Amazing Hubble photo of Saturn's rings.
Photoshopping is taught at the University of Arizona as well, I guess.
What makes you think it's photoshopped?
They're not Photoshopped, they're taken using different instruments in different wavelengths of light.
@dowingba: Because I just can't believe Saturn looks that way when you wake up after a long travel and look out of your Space Shuttle window in the morning.
The reason pics of Saturn tend to look flat and geometric is because, currently, they're taken from so far away. I remember viewing the planet through one of our university telescopes back in college. Damn thing looked like a stencil. I was hella disappointed.
Cassini-Huygens will change all that.
yeah, that's really what it looks like in the middle pic. pretty effin awesome.
