This image shows the highest energy neutrino ever observed (1.14 petaelectronvolts), which scientists named 'Ernie,' as seen by the IceCube Neutrino Observatory at the South Pole on Jan. 3, 2012. Image released Nov. 21, 2013.
This is the first image ever taken of Earth from the surface of a planet beyond the Moon. Mars Exploration Rover Spirit took it on the 63rd Martian day of its mission. (March 8, 2004) The image is a mosaic of images from the navigation camera and an image from the panoramic camera of Earth. The inset shows a combination of four panoramic camera images zoomed in on Earth. Credit: NASA/JPL/Cornell/Texas A
This diagram maps data gathered from 1994-2013 on small asteroids impacting Earth's atmosphere to create very bright meteors (bolides). The location of impacts from objects ranging from 1 meter (3 feet) to nearly 20 meters (60 feet) in size such as Chelyabinsk asteroid are shown globally. (Credit: Planetary Science, NASA)
