Star birth in the early universe
Star birth in the early universe, artwork. This 1- billion-year-old universe is based on deep field observations by the Hubble Space Telescope. Deep field observations reveal the remotest objects in the universe. Because light has taken billions of years to reach Earth from these distances, these observations look back to the early history of the universe. Observations from 1995 and 1998 showed intense knots of bright blue-white stars, thought to be part of these primordial starburst galaxies that are too faint to be seen. The next generation of space telescopes will look further back in time to try and reveal this epoch of star formation.

German Armoured Vehicles; Second World War, 1944
Illustration showing a selection of German armoured vehicles used during the Battle for Normandy in 1944. The vehicles shown include 'Panther' and 'Tiger' tanks (left foreground), two assault guns (one a 'Wasp'), 'Elephant' and 'Hornet' tank destroyers, several anti-aircraft vehicles, an armoured ambulance and two remote controlled explosive tanks (a 'B4' and a 'Beetle'). Note that these vehicles were only the ones that the Allies knew about and let information be published about, at the time.
