The Grand Design Spiral Galaxy M81


One of the things I love to look at in life are the stars, and I am sure a lot of you sci-fi loving geeks are the same. The above image shows the sharpest picture ever taken of the Grand Design Spiral Galaxy M81. It uses the combination of images taken in blue, visible, and infrared light to produce this incredible image.

You can head here to the European Homepage for the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope for the image in it’s original size of 22620×15200 or if you don’t have the monitor the size of a football pitch you can download it in some smaller sized resolutions that are perfect for you screen.

I don’t know about you, but I am severely tempted to download the image in its original size, even though it would take the guts of a day with my laughable Usave broadband connection.

And on a side note, you should definitely check out the Top 100 image on the site here.
