National Geographic publish newly released photos of our universe each week on their brilliant website. This week's publication includes photos of the Crab Nebula (shown above), a solar sunami, the Earth from the ISS, dust from Centaurus and an artist's depiction of the birth of a star. The Crab Nebula is described as "the remnant of a stellar explosion 6,000 light-years from Earth that was so powerful people saw the burst in A.D. 1054, according to NASA". Click here to see more.
