  • NASA releases Hubble space telescope images for its anniversary

Hubble Telescope can take the only image of the portion of the Lagoon Nebula, as the size of the Nebula is very large.

The star in the Lagoon Nebula is only one million years old and will live five times as many years. To celebrate its 28th year in orbit, some of Hubble's precious observation time was used to observe a colossal stellar nursery called the Lagoon Nebula. NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA), which jointly run the Hubble mission, release great photos every April to celebrate these milestones.

CNET reported that since the Hubble Space Telescope launched on April 24, 1990, the telescope has made over 1.5 million observations and captured images of more than 43,500 celestial objects. The nebula, about 4,000 light-years away, is 55 light-years wide and 20 light-years tall. The nebula is large enough and can be seen with the naked eye on clear, dark nights.

The second image Hubble sent back was taken with the telescope's infrared capabilities. That star, Herschel 36, is in the Lagoon Nebula, four thousand light-years from Earth. The observations were taken by Hubble's Wide Field Camera 3 between February 12 and Feb 18, 2018. However, some of them are young stars within the Lagoon Nebula itself.

The Lagoon Nebula was first cataloged in 1654 by the Italian astronomer Giovanni Battista Hodierna. Jeletic noted that thanks to the Hubble Space Telescope, NASA was able to learn more about scientific discoveries such as dark energy and was able to capture Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 making an impact on Jupiter.

Although the clouds have a majestic and peaceful appearance, they are in a constant state of flux due to the torrent of radiation from the star, as well as the high-velocity particles of stellar winds.

The inspiration for Lagoon Nebula's name may not be immediately obvious in the images. Located at the center of the photo, the star, known as Herschel 36, is about 200,000 times brighter than our Sun.

According to the order, the total admitted financial debt of the corporate debtor, Electrosteel Steels Ltd, was Rs 13,395 crore. Electrosteel has a commissioned capacity of 1.5 million tonnes and planned capacity of 2.51 million tonnes.

The scientists have found out that the Herschel 36 is nearly 32 times larger than our sun and also much warmer than our Sun.

Here's to another 28 years among the stars, Hubble!

Herschel 36's radiation sculpts the surrounding cloud by blowing some of the gas away, creating dense and less dense regions.

Among the sculptures created by Herschel 36 are two interstellar twisters - eerie, rope-like structures that each measure half a light-year in length.

At some point in the future, these clouds will collapse under their own weight and give birth to a new generation of stars. Recently, the spectacular Lagoon Nebula images were released by the Hubble team.It was really a visual treat for stargazers looking at the Lagoon Nebula images.

Only by combining optical and infrared data can astronomers paint a complete picture of the ongoing processes in the nebula.
