Not all the people is curious about what happens around them or in the galaxy. It is not they do not like to know if not they do not want to see. Sometimes, life is easier if you get your eyes blinded and let others will guide you. That could be effortless but in long term it is not practical.

Talking about curiosities. Have you ever thought why pictures from space, taken by Hubble, are so beautiful? They have this beautiful colors… Wait a second, twenty-five years ago when the Hubble was launched it only had black and white cameras. It has not been any secret mission to reach the telescope and to change the cameras, isn’t it? Well, maybe we have missed that film… I am joking. There is an explanation, almost, for everything and if you click here National Geographic and  Zoltan Levay will explain you how they get this beautiful colors from a picture. It is all science!
