Just post pics of anything beyond the earth, i.e. anything in the space.
To infinity and beyond :)

Copy the link to the photo you want to add, click the 'add reply' button, then type img within third brackets, paste the link and type /img within third brackets(or just plain click the 6th box above the reply window and paste the link between the two bracketed parts).

For me, nebulae are one of the most beautiful things in the universe. I even a picture of one as my desktop background (not this one though).

Sun in ultraviolet. By the way, it reminds me of the Soundgarden's song "Black Hole Sun". ;-)

Yes, JJ, we can see you, and we can take a snapshot with The Hubble Space Telescope. ;-)

The first artificial satellite was launched by the Soviet Union in 1957.

A beehive of satellites encircling the Earth nowadays. To quote from the NASA site: "The debris objects shown in the image are an artist's impression based on actual density data. However, the debris objects are shown at an exaggerated size to make them visible at the scale shown."

As human beings, we wrap our minds around the concept of space/time, building tools
to extend our reach into that infinite reality. The Hubble Telescope is a triumph
of the ability to conceptualize that originally drove us to split stones to fashion tools.

This image was

"taken in ultraviolet, visible, and red light by Hubble's Wide Field Camera 3,
spanning about 100 light-years. 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. The nebula is close enough to Earth that Hubble can resolve
individual stars, giving astronomers important information about the stars' birth and evolution."

Gradyone, I'm afraid I can't see a picture you posted. I guess that a hotlinking is not allowed from the site you have chosen. Luckily, there is a link to the article and the great image, thanks. :)

WOwara, in my case your link doesn't work. Though, I could look at the picture with a commentary when I copied a link directly into my browser. :)


Jupiter was the target of a bombardment by a comet or asteroid in July 2009 (a picture below). The previous spectacular impact occured in 1994 when the fragments of a Shoemaker-Levy 9 comet were colliding with the gaseous giant in sequence.
