Si-lent void
In-fin-ite void
All is cold
All is airless

Round yon galaxies
Spin like a gyre
Shine so brightly
Then quickly expire

Sleep and never wake u-uup
Sleep and never wake up

Man these cards look Photoshopped, and possibly also InDesigned.

Cute! Though seeing "Peace" on a picture of Mars is sort of dissonance-inducing for me.

This is the only e-card you will ever need for Christmas.

Wow, gorgeous. Though I admit I am a sucker for this sort of extra-terrestrial imagery. My favorite Iphone app is the "gallery" of photos in SkyWalk.

A warning to the wise: once you clink on Joey Michaels' link, what is seen cannot be unseen (or heard).
