Our Favourite Space Images From 2013

Space is big. Really big. It would take a gargantuan trek of 21.24 billion kilometres for you to reach the outer edges of our solar system, and a further 435 sextillion (that’s 10 to the power of 21!) kilometres to reach the furthest region of the observable universe. There is so much to explore but what we’ve seen so far has been incredibly beautiful.

NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory keeps an extensive catalogue of cosmic images taken by the various spacecraft up in the heavens. Here’s a small selection of our favourites space images taken in 2013.

Stunning “Little Planet” Panoramas

Little planet photography is clearly a popular pastime given the thousands of photos you see on Flickr. The Create your own planets group is a great example. Some of the images are just bizarre and surreal, and others are magically beautiful.

Catherine Nelson, who describes herself as a painter with a camera, uses her experience in creating visual effects for films like 300, Troy, and Moulin Rouge to produce some of the most incredibly beautiful spherical panoramas.

Nelson takes hundreds of photos of her surroundings during the different seasons, and then spends months digitally stitching them together to create the most picturesque planetoids. You must seem them, after the jump.

Beautiful Liquid Sculptures

If you liked Linden Gledhill’s photos of dancing paint or Heinz Maier’s water droplet art, then you might just enjoy the liquid sculptures of Markus Reugels.

The photographer from Schweinfurt, Germany uses similar high-speed photography techniques to capture water and milk in motion, or at the very moment when the droplets make contact with various surfaces. The very precise, synchronized actions results in extremely beaultiful and colourful splashes. Have a look at some of Reugel’s liquid sculptures after the jump.
