Astrophotographer Adam Block talks about the galaxy known as Messier 87, home of the supermassive black hole photographed by the Event Horizon Telescope.
An artist's impression of the perpetual sunrise that might greet visitors on the surface of planet TRAPPIST-1f. If the planet is tidally locked, the "terminator region" dividing the night side and day side of the planet could be a place where life might take hold, even if the day side is bombarded by energetic protons. In this image, TRAPPIST-1e can be seen as a crescent in the upper left of the image, d is the middle crescent, and c is a bright dot next to the star. Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech
