thedemon-hauntedworld: Face-on spiral galaxy NGC 3982 NGC 3982 is located about 68 million light-years away in the constellation Ursa Major. The galaxy spans about 30,000 light-years, one-third of the size of our Milky Way galaxy. This colour image is composed of exposures taken by the Hubble Space Telescope’s Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2), the Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS), and the Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3). The observations were taken between March 2000 and August 2009. The rich...

operatorsgonnaoperate: Dragon in the Skies. The unique Saab 35 “Draken”, designed during the cold war to act as a High speed bomber interceptor and fighter was adopted by several countries for its unique ability to operate off of reinforced roads. Its design incorporates a very distinctive “double delta”, which gives it superior maneuverability at low speeds. And though it was never designed to be a fighter aircraft, its double delta design had helped it to become a capable dogfighter.

Swirling bands of light and dark clouds on Jupiter are seen in this image made by citizen scientists using data from our Juno spacecraft. Each of the alternating light and dark atmospheric bands in this image is wider than Earth, and each rages around Jupiter at hundreds of miles (km) per hour. The lighter areas are regions where gas is rising, and the darker bands are regions where gas is sinking. This image was acquired on May 19, 2017 from about 20,800 miles (33,400km) above Jupiter’s c...
