NASA Releases Beautiful Images of Nearby Galaxies With Beautiful Video Explaining Beautiful Images

Beautiful images of space are great to look at, but sometimes it's nice to have a NASA scientist tell you what's what.

 

We love a good space image here at Geekosystem, like the new mosaics of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) and the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) galaxies from NASA’s Swift satellite. We’re not astrophysicists, just geeks who love space, so sometimes we don’t know exactly what we’re looking at. That’s why it’s great when NASA does stuff like having Swift team member Stefan Immler explain it like he does in this video. Warning: The pan-and-zoom nature of the video makes it slightly hypnotic.
