Our Living Universe

If we were looking for signs of life elsewhere in the galaxy, we sure weren't looking for this! This photo of the "DNA Nebula" at the centre of our own Milky Way Galaxy is old news (NASA 2006), but remains captivating. Is this the DNA of our living universe?

Considering Darwin's 200th birthday just passed, I thought it's nice for us to remind ourselves how precious life as we know it is. Life is beautiful, be here now and cherish every moment!
