  This fluffy ball contains the story of the universe The ghost of a supernova looks like a ball of cotton candy.Last week, NASA released the latest image of Tycho's supernova remnant (also called "Tycho"). The photo, taken by the Chandra X-Ray Observatory, looks a bit like an opalescent dandelion.

A super Typhoon called Halong is raging above the waters of the western tropical Pacific, with satellite imagery estimating its winds are tearing at speeds close to 305km/h.

The typhoon is one of the strongest storm observed since satellite coverage began in the 1970s, reports the Weather Network.

Waves near its centre will reach up to 12 metres high.

Luckily, the superstorm is not forecast to hit land and will begin to weaken over the next three days, according to the Weather Network.

Ronaldo storms down Juventus tunnel after being substituted for second time in a week

  Ronaldo storms down Juventus tunnel after being substituted for second time in a week Cristiano Ronaldo was substituted in the 55th minute during Juventus' Serie A clash with AC Milan on Sunday, with the 34-year-old heading straight down the tunnel after being replaced.  Reports from Italy also suggest Ronaldo would go on to leave the stadium three minutes before the end of the match.

To judge the strength of storms like Halong, forecasters use satellite data.

The data uses a process called the Advanced Dvorak Technique (ADT) which takes visible and infrared satellite images and compares them with cloud patterns already on record.

ADT offers a "best guess" at what a storm's strength will be.

Using this process, forecasters have placed Halong at a score of 7.9 reports the Weather Network.

Hurricane Dorian, which decimated the Bahamas in August, maxed out at 6.4.

Halong is the seventh super typhoon to form in the west Pacific this year, reports The Weather Network.

While the storm will not touch land, it's expected to impact weather conditions across Canada, bringing cold weather and snow.


Climate change is 'cracking open a nuclear tomb' .
A concrete tomb containing more than three million cubic feet of nuclear waste is reportedly cracking under the strains of climate change. Officially known as the Runit Dome, the structure holds the radioactive waste produced by the 67 nuclear bombs which were detonated on the Marshall Islands between 1946 and 1958.According to an investigation by the Los Angeles Times, the US government also conducted a dozen biological weapons tests on the islands before mixing the lethal debris and soil with concrete and burying it in the dome.
