Spectacular images of a gigantic crater on the moon were captured recently by a low-skimming NASA satellite.
A portion of the Lagoon nebula imaged by Argentinean astronomers Julia Arias and Rodolfo Barbá using the Gemini South telescope with the Gemini Multiple-Object Spectrograph.
Expedition 28 Astronaut Ron Garan tweeted: "How I spent my last day in #space.
This artist's concept shows NASA's Dawn spacecraft orbiting the giant asteroid Vesta.
This artist's conception illustrates Kepler-22b, a planet known to comfortably circle in the habitable zone of a sun-like star. It is the first planet that NASA's Kepler mission has confirmed to orbit in a star's habitable zone
Scientists think that a giant asteroid, which broke up long ago in the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, eventually made its way to Earth and led to the extinction of the dinosaurs.
The hazy and aptly named Fine Ring Nebula, shown here, is an unusual planetary nebula.
NASA's Dawn spacecraft obtained this image of the giant asteroid Vesta with its framing camera on July 24, 2011.
The spectacular new photo shows the galactic smash-up, called VV 340, in the early stages of collision.
This artist's concept shows the closest known planetary system to our own--Epsilon Eridani. Observations from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope show that the system hosts two asteroid belts, in addition to previously identified candidate planets and an outer comet ring..
This image shows X-rays from Chandra and optical data from the VLT of the galaxy NGC 3115. Using the Chandra data, the flow of hot gas toward the supermassive black hole in the center of this galaxy has been imaged.
