Neuroscience and Psychology
The brain is the most complex and fascinating biological organ known in the entire universe. It is the product of a harmonious collaboration of more than a dozen cells that gives rise to our mind, thoughts, emotions, and dreams. Here, you can explore our interior universe.
Biology and Evolution
It was once said that nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution. From molecules to cells and brains, evolution has shaped our world and the many forms of life on Earth. We are still here trying to understand how do we got here.
Our grandparents were not prepared for the technological revolutions that the 20th century brought. We have traveled to the moon and sent probes to the ends of space, while descending to the depths of the sea or reading brain waves. What will the next decades bring?
M10 is a very bright and star-rich cluster. Located in the constellation Ofiuco, it is estimated to be approximately 16,000 light-years from the center of our galaxy. An analysis of its radial velocity allows us to deduce that it is moving away from Earth at more than 271,440 km/h.
Like all globular clusters, M9 is a spectacle in itself, and one of the oldest and most intriguing objects in our galaxy. M9 stands out as one of the closest globular clusters to the center of our galaxy, only 5,500 light-years away.
Like all emission nebulae, M8 or NGC 6523 is a gigantic HII region, that is, a spectacular cradle of stars. With a magnitude of 5.8, this incredible nebula boasts many large, hot stars, whose ultraviolet radiation sculpts the gases and cosmic dust, giving it its characteristic shape.
Also known as NGC 6475, M7 is an open cluster, that is, a group of gravitationally bound stars formed by the same molecular cloud. It is a very sparse cluster, located in a very rich region of the Milky Way.
This beautiful cluster comprises more than 200 stars and has a diameter of about 12-20 light-years. It is estimated that its stars were formed about 100 million years ago, which means that while dinosaurs roamed the planet, M6 was just beginning to shine in the sky.
The globular cluster M5 is probably one of the most interesting because it is one of the oldest, largest, and brightest clusters. It is located in the constellation of The Serpent (Serpens) at a distance of approximately 24,500 light-years.
