The Milky Way - 84 Million Stars in 9 Billion Pixels via petapixel: The image is a composite of thousands of photos shot by the VISTA survey camera by Astronomers at the European Southern Observatory’s Paranal Observatory in Chile.
In this image, an expanding shell of debris called SNR is left behind after a massive star exploded in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy to the Milky Way. Multimillion degree gas is seen in X-rays - NASA/CXC/SAO
Goes High Def to Revisit the Iconic 'Pillars of Creation' This NASA Hubble Space Telescope image, taken in near-infrared light, transforms the pillars into eerie, wispy silhouettes, which are seen against a background of myriad stars.
Supernovae are some of the brightest objects in the sky, outshining entire galaxies with the fleeting light they produce. The huge explosions then spread gas and material over a wide area (remnants of a supernova around Cassiopeia is pictured above)
Scientists discover planets which travel up to 30million miles per hour after coming into contact with black holes
