What kind of dumbass god would place intelligent lifeforms within certain galaxies and then set up laws of nature that ensured these galaxies were hurtling away from each other at speeds that could never be overcome, thus guaranteeing his favoured created lifeforms never got to meet each other? edit on 30-1-2013 by IvanAstikov because: typical typo


I don't know but if you were smarter you'd know that. So that's a fairly dumb ass question.

nah , im pretty damn sure you arent going to get hubble quality pictures with a 25 dollar kids telescope lol

anyways, it was a crappy xmas gift lol

well i did get to see moon up close and it is cool to see some details a little bit more than with naked eye, but nowhere near as cool as owning the thing that can make those pics lol.





p.s going to school for art. i see colors that arent even there ^^

Its sad knowing that we will never achieve technology to visit these places. With the economy going like it is our future is bleak

Wow, just visited nasa.gov and they have this picture. It blows my mind!
This is part of the Orion nebula, and use can see stars racing through the interstellar gas creating bow shock waves.

whats really sad is we dont need money to achieve this but the will of man, sadly, that has been lost a long time ago.

Not to all of us.
The will of man is still strong alive and well, the gov't just forgot about it and are in for one hell of a shock sometime soon

Damn there's that van outside again

Those images of clusters and nebulas are mind-blowing whenever I see them. Even though the colors are just representations of gases and materials that scientists interpret or measure to be in those areas, it is still a beautiful and spectacular sight. At the same time it makes us wonder why on earth there has been no 'contact' with anybody as of yet ...

What makes you say they are representations of whats there, the GAS is there the colours depend on what was used to photograph them and what the detector/sensor was sensitive to ie visible , ir , uv light etc.

Hmmm ... I got that wrong, didn't I? Sorry for that, but I was referring to an earlier post by cody599 on page 1 of this thread. He mentioned that he didn't want to ruin the magic, but that the images are 'not' exactly representing what's there. What it comes down to is probably, that the clusters would look different to the 'naked eye' ... obviously I'm not an expert in this field, but thanks again for the explanation!

That's ok but looking through even very large telescopes you would get very little hint of the colours , many pictures from hubble are over many mins/hours and amateur astrophotographers will take many images and use staking software to bring out detail and colour.

I heard from one amateur astronomer who had an opportunity to look through a very large telescope (48" if I remember correctly) and he said he saw the true colours of a planetary nebula, and also reported golden colour of the Homunculus nebula.

The bigger the telescope, and the brighter the object, the more colour you will see. Red is the hardest to see, as it has the lowest energy. Many amateur astronomers see pea-green colour in the Orion and other nebulae.
