Hand Me A Pulsar




I've always love the cosmos. The mystery and grand beauty of the heavens makes all my problems seem amazingly insignificant. Here is an image from NASA of a pulsar. The blue color is actually colors added on to identify the X-rays emanating from the pulsar. The red bit is gas clouds.

Go HERE for more.
