M101 was also one of the original spiral nebulae observed by Lord Rosse’s large 19th century telescope, the Leviathan of Parsontown. M101 shares this modern telescopic field of view with spiky foreground stars within the Milky Way, an...

I want to say the British Airways scheme looks better than Emirates’ scheme on a Boeing 777-300ER, but I am an Emirates fan and I think it’s half way to looking as good as Emirates!
