My Sky

We’re looking for images you’ve taken of your sky—whether those images are of galaxies captured through a telescope or perhaps pictures of an incredible night sky, an eclipse, a star party, or a rocket launch. We can’t guarantee that we’ll publish every image and story—but we will look at each and every one and will showcase as many as possible here on our website and a few might make it to our magazine, The Planetary Report. We look forward to seeing your Sky. Share Your Sky »

A Tower of Smoke

by Jordan Rice

September 8, 2016

As a child I was introduced to science in the same way many are... through science fiction. Star Wars was one of the first science fiction films I had seen. A few years later the Star Wars prequels were released, which although many dispute their greatness, they were also influential, introducing aspects of space travel such as the hyperspace ring.
