Amazing!


It's very hard to imagine all the crazy things that things really are like. 

Electrons act like waves.. no they don't exactly, they act like particles.. no they don't exactly.

Words and ideas can change the world.

I'm sure it's enhanced for effect. Not to mention time-lapsed. I couldn't find the description that usually goes with an APOD picture. All I was able to find was the image.

Yeah those pictures and most pictures of Space are time lapsed and they take in so much light to give it that effect

Found this, not sure it's even related but probably taken from at or near same location. Pretty awesome video when full screen.
