Tupolev Tu-141 A Soviet transonic turbojet reconnaissance drone that flew in the late 1970s and 1980s. Soviet. Reconnaissance. Drone. Awesome. It could carry film cameras, infrared imagers, Earth observation imagers, and imaging radar.

Bar none This new Hubble image displays an almost face-on view of the galaxy NGC 1084, a spiral galaxy with no bar-shaped structure of stars at its center. Spiral galaxies lacking a central bar make up about half of all such galaxies. Astronomers have observed five supernova explosions which took place in NGC 1084 over the past half century. The supernova remnants bear names reflecting the year in which they took place: 1963P, 1996an, 1998dl, 2009H and 2012ec. Image credit: NASA, ESA, and S. S...

Note the dark spirals of dust, glowing red emission nebulae, and countless clusters of young, blue stars. The center of this galaxy has a bar of stars, and is thought to have a supermassive black hole. (more at APOD/NASA). Image Credit: Hubble Legacy Archive, NASA, ESA; Processing & Copyright: Steve Cooper
