Stunning Space Images (Part 2)

Don't have any pics but the recently witnessed neutron star collision, which created gold, platinum and other heavy elements, I found very fascinating.
It occurred 300 million light years away so we are now only witnessing an event that occurred 300 million years ago. It's mind boggling

Would love to see pics of that. Fascinating stuff. It means that at some point in the future, something like this could happen directly in our path. Meaning that what obliterates our galaxy could have already happened; just hasn't reached us yet.

Yeah it's a bit mad Noah !
Neutron star collisions also produce powerful Gamma Rays which are dangerous to life.
This recently observed event was so far away that the Gamma Rays are harmless, but a closer event could pose a danger to Earth and there's nothing we could do about it.

I saw a video, albeit animation, of what happens when too galaxies move too close to each other. I get fascinated by how big the universe actually is. Makes us mere mortals here on earth so insignificant.

Not sure this qualifies exactly. Perhaps they should've delayed the big reveal until they had a clearer image and not this blurry goatse doughnut.

Apparently it is six thousand million times bigger than our sun and if it swallowed it up it would reduce it to the size of a grape.

Bur if they’d waited for a clear image, there’d be a “fake moon landing” brigade. It’s cool and nice. Makes a change that this is on the bbc homepage rather than politics.

Oh this image does indeed qualify Thomas.

The first time the event horizon of a black hole has ever been directly imaged. It's stunning and quite incredible. This is the type of image astronomers have dreamt of for decades.

They still haven't really, technically, taken a picture of a Black hole though, have they..? They've taken a picture of the gas disk surrounding a really big black hole at an impressive distance, it has to be said. But still, not an ctual picture of a black hole.. I'll be impressed when they photograph the singularity..

Bit hard to see a black hole, in the pitch dark and a good rim gives it away.

And 54 million light years from Earth.
The images we are seeing now are from 54 million years ago. It makes the mind boggle.

It was only photographed recently, did we have technology that far back?

I loved the newspaper headlines describing it as a close-up photo!
