The bright white object at lower left is the asteroid Dimorphos. It has a blue dust tail extending diagonally to the upper right. A cluster of blue dots surrounds the asteroid. These are boulders that were knocked off the asteroid when, on 26 September 2022, NASA deliberately slammed the half-tonne DART impactor spacecraft into the asteroid as a test of what it would take to deflect some future asteroid from hitting Earth. Hubble photographed the slow-moving boulders in December 2022.] Credit: NASA, ESA, D. Jewitt (UCLA)

Hubble spots boulder debris ejected by asteroid impact mission

Astronomers have discovered a swarm of boulders ejected from asteroid Dimorphos after it was impacted by the DART spacecraft. The 37 boulders, which range in size from 1 meter to 6.7 meters across, we...

Astronomers think GRB 221009A represents the birth of a new black hole formed within the heart of a collapsing star. In this illustration, the black hole drives powerful jets of particles traveling near the speed of light. The jets pierce through the star, emitting X-rays and gamma rays as they stream into space. Credit: NASA/Swift/Cruz deWilde

NASA’s Swift, Fermi Missions Detect Exceptional Cosmic Blast

NASA’s Swift, Fermi Missions Detect Exceptional Cosmic Blast as a gamma-ray burst (GRB) – the most powerful class of explosions in the universe visited us. Astronomers think it represents the birth cr...

This imagery from NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope from Oct. 8, 2022, shows the debris blasted from the surface of Dimorphos 285 hours after the asteroid was intentionally impacted by NASA’s DART spacecraft on Sept. 26. The shape of that tail has changed over time. Scientists are continuing to study this material and how it moves in space, in order to better understand the asteroid. Credits: NASA/ESA/STScI/Hubble
