This site, from one of NASA's premier telescopes, should offer plenty to users with even a passing interest in astronomy and space exploration. The site features a collection of amazing images from the Chandra orbiting X-ray observatory that were recently unveiled at a meeting of the American Astronomical Society. Highlights include a crossbow-shaped shock wave of warped gas, a jet that emanates from the center of the galaxy and extends across 360 thousand light years toward a brilliant hot spot, and a hot bubble of matter surrounding a dying star. The images are offered as thumbnails which link to a larger image with a description. "Handouts," images with descriptions that can be printed on a single page, are also available.
