O Star (the fairest one in sight) We grant your loftiness the right To some obscurity of cloud ~ It will not do to say of night, since dark is what brings out your light ... It asks a little of us here, It asks of us a certain height, so when at times the mob is swayed to carry praise or blame too far, We may choose something like a star To stay our minds on and be staid. • Robert Frost, from the poem "Choose Something Like a Star", 1916

Thor’s Helmet Nebula - NGC 2359 (also known as Thor's Helmet) is an emission nebula in the constellation Canis Major. The nebula is approximately 15,000 light-years away and 30 light years in size. The central star is the Wolf-Rayet star HD 56925, an extremely hot giant thought to be in a brief, pre-supernova stage of evolution

The ice fountains of Enceladus Fountains of water ice blast thousands of kilometres above the surface of Saturn's tiny moon Enceladus. It is thought that the pull of Saturn's powerful gravity distorts the moon and heats the interior, forming an underground ocean. When this reservoir of water contacts the vacuum of space it vaporises and explodes above the moon. Any liquid water freezes instantly. Images of the ice fountains were first captured by the Cassini probe.

"Physicists say we are made of stardust. Intergalactic debris and far-flung atoms, shards of carbon nanomatter rounded up by gravity to circle the sun. As atoms pass through an eternal revolving door of possible form, energy and mass dance in fluid relationship. We are man, we are thought, we are story. We are all star stuff."
