'Space, the Final Frontier' part of the opening for every science fiction lover's favorite TV program and several movies, Star Trek.
Since the beginning of Human time, mankind has gazed at the heavens and wondered at what they saw. The first humans to gaze down upon the earth have also wondered at what they viewed. The heavens and the earth are so beautiful, words cannot really describe what can be seen.
We have all followed the many voyages sponsored by NASA, thrilled to the successful voyages and grieved for the brave souls who have lost their lives trying to attain knowledge of the void that surrounds our world.
Every now and then I find a web site that has managed to capture some of the beauties of the heavens (and earth). A few of them will be listed here.
