The Bubble Nebula.
Credit & Copyright: Dave Jurasevich (Mount Wilson Observatory). Catalogued as NGC 7635, also known simply as The Bubble Nebula, the 10 light-year diameter bubble offers evidence of violent processes at work. Above and right of the Bubble's centre is a hot, O-type star, several hundred thousand times more luminous and approximately 45 times more massive than the Sun. A fierce stellar wind and intense radiation from that star have blasted out the structure of glowing gas against denser material in a surrounding molecular cloud. The Nebula lies 11,000 light-years away toward the constellation Cassiopeia. This image and shows emission from sulfur, hydrogen, and oxygen atoms in red, green, and blue hues.

The Shuar are an indigenous people of Ecuador and Peru. They are members of the Jivaroan peoples, who are Amazonian tribes living at the headwaters of the Marañón River. The centre of Shuar life is an autonomous household consisting of a husband, his wives (usually two), unmarried sons, and daughters. Upon marriage, sons would leave their natal household, and sons-in-law would move in. Men hunted and wove clothes; women gardened.

Sunflowers (Tournesols) is the name of two series of still life paintings by the Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh. The first series, executed in Paris in 1887, depicts the flowers lying on the ground, while the second set, executed a year later in Arles, shows a bouquet of sunflowers in a vase. In the artist's mind, both sets were linked by the name of his friend Paul Gauguin, who acquired two of the Paris versions. On March 30, 1987, Japanese insurance magnate, Yasuo Goto, paid the equivalent of US $39,921,750 for van Gogh's Still Life: Vase with Fifteen Sunflowers at auction at Christie's London. The painting currently resides at Seiji Togo Yasuda Memorial Museum of Modern Art in Tokyo.
