Photo was produced by the Hubble Heritage Team (NASA/AURA/STScI) using data collected by the Hubble Heritage Team with the assistance of N. Walborn (STScI), R. Barba (La Plata Obs., Argentina), and A. Caulet (France). Cover design by Peaco Todd. (To see the front cover enlarged, click on the image.)

The features marked with a star (*) are based entirely on material taken straight from standard research (and other Official and Therefore Always Correct) literature. Many of the other articles are genuine, too, but we don't know which ones.
