On October Juno flew by Earth using the home planet's gravity to get a boost needed to reach Jupiter. The JunoCam caught this image of Earth, and other instruments were tested to ensure they work as designed during a close planetary encounter.

The near-Earth asteroid 2011 currently has an impact probability of 1 in 625 for Feb. said Donald Yeomans, head of the Near-Earth Object Observations Program at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif.

Only 15 minutes after its closest approach to Pluto on July 14, 2015, NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft looked back toward the sun and captured this near-sunset view of the rugged, icy mountains and flat ice plains extending to Pluto’s horizon. The smooth expanse of the informally named icy plain Sputnik Planum (right) is flanked on the left by rugged mountains up to 11,000 feet (3,500 meters) high, including the informally named Norgay Montes in the foreground and Hillary Montes on the…

Crescent Mimas

Crescent Mimas “ A thin sliver of Mimas is illuminated, the long shadows showing off its many craters, indicators of the moon’s violent history. The most famous evidence of a collision on Mimas.

Diamond core - An exoplanet made entirely of diamonds was discovered this year by an international research team. Approximately five times the size of Earth, the small planet had mass similar to that of Jupiter. Scientists believe the short distance from its star coupled with the exoplanet’s mass means the planet, remnants of another star, is mostly crystalline carbon. http://myscienceacademy.org/2013/01/03/27-science-fictions-that-became-science-facts-in-2012/

In astronomers discovered a star composed entirely of diamond, measuring km across and 10 billion trillion trillion carats. 50 light years from Earth, the diamond star is classified as a crystallized white dwarf, the hot core that remains after

A giant high-pressure dome in the atmosphere, sitting over the Ohio Valley, is keeping the East Coast hot and humid. The high pressure blocks the jet stream's cooler air from reaching the region and, at the same time, pulls in hot, humid air from the Gulf of Mexico. The high pressure also keeps the skies clear, helping to raise temperatures, as can be seen from space in an image captured by the GOES East satellite
