Blue Marble 2012 - Arctic View Image Credit: NASA/GSFC Fifteen orbits of the recently launched Suomi NPP satellite provided the VIIRS instrument enough time (and longitude) to gather the pixels for this synthesized view of Earth showing the Arctic, Europe, and Asia. Suomi NPP orbits the Earth about 14 times each day and observes nearly the entire surface. The NPP satellite continues key data records that are critical for climate change science.

Space Station Flies Over Super Typhoon Maysak | NASA
Interesting Photos, Reach Categori, Cloud, Knot, Eye
Typhoon Maysak strengthened into a super typhoon on March 31, reaching Category 5 hurricane status on the Saffir-Simpson Wind Scale. ESA Astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti captured this image while flying over the weather system on board the International Space Station. The Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) and Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) satellites, both co-managed by NASA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, captured rainfall and cloud data that revealed heavy rainfall and high thunderstorms in the strengthening storm. The TRMM satellite has been collecting valuable scientific data since November 1997. Early on March 30, the satellite collected rainfall data as it flew directly above Maysak at 04:14 UTC (12:14 a.m. EDT) when maximum sustained winds were near 85 knots (98 mph). Rainfall data was collected by TRMM's Microwave Imager (TMI) and Precipitation Radar (PR) instruments and showed heaviest rainfall southwest of the center, and in fragmented bands of thunderstorms northeast of the center. In both of those places rainfall was in excess of 50 mm/2 inches per hour. More information. Image Credit: ESA/NASA/Samantha Cristoforetti
Nope, this image is not upside down. It's an oblique space-station's eye view of Typhoon Maysak - and the thin blue line across the bottom is the edge of Earth's atmosphere. (Image from NASA) Maysak hit Cat 5 yesterday (March 31, 2014) - and that's no April Fool joke .

Cosmopolitan magazine may be known for celebrity interviews, sex quizzes, and women-focused lifestyle tips but UK Cosmo has publicly released a mock-up cover design that shows just how much women's magazines are changing focus — and just how much potential they have to be an incredibly strong vehicle for change. The mock-up cover they released, was designed to raise awareness about violence against women, and specifically to be used as a tool in an ongoing campaign for the UK to establish a day of remembrance for victims of honor killings. The cover, wrapped in plastic, shows an almost-blurred black and white image of a woman suffocating inside. The text on the bottom left states, "Shafilea was suffocated by her parents in front of her siblings." An honor killing. The image (shot by Erin Mulvehill and designed by Leo Burnett Change) was designed to honor the life of Shafilea Ahmed, a 17-yea-old British-Pakistani woman who was suffocated to death with a ...
Karma Nirvana, a UK charity that helps victims of honour-based violence, which is running in limited editions of the February issue of Cosmopolitan magazine in the UK. The cover design features a plastic wraparound encasing an image of a woman's face who appears to be suffocating, as well as text about Shafilea Ahmed, the 17-year-old British-Pakistani woman who was murdered by her parents in 2004. Bleak but powerful work by Leo Burnett Change.
'Cosmopolitan' UK Cover Raises Awareness About Honor Killings With Suffocation Imagery — And Boy Is It Powerful
To help raise awareness against so-called honour killings, the agency mocked up a Cosmopolitan magazine cover featuring Shafilea Ahmed, whose parents suffocated her with a plastic bag after she refused to enter into an arranged marriage. It’s difficult to get hard-hitting right, but Leo Burnett have managed it here with real credibility.

Massive plumes of gas create a wicked witch profile in the sky in this image taken by the WISE infrared telescope.
The appropriately named Witch Head Nebula truly looks like a witch screaming out into the void of space. The conjurer even has green skin, a crooked nose and a pointy chin in this photo taken by NASA's Wide-Field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE). If you want to try to spot the Witch's Nebula this Halloween, look to the constellation Orion's "knee" to possibly spot the cosmic witch. The nebula itself is hundreds of light-years from Earth.

Screaming Space Witch Nebula
Happy Halloween! A witch appears to be screaming out into space in this image from NASA. The infrared portrait shows the “Witch Head nebula,” named after its resemblance to the profile of a wicked witch. Astronomers say the billowy clouds of the nebula, where baby stars are brewing, are being lit up by massive stars. The Witch Head nebula is located in the Name A Star Live constellation Orion, just off the famous hunter's knee. Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech

This image of Saturn could not have been taken from Earth. No Earth based picture could possibly view the night side of Saturn and the corresponding shadow cast across Saturn's rings. Since Earth is much closer to the Sun than Saturn, only the day side of the ringed planet is visible from the Earth. In fact, this image mosaic was taken earlier this month by the robotic Cassini spacecraft now orbiting Saturn.
Comprised of 36 raw shots from the Cassini spacecraft, this jaw-dropping mosaic of Saturn provides one of the clearest images of some of the planet's attributes. The hi-res version (http://goo.gl/66NeHb) simply astounds. "You can see the bizarre hexagonal north polar vortex, the six-sided jet stream flowing around Saturn. The subtle but beautiful bands mark the cloud tops of Saturn’s atmosphere." (Read More: http://goo.gl/wnGkIf) Photo by NASA | JPL | Space Science Institute | Gordan Ugarkovic

As NASA's Dawn spacecraft takes off for its next destination, this mosaic synthesizes some of the best views the spacecraft had of the giant asteroid Vesta. Dawn studied Vesta from July 2011 to September 2012. The towering mountain at the south pole - more than twice the height of Mount Everest - is visible at the bottom of the image. The set of three craters known as the "snowman" can be seen at the top left.

Image of asteroid Vesta by the Dawn spacecraft. Vesta's located between Mars and Jupiter in our Solar System's main asteroid belt. SInce Vesta's from the early years of the Solar System, it gives evidence of a bumpy and chaotic life. The surface shows heavy cratering and troughs cut by massive impacts. Since the asteroid has low gravity, features include a large mountain (image bottom) that's twice the height of Mount Everest! Now Dawn's on the way to Ceres, the largest body in the belt.

Clues to the Growth of the Colossus in Coma A team of astronomers has discovered enormous arms of hot gas in the Coma cluster of galaxies by using NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory and ESA’s XMM-Newton. These features, which span at least half a million light years, provide insight into how the Coma cluster has grown through mergers of smaller groups and clusters of galaxies to become one of the largest structures in the universe held together by gravity.

Dwarf Galaxy Caught Ramming Into a Large Spiral Galaxy Observations with NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory have revealed a massive cloud of multimillion-degree gas in a galaxy about 60 million light years from Earth. The hot gas cloud is likely caused by a collision between a dwarf galaxy and a much larger galaxy called NGC 1232. If confirmed, this discovery would mark the first time such a collision has been detected only in X-rays, and could have implications ...
Dwarf Galaxy Caught Ramming Into a Large Spiral Galaxy. #Space #NASA
This interacting galaxy duo is collectively called Arp 142. The pair contains the disturbed, star-forming spiral galaxy NGC 2936, along with its elliptical companion, NGC 2937 at lower left. Once part of a flat, spiral disk, the orbits of the galaxy's stars have become scrambled due to gravitational tidal interactions with the other galaxy. This warps the galaxy's orderly spiral, and interstellar gas is strewn out into giant tails like stretched taffy.

A lunar eclipse as viewed by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, with a model of the moon from NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter replacing the lunar shadow. Two or three times a year, NASA’s SDO observes the moon traveling across the sun, blocking its view. The moon’s crisp horizon can be seen up against the sun, because the moon does not have an atmosphere. (At other times of the year, when Earth blocks SDO’s view, the Earth’s horizon looks fuzzy due to its atmosphere.)
