Cover: NASA's Cassini spacecraft has delivered a glorious view of Saturn, taken while the spacecraft was in Saturn's shadow. The cameras were turned toward Saturn and the sun so that the planet and rings are backlit.
Since images like this can only be taken while the sun is behind the planet, this beautiful view is all the more precious for its rarity.

Celebrate the Courage!
Malala was a young Pakistani girl who demanded education for girls and in return got shot in the head point blank. A combination of luck and outrage, and most importantly her belief in herself and her mission, helped her recovery. As she continued her campaign for education the world rallied to her support and she became the youngest person to be awarded a Nobel Peace Prize.

ALL I WANT IS AN EDUCATION
I AM AFRAID OF NO ONE.
Yet another young Pakistani girl who has made a mark in the world at a tender age. I have followed her work on Facebook since she was little and she is indeed a brilliant artist and a decent human being and I should be honoured to showcase her work and share it with you ... soon.
