I WANT TO EAT PLANETS.
I WANT TO EAT PLANETS.
Earth, Jupiter and Venus from the skyline of Mars!
my heart feels like it’s going to explode. oh my god, this is absolutely incredible.
I don’t understand how people can look at these photos and be like “meh, whatever”.
It will always be insanely cool. I mean that is our planet. From ANOTHER FUCKING PLANET.

This is literally the best thing I’ve seen on my dash in forever.
Screenshots I got from Ustream broadcast. TOUCHDOWN CONFIRMED. Receiving information from the surface of Mars!! Congrats JPL!! Images coming down!
Nebulae by Fabian Oefner
Oefner on his work:
What might look like a giant nebula or a distant galaxy at first glance, is in reality the glowing ends of a fibre glass lamp.
The images were created by taking long-time exposures of several fibre glass lamps (exactly, those ugly-looking lamps, that were extremely popular in the 90`s) moving around in a darkened room. Afterwards, severeal images were multiplied in photoshop to achieve the density of such a structure.
What I personally like about this project is how you can create an illusionist space with such simple means, that are familiar to everybody.
Distance: 5,000,000 Light Years
On visual inspection M94 appears to be a series of ring like structures. As one of the closest starburst-ringed galaxies it possesses one of the highest optical surface brightness nuclei known.
At its center is a 1400 light year stellar bar which has been an important influence on the overall morphology of the galaxy. Surrounding the central bar is an inner stellar disk with a radius of about 2300 light years. Further out at a radius of about 3500 light years is an almost perfectly circular starburst ring.
False color image of Jupiter’s satellite moon Callisto taken by spacecraft Voyager 2 on July 7, 1979.
Named after the Greek mythological figure of Callisto, Greek: Καλλιστώ) is a moon of the planet Jupiter. It was discovered in 1610 by Galileo Galilei. It is the third-largest moon in the Solar System and the second largest in the Jovian system, after Ganymede. Callisto has about 99% the diameter of the planet Mercury but only about a third of its mass. It is the fourth Galilean moon of Jupiter by distance, with an orbital radius of about 1,880,000 km.
