Ode to Herschel’s Images

Yesterday, I reported that the Herschel Space Observatory was on its last legs.  Today, I present you some images taken by Herschel during its lifetime.  Enjoy.

Well, if I have done everything right clicking on any of the images above will take you to the page on the European Space Agency’s Hershel web site that has all of the images and more information about each one.  If that doesn’t work click here and it will take you to the page.
