A Tour of The Big, Bad & Beautiful Universe with Chandra
A Tour of The Big, Bad & Beautiful Universe with Chandra
To celebrate the 15th anniversary of NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory, we have released four new images of supernova remnants. These show Chandra's ability to study the remains of supernova explosions, using images that are the sharpest available in X-ray astronomy. The images of the Tycho and G292.0+1.8 supernova remnants show how Chandra can trace the expanding debris of an exploded star. The images show shock waves, similar to sonic booms from a supersonic plane, that travel through space at speeds of millions of miles per hour. The images of the Crab Nebula and 3C58 show the effects of very dense, rapidly spinning neutron stars created when a massive star explodes. These neutron stars can create clouds of high-energy particles that glow brightly in X-rays. The image for G292 shows oxygen (yellow and orange), and other elements such as magnesium (green) and silicon and sulfur (blue) that were forged in the star before it exploded. For the other images, the lower energy X-rays are shown in red and green and the highest energy X-rays are shown in blue. (2014-07-22)
Chandra Podcasts :: How do I Subscribe?

What is Podcasting?

Podcasts let you subscribe and automatically download audio and video content when it becomes available

To subscribe to a podcast, you need a couple of items:

  • Podcasting software -- There are any number of free programs that you can download to play your podcasts -- itunes and ipodder are the most common.
  • The URL of your podcast's RSS/XML feed: Beside each of our podcasts, you'll see an orange XML graphic. By clicking on this, you view the actual RSS/XML feed for that particular podcast. Most software will ask you for the URL of the podcast to which you'd like to subscribe. To provide this, click the XML graphic on the page and copy the URL that appears at the top. Note: some software, such as itunes, won't prompt you for the URL but will instead list podcasts in a directory on their site.
More Information on Podcasting and Podcasting Software

Many podcasting applications are available. At the Wikipedia Web site, there is an overview of podcasting and links for available podcasting applications. Note: Wikipedia is a collaborative Internet encyclopedia and is not affiliated with chandra.harvard.edu.

What do I get when I've subscribed?

When you subscribe, you can go directly into your podcast software and have it search for new content. All the latest featured audio or video content from the Chandra website will automatically get downloaded for you. You can then choose to listen or view the content right then, or download it to a portable listening device for later viewing or listening.
