NASA is killing it these days with images from outer space. If your feed feels a bit limited by selfies and sunsets, you should definitely follow NASA on Instagram or Facebook and infuse your feed with otherworldly wonder. It really can be grounding to remember there is literally a whole universe (or more than one? a potentially infinite number of universes? Wait, what?) out there. In the meantime, here are ten phenomenal images from NASA to remind us we are so infinitesimally small and the world (and universe) is a beautiful place to call home.
