      Saturn Moon Mimas Get Wallpaper On moon Mimas, the enormous Herschel Crater spans 80 miles (130 kilometers)—one-third of the moon's entire surface. The peak in the middle of the crater is about as tall as Mount Everest. The impact that made this crater likely almost destroyed Mimas.

    Westerlund 2 — NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image of the cluster Westerlund 2 and its surroundings has been released to celebrate Hubble’s 25th year in orbit and a quarter of a century of new discoveries, stunning images and outstanding science.

    Little gem - This colourful bubble is a planetary nebula called NGC 6818, also known as the Little Gem Nebula. It is located in the constellation of Sagittarius (The Archer), roughly 6000 light-years away from us. The rich glow of the cloud is just over half a light-year across — humongous compared to its tiny central star — but still a little gem on a cosmic scale.

    This will leave you speechless.

    Remix Nebula ...So what is a nebula? It is a cloud of dust, hydrogen, helium and other gases that attract matter and materials to clump. These so called clumps form stars, planets, and other planetary systems. In simple, Nebulae are where the stars are formed! (Wikipedia)

    The wings of the cosmic butterfly | New Hubble image of the Twin Jet Nebula, PN M2-9. The characteristic shape of the wings of the Twin Jet Nebula is most likely caused by the motion of the two central stars around each other. The two stars at the heart of the nebula circle one another roughly every 100 years. | Credit: ESA/Hubble & NASA. Acknowledgement: Judy Schmidt

    The Lagoon Nebula ~ captured in all its psychedelic glory by the Gemini Observatory in Hawaii. An all-time favorite of sky-watchers on both hemispheres, the Lagoon Nebula (Messier 8, or M8) is among the most striking examples of a stellar nursery in our neighborhood of the Milky Way galaxy. Located in the direction of the constellation Sagittarius in the southern Milky Way and visible in telescopes and binoculars its fuzzy glow reveals the type of chaotic environment where new stars are born.

    "There is for me powerful evidence that there is something going on behind it all... It seems as though somebody has fine-tuned nature’s numbers to make the Universe....The impression of design is overwhelming." -- Paul Davies, astrophysicist [4.Davies, P. 1988.

    This planetary nebula, Mz3, is being cast off by a star similar to our Sun. The 1000-kilometer per second speed of the expelled gas, the light-year long length of the structure, and the magnetism of the star visible at the nebula's center, all imply Mz3 is hiding a second, dimmer star that orbits close in to the bright star. A competing hypothesis holds that the central star's own spin and magnetic field are channeling the gas. (ESA, NASA's Hubble, JPL-CalTech)
