Default Aligned Galaxies


This NASA/ESA Hubble image shows a pair of overlapping galaxies called NGC 3314. While the two galaxies look as if they are in the midst of a collision, this is in fact a trick of perspective: the two are in chance alignment from our vantage point.

Looks like someone was playing with layers in Photoshop.

Excellent plasty... thanks for posting!

And to think that George W. Bush wanted to abandon Hubble and let it burn up in the atmosphere. Once a stupid moronic prick always a stupid moronic prick... or is brain-dead corrupt wanker more apropos??!!!
