blue streak by (Elaine Catling)

A colour-corrected image of the the second largest and second brightest globular cluster, or tight grouping of stars, seen in Earth’s night sky. Called NGC 104 or 47 Tucanae, the light for this image was gathered in 1986 by ESO’s 1-m Schmidt Telescope at the La Silla observatory in Chile. The telescope is now decommissioned.

"Who is more humble? The scientist who looks at the universe with an open mind and accepts whatever the universe has to teach us, or somebody who says everything in this book must be considered the literal truth and never mind the fallibility of all the human beings involved?" ∞ Carl Sagan (via inutileune)
