Out There Science Videos - New York Times

My favorite Out There Science Videos from The New York Times Science.
Check out the videos below:

May. 28, 2014 | 2:16

Recently Hubble Space Telescope measurements have confirmed that the Milky Way will collide with a sibling galaxy known as the Andromeda nebula in about two billion years.

Recently astronomers have used a cosmic web imager to visualize simulations of dark matter, showing how the large scale structure of the universe grows and the nests in which galaxies are hatched.

The sun is slowly rising over Saturn’s North Pole, exposing an immense six-sided hurricane. The storm, big enough to swallow four Earths, was first spotted by the Voyager missions in the early 1980s.

Light from exploding stars can live on in the form of echoes, rippling across space and illuminating clouds of dust and gas that might otherwise be invisible.

Supercomputer simulations show the moment when a pair of neutron stars collide, collapse into a black hole and tear themselves out of the visible universe.

Neptune’s moon Triton was the last stop on Voyager 2’s tour of the outer planets. It is one of the coldest objects in the solar system and a big brother of Pluto, which NASA will visit next year.

Dec. 18, 2014 | 2:49
In galactic nurseries like the Orion Nebula, clouds of gas and dust mingle, birthing new stars and planetary systems. The ALMA radio telescope made a recent observation of possible planets being born.

Though it is sedate in comparison with other stars, our sun is a volatile neighbor, a thermonuclear furnace fueling spectacular storms that send high-energy particles and radiation far out into space.

Mar. 5, 2015 | 2:32
A century after Albert Einstein proposed that gravity could bend light, astronomers now rely on galaxies or even clusters of galaxies to magnify distant stars.

Apr. 2, 2015 | 3:05
The International Space Station is as far as humans go in space these days, but it is at just the right distance to capture astonishing images of Earth.

Apr. 24, 2015 | 3:02
After 25 years, the Hubble Space Telescope is still surprising us. Hubble has been called the most important advance in astronomy since Galileo, and its greatest discoveries might still be ahead.

Jun. 8, 2015 | 2:31
Astronomers hope the Event Horizon Telescope, a synchronized network of radio antennas as large as the Earth, will take the first ever picture of a black hole, an abyss so deep no light can escape.

Jul. 6, 2015 | 13:21
On July 14, 2015, the New Horizons spacecraft will zip past Pluto and its five known moons. Nobody really knows what it will find.

Oct. 28, 2015 | 9:48
After 11 years orbiting Saturn, NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has changed our understanding of liquid water in the outer solar system.

Nov. 5, 2015 | 2:31
Readings from NASA’s Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution mission, or Maven, show how the atmosphere of Mars is being removed by particles from the sun.

Jan. 20, 2016 | 1:13
An animation explains the case for the presence of a ninth planet-size object deep in the solar system, beyond the orbit of Neptune.

Feb. 11, 2016 | 4:36
About a hundred years ago, Einstein predicted the existence of gravitational waves, but until now, they were undetectable.

May. 10, 2016 | 0:23
Physicists at NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory captured a time-lapse video using two instruments to filter the image of the sun and its rays as Mercury passed by it on Monday.

July 4, 2016 | 3:51
NASA’s Juno spacecraft arrived to study Jupiter after a trip of nearly two billion miles.

September 5, 2016 | 3:30
NASA’s Osiris-Rex spacecraft will hunt down an asteroid and return a sample to Earth.

Eclipsing the Sun

Voyager’s 40th Anniversary

Cassini Burns Into Saturn

Detecting a Kilonova Explosion

A Glimpse of Oumuamua

How NASA’s TESS Spacecraft Will Hunt Exoplanets

InSight Will Plumb the Depths of Mars | 3:14

Touching the Sun | 3:45

Oct. 30, 2018 | 4:17
Astronomers are probing the edge of Sagittarius A*, the supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy.
