Picture of the Day: The thinnest anticorrosive coating

  New research has established graphene as the thinnest known coating for protecting metals against corrosion.

Picture of the Day: Marblelike Miracle

          In a “Mindblowing Rainbow,” Vero cells from the kidney of a monkey have been exposed to a herpes virus. The virus causes them to express proteins tagged by the scientists in a rainbow of colors, bringing to mind a collection of jelly beans or marbles.   Related articles A step […]

Picture of the Day: Monster Saturn Storm

Cassini has been circling Saturn for years, but it’s still revealing spectacular things about the planet. Violent weather provides a great spectacle on Earth, as long as it doesn’t actually destroy anything, but it’s nothing compared with what’s happening on Saturn.

Picture of the Day: Colliding binary star winds

An artist’s rendering of a colliding wind binary.     A colliding-wind binary is a binary star system in which the two members are massive stars that emit powerful, radiatively-driven stellar winds. The location where these two winds collide produces a strong shock front that can cause radio, X-ray and possibly synchrotron radiation emission. Wind […]

Picture of the Day: Orion

  Humans have been gazing at Orion for millennia, but they’ve never seen it as beautiful as this. Granted, we can’t actually see it like the photo above would suggest, as the fiery glow is only visible to telescopes tuned to submillimeter radio frequencies.

Picture of the Day: Venus

Artist’s impression of an active volcano on Venus. Results from a long-term study of Venus find evidence of a clear injection of sulphur dioxide into its upper atmosphere. One possible interpretation is that volcanic activity increased the sulphur dioxide component of the upper atmosphere, although an alternative is that a change in atmospheric circulation dredged […]

Picture of the Day: Algae Bloom

The stunning picture above shows several phytoplankton blooms as seen from space, and was made available to the public by the NASA Earth Observatory.
