astro-image of the day: dust pillar in the Carina Nebula

Wow. Why can't SF shows and movies spend a little time exploring things like this? Don't leave out the sense of wonder we feel about amazing things in space! Wouldn't that be more interesting than SF-troped soap operas?

EDIT: Oh my, check out this amazing page with a full-width, zoomable, interactive image of which this is a slice. Double-wow.
