It is easy to believe that we have it hard when the alarm rings for work or school early in the morning each day. But as these pictures show, it's worth a lot to have a normal and safe way to our daily activities...
Tim Costello, CEO of World Vision says: "Every day, around the world, we're seeing the power of education to transform communities. For instance, girls who spend seven years in school marry on average four years later and have 2.2 fewer children. An extra year of primary school boosts girls’ eventual wages by 10 to 20 per cent. An extra year of secondary school boosts wages by 15 to 25 per cent. Every time these children make such journeys to school, they don't benefit just themselves, but their entire communities." → goo.gl/3z93R

Normally faint and elusive, the Jellyfish Nebula is caught in this alluring telescopic view. Drifting near bright star Eta Geminorum, at the foot of a celestial twin, the Jellyfish Nebula is seen dangling tentacles from the bright arcing ridge of emission left of center. In fact, the cosmic jellyfish is part of bubble-shaped supernova remnant IC 443, the expanding debris cloud from a massive star that exploded. Light from the explosion first reached planet Earth over 30,000 years ago. Like its cousin in astrophysical waters the Crab Nebula supernova remnant, IC 443 is known to harbor a neutron star, the remnant of the collapsed stellar core. The Jellyfish Nebula is about 5,000 light-years away. At that distance, this image would be about 100 light-years across.
