X-ray Images of Our Universe

I want to share with you the Paul Kerley’s slideshow of some of the most colorful X-ray images captured by the Chandra Observatory, which orbits the Earth once every 64 hours. It is wonderful for me to see those images it has produced during the last ten years from when the it was first deployed on 23 July 1999 to 23 July 2009. The narration of the slideshow was done by Daren Baskill, an X-ray astronomer at the University of Sussex. One of the most beautiful image is the cat’s eye nebula, with its blue, purple and orange color-mixture. The Chandra Telescope is Nasa’s flagship mission to continue exploring the realms of X-ray astronomy in our Universe.
