This image shows the coldest known spot in space! This is the Boomerang Nebula, and it has a temperature of just 1 Kelvin.
Located about 320 light-years from Earth in constellation of Centaurus, the planet HD 131399Ab is the first ever planet found orbiting a triple-star system. Depending on the season, an observer on this planet would either experience constant daylight or enjoy triple sunrises and sunsets each day!
In 2015, scientists found sharks living inside underwater volcano, Kavachi, located in the Solomon Islands. A robot was sent for investigation due to the area’s high temperature and acidic nature. Hammerhead sharks, along with silk sharks, were found living inside it.

The Fermi Bubbles are two enormous orbs of gas and cosmic rays that tower over the Milky Way, covering a region roughly as large as the galaxy itself. These giant space bubbles may be fueled by a strong outflow of matter from the center of the Milky Way.
The endangered golden dart frog is considered the most toxic animal in the world, with enough poison to kill 20,000 mice, or 10 humans, within 10 minutes. The males dutifully guard their eggs, picking up tadpoles on their backs in an attempt to find new water puddles for their survival.
Tigers generally appear orange to humans because most of us are trichromats, however, to deer and boars, among the tiger’s common prey, the orange color of a tiger appears green to them because ungulates are dichromats. A tiger’s orange and black colors serve as camouflage as it stalks hoofed prey.
This is the rope memory which held the program onboard Apollo 11 for the moon landing trip in 1969. 72K of memory, all hand wound, taking months to “program”. If a wire went through one of the circular cores it represented a binary one, and those that went around a core represented a binary zero.
In 1700s, early European versions of eggplant were smaller and yellow or white. They looked like goose or chicken eggs, which led to the name “eggplant.”
There are several small cities in China which are near-exact replicas of European cities, including this city, Tianducheng, which has a population of only around 2000 people

This photo from World War 2 shows British soldiers manning a naval gun. Their unusual dress code happened because they were in the middle of putting on a drag show when a German raid happened.
Lanternfish are the most populous vertebrate on earth and make up 65% of deep sea biomass, which makes up 90% of ocean biomass. They remove more carbon dioxide than the Amazon rainforest and are so populous that for years ocean depths were false because sonar thought lanternfish were the sea floor.
