Clearly understanding how Type Ia supernovae work is of fundamental importance in the quest of understanding how the Universe works as astronomical distances
can be measured which are crucial to understanding the fate of the Universe," he added.
Measuring astronomical distances
depends on certain heavenly objects, believed to shine with consistent intensity wherever they exist.
Background information on massive stars and medium stars and activities with subjects such as star life, constellation shapes, nebula terminology, astronomical distances
, and pulsars is included.
Celestron's Astronomy for Beginners SkyTour card uses the SkyScout to guide users through an interactive tour of the night sky with lessons that address an array of astronomical topics including: a detailed tutorial and tour of the planets, stars, galaxies, clusters, nebulae, constellations, and asterisms that are easily viewed in the night sky; a guide to astronomical distances
between celestial objects; lessons in star-hopping and navigation; an in-depth look at the colors and types of stars; a study of celestial movement and the phases of the moon.
Washington, June 9 (ANI): Radio astronomers have directly measured the distance to a faraway galaxy, providing a valuable "yardstick" for calibrating large astronomical distances
and demonstrating a vital method that could help determine the elusive nature of the mysterious Dark Energy that pervades the Universe.
