49 incredible images of space like you've never seen before

Pocket-lint Logo By ESO/M. Kornmesser of Pocket-lint | Slide 1 of 49: This artist's impression shows what a high-speed collision with Europa might look like. Europa is Jupiter's moon and data from NASA's Galileo mission has shown evidence of a comet or asteroid colliding with the moon at a shallow angle. These collisions leave clay-like minerals and organic compounds, the type of which are found on ancient asteroids and comets.
