SOFIA Observatory Indicates Star Eruptions Create and Scatter Elements with Earth-like Composition - March 8, 2016

A.  “Observations made with NASA’s flying observatory, the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) indicate that nova eruptions create elements that can form rocky planets, much like Earth..”

B.   “… using SOFIA to study novae as part of an ongoing research program to understand the role these objects play in creating and injecting elements into the material between the stars called the interstellar medium.”

C.  “She continued, “this research is part of the broad, ongoing effort by astronomers to understand the life cycles of stars, and how the formation of planets like Earth fit into those cycles.”

  2nd OPINION:

 I have ALREADY written it in my ORAL PRESENTATION “Regeneration of Star & formation of a Solar system – a Potter man's concept” on 24th, July’ 2015 in an International Science Conference in Vietnam.

  It is my new hypothesis for the formation of Solar system on the basis of Universal Science 

  Reference:

  “Planetary System – a synergistic view”,  Vietnam [19th-25th , July’15]




D.    “Gerhz and his team found high levels of elements such as carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, neon, magnesium, aluminum and silicon in the Nova Delphini, which erupted in 2013 in the constellation Delphinum (the Dolphin). Some of these elements can be found in living things, whereas others are important constituents of rocky planets such as Earth.”

  2nd OPINION:

  I have ALREADY written on 24th, July’ 2015, that heavy elements comes out first during Supernova blast.

  I also explained how heavy element comes out first.

  I explained how , why and where the planets formed.

  Reference:

 “Regeneration of Star & formation of a Solar system – a Potter man's concept”,

   Also refer my comments dated 23rd, April’ 2013 & 16th, May’ 2013

E.    “Atoms of heavier elements were made later by processes inside stars, or during star death throes such as nova and supernova explosions.”

  2nd OPINION:

  I can explain where & how?



My work is important because I'm thinking out of box, I am looking the Universe from another window (of Dark Matter & Dark Energy) while our scientific window is different but on many topic we are drawing the same picture of  universe. [www.swarajgroups.blogspot.in]

The sequence in Science are:

  1. OBSERVATION,
  2. HYPOTHESIS/SPECULATION
  3. EXPLANATION OF DIFFERENT PHENOMENON BY THE HYPOTHESIS
  4. PREDICTION
  5. MATHEMATICAL FORMULATION
  6. EXPERIMENTATION
  7. APPLICATION

Our terrestrial Science also develop in above sequence but now we are mainly focused on point 5, 6 & 7

In case of Universal Science I  am struggling to reach up to point 4 only. 

I NEED HELP TO PROMOTE IT TO  LEVEL 5, 6 & 7.

AS AN INDIVIDUAL RESEARCHER, I AM OPEN TO WORK WITH GOOD TEAM TO AMEND [IF REQUIRED] & PROMOTE THE UNIVERSAL SCIENCE.

CERN also indicating a different Science.



Observations made with NASA’s flying observatory, the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) indicate that nova eruptions create elements that can form rocky planets, much like Earth.
Astronomers occasionally see a nova, which may appear as a “new” star that grows brighter and then fades away after a few weeks. In fact, “nova” (plural, novae) is the Latin word for “new.” We now know that novae are not actually new stars, but rather are associated with stellar old age: explosions occurring on the surfaces of burned-out stars. They are less violent and more common than the star-shattering explosions called supernovae that completely destroy an aging star.
Principal investigator Bob Gehrz of the University of Minnesota Twin Cities, and collaborators have been using SOFIA to study novae as part of an ongoing research program to understand the role these objects play in creating and injecting elements into the material between the stars called the interstellar medium.
Gerhz and his team found high levels of elements such as carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, neon, magnesium, aluminum and silicon in the Nova Delphini, which erupted in 2013 in the constellation Delphinum (the Dolphin). Some of these elements can be found in living things, whereas others are important constituents of rocky planets such as Earth.

There is evidence that when the universe began in the Big Bang, only trace amounts of elements other than hydrogen and helium were created. Atoms of heavier elements were made later by processes inside stars, or during star death throes such as nova and supernova explosions.
The observations of the Nova Delphini debris cloud indicate that novae in general may be a major source of medium-weight elements in the universe. Their paper was published in the Astrophysical Journal.
SOFIA’s Program Scientist Pam Marcum noted that “these spectra of Nova Delphinum could only be obtained by SOFIA, not by any observatory on the ground or currently in space, because of SOFIA’s unique access to the specific range of infrared wavelengths needed for these measurements.” She continued, “this research is part of the broad, ongoing effort by astronomers to understand the life cycles of stars, and how the formation of planets like Earth fit into those cycles.”
The observations for these findings were gathered with the FORCAST instrument on SOFIA, the Faint Object infraRed CAmera for the SOFIA Telescope, which can gather images and spectra of planets, stars, interstellar clouds and galaxies at mid-infrared wavelengths. SOFIA is a Boeing 747SP jetliner modified to carry a 100-inch diameter telescope. NASA’s Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California manages the SOFIA program. The SOFIA Science Center is based at Ames and managed by NASA in cooperation with the Universities Space Research Association of Columbia, Maryland, and the German SOFIA Institute at the University of Stuttgart. The aircraft is based at NASA's Armstrong Flight Research Center facility in Palmdale, California.
