the golden record images -Famous "Voyager 1" spacecraft was launched by NASA on September 5, 1977. Despite its primary missions (to study the outer Solar System and interstellar medium) the spacecraft had another – to send a message to other life forms in the universe.

The Triangulum Emission Nebula - NGC 604Located 2.7 million light-years away in the constellation Triangulum lies the massive nebula known as NGC 604. Though such nebulae are common in galaxies, this one is particularly large, nearly 1,500 light-years across, and it dominates a portion of galaxy M33’s spiral arm. Nebula NGC 604 is also an area of intense star formation. At the heart of the nebula there are over 200 hot stars, most are more massive than our Sun with the largest being up...

Experiment examining a SLICE of the interstellar medium: (Phys.org)—When you look up at the stars at night, the space between stars looks empty. But, yes there is something there. It's called the interstellar medium. An experiment from the University of Colorado will fly on a NASA suborbital sounding rocket from the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico on December 15 to study this space between the stars.

Exploration of the Outer Heliosphere and the Local Interstellar Medium: A Workshop Report

The Interstellar Medium: Crossing the Cosmic Void Humanity’s great leap into the space between the stars has, in a sense, already begun. NASA’s Voyager 1 probe broke through the sun’s magnetic bubble to touch the interstellar wind. Voyager 2 isn’t far behind. New Horizons shot past Pluto on its way to encounters with more distant dwarf worlds, the rubble at the solar […] The post The Interstellar Medium: Crossing the Cosmic Void appeared first on SciTech Daily . http://scite..
