    My young son once asked me “What’s inside us?”. I said “Meat”. I no longer have such glib answers for the wonders of the universe. It seems that all there is is available to us to examine and marvel at. We should live so long. xerby

  22. This is a truly amazing photograph, if my understanding is correct, the Hubble’s field camera 3 reflects the hot gasses, producing – such strong photographs such as this one. Imagine if you could see this with the naked eye; I would end up sleeping during the day. Beautiful.

    The universe is full of wonder, when we shuffle off this mortal coil we get to go and check it out. Cool!

    I agree Andy… It is my understanding that what we are seeing on most of these amazing photos is Electrical Discharge on a massive scale, mixed with and illuminating the stuff that makes up space. Pretty incredible.
