Pussy Riot’s communally conceived fashion attack is clearly visible in the YouTube video of the group’s performance on the pulpit of the church. All the elements are there: gaudy, ripped-to-fit minis and shifts in contrasting solid colors with bright tights, boots and those haunting balaclavas. “Different colors explode when the action is performed,” said Bullet, a member of the collective who helps the girls make sure they look ready for the stage … or barricades. Indeed, the video proves you can always spot a Pussy Rioter in a crowd — kneeling in prayer or being dragged off by police, she’s a flash of moving color, never an individual girl.

The Orion Nebula is one of the most scrutinized and photographed objects in the night sky, and is among the most intensely studied celestial features. The nebula has revealed much about the process of how stars and planetary systems are formed from collapsing clouds of gas and dust. Astronomers have directly observed protoplanetary disks, brown dwarfs, intense and turbulent motions of the gas, and the photo-ionizing effects of massive nearby stars in the nebula.
