Hubble on the Beach (D300_37366)

Hubble on the Beach (D300_37366)

When I look at this photo, I am reminded of how our understanding the largest structures in the universe is informed by our understanding of the smallest structures. For example, knowing a star means knowing the hydrogen atom. What can we learn about nebulas and galaxies at the far reaches of the cosmos from a jellyfish lying on a Salt Spring Island beach in British Columbia?
