    Exploring the Antennae - Some 60 million light-years away in the southerly constellation Corvus, two large galaxies are colliding. Stars in the two galaxies, cataloged as NGC 4038 and NGC 4039, very rarely collide in the course of the ponderous cataclysm that lasts for hundreds of millions of years.

    We did it! NASA Cassini spacecraft successfully dove through the gap between Saturn and its rings – an area previously unexplored by any spacecraft! Cassini is in the process of beaming back science and engineering data collected during its passage. Until the mission ends in September, the spacecraft will make 21 more dives through this gap to collect science. Find out more: http://go.nasa.gov/2p7TIlNGeorge Touryliov

    Cascading loops on the surface of the sun highlight an active region that had just rotated into view of our solar-observing spacecraft. We have observed this phenomenon numerous times, but this one was one of the longest and clearest sequences we have seen in years. The bright loops are actually charged particles spinning along the magnetic field lines! Take a closer look - http://go.nasa.gov/2oSCiJN George Touryliov
