New record broken! We discovered a remote galaxy shining with the light of more than 300 trillion suns. It is the most luminous galaxy found to date and belongs to a new class of objects recently discovered by our Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) -- extremely luminous infrared galaxies.

Colima Volcano Eruption Against Stars
Cesar: "At the end of March, 2015, I was within a few miles of the most recent eruption of the Colima Volcano, in the Mexican state of Colima. Eruptive periods of this 12,631 ft (3,850 m) stratovolcano occurred in the early 1990s, from 1998 to 1999 and from 2001 to the present. Since November 2014 Colima, one of Mexico's most active volcanoes, has been particularly energetic. In this case, as with prior eruptions, a lava dome first formed and was followed by large explosions and pyroclastic flows. Much of the area surrounding Colima was doused in volcanic ash and tephra.
 
Because the material ejected by volcanoes typically has a strong positive charge, if the atmosphere is negatively charged, lightning can sometimes be observed in the vicinity of the volcano's summit. This photo was snapped on March 29, 2015, about 4 mi (6.5 km) from the base of the volcano."

Globular Star Cluster 47 Tuc

Globular star cluster 47 Tucanae is a jewel box of the southern sky. Also known as NGC 104, it roams the halo of our Milky Way Galaxy along with over 150 other globular star clusters. The second brightest globular cluster (after Omega Centauri) as seen from planet Earth, 47 Tuc lies about 17,000 light-years away and can be spotted naked-eye near the Small Magellanic Cloud in the constellation of the Toucan. The dense cluster is made up of hundreds of thousands of stars in a volume only about 120 light-years across. Recent observations have shown that 47 Tuc's white dwarf stars are in the process of being gravitationally expelled to the outer parts of the cluster due to their relatively low mass. Other colorful low mass stars including yellowish red giant stars are easy to pick out on the outskirts of the cluster in this recently released sharp telescopic portrait by the Hubble Space Telescope.

Auroras and Star Trails over Iceland

It was one of the quietest nights of aurora in weeks. Even so, in northern- Iceland during last November, faint auroras lit up the sky every clear night. The featured 360-degree panorama is the digital fusion of four wide-angle cameras each simultaneously taking 101 shots over 42 minutes. In the foreground is serene Lake Myvatn dotted with picturesque rock formations left over from ancient lava flows. Low green auroras sweep across the sky above showing impressive complexity near the horizon. Stars far in the distance appear to show unusual trails -- as the Earth turned -- because early exposures were artificially faded.

"  Cape Canaveral, FL (May 20, 2015) – The Planetary Society’s citizen-funded LightSail™ spacecraft has launched into orbit aboard a United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas V rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. The spacecraft is part of a secondary payload dubbed ULTRASat aboard the U.S. Air Force mission AFSPC-5. The mission will test LightSail’s critical functions in low-Earth orbit, a precursor to a second mission set for 2016.  "

The Orwell Prize  je veřejně vyhlašována každé jaro. Autoři jsou oceňováni ve třech kategoriích, žurnalistika, blog a knihy, jejichž téma se co nejvíc shoduje s Orwelovými myšlenkami.

V roce 2015 budou vítězové jmenováni na slavnostním ceremoniálu dne 21. května 2015.
Cena mimo jiné ukazuje na propastný rozdíl v kvalitě žurnalistické práce v českých a britských médiích, ale i na negativní přístup českých médiíí k zveřejňovaní pravdivých informací.
Ze stovky návrhů bylo vybráno 12 knih, 15 novinářů a 14 ks sociální zpráv.
