I take massive NASA images and make them easily viewable. Milky Way. Carina. To zoom, click on the pics. All Hubble Images Sorted by Resolution. Excellent Video Narrated by Morgan Freeman [clip from Cosmic Voyage]. posted by nickyskye (21 comments total) 40 users marked this as a favorite

A few HST images (including one of the the Orion nebula) were modeled in three dimensions for the Hubble 3D IMAX movie... though personally I found the true-stereo footage of the Hubble repair much more impressive. It's a pretty stupendous film, particularly for anyone who ever dreamed of being an astronaut.

I dreamed we'd all be astronauts by now.

I needed both cosmic perspective on the troubles of Earth, and new wallpaper for my work computer, so this works out fine.

Hearing Morgan Freeman describe the size of the universe makes me feel so fucking small. I wish he stuck to penguins. (Just kidding, it's an awesome video.)

If these photos belong to NASA, why won't he let you download the zoomable flash objects?

Finally. I can tell my minions to Zoom and Enhance and I get more than just a blurry mess! This is incredible!
