After a May overhaul by the space shuttle Atlantis' crew, the Hubble Space Telescope is back in business and judging by the first images sent by the iconic space telescope, the state-of-the-art upgrade was a success. Topping the list of new views are colorful multiwavelength pictures of far-flung galaxies, a densely packed star cluster, an eerie "pillar of creation" and a "butterfly" nebula. An eWEEK look at some first images. (All photos courtesy of NASA)

yer weccum, mr. mygrits -- is your name of Greek origin?

Seriously, I am awe-stricken by the detail and intensity and majesty of all this. I've already done a painting of one of them ... but I can't top nature itself.
