KNOW || SCIENCE: NYT covers A Guide to the Cosmos

If you're as fascinated by the universe as I am, then you will love these photos that have been graciously compiled in Far Out: A Space-Time Chronicle by Michael Benson. New York Times just did a piece in its Science section about Benson's work and added in a gorgeous slideshow filled with 16 photos of nebulas and galaxies. I've captured a few here. I've added the book to my Amazon wish list and have saved these beauties for future desktop backgrounds. The universe is so glorious and nothing is as beautiful as that is left to nature.
