Is This the Best Space Image Ever?

I don't know, but Wired Magazine seems to think it is.  It's actually courtesy the Hubble telescope and celebrates the twentieth anniversary of Hubble's being out there looking around.

Better take a look now, because even interplanetary space voyagers apparently don't live forever.

(I'd have put the picture here, but it wouldn't be as impressive as Wired's version.)


  1. Oh, that's wonderful. I had not seen that image, but the link you provided does link to the famous one I was expecting to see, the "Pillars of Creation."

    I should buy a book of Hubble images, look aat it, then go somewhere dark and clear and stare at the sky.

  2. Glad you liked it, Peter. I'm not totally clear on when they expect Hubble to 'die' but it will be a sad day in my opinion.
