stormtroopers

An activist of the Ukrainian Internet Party, wearing a stormtrooper outfit from the Star Wars saga, distributes goods in Independence Square in Kiev. The party activists, who traditionally wear Star Wars costumes during their actions, distributed canned foods, matches, condoms, toilet paper, soap, lightbulbs and 'tickets' for their spacecraft evacuation to passersby to supposedly save Ukrainians from the end of the world on December 21. The date marks the end of an era that lasted over 5,000 years, according to the Mayan 'Long Count' calendar. Some believe that the date, which coincides with the December solstice, marks the end of the world as foretold by Mayan hieroglyphs an idea ridiculed by scholars.

The Khumbu Icefall is clearly visible here, and one can easily see the hustle and bustle of Everest Base Camp below.

hubble planetary nebula christmas

Observatories routinely release "holiday themed" heavenly photos come late December, and this time the Hubble Space Telescope bears good cheer for 2012 in the form of a cosmic Christmas ornament. The Hubble photo depicts a planetary nebula that resembles a ribbon and glass bauble. While past holiday seasons have brought us a cosmic wreath, a nebula as snow-angel and an orb-like pulsar (spinning star) that resembles an ornament, this year's photo is a little more on the abstract side. The central, circular shape of the nebula, called NGC 5189, can be seen as an ornament made of blown glass, and the reddish knotted structure that flows around the middle looks like a tangled ribbon that holds the ornament in place.
