That was so gorgeous that I am making it my avatar, and my background, and I am going to have walmart print it out for me in a nice poster size with a frame. Thanks a bunch for that. I had kinkos print out the super huge mars crater poster years back. The full size would have been 12 feet long, I had it cut down to four.

I used to have a whole folder with images like that for my backgrounds. I would never be able to decide one I can stay looking at, so I use a random desktop generator to shuffle through all my backgrounds. I lost all the images I used to have in a hd crash.

You would not by chance happen to have a collection on hand would you?

I was thinking i'd like to have it printed up in a very large size and put it up on the ceiling.

It would be great to lay down and look up at that, great way to relax after a long day.

I had a picture of some coral reefs that a diver in New Zealand sent me through reefcentral printed out in 16X20 through walmart.com photo center.I do believe it only cost like less than $20. would prefer to have this picture in its full size of course, which is something like 25 X 31.25 if you are using the high resolution image (2400X3000). In fact I will find out how much it costs right now.

$15.86 with free shipping to any walmart photo center in your area (entire country) . Actually $14.28 with my discount. Awesome this is so cool.

Hey I am allowed to do this right? The Reef pictures I was ok because I had the photgraphers permission. But this was publicly available through the web, and I am not going to make money off of it. Just for my personal collection. I am not breaking any laws right?

I don't think so it's on the net. But maybe since it's on NASA's website you could just email them and ask them if it's ok.

I forgot about tax, it ended up being $15.27 for a 25X30 poster size. I could not resist, it will be at my store between 9/5 and 9/8


I wonder what other High res photos I can find on their website. I wouldnt mind utilizing a whole wall for this stuff if it looks as good as that.

Another astounding picture to make my brain hurt.


It makes you so frustrated we live in such a boring bit of the Universe..Adds to my theory we were dumped here

Hey wait a minute, I think the picture is upside down.
Or maybe it should really be in landscape mode?

Say what you will about NASA, but they sure make pretty desktop backgrounds.
I really love these pictures, but I find it a little heartbreaking that they are essentially black & white images colored by an artist. And I do think the artist went just a little overboard with the green in this case...

Yea when you think about it, if we look up at the sky, we are seeing exactly what we see in these pictures. The stuff is there, its just our eyes are not designed to be able to disipher it.

The tehnology can see what we cant, but the reality is not necessarily in those brilliant colors. Still would be nice though. The stuff dreams are made of.
