Nasa Nebula wallpapers

Like many of you, I’m a sucker for fancy new wallpapers of neat looking stuff, and if there’s one place that routinely cranks out some of the most mind-blowing amazing imagery that is perfect for wallpapers, it’s NASA. This little mini-collection is a handful of freakishly gorgeous pictures of various nebulas around the universe, and because they’re from NASA every image is available to download at extremely high resolution, making them ideal fits for just about any iOS device, PC, or Mac you have. Don’t be stuck with a boring background picture, grab a fancy nebula shot and be amazed every time you look at your desktop.

Update: it turns out Zeta Oph isn’t a nebula, it’s a runaway star (whatever that is), but it looks amazing as a desktop picture either way!

    What’s the best way to scale these down to your screen’s resolution while retaining as much of the picture as possible? Thanks in advance.
