TWINSBURG PUBLIC LIBRARY CELEBRATES THE
INTERNATIONAL YEAR OF ASTRONOMY WITH UNVEILING OF NEW
IMAGES OF THE MILKY WAY'S CORE FROM NASA'S GREAT OBSERVATORIES
Twinsburg Public Library will take visitors on a journey to the center of our Galaxy
when it unveils unprecedented images of the Milky Way's core as
seen by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, Spitzer Space
Telescope and Chandra X-ray Observatory.
The images will be unveiled to the public on
Monday, November 23, 2009 at 6:30pm.
Clyde Simpson, Observatory Coordinator of the
Cleveland Museum of Natural History, will speak.
Within these images one can trace the spectacle of stellar evolution: from
vibrant regions of star birth, to young hot stars, to old cool stars, to
seething remnants of stellar death called black holes. This activity
occurs against a vivid backdrop in the crowded, hostile environment of the
Galaxy's core, the center of which is dominated by a supermassive black
hole millions of times more massive than our Sun. These multi-wavelength
views provide both stunning beauty and a wealth of scientific information
that could not have been dreamed of by Galileo.
