Europa is like a spherical ice cube that has partially melted. In fact, if you shook this small moon of Jupiter, you might hear a sloshing sound. That’s because a deep, global ocean lies beneath th...

Is There Anybody Out There?
In a live version of "Stairway to Heaven," Robert Plant, somewhat obnoxiously, asks the audience, "Does anyone remember laughter?" (After the lyrical line, "....and the forests will echo with laughter...." I always thought it was an odd rhetorical question ...

"Fighting Dragons of Ara" by Michael Sidonio
"Clouds of swirling purple, green and orange gas and dust that appear as ‘fighting dragons’, shaped by the recent birth of large stars much bigger and brighter than our Sun. One such star can be seen to the lower left of the image within two shells of glowing gas. The image gives a snapshot of the chaotic stellar nurseries in which stars are born. Our own Sun probably formed in similar circumstances 4.5 billion years ago."

"Known as the fighting dragons of Ara, two colorful gas clouds appear to be posing in attack position. Australian astrophotographer Michael Sidonio captured subtle hues of purple, orange, and green from the giant cloud of gas and dust, which sits 4,000 light-years from Earth in the southern constellation of Ara. The 300-light-year-wide molecular cloud is being shaped by radiation from massive young stars formed inside during the past few million years."
