A new space picture shows brilliant blue stars shining from the gloom of a cosmic dust cloud called Lupus 3. The cosmic light show is taking place about 600 light-years from Earth, and shows how young stars are born from clumps of gas and dust.

The image is based on data from two European Southern Observatory (ESO) telescopes in Chile: the VLT Survey Telescope at Paranal Observatory, and the MPG/ESO 2.2-meter telescope at La Silla. In a statement, ESO said the new image is "the most detailed image taken so far of this region." [The Fabulous Lives of Nebulas]

Simulation provides black hole breakthrough

  Simulation provides black hole breakthrough The most detailed simulation of the universe ever created has provided a breakthrough revealing how the most powerful and mysterious forces interact on an enormous scale. Scientists said the detail and scale provided by the simulation enabled them to watch how galaxies formed, evolved and grew while also nursing the creation of new stars.Dr Shy Genel, at the New York-based Flatiron Institute's Centre for Computational Astrophysics (CCA), said: "When we observe galaxies using a telescope, we can only measure certain quantities."But "with the simulation, we can track all the properties for all these galaxies.

Young stars shine in the surroundings of the Lupus 3 star nursery . Lupus 3 : Stars Burst Into Life From Misshapen Snake Nebula - koreandramaku.net. Their stellar winds and radiation scrubbed the nearby area clean of dust and gas, letting their brilliant light poke through.

Lupus 3 is an example of a nebula, a huge region of dust and gas that can sometimes be hundreds of light-years long. While some nebulas are very bright, Lupus 3 is an example of a "dark" nebula — a situation in which dust blocks the light of the objects within it.

"They [dark nebulas] are also known as absorption nebulae, because they are made up of cold, dense particles of dust that absorb and scatter light as it passes through the cloud," ESO representatives said in the statement.

Lupus 3, which looks a bit like a snake, is a powerhouse for star formation, just like many nebulas. Within the nebula are young stars and protostars — gas in the process of collapsing to form a star's core.

Stars often form when a gravitational influence (such as a passing star) creates a disturbance in the nebula. Denser parts of the nebula condense and contract due to gravity, warming up and increasing the pressure inside the dust and gas. In the densest parts of the nebula, gravity can be strong enough to form protostars.

"Early in their lives, the radiation they emitted was largely blocked by the thick veil of their host nebula, visible only to telescopes at infrared and radio wavelengths," ESO representatives said. "But as they grew hotter and brighter, their intense radiation and strong stellar winds swept the surrounding areas clear of gas and dust, allowing them to emerge gloriously from their gloomy nursery to shine brightly."

The stars in the image, ESO noted, are too young to shine from nuclear fusion, the process that powers stars like our sun. The bright light instead comes from the cores of the young stars contracting as gravitational energy converts into heat.

Famous examples of dark nebulas include the Coalsack Nebula (in the constellation Crux, visible from the Southern Hemisphere) and the Great Rift (between the constellations Cygnus and Aquila in northern skies). Both of these dark nebulas are visible with the naked eye, ESO noted. Lupus 3, however, is one of the closest dark nebulas to Earth, and for this reason, astronomers often study it to better understand how star formation works.

Hardwick hopes to see Dusty fly in AFL .
One area where Damien Hardwick thinks Dustin Martin can improve on last year's stellar season in flying for marks. Also on Tuesday, Hardwick said young star Daniel Rioli had had a medical plate removed as he continued to recover from his serious AFL grand final injury.Rioli had the operation on his foot last week and coach Damien Hardwick said the small forward continued to make good progress.While there has been speculation about Rioli being available for round one, the Tigers will take no risks with his comeback.
