Composite image of a film strip along the top of the frame. A sun flare occupies the top left side with various bubbles floating throughout the image. A black and white microscopy image of the material; it looks like zoomed in scratches on a hard surface on the left, then the same image in vivid multicolor on the right. Rare isotopes implanted into the center of a sensitive detector known as the FRIB Decay Station initiator. Looking into the HERA tunnel, the world's most powerful electron-proton collider.

Photo - A new study has found that a share of particles that has gone missing is most likely located at the distant bounds of galaxy haloes. The study found some of these particles of baryonic matter located about 6 million light-years from their galactic centers. This color-rendered image shows the halo of the Andromeda galaxy, which is the Milky Way’s largest galactic neighbor. (Credit: NASA) A collage of a telescope over a orange, star-filled sky
