Washington, DC—A team of astronomers from Carnegie and Western University in Ontario, Canada, has discovered one of the youngest and brightest free-floating, planet-like objects within relatively close proximity to the Sun. The paper reporting these results will be published by The Astrophysical Journal Letters.

A live feed broadcast by the Exploratorium Science Center in San Francisco showed the event, including the period of totality when the moon is almost completely blocking the Sun’s disc, revealing its scorching atmosphere.

Rip, heal, repeat. The tiny, tentacled hydra tears itself a new one — a new mouth, that is — at every meal.

Galleries, libraries, archives and museums — 20 websites where you can download free high resolution images.
People often ask me where they can find images of collection items that they can reuse for free.

Clyde, is that you? Octopod resembling a Pac-Man ghost haunts the NOAA Okeanos Explorer's deep-sea exploration ROV.
