Extreme ultraviolet Image of the Sun
Courtesy of SOHO/[instrument] consortium.

SOHO-EIT image in resonance lines of eight and nine times ionized iron (Fe IX/X) at 171 Angstroms in the extreme ultraviolet showing the solar corona at a temperature of about 1 million K. This image was recorded on 11 September 1997. It is dominated by two large active region systems, composed of numerous magnetic loops. SOHO is a project of international cooperation between ESA and NASA. You may look through our research projects at the main page of our professional letter writer service.

Burst of Star Formation Drives Bubble in Galaxy's Core

These NASA Hubble Space Telescope snapshots reveal dramatic activities within the core of the galaxy NGC 3079, where a lumpy bubble of hot gas is rising from a cauldron of glowing matter.

This image of Earth's city lights was created with data from the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) Operational Linescan System (OLS). Originally designed to view clouds by moonlight, the OLS is also used to map the locations of permanent lights on the Earth's surface.

The Goldstone Deep Space Communications Complex, located in the Mojave Desert in California, is one of three complexes which comprise NASA's Deep Space Network (DSN). The DSN provides radio communications for all of NASA's interplanetary spacecraft and is also utilized for radio astronomy and radar observations of the solar system and the universe.

The DSN is an international network of antennae that supports interplanetary spacecraft missions and radio and radar astronomy observations for the exploration of the solar system and the universe.

Twin Peaks in Super Resolution - Right Eye

The Twin Peaks are modest-size hills to the southwest of the Mars Pathfinder landing site. They were discovered on the first panoramas taken by the IMP camera on the 4th of July, 1997, and subsequently identified in Viking Orbiter images taken over 20 years ago.

Centaurus A Arcs: Arcs Tell The Tale Of A Giant Eruption
Courtesy of Chandra X-ray Observatory Center

A composite X-ray (blue), radio (pink and green), and optical (orange and yellow) image of the galaxy Centaurus A presents a stunning tableau of a galaxy in turmoil. A broad band of dust and cold gas is bisected at an angle by opposing jets of high-energy particles blasting away from the supermassive black hole in the nucleus. Two large arcs of X-ray emitting hot gas were discovered in the outskirts of the galaxy on a plane perpendicular to the jets.
