Some of Ron Cobb’s concept art for Alien (1979). Among other duties in the art department, Cobb contributed to the look and feel of technology in the Alien universe, designed the “Semiotic Standard” for signs in interstellar spacecraft, and illustrated the Xenomorph birthing chambers from Dan O’Bannon’s original screenplay.

hex: Saturn’s north pole, photographed by Cassini, 3rd April 2014.
The hexagon is an atmospheric vortex, the shape apparently created by interaction of winds circling the pole at different speeds. Each side of the hexagon is about 13,800km long, wider than Earth.
10 images taken over about a quarter of a Saturnian day, which is about 10 hours and 40 minutes long.

Astrophotography from 1908 — 1919

These images were taken about 100 years ago. I can’t even describe how much respect I have for early astronomers.
