HotAIR - MAY WE RECOMMEND -- The Cosmic Finger of Friendship


The Cosmic Finger of Friendship

items worth a trip to the library

by Stephen Drew, AIR staff

The Hubble Space Telescope has produced some remarkable images of distant parts of the universe. Perhaps none is more remarkable than this photograph of the Keyhole Nebula.

Investigator Ian Davis has written to inform us that the upper left corner of the image contains the best extant photograph of the famous Cosmic Finger of Friendship.

This image was produced by the Hubble Heritage Team (NASA/AURA/STScI) using data collected by the Hubble Heritage Team with the assistance of N. Walborn (STScI), R. Barba (La Plata Obs., Argentina), and A. Caulet (France).
