We have had the eye, now the hand, courtesy of NASA and the Chandra C-Ray Observatory

From the Telegraph online (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/howaboutthat/5152179/Hand-of-God-captured-by-Nasa-observatory.html)


Dubbed the Hand of God, following on from an 'Eye of God' image released by European astronomers in February, the nebula pictured in the new X-ray was produced by the pulsar B1509, which is about 17,000 light years away.

I think the Trek covered that. Image: Memory Alpha :: "Who Mourns for Adonais?" (http://memory-alpha.org/en/wiki/Image:Apollo%27s_hand_grips_the_Enterprise%2C_rema stered.jpg)


Apollo's "hand" grips the USS Enterprise. The hand was actually a force field of conventional composition, but on unusual wavelengths.
