The James Webb Space Telescope produces the most detailed images we have ever seen of space, of *things* in space - like stars, and nebulas and dust, and what not. Looking at these pictures released in 2022 by NASA, CSA and ESA (= a LOT of people making this possible) is truly mind blowing and also immediately made us think: it’s so Riso-printable! And of course Riso printing delivers the same millions-of-light-years-resolution as the infrared JWST. Obviously.
Sticking to three colors—Cornflower, Orange and Black—we reproduced “Pillars of Creation”, “Southern Ring Nebula” and “Tarantula Nebula”, available both as individual prints and as a trio (it’s a bargain!).
Pillars of Creation is the one that kind of looks like galloping horses.

The Southern Ring Nebula is the egg one.

Tarantula Nebula is the one which makes you think about how weird it is that the actual stars look like clichee stars.

The three images were processed by us through the Spectrolite App — thank you for this great open source tool!
