NGC 7293, better known as the Helix nebula, is the nearest example of a planetary nebula, which is the eventual fate of a star, like our own Sun, as it approaches the end of its life. As it runs out of fuel, the star expels its outer envelope of gas outward to form a nebula like the Helix.

astrophography by knate myers at the karl g. jansky very large array (vla), a radio astronomy observatory located on the plains of san agustin, fifty miles west of socorro, new mexico. the vla was perhaps made most famous by carl sagan in the original cosmos documentary, and in the movie “contact”, which was based on his novel.

Using large scale supercomputers, NASA researches simulate the formation of stars in 2013.

In this image, a simulation shows the gas filaments that formed in an infrared dark cloud 800,000 years after the region began gravitational collapse. The extent of the main filament is about 4.5 parsecs in length. In the highest density fragments in the filament (red), molecular cloud cores are developing and will collapse further until they form stars.

Each simulation in this project used 1,000 – 4,000 processors on the Pleiades supercomputer at the NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) facility, for a total of 1 million processor-hours over several months of computation.

Book Sculpture: Derailing my train of thought by Thomas Wightman

Derailing my train of thought is a creative book sculpture project to convey the effects of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) on a person’s life using the example of a derailing train. Check out this creative project by Thomas Wightman, to convey this book art the sculpture shows a train traveling on a journey that has become disrupted, leading it to derail from its set path.
