Last in the series of space images, this is the Ant Nebula taken by Hubble. Pretty amazingly cool.

Further detail: this is not some nebula named the "Ant Nebula", but from the wire services caption --

From ground-based telescopes, this cosmic object -- the glowing remains of a dying, Sun-like star -- resembles the head and thorax of a garden-variety ant. This NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image, released on February 1, 2001, of the so-called "ant nebula" (Menzel 3, or Mz3) shows even more detail, revealing the "ant's" body as a pair of fiery lobes protruding from the dying star.
