Awesome Photo Of A F-15 Being Refueled From The Air Fuel Tankers Perspective

Image Cache: What a view. Here’s a KC-135 Stratotanker refuelling a F-15 in the air from the perspective of the air tanker. Actually, it’s almost like seeing the whole process from the perspective of the boom, as we see the probe arm reach into the receptacle. It’s such an awesome angle.

Enjoy An Endless Day On Charon

As the New Horizons spacecraft approached Pluto this summer, it sent back photos from all angles, allowing us to reconstruct an entire day on the dwarf planet. Not one to play favorites, NASA has now gone and done the same for Charon, Pluto’s crater-ridden moon.

Peace Never Hides For Long

Image Cache: In this gorgeous concept art, Karl Ellis gives us a peek at a world that is almost like Earth, but not quite. At the base of that gravity-defying rock column, you can see the glowing cave mouths where someone is settling in for a peaceful evening.

Image Cache: The winners of the 2015 Arcaid Images Architectural Photography Awards were announced last week as part of the the World Architecture Festival — and the results are predictably stunning.

This Is What The Orion Service Module's Propulsion System Looks Like
