Awe Full Images from Space Thanks to NASA

Check out the newly released photos from the refurbished Hubble Telescope.

Which is your favorite space shot?

So important to get our daily fill of awe.

The one pictured seems to be the people’s choice at the moment.

It is entitled, ‘Butterfly.’

NASA offers this description:

“What resemble dainty butterfly wings are actually roiling cauldrons of gas heated to more than 36,000 degrees Fahrenheit. The gas is tearing across space at more than 600,000 miles an hour -- fast enough to travel from Earth to the moon in 24 minutes!”
