Outstanding Time-Lapse of a Stellar Explosion From Hubble | IFLScience

Outstanding Time-Lapse of a Stellar Explosion From Hubble | IFLScience | Astronomy food for dreams | Scoop.it
In January 2002, astronomers discovered a massive explosion coming from V838 Monocerotis. They initially thought they were witnessing a supernova, but after the initial flash of light began to dim (as expected), it began to brighten again in infrared wavelengths at the beginning of March. After that brightening faded, another one happened in April.

AMAZING!!!

Engineers design 'living materials': Hybrid materials combine bacterial cells with nonliving elements that emit light

Engineers design 'living materials': Hybrid materials combine bacterial cells with nonliving elements that emit light | Astronomy food for dreams | Scoop.it
Inspired by natural materials such as bone -- a matrix of minerals and other substances, including living cells -- engineers have coaxed bacterial cells to produce biofilms that can incorporate nonliving materials, such as gold nanoparticles and quantum dots. These "living materials" combine the advantages of live cells, which respond to their environment, produce complex biological molecules, and span multiple length scales, with the benefits of nonliving materials, which add functions such as conducting electricity or emitting light.
