Astronomically awesome backpack

  • Carry your stuff in something 7,500 light-years away
  • Image taken by the Hubble Space Telescope
  • Interior laptop / tablet sleeve padded on all sides

We love this image. That's why we put it on a backpack. But we're not going to tell you about it. We're going to leave that to the experts:

This turbulent cosmic pinnacle lies within a tempestuous stellar nursery called the Carina Nebula, located 7,500 light-years away in the southern constellation Carina. The image celebrates the 20th anniversary of Hubble's launch and deployment into an orbit around Earth.

You know, the first time we heard that the colors in the Hubble Space Telescope's images were added for effect we were like, "Aw, maaaaan. You mean space isn't pink and purple and aqua?" Or, well, it isn't necessarily those colors. We felt a little cheated. But then we thought, "Hey. How exactly do you land a job colorizing space?" We could totally do that. Let us show you our crayon masterpiece portfolio.
