Galactic Center of Our Milky Way
The Hubble Space Telescope, the Spitzer Space Telescope, and the Chandra X-ray Observatory — collaborated to produce an unprecedented image of the central region of our Milky Way galaxy.
Observations using infrared light and X-ray light see through the obscuring dust and reveal the intense activity near the galactic core. The center of the galaxy is located within the bright white region in the upper portion of the image. The entire image covers about one-half a degree, about the same angular width as the full moon.
Each telescope’s contribution is presented in a different color:
Mira Heo, for no one (2014)
"Freelance photographer Mira Heo is living and working in Seoul, Korea. She creates simple, yet profound self-portraits, investigating herself, her fears, hopes and dreams that she describes like this: “My fear is me. My hope is me and you. And my dream is to feel more and more happy and I can make people happy.” - iGnant

EL COCUY NATURAL NATIONAL PARK
2014/7/23 Boyacá, Colombia.
This “summer” my family and i went to this amazing natural park, and we hiked to the snow; it was great but very hard to do because the snow was 5.130 meters above sea level so we could hardly breath, i almost surrender but due to the landscape i went on and took this pictures, maybe they aren’t that good, but the landscapes were beautiful and very overwhelming.
plus here in Colombia does not snows so this was the very first time i touched snow and it was nice, i liked very much.
In the first picture there is this giant rock called “Púlpito del Diablo” and it means Devil’s pulpit, it has that name because no matter what it never gets covered by snow, some people say it’s hot. so it’s satan’s home… sweet.
Located at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, the JCIT opened earlier this year and was designed by Zaha Hadid Architects to provide a home to the 1,800 students and staff that make up the university’s design school.
The design concept was to “dissolve the typical typology of the tower/podium into a more fluid composition”. Curved surfaces smoothly transition between walls, ceilings and floors, while courtyards and lobbies are dotted throughout the building.
