The blue oasis we call home: Earth is photographed with a high-definition 121megapixel camera - creating the sharpest image of our planet yet    Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2142884/Earth-Stunning-picture-Russian-weather-satellite-shows-definitive-image-planet.html#ixzz1uei5jjGT

This magnificent image is a portrait of the Earth taken in one single shot. At 121 megapixels, it is the highest resolution image of the planet ever and was taken by the geostationary Russian weather satellite the Electro-L.

Louisiana loud boom: Earsplitting boom shakes the ground. Sonic UFO, meteorite? - A loud boom that rattled both the ground and residents of Louisiana and shook the earth around 4:30 p.m. Monday – thought by some to be a sonic UFO, others to be meteorite slamming into the ground – has yet to be identified. The National Weather Service has reported that a dense debris field, over 1,000 high, had been spotted in the area near Shreveport, where the boom was heard.

Russia's Popigai Meteor Crash Linked to Mass Extinction — The Eocene extinction — long blamed on climate change — now has another prime suspect: an "impact winter.

This image from NASA's Cassini spacecraft is one of the highest-resolution views ever taken of Saturn's moon Pandora. Pandora (52 miles, 84 kilometers across) orbits Saturn just outside the narrow F ring. The spacecraft captured the image during its closest-ever flyby of Pandora on Dec. 18, 2016, during the third of its grazing passes by the outer edges of Saturn's main rings.

For the first time, researchers are seeing how white dwarf systems evolve directly confirmed in the night sky using NASA's Kepler space telescope. The star, white dwarf WD 1145+017, is currently destroying and disintegrating an orbiting planet bit by bit. Scientists are watching the death of a solar system. This particular white dwarf star is about 570 light-years from Earth in the constellation Virgo. (Oct 22, 2015; Journal of Science)

When the Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft flew by Saturn in 1980 and 1981, they were able to pay only fleeting attention to Titan, the second largest moon in the solar system (larger even than the planet Mercury) and the only solar system moon with an appreciable atmosphere. These images are from subsequent Titan flybys in 2005 and 2006. - Image credit: NASA / JPL / University of Arizona
