Feeling a bit nebulous?

crab nebula

JPL’s PhotoJournal site has released a new composite Hubble image of the Crab Nebula, nearly 4000 pixels on a side.

There’s a stunning amount of structure in here, and yet even the “mist” is made up of countless zillions of stars, each of them in turn countless times larger than our whole world.

Definitely one to add to your wallpaper collection.
