A long-exposure image combining the arc of the Milky Way, shimmering aurora, and Iceland's spectacular Godafoss, the Waterfall of the Gods, was captured earlier this year. The composite photograph was produced by digitally "stitching" four frames together. It a first place winner in the 2013 International Earth and Sky Photo Contest on Dark Skies.

Astronaut Chris Hadfield's Extraordinary Life in Space:

Vegetables come in dehydrated packs, and require rehydration from a special machine before eating


Wringing out a soaked cloth doesn't really do much


When making sandwiches, astronauts use tortillas instead of bread because tortillas don’t create crumbs


You have to be careful when you open a can of mixed nuts in space


There’s pretty much only one option for haircuts in space, and there’s a specially designed hair clipper on the ISS attached to a vacuum to keep hair from floating away


When you brush your teeth in space, the only way to get rid of the toothpaste when you’re finished is to swallow it


You shouldn't cry in space because your tears just hang out on your face


Sleeping in space requires special tethered sleeping bags in little sleeping compartments so you don’t float all over the place

▶ 10 Years of Weather History in 3 Minutes

"The hurricanes stood out to me the most. Hurricane Katrina at the 0:45 mark looks no different from several storms before and after it. Hurricane Ike, which knocked out my power for five days and caused $30 billion of damage in the US and $7 billion in Cuba, is almost undetectable. It must be around the 1:40 mark, but the storm that covered the Gulf of Mexico in pictures on the Weather Channel comes and goes too quickly for me to pinpoint it for sure. Hurricane Sandy is fresh in our minds, and you can see it pretty clearly at the 2:50 mark in the video, but it too forms and dissipates in the blink of an eye."

Movie of Phobos and Deimos mutual event, Curiosity sol 351
This movie clip shows Phobos, the larger of the two moons of Mars, passing in front of the other Martian moon, Deimos, on August 1 2013, from the perspective of NASA's Mars rover Curiosity. The clip includes interpolated frames smoothing out the motion between frames from Curiosity's Mast Camera (Mastcam). Mastcam took images 1.4 seconds apart. With the interpolated frames, this clip has 10 frames per second. It runs for 20 seconds, matching the actual time elapsed.
