Check Out How and Why Astronomers Make Gorgeous Space Images [Video]

Spoiler alert: It's because they're so dang pretty.

Have you ever wondered how exactly those telescopes in space capture such stunning images of all the wonders the Universe holds? PBS Off Book, a video series has thoughtfully interviewed a number of astronomers and scientists about how it’s done, and why these images are so important in the grand scheme of human society and knowledge. Spoiler alert: It’s because they’re so dang pretty.

Featuring Emily Rice (American Museum of Natural History), Zolt Levay (Space Telescope Science Institute), and David Hogg (New York University), as well as a bunch of images from NASA and the Space Telescope Science Institute.
