BIRTH OF THE STARS, Photos of the Universe
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....
