Cool Images from the Hubble Space Telescope

The latest images from the upgraded camera on the Hubble Space Telescope can be found at http://science.nasa.gov/headlines/y2...htm?list953548.

They are all pretty spectacular, and spectacularly pretty.

The photos of Eta Carinae are wonderful! Well, they all are but the explosions are really beautiful.
