Striking shots of the Milky Way under a thunderstorm, snow reflecting the northern lights, and the International Space Station flying between sun spots are among the photographs shortlisted for this year's Insight Investment Astronomy Photographer of the Year award.

Astronomer and competition judge Dr Marek Kulula told Business Insider that astrophotography is both an essential scientific tool and "an invitation to take a pause from our busy lives and reflect on our place in the grand scheme of things."

Many of the photographs in this collection didn't come easy. One of the Northern Lights in Swedish Laplan,d for example, was taken from a tiny cave in -15 degrees Fahrenheit.

The competition winners will be announced on October 23 at the Royal Greenwich Observatory in London.

"In today’s light-polluted cities, it’s becoming harder and harder for most of us to see the full glory of the night sky but [this competition] reminds us that we live on a very beautiful planet, in a universe full of wonders," Kulula told Business Insider.

"The camera can see things that the human eye can't," Kulula said. "It can take long exposures, gathering light over minutes or hours until incredibly faint and distant objects become visible."

It took photographer Jake Mosher several test shots to make sure that Polaris was in the right position, but things lined up while the moon provided enough light to illuminate the foreground.

Doctors warned that leaving the European Union without a deal would cause disruption for almost one million patients with rare diseases, as well as significant delays for cancer patients The BMA has called for a second Brexit referendum. "The UK government has finally started planning to ensure the health sector and industry are prepared in the short term for a no deal Brexit, but this is too little, too late," said the BMA.


LONDON — A no-deal Brexit would risk "catastrophic" consequences for cancer patients, other people suffering from diseases, the health workforce, and the nation's health, British doctors warned this week.

In a briefing paper, the British Medical Association (BMA) warned that the UK's recent scramble to prepare for a no-deal Brexit that in a worst-case scenario, a no-deal Brexit could:

Automakers are on the verge of a prolonged period of rapid change to the way they do business, thanks to the combined disruptive forces of growing on-demand mobility services and self-driving cars, which will start to come to market in the next couple of years.

By the end of 2019, Google spinoff Waymo, Uber, and GM all plan to have fleets of autonomous cars deployed in various US cities to provide on-demand rides for passengers. By eliminating the cost of the driver, these rides are expected to be far cheaper than typical Uber or Lyft rides, and even cheaper than owning a car for personal transportation.
