Hubble Turns 16

Today was the 16th birthday of the Hubble telescope. To commemorate it, the Hubble team released this image of a galaxy known as M82:

M82 is one of my all time favourite galaxies for some reason so such an astounding picture really made my day. Eventually, I intend to write up a lengthy post about it as it's a very interesting place. However, I'll hold that off until I've finished writing about the things going on in the solar system as well as a few other topics that help to establish a better understanding of the topics necessary for a detailed description of this dynamic galaxy.

But I wanted to post this picture for everyone to see and to wish Hubble a sweet 16!
