Patterns of lines emerging from looking at a cubic lattice of points. The black lines form along directions in the cube where the eye can see unobstructed to the other side.

This ESA/NASA +Hubble Space Telescope image reveals the interior of one of the most active galaxies in our local neighbourhood — NGC 1569. It is a starburst galaxy, meaning it is bursting at the seams with stars and is currently producing them at a rate far higher than that observed in most other galaxies. For almost 100 million years, NGC 1569 has pumped out stars over 100 times faster than the #MilkyWay!

Damaged Spektr Module Solar Arrays: 1997 | Mir Space Station
In June 1997, an unmanned supply vessel crashed into the Mir space station. The collision meant that the station began to leak air. The Russian/American crew on board desperately tried to seal the leak. Anglo-American Michael Foale of NASA was one of the astronauts on board at the time. He spoke to BBC's "Witness" program about surviving a crash in space.

Official NASA Biography of Michael Foale
www.jsc.nasa.gov/Bios/htmlbios/foale.html

Spektr was the first of the three modules launched during the Shuttle-Mir program; it served as the living quarters for U.S. astronauts and housed NASA-sponsored experiments. The module was designed for remote observation of Earth's environment and contained atmospheric and surface research equipment. Additionally, it featured four solar arrays which generated approximately half of the station's electrical power. The module also featured a science airlock to expose experiments to the vacuum of space selectively. Spektr was rendered unusable following the collision with Progress M-34 in 1997 which damaged the module, exposing it directly to the vacuum of space. (Source: Wikipedia)

Android virtual reality head mount display based on Rockchip RK3288 quad core Cortex A17 processor. Samples are $120 + shipping with full HD display.
Rorkchip has recently introduced Rockchip RK3399 processor promoting it as the “best choice for VR all-in-one“, but as development is still in progress, some companies has decided to use Rockchip RK3288 instead in their Android based all-in-one virtual reality headsets.

Planetary Robots of the Future? | Boston Dynamics
"SpotMini is a new smaller version of the Spot robot, weighing 55 lbs dripping wet (65 lbs if you include its arm.) SpotMini is all-electric (no hydraulics) and runs for about 90 minutes on a charge, depending on what it is doing. SpotMini is one of the quietest robots we have ever built. It has a variety of sensors, including depth cameras, a solid state gyro (IMU) and proprioception sensors in the limbs. These sensors help with navigation and mobile manipulation. SpotMini performs some tasks autonomously, but often uses a human for high-level guidance."

For more information about SpotMini visit Boston Dynamics' website: www.BostonDynamics.com
