Suitable to its completion in 2018 was very generous in terms of space fantastic photos. Breathtaking images of nebulae, our Earth, other planets, stars, historic space launches and a new, completely unique space missions – all this was in the list of the most memorable space photos 2018 according to the portal New Atlas, which has recently summarized the results.
Sit back and enjoy this amazing beauty.
the Lagoon nebula – star formation region, located about 4000 light-years from Earth. The image in the visible spectrum received by a space telescope "Hubble" in February this year
Active star-forming region nebula Skull and bones (NGC 2467) photographed a Very large telescope of the European southern Observatory
the Cherry Roadster, Elon musk, receding from the Earth after launching aboard a super-heavy carrier rocket in February this year
the Last picture of the dummy "Starman" sitting inside the Roadster and racing away from the Earth
Photograph of the nebula These Keel obtained with a telescope Vista of the European southern Observatory
the First "selfie" lander, NASA InSight, made after landing on the Red planet
Image "Dolphin" "floating" among the vortex of clouds of Jupiter. The photo was taken by the spacecraft Juno space Agency NASA
Detailed map of the distribution of stars in our galaxy that display nearly 1.7 billion stars. The image is obtained using the space telescope Gaia European space Agency
photo Mosaic of the asteroid Bennu received the interplanetary space station NASA OSIRIS-REx from the distance of 24 kilometers from the surface of the object. This image is the most detailed picture of the surface of an asteroid in history
Received 8 November sun probe "Parker", this image is the first in the history of space exploration photography obtained directly from the solar atmosphere. On the left part of the image you can see the coronal ejection of plasma, as well as the planet mercury (the brightest point) in the background
Super Typhoon "Centres", photographed from the International space station in September this year, the German ESA astronaut Alexander Gershom
the Rover "Curiosity" looks at the way that he overcame in his six-year journey to the red planet after landing in a place that scientists have named "Bradbury landing"
this is a panoramic image obtained by space telescope Hubble in the infrared and ultraviolet ranges, and contains about 15 000 galaxies
This image consists of images of Saturn obtained in the visible range of the spectrum in the beginning of 2018, as well as earlier photos of auroras on the planet, taken in ultraviolet
Photograph of the globular cluster NGC 1898 located in the centre of the Large Magellanic Cloud
This the own luminescence of the atmosphere over Australia was received in October. The phenomenon is caused by charged particles of the solar wind hitting the atmosphere and releasing energy in the form of orange lights
Photograph of the tarantula nebula, obtained using the Very large telescope of the European southern Observatory
Another amazing image of Jupiter obtained by the spacecraft Juno
Composite image of a triple star system APOP in the near-infrared/heat range infrared radiation. Vortex cloud of gas and dust around the star suggests that the system in the future will create a very powerful burst of gamma radiation
view from the spaceplane VSS Unity private tourism company Virgin Galactic. The photo was taken during the first launch into space
the Space telescope Hubble took this image of Mars July 18, 2018 at a time when the Red planet is closest (in 2003) was located to the Ground
the Spiral galaxy NGC 3981, photographed by the Very large telescope of the European southern Observatory
This is a radio image obtained with the radio telescope, located in the Northern Cape province of South Africa, shows the center of the milky Way. The brighter the light, the stronger the signal coming from the source
Photo received orbiting spacecraft Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. It depicts the crater looks like a tadpole. The "tail" of the crater is a dry riverbed, proving that once on the planet there was water in liquid form
Another photo of Mars, this time from the probe "Mars-Express". It shows the Korolev crater, filled with a huge number of frozen water
Star Lupus 3 in the constellation of the Wolf. Near the star is at least one exoplanet. The constellation itself is located in a region of active star formation
Composite image of the North pole of the Sun under a previously unseen angle. The image was obtained using the extrapolation of the photos taken by the space probe of the European space Agency's Proba-2

the Upcoming cosmonautics day is my favorite holiday. It marks the triumph of the human mind: in just four thousand years Homo Sapiens went from hunter-gatherers to space explorers. 12 April 1961 Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became the first man in ...
you Know what surprised me the most? The fact that we perceive the surrounding world as it is. Animals, plants, the laws of physics and the cosmos are perceived by many people as something so mundane and boring that they invent fairies, ghosts, monst...
In the cosmic ocean drifts a lot of mysteries about the existence of which we are unaware. One of these was uncovered five years ago, when astronomers have discovered a lonely star at a distance of 570 light years from Earth, the brightness of which ...
the Ground is certainly rich in precious stones, but in comparison with the jewels on distant planets and their number can be worthless. These are the "treasure chests" found researchers from the universities of Switzerland and th...
Two astronauts and a cosmonaut returned to Earth on Thursday after a hectic stay on the ISS, and the failure of the rocket, which was to lead shift crew. The spacecraft "Soyuz", on Board of which was Alexander Gerst from the Europ...
the New platform laser guidance developed by the Massachusetts Institute of technology, could help small satellites to play high speed data transmission. In 1998 was launched nearly 2,000 satellites the size of a shoebox, known as...
