30 Amazing Images of Space

Space images are sights to behold. It really is a pity that the human kind has seen nothing even close to the slightest hint of the size it possesses. Astronomy has helped make some inroads, some might argue. However, 96 percent of it still remains undiscovered and it is expected to stay that way for many years to come. Until some miracle happens and that theory is proven wrong, we can only rely on satellite images to praise the beauty it packs. So then, it’s time to get lost in the galaxies and star clusters. Here’s presenting a total of 30 beautiful images of space.
