10 Iconic Images of the Earth from Space

‘Earth Rise’ as Seen from Lunar Surface This incredible image of the Earth rise was taken during lunar orbit by the Apollo 11 mission crew i.

Can you imagine looking up into the sky and seeing this? It would be so beautiful!

If Saturn was close to Earth…

Except the asteroid belt would collide with Earth, and the planet would be too close as not to do the same. Plus the gravity would be flubbed up and Earth would orbit Saturn.

♥ What if the other planets were as close as the moon

What if the other planets were as close as the moon. -- I wonder if the reason the more distant planets are so much larger is because they are further away from the sun. The planets that are closer to the sun seem to all be much much smaller.

From the far, far reaches of the Saturnian system, the Cassini spacecraft captures the most peculiar, chilling and downright hair-raising sounds of the ringed world’s intense radio emissions.  The radio waves, recorded by the spacecraft’s radio and plasma instrument and converted into audio recordings, are closely related to the auroras near Saturn’s poles. These auroras are similar to Earth's northern and southern lights. (May 2, 2016)

Spooky Sounds from Saturn

Why is Saturn partly blue? The featured picture of Saturn approximates what a human would see if hovering close to the giant ringed world. The image was taken in 2006 March by the robot Cassini spacecraft now orbiting Saturn. Here Saturn's majestic rings appear directly only as a thin vertical line. The rings show their complex structure in the dark shadows they create on the image left. Saturn's fountain moon Enceladus, only about 500 kilometers across, is seen as the bump in the plane of…

NASA flight planners have a long history of murdering their favorite space probes. They plan the ships, build the ships—and at some point wind up killing the ships. On Sept. 15, just before 8 a.m. ET, the Cassini Saturn probe followed its sisters into history, plunging to its end in Saturn's atmosphere. Long before Cassini left Earth on Oct. 15, 1997, astronomers knew that Saturn's largest moon, Titan, was probably rich in liquid methane and ethane—hydrocarbons essential for life as we know…

Tiger Stripes of Enceladus  Pictured here is a high resolution Cassini image of Enceladus from a close flyby. Do underground oceans vent through the tiger stripes (in false-color blue) on Saturn's moon Enceladus? The long features dubbed tiger stripes are known to spew ice from the moon's icy interior into space, creating a cloud of fine ice particles over the moon's south pole and creating Saturn's mysterious E-ring.
