Hubble telescope pictures!

Came across this the other day - you can download in a convenient zip file the top 100 images created by the hubble project.

Makes for a good scrolling Window saver.

Someone needs to invent Warp drive dammit

The HST is a fine telescope. The glimpse of eta Carinae in 1996 says it all, imho.

What is, "Warp drive dammit", please, fbcompany? ed. Smile

I think he means that we need the "warp drive" used in science fiction stories so that we can finally get out into deep space ourselves.

Just used this http://www.spacetelescope.org/images/screen/heic0604a.jpg for my new wallpaper. Thanks, beautiful pictures from the Hubble.

Those are really awesome! Only reason I never use those images as wallpaper is because it always seems partially fuzzy and not clear, but of course there are limitations to it's quality, but that's why I use artist renderings of celestial objects!

If you can find so called "Ultra High Quality" images, which are basically like 3000x2000 pixels, you can use them and shrink them down to fit your screen. The effect is a merging of pixels that eliminates some noise and makes it look nicer. But I do agree it can be hard to find good clear images for wallpapers. Fortunately Hubble (among others) produces lots and lots of fine images. I will be sad to see it go when they finally abandon it (2009?).
