Ames Hypersonic Free Flight Aerodynamic Facility is used for research on gas dynamic problems of atmospheric entry. High relative speeds are achieved by launching models (in sabots if necessary) from high-speed guns into a countercurrent hypersonic air stream (14,000 ft/sec) driven by combustion-powered shock tube.

Chandra's observation of the hot halo surrounding the optical disk of NGC 5746 should help astronomers better understand how galaxies form. Spiral galaxies are thought to form from enormous clouds of intergalactic gas that collapse to form spinning disks of stars and gas. The Chandra data and computer simulations show that the likely origin of NGC 5746's hot halo is the gradual inflow of intergalactic matter left over from the formation of the galaxy.

This illustration explains the process that astronomers think triggered the explosion in SN 2006gy. When a star is very massive, its core can produce so much gamma-ray light that some of the energy from the radiation is converted into particle and anti-particle pairs. The resulting drop in energy causes the star to collapse under its own huge gravity. After this violent collapse, runaway thermonuclear reactions (not shown here) ensue and the star explodes, spewing the remains into space....

This labeled image highlights some of the important features of the Chandra X-ray Observatory image of Centaurus A. At the center of the galaxy is where the active nucleus and the launching point for a jet are featured. Particles in the jet and radiation from the active nucleus are both powered by a supermassive black hole. To the upper left the jet is shown, and the shorter "counterjet" points in the opposite direction. (Credit: NASA/CXC/CfA/R.Kraft et al.)

An artist's rendering that shows a binary system consisting of a massive star and a black hole. Matter spirals from the massive star toward the black hole, forming a disk. The matter is heated to temperatures of million of degrees, and intense electromagnetic forces in the disk expel jets of high-energy matter. In this system the jets are slowly wobbling, or precessing, (represented by blue circular arrow) around a fixed axis (dotted white line). (Illustration: NASA/CXC/M.Weiss)

The infrared image from the Spitzer Space Telescope and the famous Hubble Space Telescope image show the gas and dust of this star-forming region. The X-ray image from Chandra allows astronomers to peer through the obscuring material, and shows that the Eagle Nebula may be past its prime in terms of making stars. One young star is found inside the pillars, which...

An artist's illustration depicts the sound waves (ripples) in the hot gas that fills the Perseus cluster. Key elements of the system are labeled in the version on the right. The ripple features were discovered by using a special image-processing technique to bring out subtle changes in brightness. These sound waves are thought to have been generated by cavities blown out by jets from a supermassive black hole (bright white spot) at the center of the Perseus cluster.

There are many complex structures located at the center of our Galaxy, many of which Chandra has observed through X-rays. The general area around the Milky Way's center is known as "Sagittarius A". Within that, there are two components known as "Sgr A East" and "Sgr A West". Astronomers think that Sgr A East (large, dotted ellipse) may be the remnant of a supernova that exploded thousands of years ago. Sgr A West (smaller, solid ellipse) is a spiral-shaped group of...

The optical image (left) of NGC 891 shows a dark disk of dust and gas, with contours outlining the region where the X-ray shadow of the galaxy is darkest. The Chandra image (right) shows a few point-like sources due to neutron stars and black holes, and a shadow cast by the galaxy on an otherwise bright background of X-rays. This shadow is evidence for a source of X-rays beyond the galaxy. These X-rays are thought to come from a vast, distant intergalactic cloud of multimillion degree gas....

The flight of the Ares I-X rocket will provide NASA an early opportunity to test and prove hardware, models, facilities and ground operations associated with the Ares I launch vehicle. The flight also will allow NASA to gather critical data during ascent of the integrated stack, which includes the Ares I launch vehicle with a simulated upper stage, Orion crew exploration vehicle and launch abort...

When the Sun reflects off the surface of the ocean at the same angle that a satellite sensor is viewing the surface, a phenomenon called sunglint occurs. In the sunglint area of a satellite image, smooth ocean water becomes a silvery mirror, while rougher surface waters appear dark. Sometimes the sunglint region of satellite images reveals interesting ocean or atmospheric features that the sensor doesn't usually observe. On May 23, 2005, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer...

This true-color image shows bright, turquoise-colored swirls across the surface of the Black Sea, signifying the presence of a large phytoplankton bloom. Scientists have observed similar blooms recurring annually, roughly this same time of year. The Sea of Azov, which is the smaller body of water located just north of the Black Sea in this image, also shows a high level of biological activity currently ongoing. The brownish pixels in the Azov are probably sediments carried in from high waters...
