Oh My Stars! The 2016 NASA Science Calendar Is Now Available

It’s that time of year again. As you’re working on your new year resolutions and setting your gaze to fresh beginnings, you might be in need of a new calendar to chart out all your awesome plans. The National Aeronautics Science Space Administration (NASA) Science Mission Directorate (SMD) released their own interstellar variety: The NASA Science 2016 wall calendar

033-000-01374-4Oh my stars! It’s a dreamscape for sure. Each heart-stopping photo shows the depth and scope of both the universe and NASA’s pioneering work. A flip through the months is like taking a tiny journey about the galaxies. This year’s calendar showcases extreme ultraviolet light from our sun, bright spots on the surface of dwarf planet Ceres, a glittering cluster of 3,000 stars, icy topography of Pluto, x-ray observations of neutron star…ok, you get it.

Instead of captioning this imagery, let’s give the pictures a chance to talk.
