Saturn at Night
Imaged by Cassini on October 17, 2012 during its 174th orbit, the ringed planet’s night side is viewed from a perspective 19 degrees below the ring plane at a distance of about 800,000 kilometers with the Sun almost directly behind the planet. A 60 frame mosaic, images made with infrared, red, and violet filters were combined to create an enhanced, false-color view. Strongly backlit, the rings look bright away from the planet but dark in silhouette against the gas giant. They reflect a faint eerie light on the cloud tops while Saturn casts its own dark shadow on the rings.

Nine Inch Nails on Instagram:

Last night in Auburn, WA was the final show of our 2013-2014 tour cycle. Thank you to everyone who came out to the shows and everyone who helped make them happen. Thank you to @soundgarden@coldcave23@dillingerescapeplan, and @0pn for sharing the stage with us on #NIN2014. We’re hard at work on a video release that will encompass #NIN2013, #Tension2013, and #NIN2014. Stay tuned for details.”

Dark Matter Distribution in the Abell 901/902 Supercluster
Astronomers assembled this photo by combining a visible-light image of the Abell 901/902 supercluster taken with the MPG/ESO 2.2-meter telescope in La Silla, Chile, with a dark matter map derived from observations with NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope. The magenta-tinted clumps represent a map of the dark matter in the cluster. Dark matter is an invisible form of matter that accounts for most of the universe’s mass. The image shows that the supercluster galaxies lie within the clumps of dark matter.
Hubble cannot see the dark matter directly. Astronomers inferred its location by analyzing the effect of so-called weak gravitational lensing, where light from more than 60,000 galaxies behind Abell 901/902 is distorted by intervening matter within the cluster. Researchers used the observed, subtle distortion of the galaxies’ shapes to reconstruct the dark matter distribution in the supercluster.

The Old Ones Remember
In addition to their unparalleled powers of camouflage, octopuses are equipped with incredible powers of the mind.
Octopuses have evolved a brain and central nervous system comparable to that of vertebrates, endowing these creatures with the ability to learn through observation, and form long-term memories of their experiences. 
The remarkable mental faculties of octopuses, the most advanced among all invertebrates, has made them ideal subjects for research on neurobiology. Scientists continue to call upon the knowledge of the Old Ones study these amazing cephalopods to discover more about the processes of learning and memory.
