“The Orion Nebula, just 1,350 light-years from Earth, glows in shades of blue and violet in an image captured by the MPG/ESO 2.2-meter telescope at the European Southern Observatory’s La Silla facility in Chile. This view of the nebula, featured by the ESO on Jan. 19, offers astronomers a close-up view of a massive star-forming region in our celestial backyard. Infant stars are wrapped in the clouds of gas and dust.”
More amazing pictures can be found on NBC’s Month in Space (January 2011) site. Doesn’t it just make you want to leap outside yourself and touch something from the great beyond? There is so much more to life than we can even fathom. I believe the discovery of the infinite begins when we decide to take control of our lives and act rather than stay content to be acted upon.
