Animation showing the evolution of the supernova remnant over time until today's view. Artist's illustration of how a supernova remnant is born. The animation starts with the progenitor of Tycho Brahe's supernova of the year 1572. Following a titanic thermonuclear blast, which has blown apart a white dwarf star, material is ejected into interstellar space at an incredibly high velocity of up to 30,000 kilometres per second or one tenth of the speed of light! Over the last 4 centuries the debris have expanded to a diameter of more than 20 light years. Million degree hot gas as well as heated dust particles are seen in an composite image of the remnant today, which has been obtained with the Chandra and Spitzer Space Telescopes and the Calar Alto observatory. This real image concludes the animation. Credit and copyright: Max-Planck-Institut für Astronomie (Ors Hunor Detre, Oliver Krause) http://www.mpia.de/IRSPACE/Tycho_release

One time fellow traveller welcome to the ministry of tspace time and the church of great stdy , I am the very reverend Ordo mundi humble servant of universe, maintainer of the laws of physic and student of the on ething greater than I am. great googly moogly I like to begin this weeks saying of stuff with a reading from the book of Newton ..change be upon him...a great sage of the astronomers who gave us the lwas of motion so that we may be free from ignorance and live not as morons....And Isacc for that was also his name did set down upon the firmamnet the first law of motion and This law is known as the law of inertia. "A body continues to maintain its state of rest or of uniform motion unless acted upon by an external unbalanced force.. aint it so ...praise the Laws, let me hear ya say praise the laws..can I get a we know ..we know... yes we do join me now and fill your lungs with a mix of gases from our atmosphere for our hymn today ..Morons are hoping, Morons are hoping, God is the answer to all the questions and mysteries too astronmers study and then know the answers you can all join us and know them too Theer really is no god , at least not a person you are not special hes not watching you join us if you want to know the answers join us and be an astronomer too Mine is the starlight, mine is the knowing Born of the one light, Universe made Praise with elation, astronomers who have studied universe and become sage Yes morons are hoping , and hope is desperate and will not feed you nor save you from ignorance nor form in your brain the knowing of anything . But morons ar ehappy ,,happy happy happyy ...and ignorance for many peole is bliss and even if it isnt , some mumbo jumbo vodoo nutta will come along and tell them ..You could be happy , you and you r petty , cosmically insignificant life, could be filled with happines and you personally could experiance a deep fullfullment in a spiritual way that only I and my voodoo bretheren can tell you all about .. just mumble the mumbo after me and you selfish personal happiness needs will be taken care of by god , who even tho he created universe and is currently manifesting his will over infinite time and all things , is personnalluy interested din your salvation, and your happness yes he is ,cos its all about you ..you wonderfully special person you let me hear you say vodooo..voodoo...its voodoo , taking you away from the road , stealling you from the path of study and making you a navel gazing twat, more concerned with ya own smugg self satifaction than doing or knowing anything usefull .. Astronomers may be happy or may not be happy , and your happiness or lack of it may influence universe in many ways ..but I can asure you it will not change the sacred facts , not alter the laws of physics and no amount of happiness will yield or prevent a unified theory of all energy and mass we see , from being discovered..So let us not dwell in the selfish domain of personal fullfillment , there is nothing to saveyou from but ignornce and nobody is listening to yo prayer s but you , so get up of ya knees and come study...remeber many of our revered forebears , galileo , copernicus, kepler, gave up their lives , there comforts their safety and yea even their happiness , to know more about universe than was know already...Ahem ...let us know OH Universe that is not happy or sad at our coming or going tho we may be as we know we will come and go OH Universe that is not fullfilled by our motions or actions tho we may think upon them and guage them for ourselves OH Universe that is not concerned with our well being , or survival tho we may take stock of them to continue our study OH Universe that cares not for our good deeds or bad so we may be without like or dislike for them also OH Universe that is not happy or sad at our coming or going Reveal the facts , and the laws to us the astronomers so we may deal with the morons and ignorant savages bringing them with us on the etrnal road of infinite study Spacetime Well thanks for listening , dont forget to vist our website theastronomers.org and help us on our sacred quest to rid the world of ignorance, spread the facts and buy the planet ..remember this is your one time , this is the time of choice , this is the middle of time , here we are and here is where its at..great googly moogly..

In his post as Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge University, he counts Sir Isaac Newton (1642--1727) amongst his predecessors. And he was born 300 years to the day after the avant-garde astronomer, Galileo Galilei (1564--1642). Following a devastating diagnosis of motor neurone disease in 1963, Hawking was given two years to live. Yet 44 years later, he still hopes to solve the big problem of physics, that of unifying quantum mechanics and Einstein's theory of relativity. Doing so will produce a set of laws that will explain everything in the universe, including how it all began - a breakthrough aptly dubbed the 'Theory of Everything'. Hawking felt that he was on the brink of this breakthrough a long time ago. When he published his surprising best-seller 'A Brief History of Time' in 1988, he expressed a certainty that the Theory of Everything was imminent. However, twenty years later, it still eludes Hawking and the scientific community. Frustratingly, Hawking's condition is worsening. His only way of communicating now is through one cheek muscle. Will he find the theory before it is too late? This two-episode documentary from the UK's Channel 4 is both a portrait of Hawking and an attempt to explain his work to non-scientific types. It conveys the basics of quantum mechanics and the theory of relativity in an easy-to-understand manner and does very well to acquaint viewers with Hawking's extraordinary life and character. A thoroughly enjoyable, inspiring and enlightening series!
An episode of "Great Moments in Science and Technology"
http://slooh.com This video looks at Galileo's important work with the first telescope and includes an overview of the SLOOH robotic telescopes. Robotic telescopes are accessed and controlled using the Internet an incredible evolution of technology from Galileo's first telescopes
Basically my back up in-case my DVD don't work... history and information on Aristotle, discusses childhood, adolescence, astronomy, biology, and subject area.
Thanks to modern technology, today's youngsters grow up knowing more about our sun, planets, and solar system than all the famous philosopher/scientists in history -- Archimedes, Aristotle, Democritus, Copernicus, Galileo, Sir Isaac Newton. NASA allows us to take a close look at some of our most fascinating neighbors, from the sun to the nine known planets, and beyond to star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies. ... nasa sun planets venus mercury earth mars saturn jupiter star galaxy nebula ...
This is the latest incarnation of the HDF video. The narration has been edited to include research from a paper in Physical Review Letters (2004) which puts the size of the universe at 46.5 billion light years, not 78 billion as I originally stated. In the video narration, I round that value up to 47 billion light years.
