    With the lack of contrast and all the shadows in the picture, I did not see the object at first. It wasn't quite what I expected, but makes sense after a little reflection.

    I have one minor nitpick with the page: NASA misspelled Isaac Asimov as “Issac Asimov”. At least they spelled Asimov correctly.

    In the popular TV series "Babylon 5" it is the location of the featured space station; as a nod to the show, hidden within the background nebula in this artist concept is a small silhouette that may be familiar to fans of the series. Can you find it?

    started a topic Oh man, this is priceless.

    Oh man, this is priceless.

    When someone recently read what’s on this link they complained to NASA – stating the artists should be blacklisted.

    The response?

    The Director of Communications at the Spitzer Centre thanked them – and has today added a new description beneath the image on the NASA, Spitzer and JPL websites – which includes the following.

    The person who was doing the complaining at one point said the NASA press officer who originally got back to them was a "Trekkie" though later said it was only a joke. lol. Talk about a backfire.
