Artist's Concept of Deep Space 1 Encounter with Comet Borrelly

The solid nucleus of comet Borrelly is barely resolved in this image from NASA's Deep Space 1, enhanced to reveal the highly collimated dust extending towards the bottom left corner of the picture.

Early Close Image of Comet Borrelly

This single frame from a sequence of images shows sunspots as viewed by NASA's Curiosity Mars rover from June 27 to July 8, 2015; the rover was in position to see the opposite side of the sun from the side facing Earth during this period.

Deep Space 1 Using its Ion Engine (Artist's Concept)

Flaring, active regions of our sun are highlighted in this image combining observations from several telescopes. During the observations, microflares went off, which are smaller versions of the larger flares that also erupt from the sun's surface.

Close-up View of an Active Region of the Sun, March 23, 2007

NASA's Extreme Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope aboard ESA's SOHO spacecraft took this image of a huge, handle-shaped prominence in 1999. Prominences are huge clouds of relatively cool dense plasma suspended in the Sun's hot, thin corona.
