This is what you’ve been missing, wasting your time on Earth, not exploring the reaches of space.

NASA just release these images of the Pillars of Creation. These Ominous columns reach through space like claws. Some say elephant trunks. They are composed of dust and gas. They reside within an open cluster of stars known as the Eagle Nebula.

These aren’t the first photographs of this wonder of the universe. The first one’s were taken 20 years ago. What makes this different is the new photographic technology. The Hubble Space Telescope was upgraded in 2009 with the latest photo tech. That is why these just released images appear so spectacular.

So now you want to take a trip to outer space and get your own photographs? Not sure if you can take a selfie out there. But buckle up in your space vehicle of choice. It’s a 65,000 light year trip.
