    Great post. In the first picture you can see the effect of 'Gravitational Lensing'.

    (A gravitational lens is a distribution of matter between a distant light source and an observer, that is capable of bending the light from the source as the light travels towards the observer.)

    Pale Blue Dot is a photograph of planet Earth taken on February 14, 1990, by the Voyager 1 space probe from a record distance of about 6 billion kilometers. There was not huge scientific gain in making the image yet what it represents is in my opinion simply mind blowing. Sometimes I like to read these word by Carl Sagen while looking at it and I wanted to share this with you:

    [Consider again that pale blue dot]. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there-on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam... :Carl Sagan

    Quite a serious post we probably shouldn't hijack it. Here is another pic that amazes me:
