Peering deep into the core of the Crab Nebula, this close-up image reveals the beating heart of one of the most historic and intensively studied remnants of a supernova, an exploding star. The inner region sends out clock-like pulses of radiation and tsunamis of charged particles embedded in magnetic fields.The neutron star at the very center of the Crab Nebula has about the same mass as the sun but compressed into an incredibly dense sphere that is only a few miles across. Spinning 30 times a s...

Our Canadian Astronauts Twelve people have been recruited by the Canadian Space Agency (or the National Research Council before us) over three different astronaut recruitment campaigns (1983, 1992 and 2009).  As shown in the image above, eight CSA astronauts have flown in space on 16 missions (our current astronauts, Jeremy Hansen and David Saint-Jacques, are also listed but have yet to fly). Quebec business man Guy Laliberté visited the International Space Station as a private explorer in 2009....

fromquarkstoquasars: The Death Stars of Orion: Oftentimes, we don’t take a moment to appreciate how utterly tame our sun is. It isn’t prone to spitting out cataclysmic solar flares or CMEs; the orbit our of planet remains steady (preventing Earth from being stuck in an proverbial battle between Jack Frost and a dragon) and, most of all, it isn’t neither hot enough or too bright for it to completely sterilize Earth’s surface. (Without these things, there would be no us) On the other end of the s...

The twin Voyager spacecraft, which launched in 1977, are our ambassadors to the rest of the Milky Way, destined to continue orbiting the center of our galaxy for billions of years after they stop communicating with Earth. On Aug. 25, 2012, Voyager 1 became the first human-made object to enter interstellar space, and Voyager 2 is expected to cross over in the next few years. At age 40, the Voyagers are the farthest and longest-operating spacecraft and still have plenty more to discover. This post...
