  • End of a supergiant star before it collapses into a supernova

    Astronomers have witnessed in “real time” the end of life of a red supergiant star, observing its rapid self-destruction before it collapses into a type II supernova. This work challenges previous ideas about how these objects evolve just before they die. A follow-up examination of the supernova determined that the star, once located in the galaxy NGC 5731 about 120 million light-years away, was about ten times more massive than the Sun.



    A black hole likely to cause of new star formation

    Black holes are generally thought of as cosmic monsters absorbing everything in their path. But the massive black hole at the center of the Henize 2-10 galaxy is likely the cause of new star formation in this galaxy.



    Two interacting galaxies

    Hubble has captured images of two galaxies exchanging material. When two galaxies interact, gas, dust and even entire solar systems will be drawn away from one galaxy towards the other by these tidal forces.

    (76aH*) : August 6th is the anniversary of the atomic bomb explosion on Hiroshima in 1945.
    This date represents the entrance of Humanity into the age of Revelation (Apocalypsis).
    Thus, since August 6, 2021, we are in 76 aH, (meanning 76 after Hiroshima).
    It is also an “atheist” and universal calendar to replace the existing “monotheist”, religious and non universal calendars.
