Explore Caught Exploding, Exploding Meteor and more!

Picture This: Hurricanes and Wildfires from Space- Winds and fire wrought havoc this week as wildfires exploded in Northern California and Hurricane Odile became the most powerful storm to strike Baja California. The devastation of both events was caught in poignant and impactful photos. But other images captured more peaceful tableaus, including the beauty of landscapes erupting in a riot of autumnal color.

Hubble captures first-ever predicted exploding star

The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has captured the image of the first-ever predicted supernova explosion. The reappearance of the Refsdal supernova was calculated from different models of the galaxy cluster whose immense gravity is warping the supernova's light.

NASA just released close-up photos of the cataclysmic Antares rocket explosion and they're eerily beautiful. On Oct. 28 2014 the Aerospace manufacturer company Orbital ATK was scheduled to transport 5000 pounds of cargo inside of an unmanned Cygnus spacecraft to the International Space Station. Cygnus was strapped to an Antares rocket that exploded 15 seconds after lift off from a launch pad in Virginia. Later investigations revealed that the failure began with the rocket's two AJ26…

The Elusive Jellyfish Nebula: Normally faint and elusive, the Jellyfish Nebula is caught in this alluring telescopic view. Drifting near bright star Eta Geminorum, at the foot of a celestial twin, the Jellyfish Nebula is seen dangling tentacles from the bright arcing ridge of emission left of center. In fact, the cosmic jellyfish is part of bubble-shaped supernova remnant IC 443, the expanding debris cloud from a massive star that exploded. Light from the explosion first reached planet Earth…
