I found this while surfing today and I have to say I found it at least a mesmerizing as silly cats or people acting badly, maybe more so. And if you think of space as colorless and plain think again.  I haven't really followed NASA or Hubble over the years but I have to say that this compilation of the best pictures over 2 decades is amazing.  See if you don't agree. After all in a way we have kind of paid for some of the trip so get you money's worth.
