Cosmic Sparklers

Prior to launch, the team laid out the parachute and hang lines in front of SPIDER, seen in the distance. The long-duration balloon that would carry SPIDER into the sky is attached to the end of the parachute shown here in the foreground.

SPIDER Readied for Launch

A quartet of Saturn's moons, from tiny to huge, surround and are embedded within the planet's rings in this Cassini composition. Saturn's largest moon, Titan, in the background, and the moon's north polar hood is clearly visible.

In, Around, Beyond Rings

The Cassini spacecraft takes an angled view toward Saturn, showing the southern reaches of the planet with the rings on a dramatic diagonal. The moon Enceladus appears as a small, bright speck in the lower left of the image.

In this image of PSR B1509-58 (about 170,000 light-years from Earth), X-rays from NASA's Chandra in gold are seen along with infrared data from NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE).

Face Illusion in the Cosmic Clouds

Like a giant eye for the giant planet, Saturn's great vortex at its north pole appears to stare back at Cassini as NASA's Cassini spacecraft stares at it.

Speedster Star Shocks the Galaxy

The comparison from NASA's Hubble telescope and Chandra X-ray Observatory highlights how different the universe can look when viewed in other wavelengths of light. M82 is located 12 million light-years away in the Ursa Major constellation.

Neptune Full Disk

The 'Dumbbell nebula,' also known as Messier 27, pumps out infrared light in this image from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope. Planetary nebulae are now known to be the remains of stars that once looked a lot like our sun.

Weighing in on the Dumbbell Nebula

This image shows the Large Magellanic Cloud galaxy in infrared light as seen by ESA's Herschel Space Observatory and NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope. The brightest center-left region is called 30 Doradus, or the Tarantula Nebula.

Dusty Space Cloud

A dying star, called the Helix nebula, is shown surrounded by the tracks of asteroids in an image captured by NASA's WISE. Skirting around the edges of the Helix nebula are the footprints of asteroids marching across the field of view.
