Very cool!
 
APOD: 2016 May 23 - Inside a Daya Bay Antineutrino Detector

Image Credit & Copyright: DOE, Berkeley Lab - Roy Kaltschmidt, photographer

Why is there more matter than antimatter in the Universe? To better understand this facet of basic physics, energy departments in China and the USA led in the creation of the Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment. Located under thick rock about 50 kilometers northeast of Hong Kong, China, eight Daya Bay detectors monitor antineutrinos emitted by six nearby nuclear reactors. Featured here, a camera looks along one of the Daya Bay detectors, imaging photon sensors that pick up faint light emitted by antineutrinos interacting with fluids in the detector. Early results indicate an unexpectedly high rate of one type of antineutrino changing into another, a rate which, if confirmed, could imply the existence of a previously undetected type of neutrino as well as impact humanity's comprehension of fundamental particle reactions that occurred within the first few seconds of the Big Bang.

The SpaceX Falcon 9 first stage booster that successfully launched a Japanese satellite to a Geostationary Transfer Orbit (GTO) just 3 days ago and then nailed a safe middle of the night touchdown on a drone ship at sea minutes minutes later, is headed back to port and may arrive overnight or soon thereafter.

SpaceX scored a double whammy of successes this morning, May 6, following the stunning nighttime launch of a Japanese comsat to orbit on the firm’s Falcon 9 rocket and nailing the breathtaking touchdown of the spent first stage just minutes later - furthering the goal of rocket reusability

Impact events on Mars 3.4 billion years ago triggered massive tsunamis that reshaped the coastline of the ancient Martian ocean.

It’s going to be almost impossible to travel to another star, but a new idea was announced that might get us to a nearby star within our lifetime. How will it work?

No one had a better view of the transit of Mercury across the Sun than the space-based Solar Dynamics Observatory, as it had a completely unobstructed view of the entire seven-and-a-half-hour event.

A bird, a plane, superman? No, this is the grazing meteor of April 29, 9:50 PDT (April 30, 04:50:16.44 UT), as recorded in the Mount Hamilton, California, all-sky camera.
