- Jupiter. Artwork of the gas giant planet Jupiter and two of its moons. Jupiter is the largest planet in the Solar System, with a diameter over 11 times that of Earth. Two of its Galilean moons are seen here, Io (centre left) and Europa (upper right). The Great Red Spot, an enormous storm system, is seen at centre right. At centre left, on the night side of Jupiter, red flashes of lightning can be
- Planetary formation. Artwork of an Earth-like planet forming in the early solar system. It is thought that the planets formed from a rotating disc of material that formed around, and at the same time as, the Sun (upper left), around 4. 6 billion years ago. This protoplanet grew in size as it gathered up the surrounding material (such as the rocky debris seen) by gravitational attraction. Impact c
- At the extreme poles of the Moon, the Sun appears so low down on the horizon that some craters have floors which are in perpetual shadow, as in this illustration. We are inside a vast crater. The bright hills in the distance mark the crater's raised far wall, just catching the Sun which is behind us. But the rest of the crater is shadowed from the Sun by the opposite rim of the crater, behind us.

- Merged black holes. Image 2 of 2. Supercomputer simulation of two non-spinning black holes (brown disc at centre) that have merged together. According to Einstein's theory of general relativity, the merger of two massive objects causes ripples (orange lines) in space-time. These ripples, known as gravitational waves travel at the speed of light but have not been observed directly. A black hole i

According to Einstein's theory of general relativity, the merger of two massive objects causes ripples (yellow lines) in space-time. These ripples, known as gravitational waves travel at the speed of light but have not been observed directly. A black hole is

- Young star. Artwork showing jets (upper and lower centre) emanating from the poles of a young star. A dark circumstellar disc of dust is seen edge-on across centre. Discs such as this are thought to be the precursors of planetary systems, with planets forming as the dust coalesces. The jets (bipolar molecular outflows) are thought to form as material ejected from the star is forced into two jets b
- Comet. Artwork of a comet passing behind the Earth and Moon. Comets are masses of ice, dust and rocky material. They tend to have long elliptical orbits around the Sun. When they near the Sun, the heat causes some of the ice to vaporise, forming a huge cloud (coma) around the comet body. Pressure from the solar wind causes a tail to form, which may be millions of kilometres long. Most comets have
- Saturn with its rings at their widest angle to Earth, optical HST image. Saturn, like Earth, has a large axial tilt (it rotates on a different plane to the one in which it travels around the Sun). With Earth, this effect causes the seasons. With Saturn, it is useful as it allows Saturn's polar regions to be studied from Earth. Its south pole is seen here. Saturn orbits the Sun once every 29.5 year
- Moon, seen from the International Space Station (ISS) on 22 April 2003. The diameter of the Moon is 3476 kilometres. It orbits the Earth at a distance of around 385,000 kilometres. It is seen here through the Earth's atmosphere with clouds (white) and the blue colour of the sky fading into dark blue as the atmosphere thins into the vacuum of space. The Moon does not have an atmosphere and is a hea

- Aurorae on Saturn, illustration. Aurorae (blue) are produced by the interaction of the solar wind with a planet's atmosphere. Charged particles collide with gases in the upper atmosphere, causing them to emit light. On Saturn, as on Earth, they occur in polar regions. This is because the magnetic field of the planet channels the charged particles to these regions. The planet's ring system is also
