A new image released from the Hubble Space Telescope is granting viewers a stunning view that encapsulates the beauty and complexity of the famous Veil Nebula. The ghostly nebula represents the only evidence of a tumultuous supernova that marked the death of an enormous star with a mass roughly 20 times that of our Sun.
During a planned calibration maneuver, ESA's Mars Express spacecraft has captured a stunning shot of a huge swathe of the Martian environment. The image, snapped on February 25, captures a number of impressive features present on the surface of the Red Planet, including the Martian south pole, an enormous basin and two vast channels.
