Here’s the 2015 update.
2015 marked the Hubble Space Telescope’s 25th anniversary. To celebrate, they published a number of spectacular images. We’ll see:
- Caverns carved out of dust by a new star in the Orion Nebula
- The Veil Nebula move
- Through the Eagle Nebula
- A spectacular view of the center of our galaxy
- Andromeda galaxy disk details like we’ve never seen them before
- A lonely galaxy on the edge of our Local Void
- Hanny’s Voorwerp one of the strangest objects ever seen
We’ll also update Gaia’s progress, and take a look at Laniakea – a new way to identify superclusters.
The LHC at CERN reopened in 2015 after a two year upgrade.
Both CERN and Hubble touched on Dark Matter over the past year, so we’ll examine the evidence for Dark Matter and discuss a few of the possibilities for what this mysterious material might be.
I trust you’ll find it interesting and informative.
We’ll begin inside the Milky Way.
