#photo of the day | the Space telescope

named after the famous astronomer Edwin Powell Hubble, in 27 years of its existence has seen a huge amount of life in the universe. Each photo can be safely printed out and hung on the wall in a beautiful frame. Another amazing photo taken by a telescope in the beginning of this month, captures the death stars, whose size is comparable with our Sun. After his death, the star turned into a beautiful planetary nebula OH 231.8+04.2, which NASA scientists because of the high sulfur content (the derivative of sulfide) was nicknamed "Rotten egg."

The Star, whose death depicted going through the same stages of their existence, which at the time waiting for the Sun. As you probably already know, our star at the moment is about midway through its life cycle (4.5 billion years). Around the age of 8.5 billion years the Sun will become subgiants, then in the 9.5 billion years a red giant, and then at 11 billion years will turn into a planetary nebula, similar to the one we see in NASA pictures.

The Dead star is at a distance of over 5000 light years from Earth in the constellation of the Stern. The outer layers of a star composed of gases and dust are emitted into the surrounding space with great speed — about a million miles an hour. To capture this stage of the evolution of stars to astronomers is a huge opportunity, as the passage of a star in a state of the nebula is very fast. Full planetary nebula from the remains of dead stars formed only a thousand years.
