Cool science pictures

Can anyone find high-res versions of these?

This one is a better picture of the space ribbon left behind by a supernova; I may have posted about it before, mentioning its resemblance to something from Star Trek.

This is a photo of a volcano eruption, taken from space. The clouds have parted around the plume.

My ex had this great coffee table book of biology, geology, and astronomy pictures, but I can't find it on Amazon. Too bad.
