Space is Big

The Hubble Space Telescope has been taking pictures from low earth orbit for 21 years already, and it's still doing OK work.

From the Space.com story:

A stunning new photo from the Hubble Space Telescope shows newborn stars studding a galaxy like bright blue jewels.

The spiral galaxy, called NGC 2841, lies in the constellation Ursa Major, about 46 million light-years from Earth. Hubble's newest instrument, the Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3), took the photo, in which newborn stars show up as bright blue clumps.

The universe is a pretty cool place.
