This NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image reveals the Cosmic Snake, a distant galaxy peppered with clumpy regions of intense star formation that appear warped by the effect of gravitational lensing. This giant arc-like galaxy is actually behind the huge galaxy cluster MACSJ1206.2-0847, but thanks to the cluster’s gravity, we can see it from Earth.
Behold the cosmic snake

This artist’s impression shows the temperate planet Ross 128 b, with its red dwarf parent star in the background. The new world is now the second-closest temperate planet to be detected after Proxima b. It is also the closest planet to be discovered orbiting an inactive red dwarf star, which may increase the likelihood that this planet could potentially sustain life. Contributed photo

This 2011 image provided by CERN shows a subatomic event  that displays characteristics expected from the decay of the long-sought subatomic particle Higgs boson, which physicists say they are now confident they have discovered. The European Organization for Nuclear Research, called CERN, says Thursday a look at all the data from 2012 shows that what they found last year was a version of what is popularly referred to as the "God particle."
