NASA has announced the winners of its fourth annual "Photographer of the Year" awards.

With winners and runners-up selected in several categories, highlights include glimpses at otherworldly test locations including a wind tunnel and an anechoic chamber.

While elsewhere, a portrait of NASA astronaut Jonny Kim shows him wearing a high-altitude pressure suit worn in the WB-57 aircraft, which is capable of flying at altitudes over 60,000 feet.
