The Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC), a satellite galaxy of our Milky Way, taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. At the center of the region is a brilliant star cluster called NGC 346. The NGC 346 cluster at the center contains dozens of hot, blue, high-mass stars, more than half of the known high-mass stars in the entire SMC galaxy.

Looking at the hubble... space pictures makes me feel really small... then i look at ants and think they're really small... then i think about how small an atom is... and its quarks... I wonder if somewhere somehow the universe is really small...
