This is part of the Orion Nebula taken by Stellar friend Henrik Schmidt. Gorgeous, looks like art! He says "This complex is called OMC-1 and it is only visible on pictures with long exposure. The Orion nebula is visible because it is being illuminated from the trapezium cluster and some other bright stars." via Henrik Schmidt at Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=594868577190418=o.206262756105478=1=nf
Dermoscopy_tutorial- An educational web site on dermoscopy where physicians dealing with skin tumors may learn how to improve early diagnosis of melanoma using dermoscopy. The use of dermoscopy has uncovered a new and fascinating morphological dimension of pigmented skin lesions thus increasing the effectiveness of clinical diagnostic tools to differentiate melanoma from other pigmented skin lesions.
Detailed views of the Orion Bullet region In each image pair, left is the Altair 2007 image and right is the new 2012 GeMS image. This close-up view emphasizes the gain realized by MCAO and GeMS compared to normal AO (Altair)
One of Hottest Known Stars Captured in Hubble Photograph. This photograph from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope presents the first clear view of one of the hottest known stars, the central star of nebula NGC 2440 in our Milky Way galaxy.
A million-degree plasma cloud in the Orion Nebula. The emission colored in blue shows X-ray emission from a hot plasma cloud in the extended regions of the Orion Nebula, detected by the XMM-Newton satellite.
The Lagoon Nebula. Shown here is a portion of the Lagoon nebula imaged by Argentinean astronomers Julia Arias and Rodolfo Barbá using the Gemini South telescope with the Gemini Multiple-Object Spectrograph.
NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope finds a delicate flower in the Ring Nebula, as shown in this image. The outer shell of this planetary nebula looks surprisingly similar to the delicate petals of a camellia blossom.
Using the galaxy cluster Abell 383 (center) as a "gravitational lens," astronomers identified a galaxy so far away we see it as it was 950 million years after the Big Bang. It is visible as two tiny dots on either side of Abell Distant objects seen t
