    Amazing New Photos from Space

    We've been discussing similar photos (and the new geysers on Mars) in the Skeptics Club, but this is of general interest to many. First up, this new picture from the Hubble telescope of the Large Magellanic Cloud:



    But as to this photo, look closer -- Ive zoomed in on one section. See if you see it:


    See those fuzzies in the picture? Those are galaxies, seen right through all the garbage floating in the LMC. Were peering through our galaxy to see another, and then poking right through that one to those beyond.

    Next photograph is from the Spitzer telescope, and it's of the gas clouds in the Constellation Orion:



    Beautiful. Just like a painting. It blows the mind how huge our universe is.

    Maybe it's just me, but in the first picture in the middle, I see what almost looks like the face of a woman with mid-length brown hair with white all around her. Look closer and you can see it.

    Beautiful photos, F, simply amazing. I've always been in awe of the universe.
    Marge: Barnacle Bill's Home Pregnancy Test? Homer, shouldn't we have gone with a better-known brand?
    Homer: But Marge, this one came with a corn-cob pipe!
    Marge: [reading from the test box] "Ahoy, Maties! If the water turns blue, a baby for you! If purple ye see, no baby thar be!"
    Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
    Marge: Pink.
    Homer: D'oh!
    Marge: "If ye test should fail, to a doctor set sail!"

    Absolutely beautiful, and it makes my brain hurt to think of how big the universe is. Does anyone else see the UFO?

    It overwhelms me to even think about! Our kids are just getting the concept of outer space and I see them get the same look when they really stop and think about it. Wow.
