    That's right folks--warp drive is on it's way!!"A warp drive would manipulate space time itself to move a starship, taking advantage of a loophole in the laws of physics that prevent anything from moving faster than light." Although the initial amount of energy though needed for this was astronomical, scientists are now calculating that models could be created that would require much less energy. A NASA scientist is now experimenting with a mini version of these warp drives in his laboratory.


    THE WARP DRIVE COULD BECOME SCIENCE FACT - New calculations of the energy required to warp spacetime suggest the Star Trek propulsion favorite could be tested.

NASA ECHO II S-131 // From Wikipedia: "Project Echo was the first passive communications satellite experiment. Each of the two American spacecraft, launched in 1960 and 1964, was a metalized balloon satellite acting as a passive reflector of microwave signals. Communication signals were bounced off of them from one point on Earth to another."

The Mineral Moon (NASA/JPL) - this mosaic of 53 images was recorded by the Jupiter-bound Galileo spacecraft as it passed near our own large natural satellite in 1992. The pictures were recorded through three spectral filters and combined in an exaggerated false-color scheme to explore the composition of the lunar surface as changes in mineral content produce subtle color differences in reflected light.

Wolf-Rayet Nebula is a nebula which surrounds a Wolf-Rayet star. There are different types of WR-nebula, based on their formation mechanism: 1.HII regions 2.ejecta-type nebulae 3.wind-blown bubbles 4.neutral hydrogen voids and shells (may be associated gas). The nebula shown is a 'wind-blown bubbles' type.

On July 19, NASA's Cassini spacecraft captured a rare image of Saturn's rings and our planet Earth and its moon.

The Cassini spacecraft took this view of Saturn’s moon Dione in October 2005, with the tranquil gold and blue hues of Saturn in the distance. The horizontal stripes near the bottom of the image are Saturn's rings

Enceladus: A Tectonic Feast Credit: NASA/JPL/Space Science Institute NASA's Cassini spacecraft has been studying Saturn and its moons since it entered orbit in 2004. This image, taken on Oct. 5, 2008, is a stunning mosaic of the geologically active Enceladus after a Cassini flyby.
