A Collage of the Day the Earth Smiled

Written by

In July, Earthlings were asked to wave at Saturn and we did all the while taking photos of ourselves. For the first time humans came together in a moment in time and posed collectively for a camera 9 million miles away orbiting a distant alien world. People gathered together and waved, but not only that, they engaged in conversations and people learned more about Saturn. Many people, young and old, viewed the ring giant with their own eyes through a telescope that night for the first time.

Carolyn Porco, leader of the Cassini mission, conceived of the concept "The Day The Earth Smiled", a worldwide celebration of humans' place in the cosmos and of life on Earth the moment the picture was taken. NASA put all of your photos into an incredible picture collage of Earth.

Stunning Galactic Collision

Written by

Observations with NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory have revealed a massive cloud of multimillion-degree gas in a galaxy about 60 million light years from Earth. The hot gas cloud is likely caused by a collision between a dwarf galaxy and a much larger galaxy called NGC 1232. If confirmed, this discovery would mark the first time such a collision has been detected only in X-rays, and could have implications for understanding how galaxies grow through similar collisions.
