This spectacular collection of space photographs combines breathtaking digitalized images from the historic Mariner, Viking and Voyager probes with stunning photographs from the Apollo lunar missions, and ground-based observatories.
Gathered from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, The Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the California Institute of Technology, the Royal Observatory, Edinburgh, and the Hansen Planetarium, this awesome display of cosmic spectacles is a journey to the early days of the cosmos. The latest and most ambitious in a string of space observatories is the James Webb Space Telescope, launched in late December of 2021. The JWST is expected to allow us to see even farther into the birth of the universe.
Simply put, the main difference between galaxies and nebulae are an extreme difference in size, as well as their basic structure. A nebula is a cloud of dust and gas, usually tens to hundreds of light years across. A galaxy is much larger — usually thousands to hundreds of thousands of light years across. Nebulae are one of the many things that galaxies are made of, along with stars, black holes, cosmic dust, dark matter and more.
