A couple of years ago we used a picture of the Hubble Space Teles­cope in one of our ads for our grinding machine Multigrind ® CB. Now here is a wonderful picture that Hubble has recorded with it’s wide field camera in 2009. What you can see is a so-called Butterfly Nebula with a wingspan of more than 3 light-years and a surface temperature of 250,000 degrees Cel­sius. NGC, the correct name for this outer space beauty, is about 4,000 light-years away from us.

Of course you don’t have to travel that far to see us at the PARIS AIR SHOW (June 17 to 23). You’ll find us in hall 4, booth B17 and we’ll show you some quite attractive grinding solutions for the aerospace industry and some beautiful components.

See you in Paris!
