Once you get over the fact that Space is a cold, lethal vacuum, its beautiful. I’m a very space-y person, and yes, I still uphold the dream of being an astronaut. Here is a collection of beautiful images, mainly of nebulae:
Not sure which nebula this is. Great start.
The Cats Eye nebula.
The Owl Nebula. A perfect circle (aren’t you loving my in depth cosmic commentary?)
The famous Orion nebula. Also the name of a power company. Eheh.
The striking result of two stars colliding. (Geddit? Its striking when two things strike each other. *chuckles*
The Kronberger 61. Also known as the soccer ball nebula.
Ah, yes, the intricate crab. Very…. intricate.
A phantom cosmic hand surfaces from deep space.
The last moments of a star’s life captured by Hubble.
Inside the Eagle nebula, E42 is the embryo of a star almost identical to our sun.
The freakishly symmetrical Red Square nebula (I really don’t know how they come up with such original names!)
