  • Analysis Of Gamma-Ray Bursts

    They arise from the core collapse of massive stars which reside in regions of space experiencing new and active star formation (Savaglio, 2013) and as they are intensely luminous and high in both gamma-ray emission and multi-wavelength afterglow their rate is relative to the star formation rate (Gehrels & Meszaros 2012). However, the core collapse from a supernova explosion from the death of a star that results in the formation of a neutron star is not powerful to create or explain LGRBs. Instead, a LGRB can only be explained as arising when an ultra-energetic supernova becomes a hypernova and creates a black hole that consumes matter so immediately that it releases a substantial amount of energy of the matter which is not consumed (Bennett et al., 2014). The fundamental physics of this collapse of a star and was first proposed and developed by University of California physicist Dr. Stanford Woosley and his Collapsar Model remains the leading explanation for LGRBs today (Taboada,…

  • Astronomy: The Evolution Of Stars

    I look up to the sky and see millions of stars, and I wonder to myself. What makes them light up so bright, and what makes them a star? What does it take to create a star; they just don’t pop out and shine bright. I want to know the process, and how long it takes for a star to be born. I am also curious to know if the star can die. I plan on finding the answer. I believe that they are created by gases and that they die when they use up all of their gases. Stars have had an impact in our…

  • H-R Diagram Lab: Plotting The Star

    H-R Diagram Lab-Plotting the Stars Part I: Introduction 1) One method scientists use to measure the distance of the star is called parallax. Parallax shift is when closer stars shift positions against the farthest stars. In order for astronomers to measure that distance, they measure the distance of the shift, also considering the diameter of the Erath’s orbit. Then the angle of the parallax is measured. The smaller the angle of the parallax shift is, the farther away the star is from the…

  • Narrative Essay About Supernova

    Supernova On this hot day in February, I am almost completely sure that I am the only sixteen year old to be sitting in their living room and listening to the radio. The president told the country that we should tune in on the radio at nine o’clock tonight. “MOM…..DAD….IT’S TIME!” I yell as loud as I can. I think that mother and Father are keeping stuff from me. Sometimes in the middle of the night I wake up to them arguing about how mother thinks that Father should stop going to see his…

  • Messier Galaxy Research Paper

    in galaxies. In fact, a dual nucleus is starting to appear in the nearby Andromeda galaxy. What a dual nucleus is; is a core that does not have two black holes in its center, but one giant black hole that has a ring of stars orbiting it, giving off the appearance of two black holes. The double nucleus of M83 may be explained by a merger with a smaller galaxy that occurred in the distant past. The second nucleus may be the remnant core of the other galaxy that was absorbed by the larger M83. The…

  • Star Formations: The Formation Of Stars

    This is known as the “baby” star. This is the part of a stars life before they make it into the main sequence, the stage where our sun is currently in. The young star can be stuck in this stage for as many years as 100,000 or more ; it all depends on how big the star is. The protostar starts forming when colossal clouds of frigid molecular hydrogen and helium collapse because of conjoint gravity. The spark of the collapse could have been caused by a galaxy collision, or the shockwave of a…

  • Beta-Meow 3: A Short Story

    Fortunately, the Barkonians had not already discovered the Furballs plan to take over the trade routes so they sent him to Hypernova; a group of bounty hunters who occupied the entire solar system of Hyperforce x. Hyperforce x as created when the massive star Helios 5 went supernova and turned the planets in its solar system to pure metal rendering them lifeless. Then Hypernova harvested the metal to build the massive ships the Supernova and the Thunderstruck, which have a powerful gravity and…

  • Dmitri Mendeleev's Creation Of Elements In Our Universe

    The methods and theories that will be summarised are how the Big Bang theory had created the very first and lightest elements in our universe, and also how red giants have contributed to creating more elements such as carbon, nitrogen and oxygen whilst the supernovas had contributed to creating elements heavier than iron such as Uranium and Gold. Another major theory that can be summarised from the report is that Dmitri Mendeleev had made himself a major breakthrough with his discovery of the…

  • Earth Is A Beautiful Planet Essay

    special. Actually, the fact that Earth has life at all already makes it unique! Earth is the only known planet that can support life (for now at least). Astronomers have been studying deep space looking for another planet with any life at all, but the technology isn’t advanced enough to know whether or not they have found one in their many candidates! Although there are people who disagree, there is evidence that shows there must be another planet like Earth in our universe, or at least another…
