"Astronomers from South Africa on Saturday revealed more than a thousand galaxies nobody knew existed. They were showing off the first taste of the ultimate cosmic feast of what is to come, at least as seen from this particular dusty crumb called Earth.
When it’s done, sometime around 2030, the Square Kilometer Array, as it is known, will be the largest telescope ever built on our planet."
The distant galaxies were recorded by a set of 16 antennas that will eventually be a part of the largest telescope ever built on Earth.

"The NASA Extreme Environment Mission Operations (NEEMO) 21 mission began on July 21, 2016, as an international crew of aquanauts splashed down to the undersea Aquarius Reef Base, located 62 feet below the surface of the Atlantic Ocean in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary.
The NEEMO 21 crew will perform research both inside and outside the habitat during a 16-day simulated space mission. During simulated spacewalks carried out underwater, they will evaluate tools and mission operation techniques that could be used in future space missions. Inside the habitat, the crew's objectives include testing a DNA sequencer, a medical telemetry device, and HoloLens operational performance for human spaceflight cargo transfer."

We feed our hissing cockroaches a variety of fruits and vegetables to keep them healthy. We also give them kitten chow for protein, which most people don't expect to see! Viani Gomez, Temporary Keeper #takeovertuesday

"The view was obtained at a distance of approximately 257,000 miles (413,000 kilometers) from Saturn and at a Sun-Saturn-spacecraft, or phase, angle of 34 degrees. Image scale is 15 miles (25 kilometers) per pixel.
Saturn's main rings, along with its and moons, are much brighter than most stars. As a result, much shorter exposure times (10 milliseconds, in this case) are required to produce an image and not saturate the detectors of the imaging cameras on NASA's Cassini spacecraft. A longer exposure would be required to capture the stars as well."

"The photographer then noticed that when the owl would descend on his meal, it would hover for a moment above the area before swooping in — a perfect opportunity for a photo."
Check out this amazing photograph of a barn owl flying overhead, captured in August 2015 by nature photographer Roy Rimmer. It's a shot that took an incred

Hands-on science learning for everyone! FREE general admission!
Introduction

The California Science Center offers hands-on experiences that appeal to people of all ages! You'll learn about human inventions and innovations, the life processes of living things and more.

Space Shuttle Endeavour is on display in the Samuel Oschin Pavilion. Discover the science and technology behind one of the most advanced transportation systems ever created. Reserve your timed tickets www.californiasciencecenter.org

From digital imaging to solar cars and earthquake-resistant buildings, Creative World showcases advances humans make to fill the needs for communication, structures and transportation. In World of Life, discover how living creatures—from the single-celled amoeba all the way up to 100-trillion-celled human being—have the same life processes in common.

Come visit Ecosystems, our newest permanent exhibit that houses nearly 400 plant and animal species. From walking through a living kelp forest to experimenting on a polar ice wall, you can investigate some of the Earth's most fascinating ecosystems.
