The Super cool "Space Pillars" that were photographed dome time ago and brought about amazement from the population may be toppled. According to
some scientist who have analyzed satellite and other pictures, they may be done. These Pillars are the coolest looking things to be published and
photographed in Space in a long, long time. Is it true are they gone? Read on! Theories as to why?
SEATTLE - They helped open the public's eyes to the wonders of space when they were first photographed in 1995, but a new study suggests the famous
Pillars of Creation in the Eagle Nebula might have already been toppled long ago, and that what the Hubble Space Telescope actually captured was their
A new picture of the Eagle Nebula shot by NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, presented here at the 209th meeting of the American Astronomical Society,
show the intact pillars next to a giant cloud of glowing dust scorched by the heat of a massive stellar explosion known as a supernova [image].
"The pillars have already been destroyed by the shockwave," said study leader Nicolas Flagey of The Institut d'Astrophysique Spatiale in France.

Absolutely amazing structures like these are a shame to have gone. Whether or not they are truly gone is of course up for debate, however there seems
to be a varying degree of validity to that claim by science. I think this is very interesting and would like to hear what others opinions are on this.
Does anyone know of any other information on this subject that is of significant relevance?
Man i just had a look at some of the pictures on that site. Aint looked at pics like that for a while. It makes you think doesnt it? How grateful we
should all be to have lived and been part of something so spectacular as our universe its utterly amazing. How petty it seems then that as miniscule
as we are compared to the rest of whats out there we still go to war and fight over small bits of land kinda crazy dont you think.
If there is a god then what a man he is for creating this wonderful place i sure will be giving him the high 5 on the way in the pearly gates
