Hubble’s space picture mosaic by Alex Parker

In fact, for creating this beautiful mosaic inspired by the iconic painting “The Starry Night”, Alex Parker used most famous space portraits taken by the Hubble telescope over the last 20 years. Besides, he used computer to re-produce the artwork, and downloaded Hubble’s Top 100 Images, and began reconstructing Van Gogh’s masterpiece. By the way, Alex’s specialty is exploring the asteroids and proto-planets of our solar system. According to him, the idea came up around the time of Hubble’s 22nd birthday, when he thought it would be neat to assemble a collage of a bunch of Hubble images from over its history. Alex Harrison Parker has Bachelors Degree in Physics and Astronomy with Honors (University of Washington, 2007), Art and Science Degree with Honors.

Mystery Circle-a love story in the Deep Sea
In fact, the oceans covering 70 percent of Earth are the most mysterious parts of our planet. However, humans haven’t even seen 95 percent of what lies underwater. In other words, people have better knowledge about the surface of Mars than of the bottom of the sea. Meanwhile, freelance underwater photographer Yoji Ookata spotted something he has never seen. Neither have most of us. It was a geometric, circular structure measuring roughly 6.5 ft in diameter, precisely carved from sand on the seabed. In particular, it consisted of multiple ridges, symmetrically jutting out from the center, and appeared to be the work of an underwater artist, carefully working with tools.

Marble glittering berry Pollia condensata
These beautiful tiny glittering berries, actually the shiniest objects in the world, belong to the plant Pollia condensata. But it’s more than their brilliance that makes these tropical fruits, native to Ethiopia, Tanzania and Uganda, noteworthy. The plant is made up of special layer of cells that reflects light to give the fruit its iridescent hues – a phenomenon known as structural coloration. “The optics are impressive,” Silvia Vignolini, co-author of the study, told Nature. According to her, there are no previous examples of this in nature. Despite having no nutritional value, birds are attracted to the appearance of of the berries. Birds sometimes decorate their nests with the berries, in the process help spreading the seeds.
