Shouldn't it be "Pics that don't make you laugh but are still cool"? Anyway, really looking forward to this thread.

I approve of this thread.



I always thought this picture was awesome. It's called "Pale Blue Dot", and was taken by Voyager 1 in 1990. Voyager 1 was launched in '77, so it'd been travelling for 13 years when this picture was taken. That picture stuck with me since the first time I saw it. Awesome stuff indeed.

Gorgeous! Thanks for sharing!

You wouldn't happen to have a higher-res version, by chance?

Is that thermal water?
I'm not sure, but a quick google search says the waters are generally 70° Fahrenheit(roughly 21° Celsius) year round. I don't think there are any hot springs in Arizona though.

Nope, sorry. :(

I'd love one myself.

This poster pulses with an appeal so broad the typical restraints of our societies fall by the wayside.
