Close-up photos of dying star show our sun's fate

About 550 light-years from Earth, a star like our Sun is writhing in its death throes. Chi Cygni has swollen in size to become a red giant star so large that it would swallow every planet out to Mars in our solar system. Moreover, it has begun to pulse dramatically in and out, beating like a giant heart. New close-up photos of the surface of this distant star show its throbbing motions in unprecedented detail.

Amazing Archive of High-Res Photos From NASA's Gemini Missions

There's something about old photographs. The perfect amount of faded light, outdated coloring, and nostalgia seems to make them more beautiful with age. Perhaps that's why this collection of images from NASA's Gemini Program is so stunning.

Birth of Stars (NASA, Chandra, 10/7/08)

RCW 108 is a region where stars are actively forming within the Milky Way galaxy about 4,000 light years from Earth. This complicated region contains young star clusters, including one that is deeply embedded in a cloud of molecular hydrogen. Using data from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory and other telescopes, astronomers have determined that star birth in this region is being triggered by the effect of nearby, massive young stars.
