Now that's incredible. I hate thinking about the vastness of space, make my friggin head spin.

The picture reminds me of The Moody Blues 'Question of Balance' cover art.

^ 'Knights in White Satin' by The Moody Blues, was the song my wife and I danced to, at our wedding.

Thanks for sharing.

It's not actually a "Pic of Space from NASA."

From NASA:
"Above, an artist's impression shows a primordial quasar as it might have been, surrounded by sheets of gas, dust, stars and early star clusters."
http://www.nasa.gov/...eature_805.html

Still beautiful though. (Title changed for accuracy.)
