Pictures taken by NASA/ESA’s Hubble Space Craft.
The amazingly smooth, golden and almost edible surface of one of our closer neighbours, Mars.
The world at night.
Notice how we in the West have used up most of the world’s resources with our bright lights. It makes you wonder if our brightness is a direct result of the rest of the world’s darkness.
The Chungyang mountains in Taiwan. A brilliant view from Space, showing the snowy tops of the mountains.
The birth of tiny baby stars from the head of Orion. Imagine being there and taking this picture.
The gorgeous span of fertile Asia.
The beautiful, gushing Niagara Falls.
Houston, Texas in the USA. I must say it looked nothing like this when I was there.
A storm of oxygen, hydrogen and sulphur gases, taken near to a region called the Swan Nebula.
This is called the “evil eye” this is what happens when two galaxies, after fighting for the same space up there, just collide with each other, causing both to eventually die out.
A close-up of Jupiter in all its glory.
This is called NGC6369. Not a very romantic name for something so beautiful. It’s also called “Little Ghost” as it’s the poor remains of a dying star.
These Space pictures were taken by NASA/ESA’s Hubble Space Craft.
Somehow, the world seems even more beautiful when taken from outerspace. Maybe one day in the not to distant future, Space will indeed be a popular holiday destination.
