    A Spiral Galaxy Like The Milky Way

    Hubble Space Telescope

    This galaxy looks like the Milky Way from the outside. We’re about 2/3 of the way from the galactic nucleus to the edge of the galaxy.

    Just remind yourselves that some of the gas in the outer areas of the galaxy are shared with the Small and Large Magellanic Cloud galaxies.

    So remember to write your representatives that we want to wean our galaxy from the importation of “Foreign” gas!

    I’d like to know why god put us in the distant suburbs. I want to be in the center where all the gay bars are.

  12. Special Ed says:

    I like zooming in and seeing all the extraterrestrial traffic.

  13. subatomic_rage says:

    Too frikkin’ busy for my tastes. Used to be plenty of room between celestial bodies before Hubble. Now you can’t even see black sky. I gotta get outta here. Maybe Tatooine. It’s out of the reach of the Galactic Empire, or it used to be, anyway.
    Riding off into the dual sunsets…

    Actually we are in the boondocks section of the galaxy. Which is perfect seeing how God made the whole of humanity from the breeding of just a single pair of humans.

    Earth = WV
    Humans = Inbreds

    Explains a lot about humans.

    Go to Australia out in the middle west of Uluru at night and look up..

    It looks like a giant version of the picture!

    It is worth the trip!

    All that stuff whirling around the central black hole is like WATER GOING DOWN THE DRAIN – IT WILL ALL FALL INTO THE BLACK HOLE !!! But not for billions of years …

  18. JimD says:

    P.S. Those of us in the Northern Hemisphere are all looking the wrong way !!! Most of the action is visible only from the Southern Hemisphere …

  19. Mark T. says:

    Makes you feel so … sort of … insignificant, doesn’t it?

    Yeah, yeah. . Can we have your liver, then?
