  • A composite image shows the galaxy NGC 4522 in the Virgo Cluster, the nearest large cluster of galaxies to our own local group of galaxies, and the "wake" of gas and dust being blown from the galaxy. The galaxy appears blue in the Hubble Space Telescope image in visible light. The superimposed red image is from Spitzer data and shows emissions from dust that traces molecular hydrogen. In the image, the galaxy is moving down and into the plane of the photo. (Suresh Sivanandam; Dunlap Institute for Astronomy & Astrophysics)

  • In this picture released by the European Space Agency ESA on Nov. 14, 2014, Rosetta Flight Director, Andrea Accomazzo (L) takes a call after receiving confirmation that the Rosetta mission's Philae lander has successfully touched down on Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko on In Darmstadt, Germany Nov. 12, 2014. Philae landed Nov. 12 next to a cliff that largely blocked sunlight from reaching its solar panels. The head of the European comet mission says scientists will listen for signals from the Philae lander on Saturday, Nov. 15, 2014, but think it is unlikely they will establish any kind of communication soon. Controllers at the European Space Agency on Friday ordered the lander to perform a maneuver intended to pull it out of a shadow on the comet so that solar panels could recharge the depleted batteries. “We don’t know if the charge will ever be high enough to operate the lander again,” Paolo Ferri, ESA’s head of mission operations, told The Associated Press.

  • This image released by the European Space Agency ESA Thursday Nov. 13, 2014 was taken by Philae's down-looking descent ROLIS imager when it was about 40 meters (131 feet) above the surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko Wednesday.  It shows that the surface of the comet is covered by dust and debris ranging from mm to metre sizes The large block in the top right corner is 5 m in size. In the same corner the structure of the Philae landing gear is visible.  The lander scored a historic first Wednesday, touching down on comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko after a decade-long, 6.4 billion-kilometer (4 billion-mile) journey through space aboard its mother ship, Rosetta. The comet is streaking through space at 41,000 mph (66,000 kph) some 311 million miles (500 million kilometers) from Earth.  (AP Photo/Esa,Rosetta,Philae)
