Happy Birthday, Hubble

Today is the 15th birthday of the Hubble telescope. To celebrate, the European Space agency and NASA have released some new images of the spiral galaxy M51 and the Eagle Nebula. The images are downloadable, and they come in two flavours: high-res and huge. The latter results in a JPEG file of 42 MB for M51!

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
