NASA's NuSTAR has taken a break from peering into the far-away Universe and used its high-energy X-rays to snap the most sensitive and stunning images of our Sun to date, putting any Christmas displays on Earth to shame.
NASA's Deep Impact spacecraft has captured the first images of comet C/2012 S1 (ISON), which is all set to pass close to the sun later this year.
