New Study Unveils Fascinating Details About Cosmic Dust
((VO-Space))??A new study is giving astronomers new insights into how dust moves through space.????((VO-SOFIA Video))??The study, recently published in the Royal Astronomical Society, looked at Supernova 1987A, which was one of the brightest seen in 400 years.
????((VO-SOFIA Video))??Scientists have described a Supernova explosion as one of the brightest and most powerful forces in the universe that generally destroy most dust particles in its path.
New video from NASA’s SOFIA telescope shows that may not always be the case.????((VO-Particles in Space))??Scientists reportedly found more than 10 times the dust they anticipated while researching Supernova 1987A.
The space agency says that dust could be from the growth of existing particles.????((VO-Space))??A lead author told NASA, “It formed from the heavy elements created in the core of the dead star.
But the SOFIA observations tell us something new about a completely unexpected dust population.”????((VO-James Webb Pic))??According to Fox News, NASA plans to observe cosmic dust moving forward using its James Webb Space Telescope.??
