Hi Gang,

Here is yet another gem from HST. It shows the star WR 124 and the surrounding gas ejected from it. This gas travelling at 150,000kmh gives a real sense of the explosion that created it. See if you agree here http://www.nasa.gov/image-feature/goddard/a-hubble-cosmic-couple

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