An Original Global Cluster is Captured by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope

 

A magnificent cluster of stars named Palomar 2 was photographed by the Hubble Space Telescope last September 6, 2022. Palomar 2 is located in the constellation of Auriga and is one of the 15 globular known as the Palomar Globular Clusters. As their name suggests, these clusters were discovered and first seen in survey plates from the first Palomar Observatory Sky Survey by the National Geographic Society in the 1950s.

 

The incredible NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope illustration over captures the global cluster in a way that is not feasible with lesser or ground-based observatory telescopes. The said telescope is known for its ability to explore the universe with the help of ultraviolet and infrared wavelengths. As the telescope floats above the Earth’s atmosphere, its mirror, which is much smaller than those found in observatories but is undeniably top-notch, is placed in such a way that it captures incredible images of heavenly bodies with such clarity.

On Hubble’s (@NASAHubble) official and verified Twitter account, the cluster was described as “an unusual globular cluster that shines.” Attached with the tweet was the unique globular clusters’ photograph. This cluster differs from others because it is located approximately five times farther from the Milky Way’s core than the majority of clusters do. Most clusters are known to orbit the center of galaxies.

 

There are several ways in which this particular cluster stands apart. One factor for this is that it is the lone globular cluster that can be seen in this part of the polar constellation Auriga or also known as The Charioteer. Globular clusters circle the colossal hub of a galaxy resembling the Milky Way in a manner similar to in what way satellites path the Earth.

 

Since Palomar 2 is five times farther from the Milky Way’s center than further clusters are, it is a concession to this norm. It is classified as an “outer halo” globular due to its greater distance and reversed direction from Earth.

The Hubble Space Telescope has seen and studied more than 40,000 cosmic objects. Aside from Palomar 2, some of its greatest revelations include the timeline and development of stars and the universe, supermassive black holes, it also mapped the presence of elusive dark matter, discovered two overlapping galaxies named SDSSJ 115331 and LEDA 2073461 just recently, and uncovered the truth that the expansion of the universe is speeding up that is caused by the presence of the yet to be identified “dark energy”.

 

With technologies like the Hubble Space Telescope, considering that we, humans, are still in the process of developing and further understanding these technologies it is undeniable that we still have a lot to figure out about the universe. These discoveries prove that there’s so much more for us to uncover about the things, living and non-living that could be inhabiting the cosmos. With the discovery of Palomar 2 and all the other discoveries of NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, we could say that we are a step closer to revealing what really is there in the out and about.

Snapchat’s All New Dual Camera Feature Now Available on iOS

Snapchat’s All New Dual Camera Feature Now Available on iOS

 

            Since its release in year 2011, Snapchat have dominated the world. With its features like fun filters that spices up your snaps by adding an overlay of special effects. These effects changes over time during special events or depending on locations which are then called Geofilters. The lenses feature is also available that is much like filters but allows AR, 3D special effects, objects and characters to be on your photos.

Snapchat is loved for its journal-like characteristics and features. It allows users to send messages that will disappear after 24 hours. Another feature is the “stories” where the user’s videos and photos called snaps are compiled allowing them to document their day which will be automatically deleted on the platform after a day.

It has been a custom for people to share their life events to their friends and even to the world since the development of social media. Facebook, one of the top social media platforms is known for its feature where people can post significant events in their life for their friends to see. Instagram also has this feature but both platforms don’t automatically delete these posts after 24 hours and so most users turn to Snapchat.

This feature by Snapchat gives the user the freedom to post nonstop and lot guilt free. It frees the user from the worry of flooding their timelines and their friends too. It’s a win-win situation after all.

Just recently, Snapchat released its new Dual Camera Feature that will allow users to shoot a video or capture photos on both lenses at the same time. This will give users more options on how they would like to document their memories.

To use the feature, just click the new icon on the camera toolbar and set your configurations and layouts such as horizontal, vertical, picture-in-picture, and cutout. Users can also include elements like music, stickers, and lenses on their snaps.

The Dual Camera Feature is perfect for creators who make reaction videos. Currently, this is only available on iOS but would also be available on Android; however, it could take some time before it is fully developed to cater all phone types.

Not only that Snapchat is good in documenting life memories but also connects users to their friends and families through its chat feature. Chat is available for individual chats and group chats. The Snap Map adds additional connection for you and your loved ones as it shows the location pins of your contacts. This is not exclusive for your friends as the discover page indulges you in a large audience.

Snapchat is also helpful for businesses, publishers and content creators to reach large audiences and potential market. Another win for the platform and the users!

On the recent years, most social media platforms have adopted this feature and incorporate it on their sites and applications. Facebook and Instagram called them stories allowing them to post updates without flooding their friends feed.
