The wonders of space: incredible photos of our Galaxy and of the distant worlds

How often do we turn our eyes to the sky and let our minds wander in the immensity of space. After all, we only see tiny dots, sometimes hidden by the lights of our cities, but we are actually looking at stars, planets, clusters of nebulae traveling at great speed through the cosmos. Modern technology allows us to observe worlds far away, far outside our solar system, revealing things we never thought possible to see imprinted in a photograph.

We are setting off on a journey that will take us light years away, buckle up, you may not come back.
