The Croatian Apoxyomenos—A Bronze Athlete. It is thought to be a Hellenistic or Roman replica after a original from the 4th century BC. This statue was discovered in 1996 by a recreational diver, who came across it lying 45m deep in the Adriatic Sea.
Southern Cross and Volcanic Lava
The Southern Cross and the bright Eta-Carina nebula shine above volcanic lava of Kīlauea volcano in Hawaii.
Located in the World Heritage Site of Volcanoes National Park, the Kilauea caldera is one of the most active volcanoes on the planet. In recent decades, eruptions have been continuous with many of the lava flows reaching to the Pacific Ocean shore. — Wally Pacholka
In “The Religion of the Forest,” Tagore wrote about the influence that the forest dwellers of ancient India had on classical Indian literature. The forests are sources of water and the storehouses of a biodiversity that can teach us the lessons of democracy—of leaving space for others while drawing sustenance from the common web of life. Tagore saw unity with nature as the highest stage of human evolution.
On May 15, 2013, Cassini’s camera system, the Imaging Science Subsystem (ISS), looked for clouds across Titan’s sub-Saturn hemisphere from 2.49 million kilometers (1.55 million miles) away.
The ISS took a number of images of Titan in different filters. Three of which were used for this composite image. This RGB false color composite of Titan is in 3 different filters: continuum filter (where methane is more transparent), methane band (where methane is strongly absorbing), and ultraviolet.
