Amazing Space...

Amazing Space..., originally uploaded by nrillustration.

To follow my Star Trek blog, I figured I would look up a few pictures of space and I found these stunning photos from the Hubble Telescope. They even offer FREE wallpaper for your desktop. The purple one adorns mine right now. Share this site with all your nerdy friends.

Bottom pic: A billowing tower of gas and dust rises from the stellar nursery known as the Eagle Nebula
