🌎We just saw events unfold 55 million light years away...If this was the past...Can we also see Earth's past?

🔭What if the telescopes were planted away from the Earth and looked at Earth from a distance...
Can we actually see the future?

👽 Why didn't they zoom in on suspect planets/galaxies...not a single alien in sight??
Are we alone after all?

Powehi: black hole gets a name meaning ‘the adorned fathomless dark creation’
https://nypost.com/2019/04/11/histori...
https://www.theguardian.com/science/2...
It comes from the Kumulipo, an 18th century Hawaiian creation chant. Po is a profound dark source of unending creation, while wehi, meaning honoured with embellishments, is one of the chant’s descriptions of po
A Hawaiian name was justified because the project included two telescopes in Hawaii, astronomers said.

What NASA says about black holes:

A black hole is a place in space where gravity pulls so much that even light can not get out. The gravity is so strong because matter has been squeezed into a tiny space. This can happen when a star is dying.
Because no light can get out, people can't see black holes. They are invisible

’The Paradox of Time’’, composed by the British poet Austin Dobson:
“Time goes, you say? Ah no!
Alas, Time stays, we go;
Or else, were this not so,
What need to chain the hours,
For youth were always ours?

Ours is the eye’s deceit
Of men whose flying feet
Lead through some landscape low;
We pass, and think we see
The earth’s fixed surface flee,
Alas, time stays, we go!

Once in the days of old
Your locks were curling gold,
And mine had shamed the crow.
Now, in the self-same stage,
We’ve reached the silver age,
Time goes, you say? - ah no!
Alas, time stays, we go!”

A new planet discovered:
https://www.space.com/third-alien-pla...
Kepler-47 is a roughly 3.5-billion-year-old system located 3,340 light-years from Earth.
The newly announced Kepler-47d, which is about 7 times bigger than Earth.
Kepler-47b and Kepler-47c, both have two suns in their skies, just like Luke Skywalker's home planet of Tatooine in the "Star Wars" universe.
The researchers made the discovery using the most prolific planet hunter of all time, NASA's Kepler space telescope.

If you look at the galaxy ESO 137-001 in visible light, you can see why it's considered an example of a "jellyfish" galaxy. Blue ribbons of young stars dangle from the galaxy's disk like cosmic tentacles.

College Students Hatch Nuclear-Powered Magnetic Plan to Protect Marsonauts from Cosmic Rays
A group of undergrad students is developing a magnetic shield to defend interplanetary astronauts from the intense cosmic radiation between Earth and Mars.

The students, from Drake University in Iowa, presented their project in the poster session Saturday (April 13) at the April meeting of the American Physical Society. Their MISSFIT (Magneto-Ionization Spacecraft Shield for Interplanetary Travel) design uses a powerful magnetic shield that, like Earth's magnetosphere, protects the planet from high-energy particles. The defense system also incorporates "passive" shielding to mimic the ionosphere — Earth's second layer of defense

🔭The universe is expanding considerably faster than it should be, Nasa has confirmed.

🔭The space agency's Hubble Space Telescope shows that it is growing about 9 per cent faster than we had expected, based on the trajectory it started with shortly after the big bang, according to astronomers.
