The Vulcan

Today’s wallpaper features the famous Avro Vulcan nuclear bomber, referred to with backhanded affection as the Tin Triangle. These aircraft were built during the 1960′s as part of the RAF’s V-bomber force, designed to carry nuclear weapons to targets in Russia. They would fly in below Russian radar, only a few hundred feet off the […]

The main wheels have just left the ground as this amazing plane begins it’s speedy flight across the Atlantic. Conccorde was a technological marvel; a passenger jet that could cruiser at twice the speed of sound, […]

Turn and Burn

our Aircraft theme flies ever onwards. We one again have an American F-15E Strike Eagle, but this one appears to be in a spot of bother. He’s banking away rapidly to starboard and popping flares as fast as he can. No doubt some nefarious enemy has opened fire on him…or more likely it’s just a […]

Missiles away!

We return to our Aircraft theme with today’s wallpaper, showing us a pair of American F-15E Strike Eagles out of Elemendorf AFB, Alaska,  launching what appear to be Sparrow air-to-air missiles. These fighters are big, powerful and fast, able to break the sound power while climbing straight up and mounting a wide and lethal array […]

Modern Panzers

We return to our Military theme today with this great image from the German Army. Three Leopard 2 Main Battle Tanks advance in open formation across a field, their powerful main guns aimed forward vigilantly. These tanks are among the most advanced in the world, and, along with the American Abrams and the British Challenger […]

M104, The Sombrero Galaxy

Our journey through the universe and it’s wonders carrier on. Today we’re at the startling distance of 28 million light years, admiring the magnificent Sombrero Galaxy, otherwise known as Messier 104. This enormous spiral galaxy lies in the constellation of Virgo and is so named because, well, it looks like a giant Mexican hat. According […]

Hubble Ultra Deep Field

As a follow-up to our hubble Telescope wallpaper from earlier, we present this astonishing image taken by the Hubble itself. It may look like an ordinary starfield but it is so much more. Within this image, which shows a tiny patch of sky in the constellation Fornax, lie some of the most distant galaxies ever […]

M57 The Ring Nebula

2300 light years away in the constellation of Lyra lurks the beautiful Ring Nebula, otherwise known as Messier 57. This amazing object is a planetary nebula, possibly one of the most misleading terms in astronomy as it isn’t really a nebula nor does it have anything to do with planets. It is the result of […]

Hubble Space Telescope

Our space theme continues! This time we have a great image of the world-famous Hubble Space Telescope, designed and built in the 1970′s and 80′s before finally launching in 1990 aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery on STS-31. The telescope is housed in a small satellite and contains a 2.4 metre main mirror which provides light […]

The Very Large Array

This image shows us the famous Very Large Array in New Mexico. 27 separate radio telescopes laid out in an enormous Y-shape in the desert Plains of San Augustin. Each one of these dishes is 25 meters in diameter and is capable to observing separate targets. However, for important observations, like in this wallpaper, all […]

Arecibo Telescope

We take a slightly different turn with our Space theme today: this image is very much down to Earth. It’s the famous 1000 foot radio telescope in Arecibo, Peurto Rico. This is the largest single-aperture telescope in the world and has been gathering vitally useful scientific data for decades now. It’s achieved many firsts: it […]

M1, the Crab Nebula

We return to our Space theme today with this stunning image of the Crab Nebula, otherwise known as Messier 1. This is a bright supernova remnant in the constellation of Taurus, 6500 light years from Earth. The supernova itself was observed by Chinese astronomers in 1054 AD, and this provides us with a nearly unique […]

Fleeing Jupiter

Our Space Odyssey goes on with this amazing image from near the end of Odyssey Two; the Monoliths have acted at last, compressing Jupiter until it explodes into a new star. Dave Bowman, now a part of the Monolith, was able to warn the crew of the Leonov, but that had to sacrifice the Discovery, […]

Approaching the Monolith

Today we have one more wallpaper from 2001 A Space Odyssey. This time it shows the excavation team, led by Doctor Heywood Floyd, surveying the recently excavated Monolith, although know it as TMA-1 (for Tycho Magnetic Anomaly). It’s a historic moment, Man’s first encounter with a confirmed alien artifact. The Monolith is perhaps the epitome […]
