infrared light penetrates the dust. This view combines the sharp imaging of Hubble’s Near Infrared Camera and Multi-Object Spectrometer (NICMOS) with color imagery from a previous Spitzer Space Telescope survey done with it’s Infrared Astronomy Camera (IRAC). The NICMOS mosaic required 144 Hubble orbits to make 2,304 exposures.

Hubble: A Journey Through Space and Time (6 Photos) APR 09, 2010 01:00A.M.

This magnificent image from NASA’s Spitzer and Hubble space telescopes shows the Orion Nebula in an explosion of infrared, ultraviolet, and visible-light colors. It was “painted” by hundreds of baby stars on a canvas of gas and dust, with intense ultraviolet light and strong stellar winds as brushes. At the heart of the nebula, in the brightest part of the image, is a group of monstrously massive stars, collectively called the Trapezium. Located 1,500 light-years from Earth, the Orion Nebula is the brightest “star” in the sword of the Hunter constellation.

All images courtesy of NASA. The core of the spectacular globular cluster Omega Centauri glitters with the combined light of 2 million stars. The entire cluster contains 10 million stars, and is among the biggest and most massive of some two hundred globular clusters orbiting the Milky Way galaxy. Globular clusters are ancient swarms of stars united by gravity. This image and caption, and those that follow, are from the recently released Hubble: A Journey Through Space and Time by Edward J. Weiler, published by Abrams in collaboration with NASA to mark the 20th anniversary of the April 24, 1990, launch of the Hubble Space Telescope.

The Crab Nebula is a six-light-year-wide expanding remnant of a star’s supernova explosion. Japanese and Chinese astronomers recorded this violent event nearly one thousand years ago in 1054, as did, almost certainly, Native Americans. The orange filaments are the tattered remains of the star and consist mostly of hydrogen. The neutron star embedded in the center of the nebula, which has a mass equivalent to the Sun crammed into a rapidly spinning ball of neutrons 12 miles across, is

This sweeping panorama, 300 light-years in width, is the sharpest infrared picture ever made of the core of our Milky Way galaxy. It offers a nearby laboratory for how massive stars form and influence their environment in the often-violent nuclear regions of other galaxies. The galactic core is obscured in visible light by intervening dust clouds, but

Canon PowerShot A495 Review APR 08, 2010 07:50P.M.

Remnants from a star that exploded thousands of years ago created a celestial abstract portrait called the Pencil Nebula. Officially known as NGC 2736, the Pencil Nebula is part of the huge Vela supernova remnant, located in the southern constellation Vela. Discovered by Sir John Herschel in the 1840s, the nebula’s shape suggests that it is part of the supernova shock wave that recently a region of dense gas. It is this interaction that causes the nebula to glow, appearing like a rippled sheet.

As camera manufacturers increasingly add more bells, whistles and megapixels to their compacts in order to outdo the competition, it’s easy to overlook the cheaper yet still very capable end of the market. This is where cameras like the new Canon Powershot A495 aim to provide the core functionality and image quality of their more expensive brethren in a more accessible and of course cheaper package. Read our in-depth 10page Canon PowerShot A495 review to find out if this budget shooter hits the mark. Read the review »

Its reservoir has shrunk to a fifth capacity and hasn’t filled since 2003, forcing Jordan to ration water.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX5 Review APR 06, 2010 07:45P.M.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX5 is a brand new travel-zoom compact camera that’s stuffed to the proverbial gills with all the latest must-have features. A 10x, 25-250mm Sony G lens? Check. Built-in GPS tracking complete with a compass? Check. Full 1080i high-definition video with stereo sound? Check. A 10 megapixel CMOS sensor, 3 inch screen, manual shooting mode, 10fps burst mode, even SD memory card support - all present and correct. Read our in-depth Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX5 review to find out if all of these features add up to a great camera.

The trouble with photographers like Simon Hoegsberg is that it’s difficult to choose only one of his projects to tell you about. To create We’re All Gonna Die – 100 meters of existence, he stood on a railroad bridge in Berlin for 20 days, photographing strangers. The result: a print 30 inches high, and 100 METERS wide. Gasp.
