Space exploration, in particular the scheduled expeditions to Mars, is under contant threat from cost-conscious politicians. NASA is thus acutely aware that it needs the public on its side, and one way is to involve the public as much as possible in its affairs. The result is one of the most fascinating sites on the Web - this picture of Saturn is just one of many taken by NASA of the solar system and further outreaches of Space.
Many are taken from the Hubble space telescope, so you can see things never seen by human eyes until a few months ago. And there are also pictures of spacecraft and details of of NASA activities.The NASA Image Gallery is at observe.ivv.nasa.gov/observe/image_gallery/image_gallery.html.
