When someone recently read what’s on this link they got a bit annoyed and complained to NASA – stating the artists should be blacklisted.

The response?

The Director of Communications at the Spitzer Centre thanked them – and added a new description beneath the image on the NASA, Spitzer and JPL websites – which includes the following.



In the popular TV series "Babylon 5" it is the location of the featured space station; as a nod to the show, hidden within the background nebula in this artist concept is a small silhouette that may be familiar to fans of the series. Can you find it?

I guess that idea backfired a bit. ; )

Aye, much hilarity that the person then decided that they should be congratulated for getting the nod to B5 mentioned.
Can ya say, DOH! :p

Yeah. That was kind of hi-larious of him to suggest that.
(Just noticed, I need to practise how to spell nod)
