    Yet more stunning pictures from Hubble...
    According to American scientists, these images bear "remarkable similarities to [Vincent van Gogh’s The Starry Night], complete with never-before-seen spirals of dust swirling across trillions of miles of space".

    Beautiful. I wonder if the absinthe had anything to do with Van Gogh's depiction? ;)

    Hey, leave absynthe out of this. The Green Goddess bows to no one.

    When i was a child, starry night was one of my favorite pieces. This is a very interesting discovery, and very striking. And yes, it's a great example of why we should not kill the Hubbell for some rediculous pipe dreams.
