Supernova Blast

Supernova Blast

Intricate wisps of glowing gas float amid a myriad of stars in this image of the supernova remnant called N132D in the nearby galaxy, the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), a nearby neighbor galaxy of our own Milky Way. The ejected material shows that roughly 3,000 years have passed since the supernova blast...

Cap Finisterre, Spain - End of the Camino de Santiago

Cap Finisterre, Spain - End of the Camino de Santiago

The Camino de Santiago through Northern Spain is the longest footpath in the world. Cap Finisterre is the end of the Camino, "the road under the stars." Pilgrims in the medieval world followed the pale arm of Milky Way. It pointed to the edge of the known world: Cap Finisterre, Galicia. Galicia has a very Celtic landscape.

On Nov. 11, 2002 there occurred a huge oil-tanker disaster (the ...

Star Birth

Star Birth

"This festively colorful nebula, called NGC 604, is one of the largest known seething cauldrons of star birth seen in a nearby galaxy. NGC 604 is similar to familiar star-birth regions in our Milky Way galaxy, such as the Orion Nebula, but it is vastly larger in extent and contains many more recently formed stars. This monstrous star-birth region contains more than 200 brilliant blue stars...

Baby Galaxy

Baby Galaxy

Scientists using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have measured the age of what may be the youngest galaxy ever seen in the universe. By cosmological standards it is a mere toddler seemingly out of place among the grown-up galaxies around it. Called I Zwicky 18, it may be as young as 500 million years old (so recent an epoch that complex life had already begun to appear on Earth). Our Milky Way ga...

Edge-View of Galaxy

Edge-View of Galaxy

The Hubble telescope has snapped this remarkable view of a perfectly "edge-on" galaxy, NGC 4013. This new Hubble picture reveals with exquisite detail huge clouds of dust and gas extending along, as well as far above, the galaxy's main disk. NGC 4013 is a spiral galaxy, similar to our Milky Way, lying some 55 million light-years from Earth in the direction of the constellation Ursa Ma...

Tadpole Galaxy

Tadpole Galaxy

Set against a rich tapestry of 6,000 galaxies, the Tadpole, with its long tail of stars, looks like a runaway pinwheel firework. Another picture depicts a spectacular collision between two spiral galaxies -- dubbed "The Mice" -- that presages what may happen to our own Milky Way several billion years from now when it collides with the neighboring galaxy in the constellation Andromeda....

Cassiopeia A

Cassiopeia A

"Glowing gaseous streamers of red, white, and blue — as well as green and pink — illuminate the heavens like Fourth of July fireworks. The colorful streamers that float across the sky in this photo taken by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope were created by the universe's biggest firecracker, the titanic supernova explosion of a massive star. The light from the exploding star reached Earth 320 ...
