The last breath of a star.

The weak and ephemeral glow that emanates from the planetary nebula ESO 577-24 remains for a very short time, around 10,000 years, a blink of an eye in astronomical terms. ESO's Very Large Telescope (VLT) captured this bubble of bright ionized gas: the last breath of the dying star whose remains after the explosion are visible in the center of this image. As the gaseous layer of this planetary nebula expands and grows, going out, it will slowly disappear until we stop seeing it. This impressive planetary nebula was captured by one of the most versatile instruments of the VLT, FORS2. The instrument captured the bright central star, Abell 36, as well as the surrounding planetary nebula. The red and blue parts of this image correspond to the emission in red and blue wavelengths, respectively. In this image we can also see an object much closer to us: an asteroid, wandering through the field of vision, has left a faint trace (below and to the left of the central star). And in the distance, behind the nebula, you can see a brilliant collection of background galaxies. Credit: ESO.

A new analysis of data gathered by the Apollo missions confirms that tidal stress – the gravitational pull of the moon on the Earth and of the Earth on the moon – is responsible for causing deep moonquakes, the lunar equivalent of earthquakes.

Revealing the black hole at the heart of the galaxy - Including the powerful ALMA into an array of telescopes for the first time, astronomers have found that the emission from the supermassive black hole Sagittarius A* at the center of the galaxy comes from a smaller region than previously thought. This may indicate that a radio jet from Sagittarius A* is pointed almost directly toward us. The paper, led by the Nijmegen Ph.D. student Sara Issaoun, is published in The Astrophysical Journal.

WATCH: Trump marks MLK day with memorial visit
Politics Jan 21, 2019 4:49 PM EST
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump paid a brief visit to the Martin Luther King Jr. memorial in Washington on the holiday honoring the civil rights leader.
Trump was joined by Vice President Mike Pence on a frigid and windy day. The two laid a wreath at the foot of the memorial, then held a brief moment of silence.
Trump told reporters as he departed that it was a “great day” and a “beautiful day,” but did not respond to questions about the partial government shutdown, now in its 31st day.
The visit lasted less than two minutes.
Trump had been criticized earlier in the day by the Rev. Al Sharpton, who said it was “an insult to the American people” that the White House was not commemorating the holiday with an event.
The president’s memorial visit had not been listed on his public schedule and reporters traveling with him were not informed of Trump’s destination until they arrived.
Trump tweeted earlier: “Today we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. for standing up for the self-evident truth Americans hold so dear, that no matter what the color of our skin or the place of our birth, we are all created equal by God.”
Associated Press writer Brian Slodysko contributed to this report.

The speed of light is torturously slow, and these 3 simple animations by a scientist at NASA prove it

Light speed is the fastest that any material object can travel through space. That is, of course, barring the existence of theoretical shortcuts in the fabric of space called wormholes (and the ability to go through them without being destroyed).

Today in Apple history: Super Bowl Mac ad airs against the odds - January 22, 1984: Apple’s stunning “1984” commercial for the Macintosh 128K airs on CBS during the third quarter of Super Bowl XVIII. Probably the most famous TV ad for a computer in history, the commercial is directed by Alien and Blade Runner director Ridley Scott. It very nearly didn’t air, though. Just like many Apple […] (via Cult of Mac - Tech and culture through an Apple lens)

An article published in "The Astrophysical Journal" reports a precise measurement of the duration of the day on the planet Saturn. The lack of a solid surface with reference points and a magnetic field with unusual characteristics prevented precise measurements, but now a team of researchers led by Christopher Mankovich of the University of California, Santa Cruz, (UCSC) accomplished that feat by exploiting data collected by the Cassini space probe on the effects that the vibrations inside Saturn cause on the oscillation of its gravitational field and consequently also on the rings. The result is that the day on the planet was measured in 10 hours, 33 minutes and 38 seconds.
