Hubble Deep Field South  In the autumn of 1998, scientists trained the Hubble Space Telescope on the furthest reaches of space in the southern hemisphere. Hundreds of photographs were taken and composed into this final image, an astonishing glimpse into the universe’s past. Since light takes many, many years to reach us from distant stars, the galaxies captured in the picture are at the very early stages of the universe’s evolution.

Rings Of Saturn  Voyager 1 took this image of Saturn at a distance of 5.3 million kilometres from the planet. Of all the amazing sights in our solar system, the rings of Saturn are one of the most remarkable. Composed of from nothing more than chunks of ice and particles of dust, the rings extend from 7,000 kilometres to 80,000 kilometres from the planet’s equator. While they have a massive circumference of 3,034,689 kilometres, the rings are estimated to be merely 10 metres in thickness.

Jupiter’s Great Red Spot  Before Voyager 1 left the inner solar system and photographed the Pale Blue Dot, the spacecraft’s primary mission was to photograph Saturn, Jupiter and the two planets’ moons. This image was taken on February 25th, 1979, and shows the swirling drama of an anticyclonic storm on Jupiter’s southern hemisphere, the planet’s famous Great Red Spot.

Pale Blue Dot On first impressions this image may look fairly indistinct, but in reality it is perhaps one of the most important photographs ever taken. The tiny blue-white dot, halfway down the brown streak on the right is actually our home planet, the Earth, floating in the dark depths of space, photographed by NASA’s Voyager 1 spacecraft in 1990 from a record distance of 3.7 billion miles. Astronomer Carl Sagan requested that the picture be taken, and he subsequently reflected that ‘all…

Carina Nebula  These ethereal clouds of matter are found in the Carina Nebula, a bright formation that envelops several clusters of stars. Although it is one of the largest and brightest nebulae in the night sky, it is far less well known and observed than more famous formations such as Orion due to its position deep in the Southern Hemisphere. The Carina Nebula is located in part of our own galaxy, approximately 6,500 to 10,000 light-years from the Earth.

Milky Way  This fabulous image from NASA shows the stars that swirl at the centre of our home galaxy, the Milky Way. Clouds of dust normally block the view from Earth to the galaxy’s centre, but by using an infra red camera the photographer was able to reveal parts of the spectrum that are usually invisible.

Valles Marineris, Mars  This image, a collaged mosaic of 102 photographs taken by the Viking 1 Orbiter in 1980, shows Mars and the vast Valles Marineris that cut a deep gash through the planet’s equator. The system of canyons is 4,000 kilometres in length, 200 kilometres wide, 8 kilometres deep at its lowest points, and as such is the biggest known canyon in the solar system.

Orion Nebula  Ever since human beings turned their attention to the heavens they have been aware of the Orion Nebula, a celestial feature situated at the south of Orion’s Belt that is visible to the naked eye. The ancient Mayan culture of Central America had a folk tale that explained this smudgy star-filled part of the night sky. The Hubble Space Telescope captured this wonderful image of the nebula in 2006, offering humanity the most detailed glimpse of Orion yet.
