Image Cache: The universe is very good at making us feel both extremely insignificant and lucky enough to be part of something huge. No missions have made this clearer than NASA's Voyager spacecraft, which have been exploring the cosmos for 40 years. Yesterday, Voyager 1 officially turned the big 4-0, which it celebrated by cruising through interstellar space.

Image Cache: As Cassini's tour of Saturn comes to a close, NASA's getting a bit nostalgic. This week, the space agency released a photo of Saturn's North pole the doomed spacecraft took on April 26 — the day it started its Grand Finale. It's almost poetic to have a photo of Cassini staring into the void before it perishes within it.

Image Cache: When you capture Australia at just the right angle, it can look more than foreign — it can look properly alien. That's the end result of these photos from Canon's 'Down Under From Above' aerial photography project, which turn Shark Bay on the WA coast into an orange and teal masterpiece that looks like something out of The Martian.

Image Cache: Lingering sense of ennui creeping in? Concerned about our current government? Allow me to temporarily assuage your problems by offering up some lovely images of Jupiter. They won't solve anything, but they just might help you get through day the without shouting into a stranger's face or kicking over a traffic cone.

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.
