I’m not sure how many of you follow astronomy. I guess the extent to which I do is if I hear on the news to look out for a comet, or that on this particular day you might be able to see Jupiter. You know, that kind of stuff. But little did I know how far we’ve really traveled and how much “closer” we are to outer space.
And by closer I mean our technology is so badass now that pictures of planets like Mars and Jupiter look like they’re in our living rooms. The pictures you are about to see are not photoshopped. They were all taken using the Hubble Telescope. Not even taken from space.
Pretty amazing stuff after the jump….
Thanks to Reuters for these amazing pictures. It’s hard to believe these are real.
