the golden record images -Famous "Voyager 1" spacecraft was launched by NASA on September 5, 1977. Despite its primary missions (to study the outer Solar System and interstellar medium) the spacecraft had another – to send a message to other life forms in the universe.
An annotated illustration of the interstellar medium. The solar gravity lens marks the point where a conceptual spacecraft in interstellar space could use our sun as a gigantic lens, allowing zoomed-in close-ups of planets orbiting other stars.
If you could travel at 99.9% the speed of light, how long would it take you to get to the Moon? Mars? The nearest star? Hop aboard our interstellar starship and find out! http://futurism.com/images/traveling-near-the-speed-of-light-infographic/?utm_campaign=coschedule&utm_source=pinterest&utm_medium=Futurism&utm_content=Traveling%20Near%20The%20Speed%20Of%20Light%20%5BInfographic%5D
The Triangulum Emission Nebula - NGC 604Located 2.7 million light-years away in the constellation Triangulum lies the massive nebula known as NGC 604. Though such nebulae are common in galaxies, this one is particularly large, nearly 1,500 light-years across, and it dominates a portion of galaxy M33’s spiral arm. Nebula NGC 604 is also an area of intense star formation. At the heart of the nebula there are over 200 hot stars, most are more massive than our Sun with the largest being up...
