This artist's concept illustrates the frenzied activity at the core of our Milky Way galaxy. The galactic center hosts a supermassive black hole in the region known as Sagittarius A*, or Sgr A*, with a mass of about four million times that of our sun.

A new day dawns on Saturn as the part of the planet is seen emerging once more into the Sun's light by NASA's Cassini orbiter. With an estimated rotation period of 10 hours and 40 minutes, Saturn's days and nights are much shorter than those on Earth.

This set of images from NASA's Cassini mission shows the turbulent power of a monster Saturn storm. The visible-light image in the back, obtained on Feb. 25, 2011 shows the turbulent clouds churning across the face of Saturn.

This view of the twilight sky and Martian horizon taken by NASA's Curiosity Mars rover includes Earth as the brightest point of light in the night sky. Earth is a little left of center in the image, and our moon is just below Earth.

This false-color image of Peru's Ubinas volcano was acquired on April 14, 2014, by NASA's UAVSAR. Located about 100 miles (160 kilometers) from the city of Arequipa, Ubinas is Peru's most active volcano.

This image from the Mars Hand Lens Imager on NASA's Mars rover Curiosity shows the patch of rock cleaned by the first use of the rover's Dust Removal Tool (DRT). The tool is a motorized, wire-bristle brush on the turret at the end of the rover's arm.

This image was taken by the Optical, Spectroscopic, and Infrared Remote Imaging System, Rosetta's main onboard scientific imaging system, on Sept. 10, 2014. Jets of cometary activity can be seen along almost the entire body of the comet.

Rosetta Comet Spreads its Jets

The descent of its comet lander Philae was captured by ESA's Rosetta spacecraft's main camera as the lander approached -- and then rebounded off -- the comet's surface.

A bubbling cauldron of star birth is highlighted in this image from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope. Massive stars have blown bubbles, or cavities, in the dust and gas -- a violent process that triggers both the death and birth of stars.
