astronomicalwonders: The Syrtis Major Volcanic Province - The Martian Surface Acquired by the High Resolution Stereo Camera on ESA’s Mars Express Satellite, this image depicts a detailed region of the Martian Nili Fossae Graben system. This system is an area of great interest to geologists due to the variety of its landscape. The graben system contains numerous troughs, plateaus, impact craters and depressions. Planetary Scientists are actively studying the data collected from ESA’s Mars…


This dramatic image offers a peek inside a cavern of roiling dust and gas where thousands of stars are forming. The image, taken by the Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) aboard NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, represents the sharpest view ever taken of this region, called the Orion Nebula. More than 3,000 stars of various sizes appear in this image. Some of them have never been seen in visible light. These stars reside in a dramatic dust-and-gas landscape of plateaus, mountains, and valleys...

Ring of New Stars in Edge-On #GalaxyNGC4013 | After more than three years of inactivity, and thanks to a new cryogenic refrigerator, the Hubble Space Telescope's Near Infrared Camera and Multi-Object Spectrometer (NICMOS) today debuts various breathtaking views of galaxi...


I think this is one of the coolest stars out there. The Pistol star, 25,000 light years away, has ejected almost 10 solar masses of material so far, and radiates as much energy in a minute as the Sun does in three years.
