This photograph of comet 37P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko by the Rosetta spacecraft is by far one of the most incredible things we have ever seen.

Belgian artist Evelyne Axell (1935-1972) invented a genuine proto-feminist perspective on Pop Art iconography in the 1960s and early 70s. Axell was an acclaimed theater and film actress and screenwriter, before she turned to painting, tutored by the Surrealist René Magritte. The female eroticism in Axell’s work constituted a challenge to art world conventions of her time.

We love a good conceptual photo series, and the Kahn & Selesnick's fantastically visionary Mars: Adrift On the Hourglass Sea photography series is one of our favorites we have seen in quite some time. Envisioning an expedition and civilization on Mars, the work focuses on societies in crisis and on the brink of major change, and although the work appears alien, the DYI and recycled nature of some of the materials in each photo makes everything appear familiar.

We first saw the Ulysses series by Miles Donovan in London back in 2012 and thought we would take a look back at the fantastic collages, a "series of images from the missing space probe Ulysses." Great collage ideas, juxtaposing images of deep space with those of both the common tourist and street scenes. Perhaps we will see some space tourists in 2014...

We are going to call this "solar art." Something so amazing, so incredibly documented, that it almost seems like it can't be real and it has to be a painting or digital manipulation. From NASA, "On August 31, 2012 a long filament of solar material that had been hovering in the sun's atmosphere, the corona, erupted out into space at 4:36 p.m. EDT.

Neil Alden Armstrong (August 5, 1930 – August 25, 2012) was an American astronaut and the first person to walk on the Moon. In honor of his exceptional existance, and our love for space travel, here's an epic collection of galactic ink work from a variety of talent for you to gaze at. Lust in outerspace. RIP original spaceman.

Courtesy of NASA's panoramic camera (known as the Pancam) on the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity, we now have a new view of the Martian landscape. It is quite an incredible image of our much fantasized about neighbor in the solar system. Here are some details from NASA themselves: "This scene recorded from the mast-mounted color camera includes the rover's own solar arrays and deck in the foreground, providing a sense of sitting on top of the rover and taking in the view."

New York City-based Michael Kagan makes us remember why we love space travel in the first place; it documents well, even if it is oil on linen pieces based on photographs. He has a whole wonderful series of large scale paintings of NASA space missions, all created with both figurative and abstract flourishes.

By no means do we want to be conspiracy theorists here on the site, but when you see incredible photographs by astronauts in space, in this case Don Pettit and his recent shots of star trails aboard the International Space Station, do you ever wonder if all space photos are just really incredible photoshop jobs and staged? Because these are just too amazing to be real...
