Image Cache: Sometimes, the majesty of the final frontier — a cold, unfeeling space — has the power to make our eyes misty. The images from NASA's Cassini mission have often been able to do this, and since the spacecraft is dying soon, it makes the experience all the more emotional. Before it goes out in a blaze of glory, Cassini has been sending back some of the most incredible images of Saturn and its moons — but one of its latest from Saturn's rings is especially spectacular.

Image Cache: A new book published by the Imperial War Museum features a rare collection of colour photos from World War II, some of which haven't been seen in over 70 years. From P-51D Mustangs and Flying Fortresses through to anti-aircraft spotters and flame hurling tanks, these images cast the war in a vibrant new light.

Image Cache: Alas, all good things must come to an end. Today, NASA will announce the details regarding its Cassini spacecraft's Grand Finale — a resplendent ending to its 20-year-long adventure in space, which will begin later this month. From late April to September 15, Cassini will perform 22 dramatic dives between Saturn and its rings. Then, the brave little orbiter will plunge itself into Saturn's atmosphere and burn up like a meteor — all while sending information back to Earth.

Image Cache: Apple's Shot on iPhone billboard photography campaigns have always been beautiful. Its latest, designed to show off some amazing low-light images captured with the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, tasked photographers with capturing their images between dusk and dawn on the night of November 5, 2016. And Australia's very own Bondi Beach gets a special showing.

Image Cache: Josh Smith is an aerial photographer with a message, and a mission - how can everyday Australians learn more about the work that goes into food production in our country? How can he best show the scale and beauty of what they do with our land?

The answer, he hopes, are these images - which also help to show the farmers themselves the striking beauty of what they are working with.

Pandora is one of Saturn's many baby moons, far too runty to form a sphere under its own gravity. Instead, this 84km across space rock looks more like a fossilized glob of silly putty in closest image ever captured by NASA's Cassini spacecraft.

Image Cache: You love space gifs. Your weird engineering buddy loves space gifs. So it was only a matter of time before NASA, the fun-loving government agency with a mission to make sure everybody on this pale blue dot is feeling stoked about the cosmic beyond, officially joined the internet's one stop shop for clever retorts and silly reactions better known as GIPHY.

Last night, photographers around the world turned their cameras to the sky to capture the closest full moon — also known as a supermoon — since 1948. We've scoured the web to bring you some of our favourite photos of the celestial event that took our minds off the current state of world affairs for a few blissful minutes.

Image Cache: As the US election nears, America can at times feel like a hideous and hateful place. Let this map of the United States' river basins made by Imgur user Fejetlenfej remind you that, at the very least, it can be beautiful. Fejetlenfej — a geographer who sells their maps on Etsy — created the image using QGIS software, which is an open-source geographic information system. The map depicts both "the permanent and temporary streams and rivers," the creator explained. They divided the streams into catchment areas, which show when rainfall flows into a river, lake or reservoir. Using the Strahler Stream Order Classification, which is a system used by geologists to define stream sizes, Fejetlenfej explained that on the map, "the higher the stream order, the thicker the line".
