The Mars rover Spirit captured this image on March 8, 2004. It was the first image of our world taken from another planet beyond our Earth-moon system.

This is the first image ever taken of Earth from the surface of a planet beyond the Moon, taken by the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit one hour before sunrise on the Martian day, or sol, of its mission. Image credit: NASA/JPL/Cornell/Texas A

On Oct 19, 2014, a comet had a near miss with Mars. Comet C/2013 A1 (Siding Spring) passed closer to the red planet than any comet has ever passed to Earth in recorded history. Taking advantage of this unique opportunity to study the close interaction of a comet and a planet, humanity currently has five active spacecraft orbiting Mars. These and the two active rovers on the Martian surface have taken data and images that will be downloaded to Earth and likely studied for years…

Photos of the surface of Mars from the rover Opportunity

NASA has released a new panorama from its Mars Exploration Rover 2012 Opportunity, showing the terrain where the robot spent the four-month Martian winter.

Esta fué la primera imagen tomada de la tierra desde el espacio. En la Navidad de 1968 el Apollo 8 se encontraba orbitando la Luna. Fué la primera nave en hacerlo. Su tripulación, Frank Borman, James A. Lovell, Jr. y William A. Anders tenían como misión fotografiar la superficie de la luna. Tomaron fotos, investigaron futuros posibles lugares de aterrizaje, y hasta en la Nochebuena leyeron el Génesis para los telespectadores de la Tierra. Pero algo les llamó mucho más su atención. Una vez de…

Imagenes que hicieron historia

"Earthrise" is the name given to NASA image the "first jaw-dropping picture of Earth from outer space." It was taken on this day in 1968 by astronaut William Anders during the Apollo 8 mission, the first manned voyage to orbit the Moon.

During its flight, the Galileo spacecraft returned images of the Earth and Moon. Separate images of the Earth and Moon were combined to generate this view. The Galileo spacecraft took the images in 1992 on its way to explore the Jupiter system in 1995-97. The image shows a partial view of the Earth centered on the Pacific Ocean about latitude 20 degrees south. The west coast of South America can be observed as well as the Caribbean; swirling white cloud patterns indicate storms in the…

Moons of the Solar System - A Size Chart

Galactic Constellations: The Moons of the Solar System. Dan Matutina's guide to the size of moons in the solar system for Visual New's Data+Design Project.

Moons in our solar system: I recall when I was a kid, there were 32 moons in our solar system. The answer now (2013): 146 officially, with another 25 awaiting official recognition from the IAU. A list of all of them runs down the right side of the page while the bulk of the page looks at eight of the most notable moons in the solar system. A lot of fun to research and build and -- I hope -- to read. July 10, 2013.
