Space is an amazing place. Mankind has dreamt of exploring the distant edges of the Universe since we first set foot on the moon. Yet most of it remains far from our grasp and we can only dream of the delights and wonders beyond our reach.
Despite that, NASA’s probes, long-range satellites and super telescopes have seen many of the interesting things out there – stars, black holes, other planets. There’s an incredible place up there in the stars.
For years now, space organisations like NASA have commissioned artists to create representations of the wonders beyond the stars aimed at exciting the average layman to the possibility of space exploration.
We’ve rounded up some amazing images that show what could be out there in the vastness of space and just how astonishingly beautiful the Universe could be.
