"Dark shapes with bright edges winging their way through dusty NGC 6188 are tens of light-years long. The emission nebula is found near the edge of an otherwise dark large molecular cloud in the southern constellation Ara, about 4,000 light-years away." Awesome space photography full of blue, cyan, red, magenta, fuchsia ...and really a billion other colors.

A dying star throws a cosmic tantrum in this combined image from Nasa's Spitzer Space Telescope and the Galaxy Evolution Explorer. The star's dusty outer layers are unraveling into space, glowing from the intense ultraviolet radiation being pumped out by the hot stellar core. This object, called the Helix nebula, lies 650 light years away in the constellation of Aquarius

The Lagoon Nebula (also known as Messier 8/M8 or NGC 6523) is a giant interstellar cloud and emission nebula located in the constellation Sagittarius approximately 5,000 light-year from earth. The nebula contains a number of Bok globules, which can be seen as dark, collapsing clouds of gaseous material. This Particular image shows a star forming central region in infrared and was captured by the VISTA telescope at ESO’s Paranal Observatory in Chile. Credit: ESO/VISTA

The Sombrero Galaxy.This massive, beautiful galaxy is over 50,000 light years from tip to tip. Where it gets its name is pretty obvious.

A pre-flight CT scan of a NASA A7L spacesuit, the type of suit worn during the Apollo missions.    These scans were apparently taken to ensure that there were no pins or needle points accidentally left in the apparel that could puncture the pressure suite.
