Our animation and visualization for the Binary Star and Micro-Quasar SS 433 was selected for NASA’s astronomy picture of the day on 2020 August 31. This is the second time that a visualization of the Science Communication Lab for DESY has been awarded, which makes us very excited and honored. Our aim is not only to create artistic and aesthetic images of scientific research, but also to gain the approval of the involved scientists. What better recognition for this than a selection for the APOD website?
