Our Brightest Star



In case you missed seeing them in May, here's another look at one of the incredible photographs of the space shuttle on its mission to rendezvous with the Hubble Telescope. It was to be the last time humans would have contact with the space telescope that has provided so many fantastic images of our universe and beyond. Thanks to Thierry Legault for sharing his remarkable photograph.

hello! i saw this image when it came out - it's a stunning reminder of our achievements and also our humanity as it is so small and represents the very best we can do at this point. somehow brave against the backdrop of our star. have a peaceful afternoon. steven
