Halo of the Cat’s Eye The Cat’s Eye Nebula (NGC 6543) is one of the best known planetary nebulae in the sky. Its haunting symmetries are seen in the very central region of this stunning false-color picture, processed to reveal the enormous but extremely faint halo of gaseous material, over three light-years across, which surrounds the brighter, familiar planetary nebula. Made with data from the Nordic Optical Telescope in the Canary Islands, the composite picture shows extended emis...

#sgairshow I was almost done with lunch when I saw the @Airbus A350 being moved out of the static aircraft display area. The moment I saw it move, I made a hasty dash to where I knew the aircraft would pass. The security personnel wouldn’t let me go beyond pass the security barriers but let me videotape and photograph this moment, so long it was within their eyesight. I may not have the opportunity to visit the A350’s interiors, where it was complete with testing systems, but I am...

For the first time, all 15 shuttle main engines are in the shop at the same time, being prepped for shipment to NASA’s Stennis Space Center in Mississippi, where they are being repurposed for use on NASA’s next generation heavy lift rocket, the Space Launch System.

A slice of stars The thin, glowing streak slicing across this image cuts a lonely figure, with only a few foreground stars and galaxies in the distant background for company. However, this is all a case of perspective; lying out of frame is another nearby spiral. Together, these two galaxies make up a pair, moving through space together and keeping one another company. The subject of this Hubble image is called NGC 3501, with NGC 3507 as its out-of-frame companion. The two galaxies look very di...
