How black holes are formed Black holes can be formed in many different ways. The most common way that a blackhole is formed is when two neutron stars over millions of years circle around each other and come together to form a black hole. What are black holes? Black holes are things that could potentially […]
NASA once said, “Friendly reminder: We’re just a small speck in a massive universe!” Have you ever stopped for a moment and pondered about this?

On July 12, 2022, NASA released the long-waited first set of full-color images taken by the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST)—the largest and most powerful space telescope ever built and launched into space. It marks a momentous day for science, beginning a new era in astronomy. As a recap, James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) was […]
Quasars are still an unsolved mystery from scientists. Are quasars real? They are similar to stars that “throw” radiologic (high-energy radiation) signals. Quasars were discovered in 1960. It is believed that they could be 18 million light years away from us. Their existence is found by their interaction/lighting with other things in the universe. It […]

By SpaceBee What are Stars? Stars are astrological objects, made of various gasses, like hydrogen or helium. Stars are held together by their own gravity. When stars die they supernova (Suddenly increasing their brightness due to an explosion, causing them to lose most of their mass). Stars often take millions of years to supernova. Many say a […]
After 25 years of development, the James Webb Space Telescope aboard an Ariane 5 rocket was launched into space from Europe’s Spaceport in French Guiana on December 25th, 2021. What an unprecedented breakthrough for astronomy! The James Webb Space Telescope, also referred to as Webb or JWST, is the largest, most complex, and powerful telescope […]
