China’s Tianwen-1 lander and Zhurong rover touched down on the Martian plain Utopia Planitia on May 14, 2021 after spending around three months in orbit around the Red Planet. While the China Space Agency shared images of the rover and lander (including a cute family portrait taken by a wireless remote camera), NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance …

Before and after satellite images of Queensland’s Scenic Rim region have laid bare the record-breaking devastation caused by rainfall in the area. Mapping firm Soar, based in Perth, used images of the northern Scenic Rim region from the European Space Agency’s Sentinel satellites which show with shocking clarity how severe flooding has occurred around Warrill …

Credit: NASA Goddard Space Flight Center NASA’s Parker Solar Probe has taken its first visible light images of the surface of Venus from space. Covered in thick clouds, the surface of Venus is usually hidden from view. But on two recent flybys of the planet, Parker used his Wide Field Imager, or WISPR, to image …

A new image from NASA Hubble has shown a colorful spiral galaxy that has an explosive past. Apart from this, NASA Hubble Space Telescope and Chandra Observatory also captured the burning wings of the so-called Butterfly Nebula. NASA’s Hubble image shows stunning view of massive spiral galaxy To further emphasize this spiral galaxy, the space …

NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope is currently set to launch and become the most powerful telescope in space. But how will its photos compare to those of Hubble? The Hubble Space Telescope was launched into low Earth orbit in April 1990. Over the next three decades, the famed observatory has broadened our view of the …

Evidence of a possible planet orbiting a star beyond the Milky Way galaxy has been spotted, NASA has revealed. NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory made the discovery, allowing further studies of exoplanets further away than ever before, a statement posted on the US space agency’s website said. This possible candidate exoplanet is located in the spiral …

With the charming name of SDSS J0146-0929, it is a cluster of galaxies – a monstrous collection of hundreds of galaxies all chained together in the unwavering grip of gravity. The mass of this galaxy cluster is large enough to seriously distort the spacetime around it, creating weird, looping curves that almost encircle the center …

Enlarge | ESO displays 42 of the largest asteroids in the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter (orbits not to scale). It is the largest cluster of asteroids ever to be seen with so much detail. Notice that they are all different. Image via ESO / M. Kornmesser / Vernazza et al. / MISTRAL …

Stunning satellite images show the recent gigantic hells that devastated one of the coldest regions on the planet. Last month, the fires burning across Siberia – known for its cold, harsh winters – would have been bigger than all the fires burning across the world combined. The images were released by the National Earth Observation …

This animation shows a series of views of the Sun captured with the Extreme Ultraviolet Imager (EUI) on ESA/NASA’s Solar Orbiter on May 30, 2020. They show the appearance of the Sun at a wavelength of 17 nanometers, which is in the extreme ultraviolet region of the electromagnetic spectrum. Images at this wavelength reveal the …

Just four days after entering orbit, the European Space Agency’s Sentinel-2A satellite delivered its first images of Earth. Acquired on June 27, 2015, this first image of Sentinel-2A covers the Po Valley, framed by the Alps to the north and the coastal mountains of France and Italy to the south. Scratches observed over water are …

Sentinel-2A sees Italy as a patchwork of bright colors. Copernicus data (2015) / ESA Earth is already a colorful place, but it becomes surreal when viewed through the eyes of the Sentinel-2A satellite of the European Space Agency. Where human eyes could see swaths of green across the Po Valley in northern Italy, Sentinel-2A sees …
