    For BobbyRay: Space - The Final Frontier

    I thought of BobbyRay and his wonderful space art when I saw this incredible Hubble Image. It's available as a 45MB download at http://tinyurl. com/yexzbw6 and the detail is a site to behold.

    Excerpted from the Hubble Site:
    December 15, 2009: Just in time for the holidays: a Hubble Space Telescope picture of hundreds of brilliant blue stars wreathed by warm, glowing clouds. The festive portrait is the most detailed view of the largest stellar nursery in our local galactic neighborhood. The massive, young stellar grouping, called R136, is only a few million years old and resides in the 30 Doradus Nebula, a turbulent star-birth region in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), a satellite galaxy of our Milky Way. There is no known star-forming region in our galaxy as large or as prolific as 30 Doradus. Many of the diamond-like icy blue stars are among the most massive stars known. Several of them are over 100 times more massive than our Sun. These hefty stars are destined to pop off, like a string of firecrackers, as supernovas in a few million years.

    The image, taken in ultraviolet, visible, and red light by Hubble's Wide Field Camera 3, spans about 100 light-years. The nebula is close enough to Earth that Hubble can resolve individual stars, giving astronomers important information about the birth and evolution of stars in the universe. The Hubble observations were taken Oct. 20-27, 2009. The blue color is light from the hottest, most massive stars; the green from the glow of oxygen; and the red from fluorescing hydrogen.

    Great find, byron! Thanks for sharing!
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    Thanks everybody who popped in. Sometimes I look at what nature produces and go "hmmm, why paint, the Universe has already done it all?". But then, I think, "hey' I'm a product of the Universe too, and anything I create is one more expression of its grandeur". It seems a good way to look at the paintings of my compatriots too - all new visions of the Creation unfolding, whatever the Creation is, and however it came to be.
