Why the **** is the Spire not on here?
Or the Pillars of Creation?

Pillars of Creation:
#135 to #134 - alfjnn (09/25/2012) [-]
The Spire.

(My personal Favorite.)
User avatar #136 to #135 - alfjnn (09/25/2012) [-]
******* A bros.

You all should check out the size of the universe flash game.
It's pretty enlightening.

And Nebulas are ******* beautiful.
So are Space Dust Structures.
It's pretty crazy, just take into account, the spire. The earth isn't even see-able on that image (Size wise. It's so tiny compared to it.)

Think about all of the potential intelligent alien creatures in those colliding galaxies. Their screams will never be heard across the vastness of space as they are thrust into oblivion.

The shifts in gravity might cause some few stars to be thrown out of the new galactic system, but they planets should stay in orbit around the stars.

They'd be fine.

So what... NASA has live footage of everything going on everywhere?

No wonder why american government supports this. This **** is really impressive, and scary.

actually barack obama shut nasa down

>new mars rover Curiosity
>new James Webb Orbital Telescope
>Wat?
User avatar #93 to #91 - noodlelover (09/25/2012) [-]
sponsored by russian/chinese space travel not NASA
#109 to #93 - subarumaster (09/25/2012) [-]
I hope you're trolling, Obama decided not to keep funding the Shuttle Program which was long overdue anyway. Especially with a relativity poor safety record.

Most of the world's major countries do contribute a little funding to all modern space missions but the US still funds the majority.

Guise...
I'm about to say something that may sound stupid....

If NASA and physicians have millimeter telescopes, and take pictures of Nebulas and **** that are galaxies away from us...
Why the **** don't they use that **** to take HD quality pictures of Mars surface if it is relatevely closer?
Why send Curiosity?
#186 to #184 - andojt (09/25/2012) [-]
because science
#187 to #184 - anon (09/25/2012) [-]
Because they wanted samples and can't exactly get those with a camera? Please, logical thinking has never killed anyone, try it out.
User avatar #219 to #187 - mistandshadow (09/25/2012) [-]
Try not being such a faggeting douche next time would ya?
User avatar #211 to #184 - wolverinebamf (09/25/2012) [-]
I don't think those pictures are taken with a normal camera. I think the telescopes that receive those images use a non-visible wavelength of light, and the images are what it should look like.
User avatar #217 to #184 - theunitarian (09/25/2012) [-]
Those images are actually composites from three different types of telescopes. An X-ray, infrared, and optical telescope. Also, they're false-color images meaning that they've been manipulated to represent different levels of light intensity, not actual colors.

Curiosity was made to sample the soil and monitor the surface of Mars up close.  While we can get some decent pictures with the HST, we gain nowhere near as much information or detail as we get when we send a probe or orbiter. (And not to mention the images of the sun and galaxies are looking at something extremely large from a far distance, so it's far easier to see in a relative detail than per say, a single crater on a planet in our own solar system.  Much as you could compare taking a picture of a skyscraper from afar, to taking a picture of a single crack on the corner.  You need to be closer to see it.   
   
Pic related.  It's the best picture we can get of Pluto without sending a probe.

the rover is able to test soil
User avatar #210 to #208 - braddlesxp (09/25/2012) [-]
let me explain a little better, sorry.

there are rocks on mars right? now one of the things they are looking for is rounded off rocks, now what does that mean?
rounded rocks means that there was once water to shape the rocks.
#229 to #210 - marioauditore (09/25/2012) [-]
What if the rounded rocks are a form of life?
User avatar #185 to #184 - PolarFroster (09/25/2012) [-]
Apparently the rovers are supposed to bring back physical samples...
User avatar #190 to #185 - skuser (09/25/2012) [-]
I'm cool about that, but my concern is about the telescope/pictures thing...
#188 to #185 - andojt (09/25/2012) [-]
nah, they analyse the samples, but don't come back
User avatar #189 to #184 - Himynameisjacob (09/25/2012) [-]
Because we're curious.
User avatar #197 to #189 - kintakuntai (09/25/2012) [-]
Why so curious..?
