      The Red Rectangle Nebula from Hubble Image Credit: ESA, Hubble, NASA; Reprocessing: Steven Marx, Hubble Legacy Archive Explanation: How was the unusual Red Rectangle nebula created? At the nebulas center is an aging binary star system that surely powers the nebula but does not, as yet, explain its colors. The unusual shape of the Red Rectangle is likely due to a thick dust torus which pinches the otherwise spherical outflow into tip-touching cone shapes.--->

    Saturn: Bright Tethys and Ancient Rings (Sept 16 2012) Image Credit: Cassini Imaging Team, SSI, JPL, ESA, NASA Explanation: How old are Saturn's rings? No one is quite sure. One possibility is that the rings formed relatively recently in our Solar System's history, perhaps only about 100 million years ago when a moon-sized object broke up near Saturn. Evidence for a young ring age includes a basic stability analysis for rings, and the fact that the rings are so bright (...) #Saturn #space
