Good news - more than half the missing atoms in the universe have been located. Unfortunately this does not include the atoms that serve to make up my car keys.

Io over Jupiter, ~310,000 miles above the planet. Our moon is 238,900 miles away. While our moon takes 28 days to circle the Earth, Io only takes 1.8 days.

The collision of two neutron stars has been seen by astronomers for the first time, in both gravitational waves and light.

Amongst many interesting aspects to this cosmic event is that is has finally settled the debate about where gold and platinum come from. Another amazing fact is that; "Neutron stars are the smallest, densest stars known to exist: about 12 miles wide, with a teaspoon of neutron star material having a mass of about a billion tons. The core is a soup of pure neutrons, while the crust is smooth, solid and 10 billion times stronger than steel."

NGC 2936, the Galactic Penguin. Once a typical spiral galaxy, it was warped by its neighbor NGC 2937. The galaxies lie ~400 million light years away.

The Butterfly Nebula (NGC 6302). The "wings" are gets of heated gas (36,000 degrees F) traveling at more than 600,000 miles an hour. At the center is a dying star that was once ~5 times the mass of our Sun. The nebula is ~3800 light years away.

The globular cluster Omega Centauri. Its core contains 2 million stars that average a third of a light-year between them. By comparison, the nearest star to our Sun is 4.2 light-years away. The entire cluster is home to 10 million stars. It's located 17,000 light years from us, orbiting outside the Milky Way.
