Open star clusters like the one seen here are not just perfect subjects for pretty pictures. Most stars form within clusters and these clusters can be used by astronomers as laboratories to study how stars evolve and die. The cluster captured here by the Wide Field Imager (WFI) at ESO’s La Silla Observatory is known as IC 4651, and the stars born within it now display a wide variety of characteristics. The loose speckling of stars in this new ESO image is the open star cluster IC 46...

The build-up of another Ariane 5 began this week in French Guiana, initiating preparations for Arianespace's fifth heavy-lift flight of 2015 from the Spaceport. Using the well-established procedures employed since Ariane 5's introduction in the mid-1990s, the vehicle's core cryogenic stage was positioned over a mobile launch table inside the Launcher Integration Building. It was followed by rollout of the two solid propellant boosters for mating with the erected core cryogenic stage. This...
