This mesmerizing composite image of the Orion Nebula was captured by astrophotographer John Chumack (www.galacticimages.com/) on Sept. 22, from his observatories in Yellow Springs Research Station in Yellow Springs, Ohio. http://oak.ctx.ly/r/euge "The Orion Nebula is such a fantastic object that I just can't resist capturing a new shot each season," Chumack wrote via email.
The largest star ever discovered may give scientists a better sense of how massive, dying stars seed the universe with the ingredients for rocky planets and even life. http://oak.ctx.ly/r/eyjp The red supergiant star is nearing the end of its life and will eventually explode as a supernova, researchers said.

Could black holes have "hair"? In a challenge to traditional models, new research suggests black holes could be quite "hairy," with more tangled features than previously believed. http://oak.ctx.ly/r/eu5m Astronomer John Wheeler, who coined the term "black hole" nearly 50 years ago, famously said that "black holes have no hair" because of their simplicity. Now "hair" is used as a colloquial term among physicists as a stand-in for any other measure needed to describe a black hole that departs from the traditional three-quantity model.
Designed when the number of confirmed exoplanets could be counted on two hands, NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope has increasingly become a strong observer of these distant bodies since its launch 10 years ago. http://oak.ctx.ly/r/f0pk "When Spitzer was launched back in 2003, the idea that we would use it to study exoplanets was so crazy that no one considered it," Sean Carey, of NASA's Spitzer Space Science Center.
