Amazing Cosmic Art for Your Walls [18 Pics]

Michael Benson works at the intersection of art and science. He colors, edits and composes multiple raw images that are freely available for download though NASA's website, producing seamless digital C prints of landscapes beyond direct human experience. It's like being where the space probe went, and seeing it with your own eyes. Simply breathtaking!
