How many more reasons do I need to go into space?

The center of the Milky Way tastes like raspberries and smells like Captain Morgan. Astronomers researching the giant dust cloud in the middle of the galaxy found the chemical ethyl formate, which gives raspberries their flavor and smells like rum.

The proposed park would protect artifacts left on the moon by NASA astronauts, not the lunar surface itself, but it still raises legal and logistical questions.

NGC 4258 ( M106)

Galactic Pyrotechnics on Display Anomalous arms are seen in this composite image of NGC 4258 from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observator, NSF's Karl Jansky Very Large Array, NASA's Hubble Space Telescope and Spitzer Space Telescope.

This artist's concept allows us to imagine what it would be like to stand on the surface of the exoplanet TRAPPIST-1f, located in the TRAPPIST-1 system in the constellation Aquarius. The TRAPPIST-1 planets are remarkably close to each other. The star they orbit, an ultra-cool dwarf, would appear about three times larger than our own sun does in Earth's skies. / Photograph by NASA / JPL-CALTECH / T. PYLE (IPAC)

The expanding debris from the explosion of a massive star, at speeds of 20 million kilometers per hr (12 million mph), captured by the Chandra X-ray Observatory

infinity-imagined: “ Supernova remnants imaged with the Chandra X-Ray space telescope.

Our bodies are made of remnants of stars and massive explosions in the galaxies, authors say.

"Massive Star Makes Waves".The giant star Zeta Ophiuchi, a young, large and hot star located around 370 light-years away, is having a 'shocking' effect on the surrounding dust clouds in this infrared image from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope.
