Space #13


You see the brightness of the stars and are drawn to them and to their reflected light upon other celestial objects but space itself is dark, cold and mostly empty. All of those beautiful nebulae of swirling colors are invisible up close.  Distance provides enough starlight to illuminate floating gases and dust and make those incredible deep space photographs. Space, though,  is actually the stuff that is in between universes, stars, and worlds. Its immensity keeps those other places from interacting with our Earth. At least it did, until someone, or something, managed to find a way to travel faster than light.
