Infographic: Who's Visiting Who? Every spacecraft currently exploring (or about to explore) a major solar system object (other than the Earth and Sun).

An eye-catching infographic of every spacecraft currently exploring (or about to explore) a major object other than the Earth and Sun in space. See our planets with our Range of telescopes from Celestron

The Syrtis Major Volcanic Province. Acquired by the High Resolution Stereo Camera on ESA’s Mars Express Satellite, this image depicts a detailed region of the Martian Nili Fossae Graben system. This system is an area of great interest to geologists due to the variety of its landscape. The graben system contains numerous troughs, plateaus, impact craters and depressions.

Focus: Moons

MOONS- Earth& moon is absolutely beautiful and pictures of others are amazing I hope that one day we will Be able to view the rest of the Universe.

Nasa has released an image taken by the probe's Visual and Infrared Spectrometer (Virs) to reveal distinct features such as volcanic vents and fresh craters. To highlight the geological features, the images have been overlain on a black and white mosaic from the Mercury Dual Imaging System (MDIS)

I chose a picture of the planet Jupiter to represent Hercules' father. I chose this picture in particular to show the great red spot of the planet which is actually a 300 year old massive storm that is twice the size of planet Earth. This describes Jupiter as he was a violent man in Metamorphoses with a stormy personality.

Planet Jupiter is named after Jupiter (the god) because it is the largest planet in the solar system, making it the king of all the planets.

Jupiter, it's good to see you again. NASA's Juno spacecraft returns 20 years after Galileo.

This is a photo of jupiter taken by NASA's Juno spacecraft returns 20 years after Galileo. This planet is named after Apollo's father.

An image taken by the Hubble Space Telescope shows the shadow of the Jovian moon Ganymede in the center of the Great Red Spot. At the time of the photo, Hubble was being used to monitor changes in Jupiter's immense Great Red Spot (GRS) storm.

Name a dog Jupiter. Jupe for short. Yes I want to name my dog Jupiter. Get over it! haha;)

Mass one-thousandth that of the Sun but is two and a half times the mass of all the other planets in our Solar System combined. Jupiter is classified as a gas giant along with Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.

When the Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft flew by Saturn in 1980 and 1981, they were able to pay only fleeting attention to Titan, the second largest moon in the solar system (larger even than the planet Mercury) and the only solar system moon with an appreciable atmosphere. These images are from subsequent Titan flybys in 2005 and 2006. - Image credit: NASA / JPL / University of Arizona

Nuvens de muitas cores de Júpiter são vistas nesta imagem da nossa nave espacial Juno como era correr para fora do planeta após a sua sétima passagem próxima em 19 de Maio de 2017, de cerca de 29.100 milhas (46.900 km) acima dos topos das nuvens. Dê uma olhada: http://go.nasa.gov/2sBD1SQ

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…

Jupiter

Jupiter is the largest planet in the solar system. It has 67 moons which orbit around it. The spot in the lower left is the Great Red Spot, a giant high-pressure storm that has existed since at least the century.

THE big question ... there is water on Mars but are there hot tubs? A primitive ocean on Mars held more water than Earth’s Arctic Ocean, and covered a greater portion of the planet’s surface than the Atlantic Ocean does on Earth, according to new results published today. http://www.eso.org/public/news/eso1509/
