Look at this pic to see all the beautiful real life galaxies:

]Nearly as deep as the Hubble Ultra Deep Field, which contains approximately 10,000 galaxies, this incredible image from the Hubble Space Telescope reveals thousands of colorful galaxies in the constellation of Leo (The Lion). This vibrant view of the early universe was captured as part of the Frontier Fields campaign, which aims to investigate galaxy clusters in more detail than ever before, and to explore some of the most distant galaxies in the universe.

Galaxy clusters are massive. They can have a tremendous impact on their surroundings, with their immense gravity warping and amplifying the light from more distant objects. This phenomenon, known as gravitational lensing, can help astronomers to see galaxies that would otherwise be too faint, aiding our hunt for residents of the primordial universe.


Beautiful. To think each one of those galaxies contains millions of planets and stars. And this is only the 10,000 galaxies we can see, let alone the billions that likely exist in our universe.

There is definitely life out there somewhere, we'll just likely never get to visit it. We really need to invent something like the Mass Effect relays or Star Trek's warp drive or we'll never know.

Somewhere out there, there is a chance there is a planet out there that made a decent Ninja Turtles movie.

Not to mention that's also only looking in one direction. Now if they were able to get a 360 view. o.O

Always love the ones that are "close" enough to make out the shape of them. For all we know, someone might be out there getting photos of our galaxy and know what it truly looks like.

:lol:

Or - going on a theory that the universe is just a messed up place - a planet of people who sort of look like them, making movies about four mutant ape-like people who sort of look like us, and they, like us, are similarly unhappy with it. :tlol:
