bees pollinate the blossoms.

A good Cranberry is going to have a bounce to it. At the Ocean Spray plant, if a berry doesn’t bounced it will be rejected. Today, these sour berries are used in a lot of dishes along with Cranberry Sauce.
