Angry Red Galaxy Threatens...

...well, not us. It's 37 million light years away.  Hopefully there is something else to eat or exploit between there and here.

Visible and infrared images of M51, the "Whirlpool Galaxy"

 The red in the image on the right is interstellar dust. Do they have interstellar huskies to make interstellar dust bunnies, I wonder?  It doesn't take a lot of husky to fill a lot of space with fuzz:

 Anyway, go do yourself a favor and go look at some of the other exquisite photos here.
