Get ready for an intergalactic (ok, maybe intragalactic) adventure! Pop Chart Lab has distilled more than half a century of space travel into a beautiful print. The Chart of Cosmic Exploration features hand-illustrated renderings of every orbiter, lander, rover, flyby, and impactor to ever successfully slip the surly bonds of Earth's orbit. Plus all of our pretty-cool planets in our pretty-great Solar System. #colossal

This planetary nebula, Mz3, is being cast off by a star similar to our Sun. The 1000-kilometer per second speed of the expelled gas, the light-year long length of the structure, and the magnetism of the star visible at the nebula's center, all imply Mz3 is hiding a second, dimmer star that orbits close in to the bright star. A competing hypothesis holds that the central star's own spin and magnetic field are channeling the gas. (ESA, NASA's Hubble, JPL-CalTech)
