Mars Approaching Earth
Can you believe it has been 25 years sine they launched the Hubble Telescope?  And remember the problems they had once they looked at the first photos?  They were all blurry!

We all thought the governments $36 million was wasted by some idiots who forgot to test the lens!!

But they worked that out with a set of "glasses" for the camera
The Cat's Eye Nebula (NGC 6543)

and black holes were proven, black energy was discovered, and thousands upon thousands of photos of galaxies far, far away have shown us the beauty of the not so near places in our neighborhood.
