Pretty amazing. The distances are so vast that we can't with present technology even go to something outside our own solar system.

I downloaded those Hubble images a few years ago. Some 40 megs each. Did it on an old 95 system on dial up. It took all night just for one image.

For sure they are some amazing images.

This illustrates one of my biggest problems with religion, our lack of significance. That someone living the merest fraction of time in an infinitesimally small corner of the cosmos could know the nature of all existence and its purpose just seems hubristic to me. God built way too much universe for us to play in.
