This is a picture of the wonderful Planetary Nebulae NGC6302 clicked by the Hubble Space Telescope in September 2009. A Planetary Nebulae is the end phase of a Dying Star where it blows off loads of gas and a gust of material forming delicate spectacular structures in space.
One fine day, after some billions of years, even our Sun will die – may be not as spectacularly brilliant as this one, but still, it will. And as the Astronomer Phil Plait puts it – ‘I often wonder if humans, or our nearest equivalent at that time, will be watching as it happens (as the Sun dies). Hopefully they’ll be peering out the rear view window of their spaceships as they find another system to settle in.’
