La segunda infografía me parece aún más interesante, ya que nos muestra en qué parte de la galaxia están los 1.800 exoplanetas identificados hasta ahora y los casi 5.000 sospechosos. Los primeros que detectamos se situarían en la esfera anaranjada alrededor de nuestra posición y los que está catalogando el telescopio espacial Kepler si situarían en el cono naranja que se dirige hacia la parte superior. En la parte de la derecha se situarían aquellos que los científicos intentan identificar…

This illustration shows a cool star, called W1906+40, marked by a raging storm near one of its poles. The storm is thought to be similar to the Great Red Spot on Jupiter. Scientists discovered it using NASA's Kepler and Spitzer space telescopes.

Stars Shoot Jets in Cosmic Playground | Dozens of newborn stars sprouting jets from their dusty cocoons have been spotted in images from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope. In this view showing a portion of sky near Canis Major, infrared data from Spitzer are green and blue, while longer-wavelength infrared light from NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) are red.

Spitzer Space Telescope Spots Huge Asteroid Collision The suspected impact occurred near the star NGC 2547-ID8, which is about 1,200 light-years away in the constellation Vela. The star is fairly young at only 35 million years old, and observations of dust accumulation hint at the possibility that planetary formation is underway.

Spitzer Stares into the Heart of New Supernova in M82: One of the closest supernovas to go off in the last few decades is putting on a good show for telescopes on the ground and in space.

What kind of star died on October 9, 1604? On that day, several observers spotted a supernova that was as bright as Mars. German astronomer Johannes Kepler was so taken with the sight that he wrote a book about it. Kepler’s supernova is thought to be the most recent star to explode in our Milky Way galaxy. Astronomers combined the forces of the Hubble, Spitzer Space Telescope, and the Chandra X-ray Observatory to see if they could identify the type of star that produced the explosion; they…

Like scenes from DC Comics' The Flash, rumors persist about particle accelerators spawning Earth-ending disasters, but there are concrete reasons why physicists in the real universe aren't losing any sleep.
