Outer Space

I just signed up for NASA's Daily Image to be sent to my email address, and I've been perusing outer space on www.nasaimages.org.   I'm in awe over the images -- we are the first earthers, the very first ones!  to see the planets, the galaxies, all that cool stuff.

Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars
Aren't they beautiful!
One of the first photos taken by NASA of the moon.

Jupiter, with several of its moons.

You can download any of the images from the site.  The resolution varies considerably, based partly on when the images were captured and the technology available at the time.  You can also like it on Facebook and get daily updates.  Some of the images are photos, some are artists' renditions, but they are all amazing.
