Hi Gang,

This is one of those images that is best when you choose to look at the image full screen and just sit and look at this amazing image. It is of the huge GUM 56 nebula where new stars are being born from the nebulae produced by dying stars and supernova explosions. Taken by the 2.2 metre MRG/ESO telescope in Chile this image shows dramatically that you don't need to necessarily be in space to produce truly stunning images. Take a look at the image and decide for yourself here http://www.eso.org/public/news/eso1535/?lang

To me astronomy is looking up and thinking "What the heck is going on up there!!"
