    The Butterfly Nebula - NGC6302 (also called the Bug Nebula, Butterfly Nebula, or Caldwell 69) is a bipolar planetary nebula in the constellation Scorpius. The structure in the nebula is among the most complex ever observed in planetary nebulae. The spectrum of NGC 6302 shows that its central star is one of the hottest stars in the galaxy, with a surface temperature in excess of 200,000 K, implying that the star from which it formed must have been very large.

Physicists say we are made of stardust. Intergalactic debris and far-flung atoms, shards of carbon nanomatter rounded up by gravity to circle the sun. As atoms pass through an eternal revolving door of possible form, energy and mass dance in fluid relationship. We are man, we are thought, we are story. We are all star stuff.

M20 / NGC 6514: Trifid Nebula. This nebula is in Sagittarius. Its name means 'divided into three lobes.' The object is an unusual combination of an open cluster of stars; an emission nebula; a reflection nebula and a dark nebula. Distance to Earth: 5200 ly

Amazing. My God is THE artist...and even if this is photoshopped, my previous statement still stands, haha.

12. So, we know that Genesis was never intended to be a detailed scientific handbook, describing how God created the universe. It imparts a theological, not a scientific, message. (Imagine how confusing messages about gravity waves and dark matter might be to ancient Hebrew readers.)
