Imagine what we will know tomorrow!  We use to think there was something called 'ETHER' surrounding us.  Now we can maybe put a name to it, atoms of space.

Astrophysicists launch ambitious assessment of galaxy formation simulations

Astrophysicists launch ambitious assessment of galaxy formation simulations | Science | Scoop.it

One of the most powerful tools for understanding the formation and evolution of galaxies has been the use of computer simulations—numerical models of astrophysical processes run on supercomputers and compared with astronomical observations. Getting computer simulations to produce realistic-looking galaxies has been a challenge, however, and different codes (simulation programs) produce inconsistent results.

See Jupiter at its best

See Jupiter at its best | Science | Scoop.it

Jupiter, largest of the planets, reaches maximum brilliance January 5. On that date, it lies at a point astronomers call opposition. As viewed from Earth, Jupiter lies directly opposite the Sun. On the 5th, Jupiter rises at sunset, sets at sunrise, and is visible in the sky all night.
