Photo of the day

A great photo gallery of NASA images at HuffPo of all places (in honor of the new Cosmos).  I’m a sucker for a good nebula:

Carina Nebula
NASA
This Hubble photo is of a small portion of a large star-birthing region in the Carina Nebula. Towers of cool hydrogen laced with dust rise from the wall of the nebula.

 

Oh, and I really enjoyed the first episode of the new Cosmos.  I do, however, miss the music from the original– so much better.
