Hooray for Hubble

NASA announced today that they will send a shuttle mission to the Hubble Telescope in 2008 to give it some much-needed repairs. Without the repairs, failing components on the telescope would render it useless. The scheduled repairs will keep it operational through 2013. This is great news for scientists and astronomy buffs everywhere. To celebrate, I give you The Sombrero Galaxy in Infrared Light:



And for good measure, I'll include the Cat's Eye Nebula:

Dude, this is freaking awesome! I'd ask where they are taken, but giving coordinates in space to one as unlearned as I would be somewhat fruitless, I suppose. Very cool pics!
 
That cat's eye nebula is really cool.
