Black Holes and the High-Energy Universe
9. Black Holes and the High-Energy Universe
May 15, 2016
Astronomers are probing the high-energy cosmic frontier with a series of key missions: Fermi, Swift, Chandra, NuSTAR, and Hubble. Their goal: to find out how the universe works on a fundamental level. This video was inspired by a NASA event at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, where leading scientists delivered the latest news about black holes, supernovae, and gamma ray bursts.
Life: Destiny or Chance
8. Life: Destiny or Chance
June 1, 2015
Are the universe and its physical laws so fine-tuned that the rise of life is inevitable? Or is life a fluke, a lucky roll of cosmic dice? We look for the answer in the rise of two important components of life, dust and water.
Birth of a Black Hole
7. Birth of a Black Hole
June 1, 2015
It was one of the greatest mysteries in modern science: a series of brief but extremely bright flashes of ultra-high energy light coming from somewhere out in space. These gamma ray bursts were first spotted by spy satellites in the 1960s. It took three decades and a revolution in high-energy astronomy for scientists to figure out what they were.
When Will Time End?
6. When Will Time End?
June 1, 2015
The answer to this question may depend on whether Stephen Hawking was right in his theory that describes how black holes shed mass and eventually decay. Time is flying by on this busy, crowded planet as life changes and evolves from second to second. At the same time, the arc of the human lifespan is getting longer: 67 years is the global average, up from just 20 years in the Stone Age.
The Search for Earth-Like Planets
4. The Search for Earth-Like Planets
June 1, 2015
The latest from the planet-hunting frontier. Find out what we are learning about our place in the cosmos from the search for earth-like planets. This journey started tens of thousands of years ago, when humans began to fan out across the planet, following unknown pathways, crossing unmeasured distances. We traced coastlines, and sailed uncertain seas.
Birth of the Moon
2. Birth of the Moon
June 1, 2015
Scientists have been reconstructing the history of the moon by scouring its surface, mapping its mountains and craters, and probing its interior. What are they learning about our own planet's beginnings?
Supermassive Black Hole at the Center of the Galaxy
1. Supermassive Black Hole at the Center of the Galaxy
June 1, 2015
Feel the pull of the largest object in our galaxy, a supermassive black hole. Astronomers are discovering its properties by probing the stars and small black holes that are buzzing around it.
