    My grandpa was an airplane pilot

    Dust Clouds As A Star Is Born... Very Cool

    This is an amazing image of the M51 galaxy. It's a combination of an Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) picture and a Near Infrared Camera and Multi-object Spectrometer (NICMOS) picture. By aligning the two astronomers were able to remove the stars, and just leave the dust, as...

    Someone in another group was asking

    why we only see one side of the moon. I think that is a great question. I remember when I asked the same question and started researching it. To keep it short, the amount of time it takes the moon to rotate once is equivalent to the amount of time it takes to revolve around the...

    Yep, and I wish more people did too.

    When you consider the sheer vast expanse of outer space and our relative insignificance on this pale blue dot we call earth, it just kinda put's life in perspective. Yeah!

    Mind Blowing

    I enjoy seeing the pictures taken by the Hubble Space telescope. It shows that there's so much 'outer space' out there. There's a picture that shows over a thousand galaxies in various stages of evolution which makes me think there has to be some kind of life out there, whether...
