Take a break
Put on some lo-fi beats, forget everything, and just roam around the universe for a while.
First stop: the Pillars of Creation, where new stars are birthed out of immense columns of gas and dust.
Imagine floating aimlessly through the Bubble Nebula, a stellar nursery 8,000 lightyears away from Earth.
Cruise by the twinkling blue stars of the Small Megellanic Cloud, a young galaxy 200,000 lightyears away. Note other reddish-tinted galaxies in the background.
Catch the electric Veil Nebula, a section of the outer shell of a supernova, just 1400 lightyears away.
Dream about the whirling Twin Jet Nebula, a bipolar nebula with two stars at its center.
Aim your mental spaceship towards sparkling Messier 2, a group of thousands of stars 55,000 lightyears away bound together by gravity.
Immerse yourself in Hubble’s Ultra Deep Field, one of the most famous views of the universe. Each bright smudge is not a star but an entire galaxy.
Bask in the glory of star-forming region NGC 2467, with its roiling orange clouds of gas and electric blue young stars.
Bundle up before you head over to the Boomerang Nebula, which at minus 485 degrees Fahrenheit, is the coldest object found in the universe so far.
