17 gorgeous galaxies
Some of these galaxies look a little like colorful tie-dye experiments, others like Space Age Rorschach tests; you may even recognize a few from the posters that dotted your elementary-school science room. Take a moment and marvel at the scope and beauty of our universe in these stunning NASA images of the Milky Way and other galaxies.

Why do we think we are so powerful? Man should be much more humble than he really is. Trillions of stars, billions of light years.....and we think living to be 90 is a big deal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If man could only remember how delicate and precious his short existence is, then he might embrace his fellow man more than he does. Remember to always, "GIVE AND FORGIVE" and then and only then will man exist forever. Thanks to all those who explore the universe and use that great knowledge for the good of all mankind.
