                Great stuff, Bernard.

                Wouldn't it be good to sit on the back verandah and be able to look at all these?

                  Gorgeous Bernard.
                  Doesn't matter if it's through a telescope or a microscope, it all looks the same.... Doesn't it all look like protoplasm?

                      Nari,

                      I agree but it is unfortunately impossible. These formations are alas too far for our blind eyes. Many images are as so far than thousands light years. They are all invisible for us. The Hubble space telescope in an open eye to the Universe and it brings us, every day, tons of star gems.

                      On Earth, we cannot have a chance to see such wonderments. It is a pity. We are so little and so insulated in the deep cold space.

                      I had last year, a marvellous experience in the Alps (near 3000m), we were camping in mid June and we were awaken by light outside ( and a bit by cold, too). The sky was an enchantment with millions and millions diamonds. I never saw such marvel before and I had this thought; 'I have an incredible chance to belong to humanity and to be conscious of the beauty of Nature and Universe'.

                      Diane,
                      Sure, cell are showing same wonderments and we get the same difficulties to apprehend them, in the microscopic direction.

                      Cells and Stars all around us, showing their mysteries.

                        Er, Bernard... reALITY check.... if you hadn't seen these pictures you wouldn't have posted them... :lol:

                        We are one with our telescpoes and microscopes. They are extensions of us, bringing images of was is formerly unseen, to be seen by masses. We are tool using apes. Who cares if we are little and insulated in the deep cold space. Don't go all angsty on me friend, we have a beautiful planet that keeps us warm and safe and with friends. For now anyway. Enjoy the ride. What a show!

                          Bernard..

                          It is what you think about, when you look at the night sky, that matters. now we can 'see' with the help of Chandra and Hubble, what is really there, and think differently.

                          Remember the Little Prince and his rose???? Only a pilot flying a dodgy plane in a Patagonian sky could have conceived that emotion!

                            Hi Somasimplers,

                            There is a free software called Celestia that help us to realize the startrip!
                            http://sourceforge.net/projects/celestia/

                            There is a version for mac users.
                            I will bring you some useful links to reach the stars!
