BIRTH OF THE STARS, Photos of the Universe

Updated on May 9, 2011

Whenever I want to change my perception and see above my limited human existence, I like to explore pictures of universe (they are in some of my Hubs as well).

Thanks to the NASA Hubble Space telescope, from 1990, we can travel through the space (and time) while watching the most astonishing pictures of universe. The photos catch the light which comes to us after many thousands light years of travelling, isn`t that amazing? For us, what we see on the photo is happening NOW, for that place in the universe this is already past, some of the stars we see do not even exist any more...or are completely transformed.  

Almost every day, Hubble telescope reveals new secrets of the world of stars, nebulas and galaxies, brings us to our beginnings, connects us with waves of eternity and peace.

We can watch the birth and death of the stars, birth of the galaxies, their uniting and transformation.

All worries of everyday life just must disappear while looking at such pictures...

Here are my favorits pics of some nebulas.

According to Wikipedia, nebula is an interstellar cloud of dust, hydrogen gas, helium gas and plasma.. Nebulae often form star-forming regions, such as in the Eagle Nebula, Orion Nebula etc.. In these regions the formations of gas, dust and other materials "clump" together to form larger masses, which attract further matter, and eventually will become big enough to form stars. The remaining materials are then believed to form planets, and other planetary system objects.

So enjoy pictures from the beginning of creation ....of our visible universe.....and never forget that we are part of the same intelligent energy which forms planets, stars and galaxies....

When you see some photos of the Universe for the first time, do they somehow look familiar to you?

      It's very simple to make any nmebur of extravagant claims. Is that one testable and falsifiable? Possibly not, and if not, would it make any difference to us either way whether the claim was true or untrue? Probably not. What would be far more useful would be finding a very simple way to demonstrate to people the justification for making the claim. That would be a greater challenge than? just saying it, but given the above considerations, it probably wouldn't make any difference to us anyway.

      This why for me GOD really does exist. I can not explain the reason and beginning of the birth of all that we see in the Universe. Life has so many mysteries but the universe for me is the climax. Good God thank for letting me know how wonderful you are...

      You said: "We will visit them one day, be sure in that. If not in this life, then in another one."

      Do you mean that you will be born again as a spaceship?

      These are almost too beautiful to be real! It's amazing how tremendous and gigantic space really is. These nebula must be billions of miles in size! I absolutely loved this hub (hub love?) Thank you once again, Tatjana-Mihaela.

      What an awesome Hub that makes me feel so connected to the world in so many ways. I have a Hub with several of these Hubble pictures too and know that the Universe is our body, our home and the stars, galaxies, and nedula reflect our inner beauty. Thank you for this wonderful gift on a Sunday morning! namaste

      Well TP, we do not know a lot, but when we reveal something new - it comes to us like very pleasant surprise.

      Altough we might see these photos for the first time, they somehow look very familiar to us, don´t they?

      Many thanks for the visit and comment.

      It really does put it all in perspective. There is so much we don't know about our universe, galaxy and even our world. Thanks for the wonderful hub.

      Hi, Tatjana: What a beautiful way to end my day, looking at photos of our awesome universe, and listening to the peaceful Youtube music. For sure my vibrations increased as I connected to the energy of this hub. I too love to look at the stars when I want to raise my thoughts and energy.

      Will share this hub with family and friends. By the way, I sent your hub about the karmic healing angels to my sister and she loved your hub. Told her you are a healer and she can hire your services; let her know in case she is inclined to contact you at some point. :) She has trauma from the loss of her boy four years ago, is doing great considering her loss, but has days when the pain overwhelms her, and last week was one of those weeks.

      Thank you for this!

      Namaste
