Lava flow entering the ocean at dawn, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, The Big Island, Hawaii USA Kilauea on the Big Island of Hawaii has been continuously erupting since the 1980s. Several months ago the lava flow reached the Pacific once again creating this dramatic meeting of earth and sea.

The IXS Enterprise, named after the iconic starship of the same name. This is a conceptual superluminal spacecraft designed by NASA scientist Dr. Harold G. White, revealed at SpaceVision 2013, designed for the goal of achieving warp travel. The conceptual spacecraft would be a modified version of the Alcubierre drive. Dr. White is currently running the White–Juday warp-field interferometer experiment in order to develop a proof of concept for Alcubierre-style warp travel, if possible. The Alcubierre drive uses exotic matter (not to be confused with antimatter) to travel faster than light. http://www.sciencealert.com/nasas-design-for-warp-drive-spaceship-is-amazing

"All astronauts who have flown wish that every human being had the opportunity to fly in space. There’s a spiritual feeling that comes over us when we see the whole Earth from above, when we realize that everything is one and that we’re all connected. There’s a consciousness shift. You look down and see the Earth in all its beauty, but beyond the Earth there’s nothing except billions of miles of empty black void. Within our solar system, we know that Earth is the solitary oasis of life. And who knows, maybe we’re also the solitary oasis of life in our galaxy, so that’s mentally and emotionally very profound.
We really get an impression of the fragility of the Earth and its ecosystems, so surely what’s most important is preservation of the human species. It’s not the borders between countries, it’s not the price of a barrel of oil, it’s not trade tariffs, it’s not illegal immigration. Earth is a tiny, fragile oasis of life, and what’s most important is human survival. An d you see that so clearly from orbit."

These particular space taxis haven't yet flown in space, but NASA has already made a dozen reservations.
NASA has awarded four more contracts to Boeing and to SpaceX for space taxi trips to and from the International Space Station – dependent on certification.

The most powerful firecrackers on Earth lit up the sky often this year.

Comet 45P Returns
Image Credit & Copyright: Fritz Helmut Hemmerich
https://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap170102.html

An old comet has returned to the inner Solar System. Not only is Comet 45P/Honda–Mrkos–Pajdušáková physically ancient, it was first discovered 13 orbits ago in 1948. Comet 45P spends most of its time out near the orbit of Jupiter and last neared the Sun in 2011. Over the past few months, however, Comet 45P's new sunward plummet has brightened it considerably. Two days ago, the comet passed the closest part of its orbit to the Sun. The comet is currently visible with binoculars over the western horizon just after sunset, not far from the much brighter planet Venus. Pictured, Comet 45P was captured last week sporting a long ion tail with impressive structure. Comet 45P will pass relatively close to the Earth early next month.

+Janine Viviane Hofmann, Auroras are basically radiation hittong some molecules in the air. I don't remember the exact process. Wikipedia will tell more. :)
I've seen Auroras few times and once they were quite spectacular. They are really like big curtains in the light breeze when they move.
