The kids toss about the word “awesome”, but this Hubble photo of deep space is truly awesome.
Please take a second to click the link above with has a giant photo that can be navigated like Google Earth. Just do five left-mouse clicks to zoom-in and behold! (You can drag your mouse around the photo).
What appear to be stars in the sky are actually galaxies, Brazilians of them!
With even a modest galaxy like the Milky Way containing 200 billion stars, we now see that there are billions of galaxies!
The truth is out there - galaxies everywhere!
Whenever I hear a scientist acting pretentious I like to remind myself that we are so primitive that we cannot eve see to the end of our own universe. . . .
I was watching the Nova TV show on black holes and they say that the Milky Way is on a collision course with the Andromeda galaxy in only ten million years.
That’s how much time mankind has to devise intergalactic travel, if we are not already extinct by then . . .
This is the true meaning of awesome . . .
Is that first picture of the hubble deep field? I saw a video on that a few weeks ago:
