Artist's concept of Command Module re-entry in 5000° heat. Creator: NASA

Artist's concept of Command Module re-entry in 5000° heat. The Apollo Command/Service Module was used for the Apollo program which landed astronauts on the Moon between 1969 and 1972. An ablative heat shield on the outside of the CM protected the capsule from the heat of re-entry (from space into Earth's atmosphere), which is sufficient to melt most metals. During re-entry, the heat shield charred and melted away, absorbing and carrying away the intense heat in the process.

Oberon, moon of Uranus, from Voyager 2, 24 January 1986. Creator: NASA

Oberon, moon of Uranus, from Voyager 2, 24 January 1986. This image of Oberon is the best the unmanned Voyager 2 spacecraft acquired of Uranus' outermost moon. The picture was taken from a distance of 660, 000 kilometers (410, 000 miles). The colour was reconstructed from images taken through the narrow-angle camera's violet, clear and green filters. The picture shows features as small as 12 km (7 miles) on the moon's surface. Clearly visible are several large impact craters in Oberon's icy surface surrounded by bright rays similar to those seen on Jupiter's moon Callisto. Quite prominent near the centre of Oberon's disk is a large crater with a bright central peak and a floor partially covered with very dark material. This may be icy, carbon-rich material erupted onto the crater floor sometime after the crater formed. Also visible is a large mountain, about 6 km (4 miles) high.
