Hubble still cranking ’em out

Wanna see something gorgeous?

That may look like a sci-fi poster of some sort, but it actually is a new photo taken by the Hubble telescope (which turned 20 over the weekend). NASA describes it as a “three-light-year-tall pillar of gas and dust that is being eaten away by the brilliant light from nearby stars.”

Bastards.
