Wow, so this is how the birth of a planet looks like? How can the Hubble get such clean and perfect images? This almost looks like a painting.https://www.awanireview.com/hubble-witnesses-the-birth-of-a-giant-planet/
>>13075623that's an illustrationhubble can't photograph exoplanets wirh surface detail directly, instead it can detect planets/planet birth by looking at gravitational anomalies, periodic dimming of stars, and absorption lines
>>13075638So the birth of a giant planet is not like that? Why do the media post those pics then? Where ate the real Hubble pictures then?
>>13075623You see artists are the real scientists. (at least the good ones)Yes, it is true, in order to make a machine working, you need high precision, which you can reach only due to measurements, and mathematics.But in order to understand what reality is, you need to understand how geometry works.
Fuck off OP
>>13075651Afaik all the data is available to the public. there should be a link to raw data somewhere on the nasa.gov website.
>>13075844>>13075651Here you go, anon. I think this is perhaps what you are looking for.
>>13075861Forgot the link:>https://hla.stsci.edu/hlaview.htmlHopefully you know what you’re looking at because personally I don’t
>>13075861Where's the birth of the planet? That pic doesnt look like it was taken by a million dollars telescope...
>>13075885This is why they spend all this money on generating simulations, 3d graphics and artists. Regular folks would be so disappointed that they would demand the government to stop funding space exploration. It's all a marketing move.
>>13075915So we can't actually see any of those things they claim are happening in space and that the Hubble is taking pictures of? What the fuck? Is that classic Hubble pic full of galaxies also a fucking fraud?
>>13075885Like I said, I have no clue what I’m looking at either, or what I’m looking for. But I am also interested in this topic, so perhaps we can work together in this thread and figure it out. NASA is tax payer funded, right? So isn’t the Hubble data meant to be public domain? I do not know for sure how it works at all, and .gov sites are notoriously difficult to navigate and have really poor UI.Here’s some (potentially) notable links I found so far from searching "raw data Hubble":>https://hubblesite.orgDidn’t look around here much, but you might find a lead on this website. There is a sitemap at the bottom of the page.>https://registry.opendata.aws/hst/Refers to a dataset containing "calibrated and raw" Hubble data. Appears to be updated hourly>https://astroquery.readthedocs.io/en/latest/mast/mast.htmlDocumentation for the dataset mentioned in previous link.>https://gadgetzz.com/2020/05/21/tutorial-make-your-own-hubble-images-using-data-from-the-legacy-archive/?ampA guide that seems to describe the process that artists use to render images from Hubble data.Well, good luck. Let me know if you figure out anything interesting.
>>13075918fp here, noplanet and star pictures are usually cg, since they're almost impossible to capture due to their angular size, but galaxies and nebulae have much larger angular sizes (the andromeda galaxy for example, is from edge to edge 5 times the diamater of the full moon when viewed from earth), so they're readily capturedthe picture i've posted is of NGC 4862, aka the black eye galaxy, this is a real picture taken by hubble
>>13075918Space doesnt exist.
>>13076065that's terrifying. this universe is monstrous and obscene.
>>13076065space isn't even real so how can that image be real? Something isn't adding up here
>>13076084This but unironically.
>>13075638>hubble can't photograph exoplanets wirh surface detail directly Just because it cannot resolve an exoplanet doesn't mean it cannot directly image one. This article is doing exactly that. Here are the Hubble images from the paper.https://arxiv.org/abs/2104.13934
>>13076519SPHERE on the VLT took a much better image, ground based telescopes have much better coronagraphs than Hubble.
>>13076065How do you know all that bro? Got any book recommendations?
>>13076540Whoa, that's the planet? That's awesone as fuck
>>13076943The bright spot is the planet, the rest is the protoplanetary disk around the star. The star is in the middle, blocked out by the black circle.
>>13076084>>13076343Check between your ears.
>>13077039How do they block the star?
>>13077604You calling them galaxy brains?
