That Hubble thing has its uses…

…even for us non-astronomers!

This is a scaled-down version of the most detailed picture of a pin-wheel galaxy ever produced, composed of 51 separate images from the Hubble Space Telescope. Apparently it’s providing all sorts of useful data to scientists and other big-brained types.

But for me, it just provides a new desktop wallpaper every now and again. Yeah, I know, I’m a hippy. Deal with it. 🙂

One thought on “That Hubble thing has its uses…”

  1. Nice picture. I actually got a glimpse of this one in my telescope I no longer have. I even got a picture of it through my scope, but I was a beginner and my picture didn’t look anywhere near as nice as this one.
