    I normally would not mention a news story on the board, however the new photos from NASA from the Hubble are so incredibly beautiful, one looks like a huge butterfly. Anyway, I thought these photos would appeal to the creative spirits here, so have a peek here:

    They are great. I figured they must be on the NASA website, too, and went to check. Sure enough, they are. You can make them full screen from the NASA page. (http://www.nasa.gov )

    DH is a hobby astronomer so he keeps me up-to-date on all the latest space stuff. It is amazing that Hubble still works at all, let alone that well.

    Martina, you need to talk to that hubby of yours! :D

    Didn't he mention, Hubble underwent a major repair and upgrade mission. She's been refurbished! What we are seeing now is the result of it's new state-of-the-art telescope. The photos are the totally stunning. I hope you saw them.
