  Beauty & mystery in science.

The bright stars in the lower right hand corner are Hodge 301, located in the Tarantula Nebula within the Large Magellanic Cloud. These bright exploding stars send matter hurling through space at speeds up to 200 miles per second. This matter causes the sheeting seen in the upper left of the image. Credit: You-Hua Chu

  Science tidbit

Kaleidoscope image.
Kaleidoscope Optics

The kaleidoscope was invented in 1816 by Sir David Brewster, a Scottish physicist and Christian minister. The origin of the word kaleidoscope speaks to the splendid images. Kaleidoscope finds its roots in the Greek word kalos meaning beautiful, the Indo-european eidos that means form, and scope that is Greek for to see.

See how all those images come together.
