A Dying Star is a Beautiful Thing.

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

Recently NASA released a photo of a star as it is dying and it’s remains are floating into space.  This is by far one of the most beautiful photos I’ve seen.

This is not an image that you normally see as it’s not something that happens fairly often. With how nice this photo is you would think that it is digitally rendered. However, it is an actual photo taken from the Hubble telescope. It has been put through an infrared filter to bring out the colors and different gases which gives it this amazing look.

One day our sun will too explode into an awesome site such is this. Unfortunately, It is a shame that due to budget cuts these kind of programs are no longer as big as they once were.  These sort of sites are all around our universe and it’s stuff like this that we want to know more about as we explore.
