I was looking at videos on a website for the Hubble space telescope and the videos just looked too beautiful to be real. I even wondered if perhaps they were animations. I know that sounds insane but you have to see them.
I mean, look at that picture. Can you believe how amazingly gorgeous it is? And the colors. Is there really anything that stunning and perfect just … out there? (And I don’t get to see it except in pictures? No fair.)
Kinda makes me feel like we’re wasting our time. Like everyone who isn’t involved in eradicating disease and suffering and making the world a better place in some way should be involved in space exploration. Okay, there are other worthy pursuits, other areas of knowledge worth exploring, but still.
Come on. Look at that. (I just watched Finney do some pretty amazing contortions in order to lick his foot to clean it and that was pretty good, though.)
