Community Policy (Read this)  - 
 
***PLEASE READ THE COMMUNITY POLICY AND GUIDELINES BEFORE POSTING***.

***POSTS THAT DO NOT PROVIDE ATTRIBUTION OR CREDITS ARE SUBJECT TO REMOVAL***  

First read this few, important words by our fellow moderator +Jason Major :

"Just a quick note (PLEASE READ) – if you post an article here that has already been shared recently, especially multiple times, OR if you post an image or video (even space-related) with no content, description, or attribution, it will be removed.

Thank You - Management"

Please refer to the Community Policy at left for more information. Thank you.
 
It's About Respect 
 
One of the things we do a lot as moderators of the Space community is remind posters to give proper attribution and link-backs to the authors and artists whose work they're sharing with everybody. Though the rules are pretty simple - put the name of the content creator in your post, if the work is copyrighted put the name of the organization that owns the copyright (if different from the author) in your post, and include a link back to the original source - they're often not heeded. The moderating team understands that even these simple rules are significantly stricter  than what people find in most of social media, and so we try to give people ample warning and reminders of the expectations here. 
 
If we know the rules surrounding sharing are stricter than in other communities, why do we have them?  If the copyright boogymen aren't coming for you on Facebook, Pinterest, Tumblr, or even elsewhere on Google+, isn't it safe to just share freely with the Space community? 
 
Well, simply put, yes. Unless you're posting something that's explicitly and blatantly illegal, the legal ramifications of your sharing a quote, or an image, or what have you are nil. Nobody's coming to get you. 
 
But that's not the point. It's not about the law. We're not trying to cover our behinds, and we're not reminding you to cover yours. In fact, many of the images we're all sharing are in the public domain, and are not protected by copyright laws. 
 
It's about respect. 
 
By naming the scientist, author, artist, photographer, videographer, director, producer, or whoever it is that has created this work that you feel is worth sharing in your post and including a link back to the original source, you are showing your respect. You are showing your respect to the creator of that work, and, perhaps more importantly, you are showing your respect to the other members of this community. 
 
As moderators, we want to build a community that is built on respect, and one of the most significant ways we can show respect is to give credit where credit is due. We want to foster an attitude around content sharing that is respectful, that is not exploitative of artists and authors, and that does not take the members of this community for granted. 
 
As a denizen and frequent user of social media, you may not care about giving credit, and as a content creator yourself, you may not care if you get credit. In the end, however, it isn't about you, nor is it about what you care about. It's about this community as a whole, and what kind of community we all want it to be. What we want is a community that does care. 
 
We want a community that cares about attribution because it's curious about where things come from, and because it's respectful toward others.

This image shows the remnant of Kelper’s Supernova, the structure remaining after the cataclysmic explosion of a star. The supernova is named after Johannes Kepler who observed the star’s explosion in October 1604, which at the time was brighter than any other star or planet in the sky.

Alien or rock formation? UFO hunters claim extraterrestrial presence on Mars! - See pic http://spacechecker.blogspot.com/2016/06/alien-or-rock-formation-ufo-hunters.html
The search for extraterrestrial life has been going on for years and those involved in alien hunting or UFO hunting have on many occasions, come close enough to provide evidence justifying their presence. UFO hunters and alien investigators alike love to go into the minute details of images ...

What is the circular object near the top? It's certainly not our moon.
Also, what are the little blue fuzzy dots in front of it?

International Space Station. 
The ISS serves as a microgravity and  Space environment research laboratory in which crew members conduct experiments in biology, human biology, physic, astronomy, meteorology, and The other fields.  station is suited for the testing of spacecraft systems and equipment required for missions to the Moon and Mars. The ISS,  maintains an orbit with an altitude of between 330 and 435 km (205 and 270 mi) by means of reboost manoeuvres using the engines of the  Zevzda module, or visiting spacecraft. It completes 15.54 orbits per day.
ISS is the ninth space station to be inhabited by crews, following the Soviet and later Russian Salyut, Almaz,  and  Mir stations as well as Skylab from the US. The station has been continuously occupied for 15 years and 164 days since the arrival of Expedition 1 on 2 November 2000. This is the longest continuous human presence in space, having surpassed the previous record of 9 years and 357 days held by Mir. The station is serviced by a variety of visiting spacecraft: the Space Shuttle, Soyuz, Progress, the Automated Transfer Vehicle,  the H-II  Transfer Vehicle, Dragon, and Cygnus. It has been visited by astronauts, cosmonauts and space tourists from 17 different nations.

Herschel deep-space telescope shuts down : The deep-space telescope Herschel has taken its final bow, climaxing a successful four-year mission to observe the birth of stars and galaxies. The largest and most powerful infrared telescope in space, Herschel made over 35,000 scientific observations and amassed more than 25,000 hours of science data, says the European Space Agency (ESA).

Launched in May 2009, Herschel carried 2,300 litres of liquid helium coolant, which evaporated over time. Its expected lifetime had been 3.5 years. At 7.5 metres high and four metres wide, Herschel had a launch mass of 3.4 tonnes. It carried three cameras and spectrometers and a primary mirror 3.5 metres across -- able to collect almost 20 times more light than any previous infrared space telescope.

The Roscosmos State Corporation for Space Activities (Russian: Государственная корпорация по космической деятельности "Роскосмос"), commonly known as Roscosmos (Russian: Роскосмос), is the governmental body responsible for the space science program of Russia and general aerospace research.

The Corporation was established on the basis of the now-defunct Federal Space Agency on December 28, 2015. Roscosmos was previously known as the Russian Aviation and Space Agency (Russian: Российское авиационно-космическое агентство, Rossiyskoe aviatsionno-kosmicheskoe agentstvo, commonly known as Rosaviakosmos).[2][3]

The headquarters of Roscosmos are located in Moscow, while the main Mission Control space center is located in the nearby city of Korolev. The Cosmonauts Training Centre (GCTC) is in Star City. The Launch facilities used are Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan (with most launches taking place there, both manned and unmanned), and Vostochny Cosmodrome being built in the Russian Far East in Amur Oblast.

The current Director since January 2015 is Igor Komarov. In 2015 the Russian government merged Roscosmos with the United Rocket and Space Corporation, the re-nationalised Russian space industry, to create the Roscosmos State Corporation.
