Just imagine living somewhere in space that was interesting. Like NASA-nebula-images interesting. Imagine living on a planet orbiting that pink star in the middle of the Eagle Nebula.
Not the large one to the left, but the little small one right there in the middle. Imagine looking up in the light-sky and seeing these indescribably huge pillars of gas stretching into infinity.
I think that would be awesome.
NASA is scanning all the old pictures they took when they were on the moon and releasing them to the public. This I think is a good thing, mainly because I just think it is a thing that needs to be done.
What has me impressed is the size of those images. I mean, I work with many layered photoshop files regularly and those buggers tend to get big.
These are single layer greyscale (extended, but still) images. Want to take a guess at the size of the raw? 1.3GB. Yep, that’s Giga, as in big. Here go have a look.
You will never have want for large resolution desktop images ever again, even if they are kind of boring. And I thought my image files were large…
