Hi Everyone,
I have been wondering how Apple got the Nebula backgrounds (the ones in Leopard and Snow Leopard) and by that I mean how were they made and just generally how they got them. This may sound really noobish or silly but I am just curious and I find this stuff interesting (nerd, I know). So if you could help it would be much appreciated!

Thanks,
King Mook Mook

P.S. Here are the backgrounds if you did not know about them: Leopard: http://www.1stclasswallpapers.com/backgrounds/computer_and_internet/image/mac_os_x_leopard_space.jpg
Snow Leopard: http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3434/3818728734_dbc0b063f1.jpg

They look like processed images of the Orion nebula to me, an example of which can be found here...

It is in fact the same ORION Nebula, and i subconsciously chose it to be enhanced by this guy (link below)... then saw the video and went, HA! thats the NEBULA that i submitted!!!
