This gorgeous image was taken by the Herschel Space Observatory, using a photoconductor array camera and spectrometer, spectral and photometric imaging receiver and XMM-Newton (space satellite).  What you are seeing here is the intensely cold nebula’s gas and dust emissions.

You can read a more in-depth, scientific explanation here on the NASA website.  Herschel and XMM-Newton are both European Space Agency missions.  The Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California contributed mission-enabling technology for two of Herschel’s science instruments.

We all know Michael A. Stackpole can write starfighter combat like nobody’s business and has a knack for turning out priceless characters. When it comes to Star Wars, X-Wings, Rogue Squardon, and Corran Horn are his weapons of all-conquering story power. Yet In Hero Years…I’m Dead is a different kind of story. This isn’t Star Wars; this is superheroes. There is no fighter combat; there is hand-to-hand combat. But the characters are still deep, flawed, and completely compelling. For fans of Superman, Batman, or any other superhero franchise, this is right up your alley.

Click here for the full review.
