NASA finds ‘monster’ black hole in tiny galaxy

NASA finds ‘monster’ black hole in tiny galaxy

The M60-UCD1, discovered by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope in 2013, is one of the smallest known galaxies. But now the space agency has discovered that the dwarf galaxy is harboring a “monster” black hole.

The diameter of M60-UCD1 is about 300 light years – just 1/500th of our galaxy’s width. However, it is packed with 140 million stars, which also makes it one of the densest galaxies.

8 Common Diseases Caused by Vitamin D Deficiency

8 Common Diseases Caused by Vitamin D Deficiency

Vitamin D refers to a group of fat-soluble secosteroids responsible for enhancing intestinal absorption of calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphate and zinc. In humans, the most important compounds in this group are vitamin D3 (also known as cholecalciferol) and vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol).[1] Cholecalciferol and ergocalciferol can be ingested from the diet and from supplements.[1][2][3]The body can…

Dangerous Acts After Meal

Dangerous Acts After Meal

* Don’t smoke- Experiment from experts proves that smoking a cigarette after meal is comparable to smoking 10 cigarettes (chances of cancer is higher).

* Don’t eat fruits immediately -When you eat your fruits with meals, the fruit is stuck in the stomach along with the contents of the meals and cannot reach the intestines in time. Lying there they get spoilt and spoil the remaining food in the…

Papaya Tea for Treating Uric Acid and Gout Problems

Papaya Tea for Treating Uric Acid and Gout Problems

Deliciously sweet with musky undertones and a soft, butter-like consistency, it is no wonder the papaya was reputably called the “fruit of the angels” by Christopher Columbus. Once considered quite exotic, they can now be found in markets throughout the year. Although there is a slight seasonal peak in early summer and fall, papaya trees produce fruit year round.

Papayas are spherical or…

Alien Bones found on Mars?

Alien Bones found on Mars?

An image captured by NASA’s Curiosity rover on August 14 is causing quite a stir online, with internet users and bloggers asserting an ‘alien thigh bone’ has been spotted on the Red Planet. “Normally, I see rocks as rocks,” said one commenter, “This can’t be a thigh bone, can it?” Others have suggested this find is merely a product of the brain’s tendency to spot patterns in otherwise random data.

In the Center of the Lagoon Nebula — “The center of the Lagoon Nebula is a whirlwind of spectacular star formation. Visible near the image center, at least two long funnel-shaped clouds, each roughly half a light-year long, have been formed by extreme stellar winds and intense energetic starlight. The tremendously bright nearby star, Hershel 36, lights the area. Walls of dust hide and redden other hot young stars. As energy from these stars pours into the cool dust and gas, large temperature differences in adjoining regions can be created generating shearing winds which may cause the funnels. This picture, spanning about 5 light years, combines images taken by the orbiting Hubble Space Telescope. The Lagoon Nebula, also known as M8, lies about 5,000 light years distant toward the constellation of Sagittarius.” (Image credit: Hubble Legacy Archive, @NASA, ESA - Processing & Licence: Judy Schmidt) 💫 #universe #nature #cosmos #stars #sky #beautiful #lagoonnebula #nasa #milkyway #galaxy #nebula #amazing #beauty #science #hubble #space #telescope #astronomy #astrophotography
