Preview of a Forthcoming Supernova  NASA image release Feb. 24, 2012

Funny pictures about An actual photograph of a star going supernova. Oh, and cool pics about An actual photograph of a star going supernova. Also, An actual photograph of a star going supernova.

Nebulous Strings in the Veil Nebula. This image shows a small portion of the Veil Nebula - the shattered remains of a supernova that exploded thousands of years ago. The Veil Nebula is located in the Constellation Cygnus about 1,500 light-years away. The entire structure spans about 3 degrees on the sky (about the size of 6 full moons). On a larger scale, the hot ionized gas that makes up this nebula forms a giant loop that is more than 100 light-years across. Credit: NASA/Hubble

The Eagle Nebula "pillars of creation"

Pillars of Creation - Taken in 1995 by Hubble Telescope, forming in Eagle Nebula light years away. And it's about 4 light years tall! Personally, one of the most beautiful, inspiring and fascinating images I've ever seen :).

NGC 3576: Glowing Gas in the Milky Way - NASA

NGC Glowing Gas in the Milky Way A region of glowing gas in the Sagittarius arm of the Milky Way galaxy, NGC 3576 is located about light years from Earth. Such nebulas present a tableau of the drama of the evolution of massive stars, from the

NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft captured this high-resolution enhanced color view of Pluto on July 14, 2015. The image combines blue, red and infrared images. Pluto’s surface sports a remarkable range of subtle colors, enhanced in this view to a rainbow of pale blues, yellows, oranges, and deep reds. Many landforms have their own distinct colors, telling a complex geological and climatological story that scientists have only just begun to decode.

The Rich Color Variations of Pluto

NASA's New Horizon mission flew past Pluto on July revealing a world with glaciers, mountains and an atmosphere.
