This animation shows how a black hole may have formed in SN 1979C. The collapse of a massive star is shown, after it has exhausted its fuel. A flash of light from a shock breaking through the surface of the star is then shown, followed by a powerful supernova explosion. The view then zooms into the center of the explosion.

The designers of this jet believe that within 15-20 years supersonic jets will revolutionize the travel for business purposes. This jet will enable to fly to another continent and back in one day with complete comfort and most effective use of work time.
This artist’s rendering shows a simulation of a collision between the Moon and a companion moon, four percent of the lunar mass, about four billion years ago. Earth once had a second moon, until it smacked into its big sister, some astronomers now theorise. Credit: M. Jutzi and E. Asphaug, Nature.
An image combining orbital imagery with 3-D modeling shows flows that appear in spring and summer on a slope inside Mars’ Newton crater. Sequences of observations recording the seasonal changes at this site and a few others with similar flows might be evidence of salty liquid water active on Mars today.
