Astrophotography drives many amateur teens and space enthusiasts to explore the vast heavens (celestial bodies). Surprisingly, astrophotography has gained a lot of attention even though it requires good knowledge of simulation — long time exposure. Space images that we get to see on the internet (via space agencies) are mostly artistic illustrations developed by quite professionals manpower following the highest degree of accuracy as the space is full of dust. Stellar photography makes significant contributions to the study of cosmology and Astrophysics. Chile’s Very Large Telescope (VLT), the Hubble Space Telescope, and several other Solar Orbiter have been an indispensable resource for astrophotographers. 2020 marked Hubble’s 30th anniversary in space. Despite the coronavirus outbreak, 2020 has been incredibly one of the major years for astronomical events like; the great conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn — also known as Christmas star, the first-ever spectacular and clear image of the sun, and many more else.
Here are some of the best space photos of 2020 that facilitate Science to approach space exploration.
If we could spread life across the whole/entire Milky way galaxy, then all the extinction of species by humans would be fair enough to forgive. Imagine a separate habitable planet for a set of animals and birds with appropriate ecosystems. The idea is quite obvious — through genetic engineering — we may bring back most of the species, but it is quite troublesome to live in harmony with all the animals and bacterias. Draw your views on this idea. This intellectual idea of space exploration and sustainability of species has been speculated by Marteen Heskamp. You can find him here.
