The Milky Way from 15,000 Feet

The Milky Way by  Anton Jankovoy c. Caters
An incredible picture of the Milky Way, taken by Ukranian photographer Anton Jankovoy in Nepal. More of his pictures here. So see the larger version - the picture here really doesn't do it justice.

"It is the most persistent and greatest adventure in human history, this search to understand the universe, how it works and where it came from. It is difficult to imagine that a handful of residents of a small planet circling an insignificant star in a small galaxy have as their aim a complete understanding of the entire universe, a small speck of creation truly believing it is capable of comprehending the whole."

-Murray Gell-Mann, as cited by Clifford Pickover in Archimedes to Hawking
