The processes behind perfecting a pretty image of a galaxy from Hubble.
Remarkably similar to the image processing I used to do – only for me it was looking at the tiniest subcellular organelles with a laser scanning confocal microscope. Just a matter of scale really.
Gives me a sense of oneness with my fellow scientists…
The next time you want to put a poem on your iffy Photoshop job of a galaxy or nebula, remember it took someone hours of editing just like this to make the original. It’s like salting your food at a Michelin restaurant.
So, I dunno, at least make it some T.S. Eliot or something worth all that effort.
