Hubble Art

A laid back day, listening to Bach, waiting to finish up the garden. I ended up here at Hubble Heritage site , a wonderful expression of the beauty and immensity of the Universe. One wonders if spending dollars on this sort of pure research is worth it. I was a believer from my first cereal box rocket when what we see and do now was barely a dream. The web has certainly opened up our space program so we now have access to far more of the missions and reasoning behind them.
If you’re a space geek it’s great to have “numbers” as one perspective on it all. But it’s the incredible, beautiful images that reach out to most people.
I’m not a person who believes exploration is fundamental to our species, to being human. But I’m grateful to the people who are explorers, for exploration’s sake as I firmly believe knowledge for knowledge sake is never a waste of resources.

In beauty I walk
Beauty before me
Beauty behind me
Beauty all around
In beauty I walk

Hubble and Jupiter

Hubble’s Stunning New Pictures of Jupiter http://www.skyandtelescope.com/astronomy-news/hubbles-stunning-pictures-of-jupiter-10152015/

Beautiful though to small and short video of Saturn. It’s pretty cool, the project to take regular photos of the outer planets.
And so now we start to make visible the history of a small part of space.
