    If you have ever questioned the enormity and the drama of our universe, these photos will set you straight.

    The Royal Museums Greenwich in London selected these 17 stunning images, from more than 2,700 entries, to be considered for their annual Astronomy Photographer of the Year Competition. The winner will be announced on Sept. 17, after which the winning images will be exhibited at the Royal Observatory Greenwich.

    Always impressed with earth and universe related topics and pictures.
    Today's paper had an article on the probe that was launch 10 years ago and has only just now reached Pluto.
    To scale that down its like leaving your house and only making it to the end of the block in 10 years.
