A zoom-in view toward the center of the Milky Way shows a panorama of the dense disk of our galaxy, then closes in on the pink cloud of the Lagoon Nebula, also known as Messier 8. [Story]

I've always had a strong yearning to explore the universe and I don't take technology that shows us a taster of what's out there for granted, we should feel privileged to have been born into an age that allows us to see imagery as spectacular as this.

I agree. I'd explore the universe in a heartbeat if we were in an era where space travel was common for everyone. I hope it will be in my lifetime.
