Take a look at the most terrifying thing you have ever seen. This is called the Witch Head Nebula, and it is 100% real.
Now, most astronomical objects don’t look anything at all like their names, unless you have been staring through a telescope for 16 straight hours, or are on some powerful narcotics. But this? Look at this. This is totally a witch’s head. This is evil, incarnate.
I want to visit every congressman who wants to cut NASA funding and show them this photo. “Listen. You shouldn’t support NASA because of science, or research, or The Children. You need to support space research because somewhere, somehow, in outer space, this thing is waiting for us. We must kill it before it kills us. Shoot it with lasers, nuke it from orbit, something. Because rest assured: The Witch Head knows where we live. It knows that we know about it. And it will destroy us all.”
