Las mejores imágenes del cosmos 2015, por Reuters

Reuters elige año a año las mejores fotografías referentes a muchos temas, como política, sociedad, deportes, naturaleza, etc. El sello general es que son imágenes muy exclusivas, de altísima calidad y que sorprenden por los detalles y el  mensaje que entregan.

Esta vez dejaré aquí los mejores pictogramas del 2015 de un lugar que está lleno de vistas impresionantes, el cielo y lo que está más allá, el cosmos.

Dicen que una imagen vale más de mil palabras, pero de todos modos dejaré un pequeño escrito de que tema “habla” cada fotografía (está en inglés), las mejores de astronomía para este año que ya nos deja.

Que les guste!

Un abrazo, Germán.

PD: Mis favoritas son la aurora boreal tomada desde la estación internacional, la de Edwin Aldrin en la luna en 1969, el remanente de “veil nebula” una espectacular supernova y el “close up” de Plutón, algo que realmente conmueve.

A mid-level solar flare is seen in an image from NASA?s Solar Dynamics Observatory
A mid-level solar flare is seen in an image from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory on January 12, 2015. Harmful radiation from a solar flare cannot pass through Earth’s atmosphere to physically affect humans on the ground, however — when intense enough — they can disturb the atmosphere in the layer where GPS and communications signals travel, according to NASA.

A small section of the expanding remains of the Veil Nebula, a massive star that exploded about 8,000 years ago. The entire nebula is 110 light-years across, covering six full moons on the sky as seen from Earth, and resides about 2,100 light-years away in the constellation Cygnus, the Swan.

An expanding shell of debris called SNR 0519-69.0 is seen after a massive star exploded in the Large Magellanic Cloud
An expanding shell of debris called SNR 0519-69.0 is left behind after a massive star exploded in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy to the Milky Way. Multimillion degree gas is seen in X-rays from Chandra, in blue. The outer edge of the explosion (red) and stars in the field of view are seen in visible light from the Hubble Space Telescope.
