Celestial Emissions - Eta Carina Nebula by strongmanmike2002. Glowing regions of gas in our galaxy are known as emission nebulae. Imaging these nebulae through filters that only allow the passage of very specific wavelengths of light produces this type of image.

Trigger-Happy Star Formation (NASA, Chandra, 8/12/09). his composite image, combining data from the Chandra X-ray Observatory and the Spitzer Space Telescope shows the molecular cloud Cepheus B, located in our Galaxy about 2,400 light years from the Earth. A molecular cloud is a region containing cool interstellar gas and dust left over from the formation of the galaxy and mostly contains molecular hydrogen.

First thought: Pull out the 3D glasses! Second thought: Rose is on the other side with 10.5 [Tennille J notes: "This is not an actual picture of the void. This is a picture of a dark nebula (it is much smaller than the actual void). The void is only "visible" through microwaves."]

A Void In Space That Matters

"Space"  Can't help but follow that up with   "...The final fronteer. These are the voyages of the star ship Enterprize...."
