    Apparently nobody else is interested in this but, just in case there's a lurker out there, here's a comparison of old vs new Hubble:

    I feel insignificant after looking at those.

    Just imagine this: the James Webb Space Telescope (previously called, rightly, the 'Next Generation Space Telescope'), due to be launched in 2014, will make even the new Hubble look pretty bad by comparison. It will have a mirror almost 6 times bigger, and reside about 1 million miles from earth (to avoid interference from earth transmissions).

    Here's a pretty good comparison:

    Re: First post-repair Hubble Pic released

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that images like this are not exactly how they would appear to the eye? Is that correct. I think that the colors are added to the image, and represent different elements, or wavelengths of light...or something. Basically, that the colors we see in this images do not exactly exist as such. Is that right?

    Are you sure that Ashton Kutcher didn't take this with his Cannon Rebel II?
