It’s never a bad idea to start the day by viewing an image that just makes your jaw drop. This image, taken by the Hubble Space Telescope and released yesterday, shows the NGC 3603 nebula–an area of the Milky Way that is home to some of the galaxy’s biggest stars. (Does that make it the Hollywood of Heaven?) There’s also lots of dust and gas (so maybe it’s the New York of Heaven) that will eventually become stars. At any rate, this is some picture.–David Schonauer
