🌍😯 For an astronaut looking out of the @iss windows, city lights are brighter than the stars. To tackle light pollution citizen scientists are urged to help map out the problem on their smartphones by identifying images of cities taken from space.

There are half a million high-resolution pictures of Earth at night in NASA’s Astronaut Photography of Earth archives. Most images in the archive are uncatalogued and do not have a location assigned to them.

play_circle_filled Supernova is an astronomical event that occurs during the final stages of the evolution of some stars, which is characterized by a very bright explosion.
For a few seconds, the brightness of the event can outshine entire billion-star galaxies. πŸŽ‡
On average, a supernova will occur about once every 50 years in a galaxy the size of the Milky Way ✨
Put another way, a star explodes every second or so somewhere in the universe, and some of those aren't too far from Earth
A star can go #supernova in one of two ways:
β€’ Type I supernova: star accumulates matter from a nearby neighbor until a runaway nuclear reaction ignites.
β€’ Type II supernova: star runs out of nuclear fuel and collapses under its own gravity.

Alexei Leonov, who became the first human to walk in space in 1965, died on Friday at the age of 85 after a long illness, Russia's TASS news agency reported.

Though less well known internationally than Yuri Gagarin, the first man in space, Leonov was a household name in his native Russia and will be remembered in particular for his role in the 1965 Voskhod-2 mission.

During that flight, one of two he made into space in his career, Leonov became the first human to conduct a space walk, an episode that lasted 12 minutes and 9 seconds..

#Science!
Imagine slow-motion fireworks that started exploding 170 years ago and are still continuing. πŸŽ† πŸŽ† πŸŽ† ⁣

This type of firework is not launched into Earth's atmosphere, but rather into space by a doomed super-massive star, called Eta Carinae. In this view from the @NASAHubble Space Telescope, which includes ultraviolet light, we see the star's hot, expanding gases glowing in red, white and blue.

Fantastic Sharp Shot! πŸŒ“
The Moon is moving approximately 3.8 cm away from our planet every year. It is estimated that it will continue to do so for around 50 billion years. By the time that happens, the Moon will be taking around 47 days to orbit the Earth instead of the current 27.3 days.

Our Cosmic Neighbour. The Andromeda Galaxy πŸŒ€
β€œThe super massive Andromeda Galaxy sits over 2 million light years from us yet still appears 6 times larger then the moon to us visually. Holding a trillion stars and billions of planets this galaxy spans 260,000 Light years across. Each light year is 5.8 trillion miles wide... so yeah, you get the point, it’s pretty big (try writing that number out). If you have the chance to go out to any dark site on a somewhat moonless night you can see it with your eyes. Oh and it’s barreling towards Earth at 250,000 MPH. That speed would get you from Earth to our Moon in about an hour.  Stay calm though, we have a few billion years before it arrives.”
