Dangit. I thought I had found a new wallpaper by the sound of the thread title. Not that this isn't awesomely cool.

Can someone who knows more about things than me explain the black dots in the centre of the stars:
Here's a picture of what I'm talking about:

Is it just the way the photos are taken? Or is it aliens?

Problem with the photo. The person below you said it's probably a planet passing in front of the star relative to us, but the likelihood of this is astronomically low (haha.)
My God, it's full of stars!

Just think, the reapers are lying in wait to revert all life back down to its primordial stages, oh John Shepard where out thou?

Well whenever I want to feel insignificant, I can just look at this and be reminded the the smallest dots on here are thousands of time larger than the planet we spend our pathetic, meaningless existence on.

Which galaxy is this?

I think it's gotta be the Milky Way. They wouldn't be able to get this high quality picture from this angle of any other galaxy.

This thread deserves more views. Bask in the majesty of the cosmos! Well in this case a SINGLE galaxy among billions and billions...

I wonder about this too. Can't be planets. (chance too small and too many dots, dots too large, all dots perfectly in the center of the star)
Anyone know? "Probably" isn't good enough.
When some stranger on the internet says it is so, it must be so.

I so want to view this but can't. Damn the company blocking sites!
The content of this signature is pretty much irrelevant

Wow, that area in the top side of the direct center looks incredible, it looks so ridiculously compacted zoomed up but all that stuffs probably millions of miles apart.

Just some visual artefact from however the images was captured?

So many stars. How many of these stars have planets orbiting them. How many of these planets are the right distance away to have the necessities of life. People say that there aliens don't exist, then look at this amazing picture.

Found what I think is the remains of a supernova. If I'm wrong and made myself look like an idiot, let me know.
The area to the right of it's pretty sweet, too. If you can make out the position of my screen on the upper right, check it out. (A bit to the left of the single empty square near the top left of galactic center)
