Remarkable Macro Photographs of Ice Structures and Snowflakes
Messier 77 Hubble Space Telescope
Andre van der Hoeven (Netherlands) combined different datasets in the archives of the Hubble Space Telescope to create this stunning image of spiral galaxy Messier 77.
Twin Explosions In Gigantic Dusty Potato Crisp
The beautiful edge-on spiral galaxy NGC 3190 with tightly wound arms and a warped shape that makes it resemble a gigantic potato crisp, as seen by ESO’s Very Large Telescope. Supernova SN 2002bo is found in between the ‘V’ of the dust lanes in the south-western part of NGC 3190. SN 2002cv is obscured by a large amount of dust and is therefore not visible. Its position is however indicated on the above image
A Milky Way look-alike, NGC 6744
This picture of the nearby galaxy NGC 6744 was taken with the Wide Field Imager on the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at La Silla. The large spiral galaxy is similar to the Milky Way, making this image look like a picture postcard of our own galaxy sent from extragalactic space. The picture was created from exposures taken through four different filters that passed blue, yellow-green, red light, and the glow coming from hydrogen gas. These are shown in this picture as blue, green, orange and red, respectively.
Dwarfed by Saturn
Saturn’s moon Mimas appears near Saturn, dwarfed by its parent planet in this image. Mimas (246 miles, or 396 kilometers across) appears tiny compared to the storms clearly visible in far northern and southern hemispheres of Saturn. This view looks toward the unilluminated side of the rings from about 18 degrees below the ringplane. North on Saturn is up and rotated 27 degrees to the left.
Do you have any tips on staying motivated with your studies? I'm currently in year 12 but i'm starting to become very lazy and I am very much happy with my subjects
