Discover quantizedscience's Instagram LOOK, VENUS IS just a weird planet. “With Venus and Earth, it’s like you had two chocolate cake mixes and ended up with one chocolate cake and one lemon cake,” says Ellen Stofan, NASA’s former chief scientist. Venus’ lemony nonsense includes a runaway greenhouse effect, crazy-high surface temperature and pressure, and a thick layer of clouds for icing.

To make matters weirder, the upper atmosphere’s clouds whip around Venus faster than the planet turns on its axis. That so-called super-rotation turns Venus’s atmosphere into a blur of clouds speeding by at 100 m/s—except for when some parts mysteriously stop and chill over the mountains.

An infrared camera aboard the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency’s Venus-orbiting Akatsuki spacecraft first spotted these lazy pockets of atmosphere in December 2015. And while other scientists had speculated about such a structure, Akatsuki’s camera brought the first hard evidence: an enormous, 6,000-mile bow-shaped region hanging over a mountainous region of Venus.

Discover astrophysicsman's Instagram It may come as a surprise to many, but when the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) was launched in 1990, none of its first images were released to the public. In fact, NASA managers were concerned about the response if the HST should malfunction. Even some astronomers argued against immediately showing images to the public. Yet all of this changed with the release of one of Hubble's most iconic images in 1995.

In November 1995, NASA released an image of the Eagle Nebula taken by Hubble. The image, shown above, shows a region in the Eagle Nebula located around 7,000 light years away. Towering pillars of interstellar gas and dust reach up like giant megaliths and glow in bright, stunning colours. Soon after this stunning image was released to the public, it found its way into major newspapers that featured it. The image became an icon of the HST. 
The pillars were soon nicknamed the "Pillars of Creation." Within these massive structures--the tallest of which is about 4 light years in height--new stars are being born from the interstellar material. Observing the pillars with Hubble has offered scientists new insights into stellar formation and evolution. Smaller gaseous columns on the pillars are called evaporating gaseous globules, which astronomers believe are sites of new stars in the process of formation. Over time, the intense radiation from nearby stars actually causes the material in these globules to evaporate away, revealing the newly forming stars within. 
Hubble has offered us a view of the universe that would have seemed unreal only a few decades ago. Hubble has not only taught scientists more about the universe, it has also brought the universe to the general public like no other telescope.

NGC 7023: Iris Nebula
.
"So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs."
.
These clouds of interstellar dust and gas have blossomed 1,300 light-years away in the fertile star fields of the constellation Cepheus. Sometimes called the Iris Nebula, NGC 7023 is not the only nebula in the sky to evoke the imagery of flowers, though. Still, this deep telescopic view shows off the Iris Nebula's range of colors and symmetries in impressive detail. Within the Iris, dusty nebular material surrounds a hot, young star. The dominant color of the brighter reflection nebula is blue, characteristic of dust grains reflecting starlight. Central filaments of the dusty clouds glow with a faint reddish photoluminesence as some dust grainseffectively convert the star's invisible ultraviolet radiation to visible red light. Infrared observations indicate that this nebula may contain complex carbon molecules known as PAHs. The pretty blue petals of the Iris Nebula span about six light-years.

That's no moon... oh wait, yes it is. It's Saturn's moon Mimas and it's large Herschel Crater. Shadows cast across the moon, provide an indication of the size of the crater's towering walls and central peak.

Named after the icy moon's discoverer, astronomer William Herschel, the crater stretches 86 miles (139 kilometers) wide -- almost one-third of the diameter of Mimas (246 miles or 396 kilometers) itself. Large impact craters often have peaks in their center. Herschel's peak stands nearly as tall as Mount Everest on Earth.

Discover astrophysicsman's Instagram Our solar system is a vast, mysterious place. It formed around 4.6 billion years ago and is now home to eight (known) planets, numerous moons, and countless asteroids, comets, and even dwarf planets. Our solar system is a very interesting place, so here's 10 interesting facts to boost your knowledge of our solar system. 
1. Did you know that over 99% of all the mass in the solar system is contained in the sun? It shows just how truly mind boggling massive the sun is.

2. There are at least 4 worlds (other than Earth) where life could exist in our solar system. These include Mars, Titan, Europa, and Enceladus. However, there is also speculation into whether or not asteroids and other moons could also have favourable conditions for life. 
3. Earth is the only world in the solar system that has an atmosphere rich in oxygen. The oxygen in our atmosphere is almost entirely a result of biological processes, namely photosynthesis. 
4. Mars is home to the largest dust storms in the solar system. In fact, Mars actually experiences global dust storms that cloud the entire planet.

5. Although Venus isn't the closest planet to the sun, it has the hottest surface temperatures. The average surface temperature on Venus is around 450°C. This extreme temperature is a result of Venus having an atmosphere dominated by carbon dioxide that creates a runaway greenhouse effect.

6. Our moon is the largest moon in the solar system relative to the planet it orbits. The sheer size of our moon made it hard to determine how it formed. Now it's generally agreed among scientists that the moon formed after a collision between the early Earth and a Mars or Mercury sized object. 
7. Although Saturn is known for being the ringed-planet, it's not the only planet in the solar system with rings. In fact, each of the four outer planets have rings, just none of them are as prominent as Saturn's. (Keep reading into the first comment below for more facts! 👇👇👇) 1429145214849629279_4008710248

Crescent Jupiter with the Great Red Spot: This image of a crescent Jupiter and the iconic Great Red Spot was created by a citizen scientist (Roman Tkachenko) using data from Juno's JunoCam instrument. You can also see a series of storms shaped like white ovals, known informally as the 'string of pearls.' Below the Great Red Spot a reddish long-lived storm known as Oval BA is visible. The image was taken on Dec. 11, 2016, as the Juno spacecraft performed its third close flyby of Jupiter. At the time the image was taken, the spacecraft was about 285,100 miles (458,800 kilometers) from the planet.

.
"Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which thou lettest down?"
.
Normally faint and elusive, the Jellyfish Nebula is caught in this alluring, false-color, telescopic view. Flanked by two bright stars, Mu and Eta Geminorum, at the foot of acelestial twin, the Jellyfish Nebula is the brighter arcing ridge of emission with dangling tentacles below and right of center. In fact, the cosmic jellyfish is seen to be 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. Emission nebula Sharpless 249 fills the field at the upper left. The Jellyfish Nebula is about 5,000 light-years away. At that distance, this image would be about 300 light-years across. The color scheme used in the narrowband composite was made popular in Hubble Space Telescope images, mapping emission from oxygen, hydrogen, and sulfur atoms to blue, green and red colors.
