Unbelievable Photographs of Saturn!

It looks fake! Saturn appears to look perfectly smooth like a glass marble. These very real photographs of Saturn and other planets/moons can be found on OPUS- The Rings Node's Data Search Tool.

Astronauts Take HD Footage With GoPro 2015

U.S. Astronaut Terry Virts used a GoPro camera to film above the Earth from the International Space Station. Virts and fellow astronaut, Barry "Butch" Wilmore were taking a spacewalk to prepare the ISS for the arrival of two International Docking Adapters later this year and also, the arrival of the Bigelow Expandable Activity Module (BEAM).  This HD footage is absolutely breathtaking! It's like being right up there with them. I hope they film more. If we are lucky, an extraterrestrial might stop by or fly by the camera!
