    I am always in awe when viewing pictures like this... they help to show the enormity of the universe and how tiny we are.

    Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today.

    Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything, but you still can't help but chuckle when you see one tumble down the stairs.

    Yes, I saw it on the news last night. So glad we were able to save it and extend it's life so it could continue taking these marvelous pictures of space. Anybody want to go to Mars on a one way ticket???
