Hubble Space Telescope Deep Field
November 26, 2013
So often like many other people, I can sometimes be consumed by "the little things" in my life. They include appointments, schedules, work, chores, errands and more. I'm also bombarded as well with all of the daily news of what's going on here in North Carolina, the U.S. and even the world itself. It often seems so very routine. However, from time to time, I come across science related articles and photos that take away my breath. For a brief time, they remind me of the beauty, complexity and immensity of the Universe. One such photo is the Hubble Space Telescope Deep Field image. Peering far back into deep space and time, this photo truly expresses the enormity of the Universe and inspires me to want to learn as much as I can about it!
An asteroid or comet headed for Earth is the only large-scale natural disaster we can prevent. Working together to fund our Shoemaker NEO Grants for astronomers, we can help save the world.
